"While your résumé looks great, we're going to move forward with a different candidate. We wish you the best of luck in your job search!"

These are words I'm sure we've all had land in our email inbox while searching for jobs, especially since the pandemic. It's something that has always stuck with me. As someone who suffers with anxiety, it takes me a while to brush that off at times. These scripted emails soon make a pile that is hard to look around when trying to find the positivity in the situation.

This is something I've had to deal with quite often in my search for what makes me feel passionate about the work I'm doing day in and day out. I knew as I was working mindlessly at my desk while chained to that desk for 8+ hours per day that I had to walk away from the desk jobs that depended on high speed internet. I had seen virtual assistant positions advertised on Facebook quite often but hadn't put much thought into them.

I knew I had to find something that didn't cause me so much anxiety each day when posed with the idea of telling a caller something they don't want to hear in my call center job. I had been at this particular position for far too long and I knew it. I had enough of being yelled at by people who hadn't heard from their attorneys in some time, however long that time period had been.

I knew I had to get away from that job and knew as well that I had to turn away from customer service once and for all. I had been raised in customer service positions after getting my start at my parents' business. I knew being a virtual assistant was the way to go after looking at everything I could do and the freedom it gives me. I knew I needed to combine the two things I enjoy doing: writing and being an administrative assistant.

Knowing that answering phone calls all day would be out of the question, I decided to build a business on doing what I love while also offering services my clients would need from a virtual assistant. I knew I couldn't hide behind a computer screen forever, even if I love working behind the scenes from the other side of a laptop screen. (Ha!) I knew I needed to add my love of the behind the scenes work and adding great customer service when speaking with my clients.
