I’m thinking back to the year 2005 when I attended AssistU’s online training program to become a Virtual Assistant. In an email to my trainer instead of signing ‘hugs’ I said I’m sending you virtual hugs and so ‘vugs’ was coined. I’ve become the ‘vugs’ gal ever since. 😉
Last year our annual AssistU Homecoming event was held if San Diego and one of our VAs took my vugs a step further and it became ‘vugs to hugs’ because we were meeting in person and could hug each other’s necks. The virtual relationships and bonds I have built over the past seven years as a VA have astounded me. People want to connect. People care. People reach out. People are willing to be authentic and vulnerable even though they haven’t met you face-to-face. People are amazing.
Today I am celebrating the letter V for VUGS! And I’m winging a vug your way which I ask in turn you give away as a hug to the next person you see!
