Some BIG News To Share

baby BullYep, your eyes are not deceiving you… that’s Baby Bull sucking its thumb!

Stephanie and I are thrilled to announce that we are expecting at the beginning of November.

Needless to say, life has gotten a little bit crazy real quick in the Bull household… but crazy in the most amazing way possible.  It’s truly unique to feel thrilled with a dash of being terrified thrown in when one is expecting their first child.

In case you noticed, the amount of blogging that we’ve been doing on our site has been down a bit… some of that is due to being crazed with getting ready for Baby Bull and summer trips, some due to spending more time working with our members inside our training program and some due to re-thinking what exactly we want the blog portion of our site to be.

Rest assured though that we are going to keep blogging and putting out free content in addition to the paid executive and admin training program that we offer so don’t be strangers.

So that’s the big news… the Bull clam is growing by 1 and Sadie is going to be a big sister… we know she’ll be a great one!

Off Topic (kinda): An assistant in the making

The below video is from The Bonnie Hunt show and is a segment about a little girl helping her father out in a touch situation… she’s so calm, cool and collected, I know she’d make a great assistant! Very touching and a must watch:

Happy (belated) New Year!

fireworksHappy (belated) New Year!

Here’s to wishing you and yours a successful 2010 to kick off the new decade. ProAssisting came into being last year and this year our goal is to expand upon the great successes we’ve had so far…

Just to re-cap, in addition to becoming a featured writer for Monster’s AdminSecret, we had a very robust beta testing period thanks to their community of assistants who put our training through its paces. Then, we opened our doors and right out of the gate formed a 1-for-1 partnership with the prestigious and world wide philanthropy Dress for Success. All-in-all, a great start to our fledgling company!

Welcome to VegasTo get some rest and relazation before the start of 2010, Steph and I headed to Las Vegas. Stephanie has never been to Vegas so we decided to leave NYC behind for a New Year’s Eve out on the strip. What a great trip we had… and yes, if you can believe it, we left winners!

Sadie wasn’t too happy with us for being left behind but she had a great time staying at our dog walker’s home and playing with his 1 year old puppy so all was not lost… I think she’s just getting over being mad at us:) I’m sure Steph will post some more pics of her soon.

As for 2010 and ProAssisting, we’ve got some great free content coming your way via our blog, we’re working on our free “Assistant Tool Kit” which will give you some of the information and tactics we teach on the inside of our training straight to your inbox via email and we’re going to continue to work with Dress for Success by helping their clients achieve greater success through our training. Should be an exciting time so stick around and check back often to see what we’re cookin’ up to help assistants of every variety!

What Matters Now!

This post doesn’t have anything to do with assisting per se but it has everything to do with living life, making a difference and finding your path… and the more I think about it, the more I believe that we created ProAssisting to help people find their path by teaching our enrollees (and our blog readers) the “tricks of trade” and the “ins and outs” of the working world so they (and you) can progress on their (and your) career path that much faster.

Huge props to Seth Godin for putting this together and for giving it away freely… if you want to get a little bit of Seth in your inbox every day, go and sign up here.

Off Topic: Halloween in NYC!

Trying to get Ethan to dress up for Halloween is NEVER an easy task but when I suggested that we go a Mr. & Mrs. Don Draper from Mad Men (one of our favorite shows BTW), he was up for it! Below is a pic of us taken in the lobby of our building before we headed out and the rest are some snaps that I took as we watched the World Series in a bar at the corner of Allen and Stanton in Manhattan… we had a blast!

Off Topic: Sadie Bull

Bernese Mountain Dog Sadie BullHi everyone, Steph here… Ethan has the day off today!

I know I haven’t been contributing to our blog here as much as Ethan and to be honest, I’ve been slammed at work; you know, my real job—working as an executive/personal assistant for a top hedge fund executive—and I just don’t feel like blogging about assisting or the tools and techniques of assisting since I’m neck deep in it all day, every day.

So that brings us to why I’m posting today… instead of contributing to this blog from an assistant perspective (I might still every now and then but mostly not), I’m going to be sharing bits and pieces about what Ethan, Sadie and I are doing when we’re not working (either at our “day jobs” or for ProAssisting). You see, this little company of ours is just that, the three of us (Sadie provides the moral support) trying to help current or future assistants shine in their jobs and get the career they want and deserve but since we’re just a “Mom and Pop” shop, we do have another story to tell too… about our dog, our trips and anything else that we think you might like to hear about.

And that’s where my blogging comes in… I’m going to be sharing pics, stories and maybe some video—mostly of Sadie—that give you a peek into who we are behind ProAssisting. Ethan has added a new category, which you can find down at the bottom of our blog, called “Off Topic” where my little tidbits about us will be shared.

That brings us to the pic of Sadie in this post… it was taken last night. I was getting a bone out for her and Ethan snapped the shot… she’s ready and waiting with great anticipation, as you can tell, and I thought you might get a kick out of it.

Anyway, that’s it for now… I’ll chime in when I have something to say that DOESN’T have anything to do with assisting and hopefully it will put a smile on your face.

Thanks for reading,
-Steph

Off Topic: Did you know? Technology.

This is the first blog post on our site that really doesn’t have anything to do with executive assisting, admin assisting, assisting in general or work!... isn’t that nice?

The below video is one you can watch when you have a little down time and want to get a glimpse of how technology has grown over the last couple of years and how it will continue to grow down the road. Just some eye-opening statistics and information that we found interesting and thought you might too.

Don’t worry though, tomorrow we’ll get back to giving you the tips, tricks and resources assistants use to succeed that we’re known for. [Sales plug alert!] - If can’t wait until tomorrow and you want to get all of our training, tools, templates, checklists and any answer to any assisting question you have right now, go ahead and enroll!

Now for the show:
