Time out is so important
I spent the last few days in the beautiful Hunter Valley with some gorgeous friends drinking wine, eating cheese, playing board games and taking time away from the office. I confess this is something I really struggle with, I am a people pleaser and I like to get things done but I neglect the most important thing…Me!
I admit I checked my phone when I had reception (and I did this often) but I made a conscious effort to be present and enjoy the moment.
- Phone went to silent mode
- I didn’t check messages via social media (that almost felt like my left arm was cut off)
- I did feel nervous
- I did feel out of control
- I did feel like ducking to the toilet 100 times to check my messages but I didn’t
I stayed at the beautiful Carriages Boutique Hotel & Vineyard which was stunning. The country verandah and beautifully manicured gardens where picture perfect. The rooms were a little noisy but the beauty wasn’t lost.
I was picked up by the outgoing, sociable Jules from Two Fat Blokes and what a day we had. My two favourite stops would be the Deli at the Two Fat Blokes…..the cheese and wine were perfectly matched (I’m no expert but I know when things are good and this was seriously good) and my other favourite stop was the beautiful little winery called Ivanhoe (the view and wine both as delicious on the eye and the palate).
At the end of the day I actually felt great…I survived and more importantly my clients survived. I do have a small confession though!
I got up at 5am to come home and work!
Jodie has been so amazing the last few days!
I was in quite the pickle earlier in the week and Jodie put her hand up to help me.
With a fiddly, tedious job (in my opinion) that took me 5 hours to not even get close to finishing, Jodie was able to breeze through it in no time at all. And apparently enjoyed it!
Her communication with me was consistent throughout the whole process and she is an absolute delight to work along side.
I am excited to have stumbled upon Virtually Organised when I did, my business is in the growth stage and fast becoming too busy for me to do everything myself. It will be an absolute honour to continue working with Jodie & Virtually Organised in 2016 and beyond. Taryn & Co.
Jodie is a star... and a fabulous person to boot!
Working with Jodie on my recent website update has been hassle-free and fun! Jodie got the job done in record time (after I had unfortunately been hacked), and the website was exactly what I was looking for!
Jodie is a saving grace!
She recently took me from a state of fear and panic to one of confidence and comfort. I now don't have to worry about losing any of my valuable photos and information as she has me flying high in the cloud. Jodie....your delivery is so polished and experienced...and so easy to understand....thank you! Kirsten Howton
