HR Manager made redundant whilst on maternity leave!
Yup, that’s what happened to me in 2013 when my second child was 5 months old.
The company I worked for had been bought out by a competitor the year before, so it was only a matter of time before this happened. So even though I was expecting it, it still left me feeling totally useless and unwanted.
But, every cloud, as they say because this is how I became a Virtual Assistant! I am a really hard worker and I’m very loyal. I couldn’t bare the thought of working so hard for anyone again, knowing that I would have no control over my future employment. I decided invest my strengths and qualities back into myself and be in control of my own destiny.
How did you get into your business?
