**What first attracted you to Zirtual?**I read a Daily Beast article and a few others about Zirtual, and it all just clicked for me. I have a daughter and spending time with her is valuable to me, so the work-life balance culture is extraordinary. Being a ZA offers a tremendous amount of flexibility, and it allows me to be challenged on a day to day basis which is something I truly appreciate.
**What’s the most unique task you’ve gotten?**For halloween this year I had to find über realistic KISS costumes for a client and his crew. When they hit the streets, after hair and makeup, they rocked the house.
What do you do to relax? When I need to relax I work in my garden. It’s a nice way to unplug, get some exercise, and I feel like I’m growing cash.
What do you love most about being a ZA? I feel like although I work virtually, I have a close relationship with my clients and coworkers. I’ve had most of my clients for more than a year, and a few of them for two years. They know and understand what I can do for them, and we work together smoothly. I love Zirtual because it encourages us to be problem solvers and find creative solutions for our clients. Never say no. I like fighting through a problem. I’m a puzzle solver.
What New Year’s resolution has you most excited? This year I’ve started tracking my time with a chronodex (here’s a pic of what it looks like). It’s a cool way to visualize my time. If you want to give it a try you can download a template to get started.
BONUS FUN: If you could have a superpower what would you pick? Why? I would give up sleep. Really that would be the coolest superpower. No more sleep. I’d read all the time.
