About My Business:

 

I began my virtual office assistance practice in June of 1996. The first client literally dropped into place when I answered an ad for a home-based typist for a local newspaper. Since then Ritchie Secretarial Service has provided quality virtual assistance across Colorado, the nation and the world. Being an entrepreneur is very important to me. I believe in what I'm working to accomplish. I love being my own boss and working for myself. I am the only thing standing in my way and the only thing making things happen. For me, creativity is essential. The surge of emotion that comes from within after designing the 'perfect' graphic, writing the 'perfect' chapter, or winning another award for having such an 'excellent' Website.... I would have to say is nothing short of addicting. Even more important for me is being taken seriously as a professional - whether it be as a writer, designer, or a virtual assistant. Enlightenment is key to the success of the Virtual Assistant industry. To this end, I have committed to spreading the word about virtual assistants. I have been featured and/or quoted in the Denver Business Journal; Virtual Summit; Entrepreneur’s Startups Magazine; In Search of Excellence; ParentPreneur Magazine; Business-Seeds.com; The Portal Business Park News (Lead Columnist); and interviewed for presentations to the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP-Toronto), the Wall Street Journal and WorldTalkRadio.com, the Mary Goulet Show: StreetSmart Success. One of the most meaningful times in my career was in 2009 in Sterling, Colorado where I was honored work with Logan County Social Services to teach people on Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) basic computer and office skills so that they might eventually work themselves off assistance. This is a pilot program, and one of the only programs of its type. I worked with a number very intelligent and determined women, and I'm very proud of their accomplishments. Because of the training, several were able to obtain better paying jobs. Good Work Ladies!
