Nothing could have prepared me for my first day at virtual paperwork. My office is located in a quiet area of Cheshire, there is no sound apart from the birds singing in the trees.
I knew this day was going to be busy as I had spent most of the night advertising on social media and sending out campaigns to local businesses, but I wasn’t prepared for what came next.
I opened my office door, sat down and turned on my computer, hoping I would have at least one like on twitter or an email reply from one of the 200 emails I had sent out. Then there it was, that was the last time my desk would ever be white or even seen. Paper was everywhere, I had a not so clever idea to print out all of the replies and quieres I had had through the night. You could not see my desk from that moment forward.
Some of the businesses that I had reached out to had liked what I had to offer their business (after all I was clearing space on their desks to fill up mine) and wanted me to start right away. I panicked, I was not expecting one reply from my first campaign let alone several.
So that’s it my day began, I don’t remember much as I had spent my whole day trying to get all of the jobs done in little time, I wanted to impress, I didn’t want to fail, after all it was my first day.
I did it I really did it, it was hard but finally I could see my desk again. Until the computer went back on that is, I had sent the finished projects back to my clients and before morning new ones were back.
They must like seeing their desks clear because since that day I have never seen mine. I don’t mind now though as I see the mess in my office as success is someone else’s.
As time went by I knew I needed a team, these jobs were getting bigger and more demanding, so I created the virtual paperwork team. Now we can help more businesses free themselves from those tiering endless jobs.
I know only too well how hard it is to cope with paperwork overload on your own, and I am so happy that we can help people all over the UK stay one step ahead. (have clean desks)
