About Virtual Personal Assistant
Hello. My name is Erika and Im a tech-head. Erika For me it all started back in 1986 with my first desktop. It wasnt much, and there wasnt much of a public Internet just us geeks finding out what we could do with this technology. The first time a Sysop chatted with me on a bulletin board, I kinda freaked out. Someone out in the world was taking over my machine to talk to me. It was magical! I was hooked. Technology and software became my Rubics Cube. I became the one at work who wanted to find a better system a faster way to get things done. I had setbacks. Turns out you have to include upper management before you decide to change the order entry process. Theyre picky like that. I was one of the three chosen to fly to Atlanta to learn the new software system, then come home and train the rest of the department. My boss knew I wasnt scared of the technological advance. He knew I would embrace it. And he knew I could teach others what I had learned.
The next big jump for me was 2007 when the iPhone was introduced. I was ecstatic! I could have my phone, MP3 player, and my Palm Pilot all in one machine?! Again, magical! I was one of the first to grab this new tech and run with it. Again, there werent but a few of us nerds with iPhones (and very few apps) but we were having fun figuring out this new frontier. I couldnt wait to use this new tool to improve my life. And now I own a business. Im a Virtual Assistant. What does all this tech talk mean for my business, my clients? It means I share the magic! It means there isnt software or hardware I wont work with. There isnt a How do I do this? that I wont strive to answer and then teach. I love what I do. I love solving tech riddles. I love finding easier, faster ways to accomplish a task. I love technology so you dont have to!
