Welcome to my blog.
I decided to start blogging because I am full of opinions and I am also starting a new Virtual Assistant business called SmallBiz-Assist. My blog will be a mix of random thoughts, opinions, reviews and occasionally some business stuff. I hope if you come across this blog you subscribe and check out my thoughts.
A little bit about me:
I am a small business owner or General Manager for most of my life. After college, I worked in a small firm that helped small businesses launch. I took my experience to the family business and worked as a GM for years, until 9-11 devastated the inbound tourism economy in NYC, so we decided it was time for Dad to retire and for me to move on. I moved to western PA from NYC and started a marble & granite fabrication shop. We expanded into flooring and tile and eventually became a one stop shop for your remodeling needs. I closed this business in 2023 after battling the good employee crisis. I built a reputation of being customer service centric and attentive to details but it became more and more difficult to find employees with work ethic and willing to service my customers to the standards I set. I decided it was a good time to close and not become reliant on employees.
My new enterprise is the SmallBiz-Assistant
I launched the Small Biz Assistant to provide small business owners with a solution for finding more hours in a day. I believe I can be an asset to any business that needs a little help with a project or a reliable, competent professional for a remote position in their business.
I am signing off for now.
