Profile Information

Where I Live:
in a house, in Albuquerque of course!
About Me:
I am a one woman, start up business in the Albuquerque area, but my business is such that I work with people all over the country and overseas. I am a virtual assistant and Since I have started my own business, that is my current obsession and nothing else matters! -edit: Actually, I was told by a friend yesterday that I'm getting a little too obsessive and that frightens people. So I thought I would edit my profile today to reflect more of my kind, altruistic personality, but for the life of me, I can think of nothing else but getting back to work....
Favorite Thing(s) About Albuquerque:
beautiful sunsets, great weather and overall quirkiness!
My Website:
What I'm Reading:
Marketing books, computer books and all things business. If I don't read a frivilous novel soon, I won't be responsible for my actions.

More in the health code line. I figured the city (& probably state, too) would need some sort of a license & I can find that. I'm just not sure where to begin with any health regulations. It would not be an edible, which is very good, as I know those reg's are rigid. Any advice welcomed!

Thanks for the add! based on your page, it looks like we have lots in common (e.g., building a business from ground up).

Is it true that you are a virtual assistant? I may be needed your services. I already use one assistant and may need another. E-mail me at askrocco [at]

Hey there. LOL about the brothel issue. I certainly did not mean to imply ANYTHING!
Bob Ames has not contacted me in quite some time. It wasn't a scam. He didn't ever want anything. He was just plain looney-toons. He was cc-ing me on letters to officials where he was complaining that someone was holding his cat hostage. He would claim it was a war crime to deny him his dinner. Just wacko stuff. I think he got my name off some progressive Democrat list. I found him to be most entertaining.
Do tell about your career. It sounds interesting.

Let's chat about working together soon. I have a couple of clients that could use a virtual assistant, and if all goes well I may need one soon too.

Hi Diva. The Journal featured a story about a "virtual assistant". It sounded like your job description.
How long have you been at this job? Is it an up and coming career?

Hi. Was there a story on you in the Journal today?

Cool! I love Michelle as a massage therapist. She keeps my arms and shoulders mobile. Have you considered, in addition to AIBA, joining a networking group? I belong to one (that Michelle used to belong to) that has done wonders for my business. Let's chat about it.
