In a world where job satisfaction is paramount, I've always advocated for not settling for a job that doesn't bring joy. Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of experiencing a myriad of roles, each contributing to my growth and knowledge.

My Employment Background: Developing Administrative Skills

My journey began at 13, working in my grandparents' bakery, where I learned invaluable communication and mathematical skills. Moving on to a prestigious hotel at 16, I immersed myself in various departments, refining my analytical, organisational and administrative skills.

Transitioning to telesales, I thrived in a high-pressure environment, mastering time management and target-driven work. Subsequently, I managed reservations at hotels, balancing multiple responsibilities with ease.

Venturing into new territories, I worked in a nightclub, enhancing my mathematical prowess, and later embraced the challenge of a manual reception at a smaller hotel. Spearheading the transition to a computerised system, I revolutionised operations and efficiency.

A stint in a local taxi office exposed me to unfamiliar territory, yet I excelled in dispatch operations, driven by camaraderie and challenge. Subsequent roles ranged from opticians to administration, each contributing to my skill set and personal growth.

Embracing holistic therapies and IT administration, I continued to evolve professionally culminating in the establishment of my own clinical hypnotherapy practice. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, I found solace in pursuing new opportunities.

Amid uncertainty, the idea of becoming a Virtual Assistant emerged. Leveraging my diverse administrative skills and equipped with the necessary tools, I embarked on this new chapter with enthusiasm, grateful for the opportunity to love my work once again.

While some may thrive in long-term roles, my journey through diverse career paths has been enriching. Each experience has shaped me, fostering growth, and lifelong connections. As I look ahead, I'm filled with optimism, embracing the unknown with excitement.
