5 Simple Things to Try in Your Business in March
One of the best things about working as a virtual assistant and an Online Business Manager (OBM) is that I get to share my expertise and skills with my clients. I love taking on the role of problem solver in my work and I am excited to do just that on my blog!
This month I am starting a new blog series called 5 Simple Things to Try in Your Business. In these monthly post, I will be sharing resources that I have found while problem-solving in my business or while working with my clients. What I find from my line of work, is that I am always learning, researching and building my capacity from others in my tribe, mentors, industry professionals, gurus, Google and my personal fav, Pinterest ( Check out my Pinterest boards here).
What you can expect to find in these monthly series are lists of various resources from podcasts, blog posts, videos, tutorials and trends that will motivate and inspire you to take your business to the next level.
