When I signed up for Twitter four years ago, I had no idea how much it would help me to expand my network. I’ve received referrals and inquiries, books and products to review, guest blogging opportunities, and connections to people I now consider friends, even though we’ve never met in person. One of those people is Linda Samuels, author of The Other Side of Organized.
Linda is a regular participant in the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival, and was kind enough to write a guest post for me about how she fulfilled her dream of writing a book, so when she invited me to take part in her ”Ask the Expert” series, I didn’t hesitate for a moment. If you’ve ever considered enlisting help, whether from a virtual assistant such as myself, or in any area of your life, I hope my answers to Linda’s questions will enlighten you and perhaps even encourage you to take that next step.
You may not realize that the topic for August’s Professional Organizers Blog Carnival was Top Ten Lists. Linda’s submission was titled 10 Best Sources for Organizing Help, and much to my surprise and delight, not only did she include the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival on her list, she cleverly used that opportunity to announce my upcoming appearance on her blog.
Linda and I are very different kinds of people: my personality type is ISTJ while hers is ENFJ, yet despite that, or perhaps because of it, we get along nicely and learn much from each other. Our relationship reminds me of that old song:
We belong to a Mutual Admiration Society.
Is there someone in your life who inspires and supports you? I’d love to hear about it!
