On September 25, 2001 I uploaded my first online business website named Creative Virtual Office. Little did I know that I was nearly ten years ahead of my time! The concept of a virtual office was new and people weren’t sure what that actually meant – let alone how a virtual office would expand and support their business without hiring full time employees.
In an effort to describe to people what types of services that I provided, I created individual websites to highlight each service. WordPress websites, Cartoons, Graphic Recording were highlighted and examples were posted online to highlight what could be created in a virtual office. Business grew and people started recommending me.
However, I encountered a new problem – and that was that people who were referred to my business with the understanding that I built websites were confused that I created cartoons and original artwork as well as graphic and administrative services. It appeared that I was talented … but scattered all over the place and that wasn’t something I wanted.
I thought that by switching to the domain name of ArtnWebs.com, that this would expand the understanding of my clients better. This worked – for awhile. The problem was that confused people too! Was I a web designer or a cartoonist? Did I provide administrative services or illustrate books? What the heck is graphic recording? To have so many services to solve the problems that small business encountered was pure joy to me, but at the same time, incredibly frustrating because people in general need categories to comprehend how something fits in the big picture of things.
Did someone mention the “big picture?” A light went on … and I started to get my Creative MoJo on! Ten years had passed and after being approached to sell the domain name of “CreativeVirtualOffice.com” more than once, a light went on …
The world had caught up to the concept of not only virtual services, but of the need for creative services!
Here’s the fun part about this creative journey of mine – I could understand the similar journey of entrepreneurs and other creative individuals as they navigated through their own business odyssey. Now I could not only provide services, but I found myself providing Creative Coaching to individuals on product ideas, tools and how to envision the future of their business while addressing the day to day details and provide them with the affordable services that they needed to get it all done.
An entire decade of expanding, growing, refining, creating, exploring and serving authors, speakers, entrepreneurs and nonprofits in a wide range of creative services, and creative coaching has resulted in the rebirth of Creative Virtual Office – only this time, it’s on steroids!
