This is even more important with a virtual business so make sure that you have clear, measurable goals in place and that your processes and vision are communicated effectively.

How Important Is Emotional Intelligence to Success in Business?
 
Although many ignore it, emotional intelligence is critical to a person’s success in business. The good news is that it can be measured and it can be improved.

Virtual Assistant Startup Zirtual Is “Pausing All Operations”
 
Sad to know that:
:: The hard working assistants received no warning. It was a wham, bam, see ya later situation. Poor way to treat your staff.
:: All the customers who were utilizing the service because of the low monthly rate, are now without an assistant and also given no warning.
 
If you are a Zirtual client, please contract with a reputable virtual administrative professional who cares about you and your business. There are a ton of us out there and we're in this for the long haul.

Introduction
Proudly INTJ, I am a crazy, hip, insanely curious, super enthusiastic administrative consultant who thrives on keeping her clients sane.

I am conventional in a non-conventional industry. I am insanely curious and super enthusiastic .. and I love helping people and small businesses. I am your silent weapon, your office ninja, your partner.

At Out of the the Office, we offer ideas and ways to increase your productivity, decrease your workload and work more efficiently. We nurture a successful business relationship, while continuing to grow as your business partner.

Focused on streamlining your administration, social media planning and execution, as well as creatively offering solutions to your business minutia.

Keep in mind, finding a business partner, an assistant, a secret weapon, is a lot like dating. Most don't generally run to the altar with the first person they date, so take the time to start slowly with an outsourced partner. Overwhelming each other is not healthy for you, for me, or for the industry. Take it slow. Baby steps slow. Build on it. Then we'll rock!

If you succeed, we succeed. So let's make it happen!
