Why Outsource to a Virtual Assistant?
Using a virtual assistant can shave hours from your workweek, but knowing which tasks to delegate can be tricky, whether you’re starting or growing a business.

Unique Individual Gifts
I just recently read that nobody else has the same experiences, opinions, perspectives as I do. Very novel – I’ve never thought of myself as anything exceptional, but ordinary. Now I realize I have skills, senses, and beliefs that others may just find attractive. I try not to point my finger at others, or judge others or really even make an opinion of another individual until I’ve gotten more familiar with who they really are. “Don’t judge a book by its cover” so to speak. To a fault almost, I trust too many.
Every experience in life presents options. Options provide opportunities. Opportunities create challenges, then we evaluate our choices. Take on each challenge and learn from it, don’t ever walk away thinking it didn’t matter.

A Clever Cartoon That Accurately Captures the Drastic Differences Between the Generations
Strategic planning is an organization’s process of defining its strategy, or direction, and making decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy. It may also extend to control mechanisms for guiding the implementation of the strategy. Strategic planning became prominent in corporations during the 1960s and remains an important aspect of strategic management. It is executed by strategic planners or strategists, who involve many parties and research sources in their analysis of the organization and its relationship to the environment in which it competes. Strategy has many definitions, but generally involves setting goals, determining actions to achieve the goals, and mobilizing resources to execute the actions. A strategy describes how the ends (goals) will be achieved by the means (resources). The senior leadership of an organization is generally tasked with determining strategy. Strategy can be planned (intended) or can be observed as a pattern of activity (emergent) as the organization adapts to its environment or competes. Strategy includes processes of formulation and implementation; strategic planning helps coordinate both. However, strategic planning is analytical in nature (i.e., it involves “finding the dots”); strategy formation itself involves synthesis (i.e., “connecting the dots”) via strategic thinking. As such, strategic planning occurs around the strategy formation activity.
Strategic planning broken down:
- Define direction (setting goals)
- Decision making (determining actions to achieve the goals)
- Identify and allocate resources
- Execute (mobilizing resources)
