Dear all!
I was really amazed what a wonderful crowd can come together in a simple site of the internet. Tho I'm not in the electric business, I like to reat these topics.
I am a secretary, and I've found I've had so many questions in my last ten or so years, and always was thankful for everyone that helped me. It wasn't easy for some people still think that a job of an assistant is to make coffee (no problems there) and pick up phones. But I've had more questions in my life than I would ever imagine. So I decided if you have this great site to discuss your toughts, problems, why can't we have one, secretaries of the world?
So I have to learn now some more programming and I'll start my own help-site as to be the assistant of assistants.
Wish me luck, and thank you for all the kindness and laugh, and for the idea too.

Uhh, edited, cause I've forgot to check the -send e-mail if answered...- box.

We hope it can come together for you. Be sure to stop back and let us know how it goes as well as the link. Many of our electrical companies have people like yourself that make our day to day operations actually go smooth. Best of luck

My wife worked as an Executive Admin for many years - she's now a secretary for a church (she's still an admin if you look at her work load and responsibilities), and much happier than living in Corporate USA.

(tho' the pay's less, at least working for a church everyone knows who the real Boss is )

Good luck in your endeavors. Please keep us updated!

There are free message board sites that you don't need to know programming to run. I have not looked into it, but here is one possibility:

http://www.hostboard.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi

You have a great idea! I spent some time as a para-legal and I agree that there is a need, and some great stories. DO IT!

Perhaps, even, the owners of this site might agree to expand their business.

Thank you, but I like to learn new things and prefer not to have free ads on my site.
