Jamaica is 53

Jamaica 53


The theme for Jamaica's independence 2015 is "Proud and Free - Jamaica 53". We are a proud people indeed. This little island is known for its amazing culture, people, food, music and sites. Jamaicans are people who defy boundaries to attain great heights. Jamaicans are known to create paths and trails where others wouldn't dare to trod. Jamaicans are talented, warm and passionate and this year, together as a people we celebrate 53 years of independence.


Proud we are, especially when one consider our history but are we truly free? Honestly, I am still considering that point. Nonetheless, we have so many achievements and people who have taken Jamaica global. Still there is so much more to be done. When we consider 53 years - are we where we could have, should have been. Jamaica is a land of beauty from its beaches to the lush mountain side. We are truly a blessed people but as we celebrate this year, let us ponder the words of our national song:


"Jamaica land of beauty, we promise faithfully
to serve thee with our triumphs and bring our gifts to thee
Jamaica we will always, in honor of thy name
work steadfastly and wisely, and never bring thee shame.
From river side to mountain, from cane fields to the sea
Our hearts salute Jamaica, triumphant proud and free."


Let us empower those around us to free themselves from the bondage of sin and immorality. Let us turn to God and pray that the Jamaica land we love will grow stronger as our people come together in unity and uphold the standards that make us as unique as we are. With God as our guide - dare to dream, dare to be and dare to achieve. Happy Independence Jamaica!

What Is This Virtual Assistance I Keep Hearing About?

Ok. So I happened to be checking on my LinkedIn profile and came across this article that explains the term "Virtual Assistant" and what we do.  
It sounds cliché, but as an online business owner, there really is never enough time in the day to get everything done that you need in order for your business to succeed and expand.
Sooner or later you reach a point in your business where you cannot do it all.
In order to expand and survive in an online world, you need a team. Not just any team, a team of professionals that have a sincere interest in your success. Someone that shares the same drive and motivation you have as a business owner.
Virtual Assistance is taking the world by storm. It is the fastest growing legitimate stay at home business on the planet today!
Imagine what you could do with just 1 extra hour a day let alone multiple hours in the day? By delegating your daily time-consuming tasks to a reliable Virtual Assistant (VA), you will gain back valuable time that you can now spend more productively networking and expanding your business, and ultimately your bottom line as well. Not to mention freeing up your time for family and friends that don't get to see and experience you as much as they would like to.
Are you ready to begin delegating?    Because it's exhausting being a team of one!
Teamwork
A VA can pretty much do any job you need them to. Some VAs only do general administrative tasks, while other VAs specialize in technology. These are the VAs that have taken the time to invest in their business by educating themselves with the different technical software programs that are used on a daily basis. It is possible to find a VA that can take on any given aspect of your business that you don't have time for, don't feel qualified to handle or just don't like to do.
Virtual Assistants are entrepreneurs, sub-contractors, and business owners, they are not necessarily employees. There are no employee-related expenses, and you end up paying only for the work you need to be done. There is no downtime. VAs are cost-effective and typically work remotely from their own home or office so there is no need for you to find a space for them to work.
VAs are knowledgeable and proficient in many areas that you & your staff may not be. They are able to streamline processes and make your business run more efficiently.
