We’re nearly through the year now, and chances are you’re feeling a little jaded.  The regular mini-breaks you promised to take this year seem a distant memory and ….. you’re back in the same place you threatened you would leave.

September 18, 2017 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

Nothing zaps your energy faster than pain – and I’ve been in a load of pain this week. I hurt my neck and now I’m noticing how heavy my head is. This is a similar problem that I have written about before sometimes under the guise of the poor ergonomics that go with laptop use, […]

When I tell people about the work I do as a VA (Virtual Assistant) and training VAs in Australia, I quite often see their eyes glaze over as they try very hard to look as if they comprehend what it is I am actually talking about.  My very next question will always be, “Do you […]
