Thought of the day…3/25/17

Validation…

We all need to get clear on what we think about each day.  If you are thinking the same thoughts all of the time you will not move forward.  Maybe you are afraid of moving forward…afraid of what you are leaving behind.  If it has been really good then you don’t want to leave that comfortable spot.  If it has’t been really good then you maybe feel that it is what you deserve.

It can be a catch 21 and keep you going around that same mountain for years.

 

Dealing with your aging parents…

Overwhlemed

Growing up I never really thought of how it was going to be when my parents got older.  I saw my mother take care of her mom and uncle in our home, (I am not at that point yet) but it is different when you have the responsibility yourself.

It can be hard dealing with everyday issues and remembering how your parents used to handle the same things when they were younger.  Hearing is a big factor.  When you can’t hear well, (I am starting to experience that myself) things get confusing.

Our parents are all aging just as we are.  It is just as hard for them so it is important to be there for them just as we hope our children will be there for us…

 

personal accomplishments…

self-pic-2-reducedI am an experienced Executive Assistant with over 22 years in the field.  I have extensive experience with all administrative tasks, including scheduling and correspondence.  Having held positions in the mortgage, legal and real estate fields, I am able to tailor my skills to meet the needs of various clients.  I have increased efficiency in several of my assigned roles, and am very effective at teaching new trainees.  I am able to interact directly with potential and existing clients.

            Due to my extensive studies of business applications in high school, I was recommended for my first position to the local bank.  I then progressed from that entry level position to an executive level position, before moving on to becoming an executive assistant for a financial planner.  From there, I acquired my company allowing me to use my talents to assist multiple business owners. 

            In my various roles, I have been responsible for organizing meetings and schedules, as well as being fully certified public notary.

            In addition to my duties as an executive assistant, I am also active in my local Chamber of Commerce providing marketing assistance and promoting local businesses.  I belong to a women’s networking group which provides an atmosphere to further women in their careers, create connections and gain financial freedom.

            With a “seriously?” mantra in mind, I have found that there is nothing too big or strong for me to conquer.  I do not believe in the Oxford Comma and have a passion for finding efficient ways to get things done on my own terms.  I am a hometown girl with strong family connections and a worldly vision that anyone can accomplish anything they set their mind to.
