How to Handle Work Guilt

Jen Lawrence

However, due to the climbing cost of living, we have more people in the workforce who are working longer hours to make ends meet, which is resulting in less time at home with our loved ones. And if you’re going to make the argument that the job pays too well to leave, I pose a different perspective – what is it costing you? It could be anything such as Donut Day, getting over the hurdle of a project, learning a new skill, or even just that you have a job.

Meeting or Memo?

Virtual Moxie

One of the best things I think a VA can learn is to respect the limits of a client’s resources—of all types. One way to fix that… as you look at the agenda you create for the next call, ask yourself, “Is this a meeting, or a memo?” Take it off the agenda, and write to your client about it, instead.
