Are You Busy? – EPVLA Reflections #17

As an executive, personal or virtual assistant, EPVA for short,  I am often asked, “Are you busy?” Many times I take a long pause because the truth is, I’m always busy! As assistants for executives, celebrities, producers, directors, athletes, politicians, or other high-profile professionals the reality is that each day you are called upon to handle multiple tasks and depending on the industry you work in or the person you work for, those tasks could be the impossible climb Mount Jireh tasks, and by the way, Mount Jireh is a mountain that does not exist on this planet, but fortunately for EPVA’s, the Creator and his Universe always provides!

Health + Wellness

Your responsibilities as the “gatekeeper” is to take care of the boss, but you have to also remember to take care of yourself. Part of being the “Greatest executive, personal and/or virtual assistant,”  is making sure that you put your ‘health and wellness’ first. If you are physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially exhausted then you will not be able to provide the best possible assistance to your employer or clients.
