What I love most about being a professional Office Assistant is the never ending stream of different assignments. It's the diversity in handling and solving new challenges for my Clients and watching them take over and run their business with pride and proficiency that I enjoy the most.
Especially here in the New Orleans area, many, many small business owners have had to start over. They have lost vital business records. I have they pleasure of assisting them get back on their feet in an organized way.
Sometimes I charge less than I should, but that's the joy of owning your own business, too. When you can cut someone a deal...just to help them out with your knowledge and experience...it's a gratifying, heart warming thing to do.
I know this "business assistant" topic thread is old. I hope someone reads this and picks the topic back up.
Being an office assistant full time and accepting the different challenges can be difficult for some more than others.
We should stick together and try to help each other out with suggestions and tips. Please feel free to write back with any questions or concerns you may have. If for nothing else than the fact that it might help someone out along the way.
