It's 6.39pm and I went outside to see what the bright glow was coming through my office window. There had been news reports earlier in the day not to panic, that burning off is happening in the hills to help protect areas around Melbourne from the bush fires but that Melbourne would be shrouded by smoke.
It's really eery out there. I've taken some photos to give you an idea of the contrast of colour from the orange cloud and sun shining on the garden at a time when the sun is getting low.
Founder of the Virtual Assistant industry in Australia, I manage a VA Network which has 200+ VAs in 7 countries and I personally have been in business over 19 years. VAs provide all sorts of computer and web based support from basic word-processing and data entry right through to social media management, blog support, ezines, online databases, etc. If you're a business owner who finds they just can't get it all done each day, perhaps it's time to get your own Virtual Assistant to assist you in the running of your business.
I'm also a keen photographer and have been seriously improving my skills over the past couple of years. I own a Nikon D90 and D60 and several lenses and concentrate on landscapes, nature and travel photography mainly.
Add to that I'm a wife, mother, (published) author, singer and love my family and my friends.
I've won many awards for my Virtual Assistant business, have twice been nominated for "Australian of the Year" and am listed in Australia's Who's Who of Women.
