The Ride of Our Lives - For Good

By Lance Jensen On April 21st 2019, Jo and I rode into the 'The New Life Project' home in Kanchanaburi and met the kids we fundraised for...  and the best way I can sum up the whole experience is 'Life Changing'! Jo and I were part of a group of 65 riders that had spent the last 5 days biking 500km across Thailand in 42-46 degree heat -- it had been seriously challenging -- and it was all instantly forgotten the moment we saw the children's faces ♡♡♡ My little guy (Ice) barely said a...

6 Little Tweaks That'll Transform How You Use A Virtual Assistant

I don’t know about you, but my ears instantly prick up when I hear about small changes leading to big rewards.  No, not because I am sceptical, but because I’m interested. Most of us are time poor and looking for ways to maximise the time we do have, so if you can make efficiency improvements with little to no financial investment, it would be silly not to!  After spending some time thinking about the small tweaks we have implemented at Strictly Savvy to deliver quality VA support ...

Forget Using A Virtual Assistant: Do This Instead

When people are considering outsourcing tasks to a Virtual Assistant, we often advise them to make a list of the jobs they do each day, week, month and so on. By writing everything down and seeing all their tasks laid out, they can start to build up a good picture of where they are spending the most time, and which things make the most sense to hand over to a VA. If you undertake this important exercise, you’ll find you come up with a long list of things that make you think: 'Yep, those c...
