I find it very fitting that I decided to get my act together and start blogging the week of Professional Administrative Day. To tell you how long I have been at it (admin work that is), we used to call it Secretary’s Day, but that is a bit outdated in today’s working world and hasn’t been called that since 2000. I have been meaning to start up this blog for about a year now, but that’s not to say that I have been slacking by any means. I’ve been busy assisting in the creation and launch of the very first Doctor of Audiology program in the State of Oregon, co-founded an internet start-up & applied to a few business incubators (did not get into any, but it was a great experience!), and went back to school to finish my bachelor degree. In the back of my mind I wanted to work on my personal branding, which if you haven’t figure out yet, I’m Office Maven! And along with that, start blogging about my office management, business development, small business marketing, and technology experiences. I’ve done a lot and seen a lot over the past 18 years and hope that you will find my postings useful; perhaps starting dialogs that will help us learn from each other.
Thank you in advance for stopping by and reading my new posts! Please spread the word to those who manage offices, assistant executives/managers or small business owners who you feel might benefit from my words of wisdom. My goal is to have monthly postings, but there might be more than one if appropriate topics arise.
Spring showers will bring Office Maven to the blogosphere!
Not only is Office Maven ramping up to blog about all sorts of office related topics, but a new event planning blog will also be launching this Spring!
Looking forward to sharing my experiences with everyone and helping you manage your offices and small businesses!
Julie, Office Maven
