My guest today is Veronica Huerta. We met on Twitter and haven’t met face-to-face but I think she’s just grand. Veronica is an Author Personal Assistant. Check her out!
1. What made you want to be a Personal Assistant to an author?
It started out a as joke. One author I am friends with on twitter, jokingly tweeted she wish she had help assisting her. I tweeted back saying I would love to help her out. I did not really think she would take me up on it but she later sent me a message hoping I would help. Of course I said yes. I mean what a great way to make a little side money while working from home. I am really fortunate because now I am working with four amazing authors.
