Whew, I ‘ve been gone awhile

Man, how time flies. I’ve been so focused on getting the new Administrative Consultants Association site done that I had to completely abandon the ol’ blog here (which will undergo its own metamorphosis soon as well). I have a zillion draft posts, too, that I could have been posting, but I just couldn’t spare the attention span needed to clean them up and get them posted. But you know, I just don’t sweat that kind of stuff.

I’m so excited about finally moving forward on the new direction. It’s been a long time coming. I actually started the site design last year, but got mentally blocked and had to put it on ice until I got some clarity again. And one I did, it started moving like gangbusters!

I’ve still got a few loose ends to take care so the site isn’t officially done, but do take a look and let me know whatcha think:  Administrative Consultants Association.

I also want to ask for your help. I’d like to spotlight a few stories from those of you who have embraced the new Administrative Consultant term and how it has helped you in your business.

For example, I recently received a note from a member who related how much easier it’s been for her in talking with potential clients and in networking situations since she began using the term Administrative Consultant. She said she doesn’t get any more of the eyes-glazing-over/deer-in-the-headlights thing that she would always get when she called herself a Virtual Assistant.

And I know of several people(myself included)  who have experienced a dramatic shift in how clients and business people at networking events treat them… getting rid of the word “assistant” from the equation makes all the difference in the world.

So if you have converted over or are still trying out the term Administrative Consultant, please email me your positive anecdotes and experience in using the term. My goal is to share these on our home page or a dedicated pate on the new site and will include your name and backlink to your site.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Hey Danielle. Sounds awesome. Yes, this year sure has flown. I am already preparing for my 2nd Chairpersonship and Movational Speaking gig next week, got a 90% rating on the last one so yeah, I agree with you that if you market yourself properly doors of opportunity open that you wouldn’t even of thought of. I will have to reconsider changing my business name slightly to get rid of the ‘assistants’ part, all in good time. So many irons in the fire at the moment making life look interesting and the future bright. Keep on doing what you doing because you are AWESOME! Lol as always, me xoxo

    I am just starting my virtual business and I think Admisitrative Consultant is far more accurate and professional in describing what we do.
