March 6th our family celebrated Ghana’s Independence Day 🇬🇭. 64 years since Ghana broke free from British colonial authority.
This week I considered hiring a Virtual Assistant, using Calendly or even Superhuman to better handle my email inbox and calendar scheduling as I recognise it is taken hours out of my week.
Any recommendations, please let me know.
I appreciate all my female followers as we celebrate International Women’s Day today, #IWD2021.
