I studied for 3½ years to become a secretary / Personal Assistant from 1992 – 1994 – full time and then part time to complete my N6 and the ultimate was a National Secretarial Diploma which I’ve received in 2000. My first permanent position was with National Department of Public Works in 1998 and since then I’ve been working for our Provincial Government on and off. Since I got married, I realised that I want to do my own thing – start my own business. I remembered there was an interview with a woman on RSG once and I did my research about Virtual Assistance. My baby daughter will have her mother with her all the time. All in all I have about 16 years experienced in the secretarial field. For a short while I did transcriptions as well for Line I transcriptions which involve typing of different phone messages and reports coming from the USA through the Internet. I had to cope with the time difference and received the contact in South Africa. I was a senior agent. While doing my research, I met Francis van Wyk who assisted me by giving me the finer points on how to do my marketing for my business. She is a Virtual Assistant mentor who assist solo woman entrepreneurs like me. I believe in service delivery and a professionally typed product as I had a lecturer at Stellenbosch College that drilled the fact into you, that all typed documents will be going out to clients and that errors are a no-no. It will be my pleasure to assist clients making sure the final product is professionally done. It is a commitment from my side, and I also want the working relationship to last for a long time. For the first time in my working life, I am excited about my job as I enjoy typing different types of documents. I have integrity – my yes is my yes and my no is my no.
