Keep reading to learn more about Johnny and his role here at Bloguettes!
What do you love most about working at Bloguettes?
I love that every day is different. No one day is the same, so, when I get of bed, I don’t know what to expect until I check the calendar — (which by the way is always insane!) and things are constantly changing. — I don’t know how our co-founders do it, but they’re booked up solid. It’s truly inspiring to watch them, and all of the team work, and that’s a great part too. I love coming in here each day, it’s super motivating.
Tell us a little bit about what you do day-to-day as an Executive Assistant!
I manage calendars and coordinate a few of our schedules. I also attend meetings and take notes and follow-up with any necessary parties. I also relay tasks from executives to the team, and just try to help out wherever I can! I’m happy to do whatever’s asked of me or whatever needs to be done!
