I find I have little tolerance now for pettiness and superficial pursuits. There’s a wealth that has nothing to do with dollars, that comes from the perspective and wisdom of paying attention to your life. It has everything to teach you. And what I know for sure is that the joy of learning well is the greatest reward.

CONNECT WITH JULIE
Julie Perrine is an executive assistant turned CEO and the founder of All Things Admin.
In 2005, Julie left her corporate job and launched her own business as a virtual assistant. In 2009, Julie founded All Things Admin to provide accessible, affordable training, resources, and guidance to admins worldwide. Since then, Julie and her company have become integral parts of the administrative training world by inspiring admins to transform their careers, embrace innovation, and realize their potential. She has also authored three books, The Innovative Admin, The Organized Admin, and Become a Procedures Pro…and has her fourth book in progress.
Julie grew up with her three sisters on a farm in Iowa, where she learned to never wear shorts while baling hay and that wildly flailing your arms in a cattle lot is a big mistake. She’s not a big fan of hiking, camping, or scary movies. But she can pack a suitcase or moving boxes like nobody’s business. She loves working and living in Indianapolis. And if she ever retires, she’d like to spend her time traveling with her husband, Todd, taking her nieces and nephews on educational adventures, and learning how to use the manual settings on her DSLR camera.
