Default Re: 2/2009 Interview with Lanel Taylor of Taylored Office Solutions
I met Lanel on the forums here and have since met her in person at a VA lunch since she lives somewhat close to me and she has helped me tremendously! She's always sending me e-mails with ideas on how I can help grow my new VA business. She joked that she was probably annoying me, but she has really inspired and helped me! She's very supportive and giving and she is just an awesome person!

Thanks Lanel! You're the best!

Thanks, everyone. I really enjoyed the interview with Mary and really hope you can get something out of what I said. If you have any other questions please be sure to let me know.

I can't tell you how helpful that saying is for me in my business. It's true, though, we all have a choice. And, this is mine.

Thanks Lanel. You are encouraging to those of us who are just starting out. Also, thank you for telling it like it is..."Don't think this is easy." I don't know about anyone else, but I definitely need a reality check when I am excited about a new endeavor. Thanks again.
