I just wanted to introduce you to someone who has been an absolute gem to me in the last bit. Her name is Sarah Hendrix and she has been helping me behind the scenes. She'll do a bit of research on something if I need it, or reach out to various vendors, or send me great links and things that you all might like. She has been a dream to work with.
She is looking for additional opportunities to be a virtual assistant. If anyone is looking for someone to help them, I can't recommend her enough.
Here is a note from Sarah:
Are you spending too much time doing administrative tasks when you’d rather be creating new content? Is your in-box overwhelming? Does your schedule feel out of control? Is social media taking up too much of your time? You need a virtual assistant!
I’d love to help in any of the following areas (& I'm open to other ideas):
- email & calendar (personal or editorial) management
- social media setup & management (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest)
- product development assistance (organizing a brainstorm!)
- content research (contact bloggers/companies for guest posts, product reviews, etc.)
- general research
- post preparation (editing, proofreading, formatting)
- event planning/online event management
Please contact me at sarahmhendrix (at) gmail.com if you are interested in working together or have any questions. I’d love to get to know you and your blog!
P.S. If you’re debating whether or not you could need help, please take a look at this post on Tips for Hiring a Virtual Assistant. You’ll be glad you did.
And just for fun...

And this is where Danny works:
Now, if you could hire someone to help you in your life, who would you hire??? I think of this all the time! :)
I would take a graphic designer to change my blog completely. A local assistant to help with errands and tasks. A tech support person. An editor to proofread my posts. An SEO expert - because making our posts SEO friendly might actually be helpful to some people out there. A film maker. A housekeeper to come once a week. And...someone else to manage all those people. ;) Ha. That would be heaven. And I'd definitely want Sarah on board.
My problem? I do this blog the old fashioned way and write all the posts myself. I am realizing that if I want to make any improvements to the blog - even the basics - I will need to step back from writing posts as much as I do. We'll see what I can work out.
P.S. Sarah Hendrix is going with me to Alt Summit in Salt Lake. I'm so excited to meet her for the first time.
