Welcome to The Life Refurbished!
Hello, I’m Hayley!
I’m a virtual assistant who specializes in helping small business owners make more time in their day. Owning your own business can be very overwhelming and sometimes all you want is a little extra help, which is where I come in. I can help with many common small business needs while working as a consultant so you don’t have the extra weight of maintaining a full-time employee. If you want more information on my services, please go to my hire me page.
This blog was launched after I decided to move from Wisconsin to Washington state (a HUGE decision.) In the midst of making that decision, I realized that I was really sick of settling in my life. I didn’t want to do things because they were the easiest path or because my family or friends expected them of me. I want to create a life that is wholly my own and that makes me happy.
This leads to the big ideas behind this blog. I want to travel, both with friends and by myself. I want to create my home so that fills me with energy. I want to be able to work from anywhere. I want to rediscover what I want out of this life. And I want to take you with me on this journey and hopefully influence your life for the better, no matter where your better leads you.
Now, a few last notes about me. I arrived in Olympia, WA in August of 2017. My favorite thing in this world is my cat, Hazel. I am a Christian, vegetarian, only child, who’s ultimate goal after graduating university was to be able to afford to feed myself, so I’ve already achieved something I put my mind to.
I try my hardest to post every Monday and sometimes on Thursday. Though, life sometimes gets in the way (not to mention my own laziness.) If you have any questions that are not mentioned here or just want to say hi, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or connect with me on one of my social media platforms.
