Meet Kim

Written by , Posted in Life

12813917_10153454710901475_7438798912823403125_nA few weeks ago, I shared in my weekly blog post that I don’t run my business by myself anymore. In fact, I’ve been building my team behind-the-scenes for some time now.

My newest team member, Kim, has helped me make some big changes and updates to this site, and I am so grateful for her help! And now it’s time for me to introduce you to her because she will be joining me to share some of her stories on the blog.

Kim is married with a young daughter, and I know she’ll add provide a great perspective and voice to the site that’s been missing since Kristi left last year.

Kim is a Texan native who has lived in Kansas City, MO with her husband and daughter for almost five years. While she loves being at the beach and traveling, she spends her days as a full-time virtual assistant and mother. Juggling entrepreneurship and motherhood isn’t always easy, but she’d take that over a desk job any day.

Here are a few fun facts about Kim.

Money Fail: I Forgot to Cancel an Automatic Subscription

Written by , Posted in Life, Money & Finances

Failure isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes making a mistake can be a blessing in disguise, as it is with this money fail.A few days ago, I logged into my online banking to check my balance. I login every day to account for my transactions and categorize them so my budget reports aren’t such a bear to put together at the end of every month.

Most of the time there aren’t any surprises in my account. I have a pretty good idea of what’s going in and coming out on a day-to-day basis. But last week there was a transaction I didn’t recognize for $15.76.

While that’s not a lot of money in the grand scheme of things, I just couldn’t figure out what it was for and it was bugging me. Then I saw an email from EHarmony.

You see, back in January 2016 I decided I was ready to start dating again. Since there are very few prospects (AKA none) in my rural area of Kansas, I signed up for online dating. EHarmony was having a sale, so I pre-paid for several months to get the sale pricing. Unfortunately, I didn’t notice that my account was set up on an automatic subscription.

Oops!

Protecting Your Pet from Unreasonable Landlords

Written by , Posted in Life

petsA loving pet owner may face difficulties in renting an affordable apartment because of a strict no-pet obligation from the owner. However hard you may try to convince the importance of your pet in your family, often people just do not want to see reason. In such circumstances, you would need something more than mere logical skills to suffice legal protection for the pet. The law recognizes the validity of therapeutic companionship provided by animals. All you need to do is obtain an ESA certificate. Certifying your dog or cat as an emotional support animal effectively obliges the insensitive landlord to accept the animal in his premises. Follow the simple procedure of applying for the license from an authorized online service.
