About Cheryl

I am the owner of CH Enterprises Virtual Assistant Services. I specialize in providing Virtual Assistance to the Equine Community (Breeders, Farriers, Trainers and Veterinarians to name but a few).

What IS a Virtual Assistant?

I’m glad you asked! A Virtual Assistant or VA is an independent contractor who provides remote administrative support to clients in ongoing, collaborative professional relationships. You can find a more exact definition on my website here.

Are you a business owner that started out wearing all the hats? As you’ve excelled and your company has grown, so have the administrative chores. What once seemed like a small nuisance now seems to take more time than you can spare. Sound Familiar?

That is where I come in. I help get you organized, take many administrative chores off of your plate so you can do what you do best. I tell my potential clients that I can help you “Get Out of the Office, and Back to the Barn!”

Why do you Specialize in the Equine Industry?

When I started my business everyone at the Virtual Assistance Chamber of Commerce (VACOC) gave me two valuable pieces of advice.

1. Find a Target Market

They said by narrowing the field you actually gain a larger audience because your message is not willy-nilly to just anyone but meeting your clients’ specific needs.

When I asked how to decide they told me:

2. Do What you Love and Love What you Do

For me that was a no-brainer. I had previously discovered that I loved doing administrative work in a collaborative relationship; which is what made becoming a VA a natural thing for me to do. And I had horses as a kid and have set my sites on having them again in the near future. I therefore feel the Equine Community is a good fit. I already speak the language and share the passion of fellow horse lovers. And since my office is not near the barn, its a safe bet I won’t be destracted by the “pretty ponies.” In addition, this community seems to be under-represented by other highly skilled VAs and so, for me, it was the right choice.

So, Who are You and Why Should I Read your Blog?

My name is Cheryl Harless (thus the CH in CH Enterprises) and I live in a small condo in the central section of Sunny San Diego, California. I share my home with a long time friend and between the two of us we have 3 cats, 2 birds and some fish. I have owned a small e-commerce site and have worked in several different industries, usually as some type of administrative assistant. I have a strong ethical streak and am sometimes a non-conformist. Another good reason to have my OWN business!

As for why you should read this blog… I plan to provide meaningful information about business in general, Virtual Assistance specifically, and some Equine related information as well. I’m new to blogging, so this should be an interesting journey. I’m not sure what the pace will be, or what kind of scenery we will see on the way. But take a chance, saddle up, and come along for the ride!
