Why I am building an Executive Assistant Community

Posted by Helen on Mar 18, 2018 10:34:36 PM

Each year, I make a host of New Year’s resolutions. Each year, I swear I will stick to them. Each year, most have folded by Easter. 

That’s why, this year, I decided not to make a short-lived resolution, but instead give myself a mission for the whole year. Something I felt passionate about. Something I could grow with each passing month.

Posted by Archie on Jan 4, 2018 12:35:14 PM

Holidays should be spent with the ones you love, not Microsoft Office. Feet up on the sofa, not crouched below a desk. Yet, for many executives, holiday periods, such as Christmas, can be frantic.
