Do beginnings always feel so… weird? Or is it just me? 😀 LOL… I figure it really IS me… anyway…
WELCOME! Welcome to the beginning of my journey….. actually, it doesn’t really feel like the beginning… it seems as if I am already in it for quite some time now, but now the documentation starts… that makes it real… or at least that “forces” me to “deliver”! And to be completely honest – that’s the reason why I started this blog and why you are here now. ACCOUNTABILITY!
So what’s the story?
If you want a detailed version of why this blog exists you can check out my About me page. The short version is this:
My name is Monika, I am a Virtual Assistant and I just recently started my online business.
And I want you to experience the ups and downs with me.
I started this blog to show THE WORLD (or whoever is reading this 🤣), that nothing is always just rainbows and butterflies and unicorns. And one doesn’t have to be super brave, or super special to do brave things.
Why do I know that?
I know that because I am neither of these things. I am not super special and I am not super brave (yes I am super weird, and a bit crazy – all of this in a good way of course – most of the time at least 😉 , and it’s good that there is only ONE version of myself on this planet 😉 ). However, I was the first one that thought: I cannot just leave my job and try something on my own. I cannot risk it all, I have to be more creative than average, I have to be prettier than average, I have to be more confident than average, I have to sell better than average… But you know what: Comparisons suck! Big time! That doesn’t mean that I don’t compare anymore (hell no.. ask my friends… 🙈 … I would love to just switch that stuuuuupid habit off, but it’s hard work and I am on it… ). But I made a decision: I don’t want to be held back by that anymore. The world is a big place… I am a decent person, some people even love me (😱 WHAAT? Yes really! 🤣), my dog generally thinks I am perfect AND I already have people that really enjoy working with me because you know what: I DO A PRETTY GOOD JOB with the things I do! So if I can sell to two or three people already…. I can sell to maybe two or three or four more…. and then I can make what I am thriving for a reality.
So what do I want?
I don’t want to become rich by the end of this year (haha – not that it wouldn’t be nice 😉 ). But jokes aside: I want to have a business that I can live off, that gives me time and space to do the stuff I want to when I want to. And I want to have FUN in the process… because I like a good laugh, and I want to enjoy my life and I love geeking around. I need to get my ass off the ground though (some butt-kicking is always welcome 😉 ).
Then why this?
I want to share my journey with others like me: People that don’t quite know… people that are unsure, or insecure if they SHOULD try… I want to show them how life is treating me… how business is treating me AND I want to SHARE: Share the tools I find along the way, share what works for me and what doesn’t, share what I need and what I don’t need (or what I thought I needed but found out that it was total waste of time to even try).
So this is everything: A diary, a documentary, a library, a dog-praising-portal and sometimes a written stand-up-comedy! 🤓
So I am happy that you are here. I would love to here insights from you. Share how life is treating you. And leave some comments if you like. Or lurk a little (oh I know that is LOVELY… did that for a looooong time!).
