Making Effective Use of Your Commute

Posted on March 20, 2013 by Justine Curtis - My Virtual Assistant

Do you find that when you have a little ‘head space’ whilst driving or traveling on trains or planes you suddenly feel inspired? The idea for that article suddenly pops into your head or you feel stimulated enough to put together that email newsletter you’ve been meaning to send out?

Well there’s not much you can do to put pen to paper while you are driving or crammed into the 07:45 to Waterloo, so what can you do?

Most mobile phones these days have a recording facility so why not record what you want to say, just as you would have done years ago into a Dictaphone. You won’t even feel like an idiot chatting away to yourself as people will just assume you are on a call on your mobile telephone.

You can then send the recorded file to your virtual assistant who can transcribe it into your article, newsletter or even your next training course or ebook. Imagine how much you could achieve on your next journey.

For more information about our services and how we can help you, don’t waste any more time, contact My Virtual Assistant today.
