As I little kid, I wanted to be a sheriff

I didn’t really know what one was as I was living in suburbia in England but I really liked the badge, and the hat.

 

 

 

Little me loved candy floss

When I was bigger I wanted to be an investigative journalist

Exposing corruption and bringing all the wrong ‘uns to justice.  I was a huge fan of the T.V. show Press Gang and I saw myself as a combination of Julia Sawalha and Dexter Fletcher – but Northern.

A surprising intervention thwarted both these career plans

Due to a quirk in the English state school system I found myself in an all-girls school just as my teenage hormones really started to kick in.

 

Me & my teenage hormones

In order to meet boys, or rather a very particular boy who had caught my eye, I joined a local youth drama group.

And dear reader it was a true love affair, spanning many decades – there’s been ups and downs, of course there has but still to this day I love theatre.  As for the spotty youth, his memory and name are as faded as my 1980s stonewashed jeans.

 

 

 

My actual career has mainly been in the creative industries, particularly theatre.

There was a small foray into the financial sector because I wanted to learn more about this area relating to small business such as financial investment and bookkeeping and Company Secretary requirements.  Which I did learn, but I also needed to earn more money because I wanted to buy a flat.

Celebrating my 21st in a theatre lighting booth

Next came an early (I hope) mid-life crisis

So I rented out my lovely flat and headed off on some travelling adventures.  I did odd jobs along the way including trying to help my annoyingly talented friends and family members who were freelancers and even though can do anything, they can’t do everything.  

 

My first solo travel adventure

Word spread through their peers until one day I realised I was in fact a virtual assistant, and that I loved it.

Having worked freelance myself and for mainly small businesses I have knowledge and experience of the day-to-day administration tasks and I like the fact that I get a chance to put it all to good use. 

I love having a broad brief – going from designing a website to doing quarterly bookkeeping in one afternoon

I like wearing multiple hats, even though none of them so far have been a sheriff’s hat, I remain optimistic. I am still able to travel whilst I do this –  in modern parlance I’m a digital nomad but I see myself as a person who has many homes rather than none.  

 

 

 

So it was time to create a website and start telling people that this is what I do and well, here I am.

Finally,  have got to the end of my journey so far and if you have got this far thank you for your patience. 

Drop me a line if you have any questions, I look forward to hearing from you.
