JC was a very good boy again. My balance is getting better. We worked hard today. He actually broke a sweat.
After I got home, the girl that used to stay with my mother came over. My son had gone to her house to help her shovel. Her brother beat her pretty bad and is now in jail. We started talking about the meeting with my office manager and the fact that my office manager stated that I was at the point that I needed an assistant. When I told her this, she offered to work for me for $20 per day (cash of course).
At first, I kind of blew it off and then I realized how important this could be for my business. There are so many things I should be doing that I just don't have time to do. But, she could do it. We ended up talking for over 3 hours of things that I need done from setting up a Twitter account for my business to updating my facebook business page to setting up a new blogspot for my real estate business. I also need a spreadsheet of who closed when so cards can be sent.
There is actually a ton of stuff I need done that would actually help my business. I talked to my husband about it and he agreed. He even said that we should give her enough to start that she can get her cell phone turned on. It is $50, but in the scheme of things, if it means she will work that much harder, it is worth it and it will let me contact her whenever I need to.
I think this will be a huge boost for my business and not cost me an arm and a leg. I know how much most assistants get. I told her that if she can help me earn more money, she is helping herself earn more money. I am really excited that I am at a point that I can actually afford to and need to do this :)
