Today I interviewed and hired a second virtual assistant.
Phillippa Goodwin is the first and is responsible for:
- business travel
- business accommodation
- telephone meetings
- Skype meetings
- physical meetings with clients, strategic alliance partners and IDH practices
- client liaison
- invoicing and collections
- liaison with my accountant
Dawn Lane will be the second and responsible for
- maintenance of personal and professional cash flow forecasts
- day to day cash flow personal management
- settlement of all domestic expenses
and the reason is – I have had enough of arriving home on a Thursday or Friday to a mountain of domestic “stuff” that has to be actioned before I start work again after the weekend.
The attentive may note that I invested over 5 hours in personal financial management yesterday, the Bank Holiday.
I do not intend to abdicate from financial management – but Dawn has been selected (by Phillippa I hasten to add) as she is close by geographically and we will be able to meet physically where necessary.
Its going to take a few weeks for all the pieces to drop into place.
But it’s part of my ongoing determination to recreate a balanced and prosperous life.
Oh – and by the way – this is blog post number 1001!
So let me not forget my other unsung hero, Kimberly Black, without whom my on-line life would not exist.
Next challenge – somebody to do the ironing!
