Now that I've decided on a name for my personal assistant business, The Errand Fairy, I've been super busy trying to pull things together. Tina at Fat Girl Dives In is going to design my website, so I've been creating content in a word document for her. Lots of editing and fussing and trying to get it just so. I'd rather it be more personable than cold-sounding or ultra professional. I want it to reflect who I truly am.
Dwayne and I went to Office Depot last night and he bought me a planner/appointment book, a receipt book, and a mileage book to get me started. So sweet!! Today on my lunch break, I ran to the bank and set up another checking account as well as another savings account, aside from the ones I already have. I want to keep this side business separated from my current paycheck/bill paying activities, etc. for now. Next on my list to do this afternoon is to sign up for Google Check Out and PayPal as a means of taking VISA/MC as one of my payment methods. I don't understand how either of these work, so I've got to jump in, do some reading, figure it out, and get them set up. Just trying to get started is a lot of work!! But I'm so looking forward to this new venture for 2011. It feels positive...it feels good....it feels right. :)
My friends Kim and Crys have already vowed to hire me when I get up and running and I'm so thankful for that!! Having 2 clients before you even get your website up is encouraging, and I thank them for believing in me and wanting to help me get my business off the ground. If I've got any fellow Atlanta bloggers reading...call me!! lol
Hope everyone is doing well with easing into the new year. Personally, I've taken off like a shot! And I haven't forgotten that this is a weight loss blog, first and foremost. I'll get to Walmart this wknd to buy those scale batteries, pay the piper, and get that show back on the road, so you'll be hearing more about that soon.
Before I go, I want to share something with you that made me laugh out loud last night. I've got a blog friend named Matt, at Lots to Lose, listed on my blogroll. He commented last night on my post about naming my business The Errand Fairy. He said as soon as he read that in my post, his daughter came in and tried to sweet talk him into going to the store to pick up some junk food for her, and he turned to her and said, "I ain't your ERRAND FAIRY!!!" lmao .....LOVE IT!! Thanks for all of your support Matt, and to everyone else who has been wishing me well on my new endeavor. Have a fabulous day friends. :)
