This day always reminds me of how lucky I am and how short life can be.


Forever changed!

(Originally Published on: Mar 3, 2013) One month ago, I found out I lost a dear friend at the young age of 44. She has been on my mind constantly. Her 11-year-old son never leaves my thoughts. I pray that he gains the strength to cope with his loss. I can only image how he feels and how her family is dealing with their loss. I want to call, email or text her like we did (almost) everyday.

Do you work from home? Part 2 October 26, 2016

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mechele W. Petrie @ 6:42 pm


I never set out be an entrepreneur. However, I have been blessed to spend the last 14 years working remotely and most importantly, spending extra time with my kids while they are young. After leaving the corporate world in 2002, freelancing has truly been one of the best but toughest jobs I have ever held. Yet, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

I have worked with some great companies over the years. This summer, I was lucky enough to find Worldwide101. They were recently recognized as one of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” by Entrepreneur magazine’s Entrepreneur 360™ List.

I work as a Virtual Assistant specializing in Marketing and Social Media. I thoroughly enjoy working with different clients from around the globe. If you are a small to medium sized business looking for extra help, I encourage you to look at Worldwide101. Virtual Assistants are also available in areas of Executive Administration, Project Management, and Customer Service to name a few.
