I love the content - it is thoughtful, relevant, and inspiring. Sometimes being an EA can feel like you’re on an island, but having a forum and resource like Practically Perfect PA is truly a gift. I am not alone, the problems I face are not exclusively mine, and there are other assistants who are striving to be the beat version of themselves. What more could a gal need?

I love all of the articles I receive from Practically Perfect PA. But more than that is the sense of transparency in the sharing of that information. In the assistant world, too many people hoard information as their "edge up" rather than tools that can be shared and expanded upon.

It's evident that PPPA is written by someone who has been in the same boat as me at varied times in their career - it's real time experience and advice that I really value - PPPA is one of the only publications I take time to read on a regular basis - it's not constantly selling training courses which really turns me off!
