Today’s post is a little out of the norm for me, in that it’s a post written entirely by me, rather than the typical article, resource or information you usually find here at Virtually This and That! Writing is not something that comes easily to me, so I don’t do it that often. I figure there is so much valuable information out there that will benefit my intended readers that it makes sense to pull from the experts that really know what they are talking about, and to whom writing does come easily, but Sunday is a very special day for me. In fact, I consider it a rather big milestone for my business.
October 1, 2006, marks the 15th anniversary of Fastype, now known as Fastype VA Services, Inc. Earlier today; I posted on a very popular forum for Virtual Assistants. We were talking about the things some of us were going to celebrate while attending our VA Conference in Dallas in about two weeks, and I mentioned that I would be celebrating my 15th year in business. A little later in the day, I received a private message from one of the members, who congratulated me and then asked me the following question…
She said, “What the heck were you doing 15 years ago? I mean, I know I had my first computer then, but…I was on CompuServe and email was brand spanking new and we were all on UNIX with 5500-baud modems. Well, I was.
So…how did you do business 15 years ago?”
