I Am More
I'm a newBee, (thank you @MSweetwood for finding and following me on Twitter) and having read and enjoyed many articles already I thought it was about time to introduce myself and share my story, or its prelude as @Jim-Murray says.
But that poses its own problem, it would suggest a beginning, a middle and an end with one continuous theme. I am more than that. I am more than one business or job. I am Liz, Lizzie or Elizabeth, whichever you choose, but I am not just a job.
I like it here on BeBee, I feel I can be myself, all of myself, every season that I am.
Being a VA I am told that I need to niche down, but must we be in a niche? In a world where we can explore every variety and have so much choice why would we want to be the same as everyone else in our "niche"? I like variety and after all
isn't niche just a marketing tool?
I've worked for some great guys in the past but none of them have really fitted in a niche either. The main thing they've had in common has been a drive to do what they do in their own way. I can't say they thought "outside the box" because really I don't think they even knew the box existed. That is probably what has made them great to work for and interesting. Interesting and challenging. They challenged me and I got better. I found I could do more than I thought.
So this is some of me, I love yellow, have climbed Snowdon 3 times and slept on a beach overnight. I thought I wasn't the creative sort until I tried crochet and find that I am. I don't always understand things and may seem to contradict myself from time to time as I think things through.
I enjoy life and I enjoy working. When one enables the other, I'm happy.
There is more to come, more for me to share, more for me to learn and understand. One thing I do know is that I am not alone in being more than one thing. We are all more.
Liz, Lizzie, Elizabeth - you choose
Any likes and shares I really appreciate and I am especially grateful to those who are following me already.
