Client Testimonials...

"Wow! It's about the only word that came to mind when I enlisted Time Is Of the Essence to help review my new site. After an extensive redesign, and nearing my completion date, I asked Patty to look over my site and find the errors. As someone who relies on her website to connect with clients, it was imperative that all my links were working. Patty went above and beyond what I expected and found things that I never would have noticed. She made sure that it worked in several different browsers and now I have a site that I can be proud of! I highly recommend Patty Dost to help make your business shine!"
Heather Jacobson, Owner of Valley Virtual Assistants and Author of 101 Tips for the Frugal Marketer
"I've been working virtually with Patty for a few months now and I don't know what I've ever done without her. During various conversations we've had, I've explained certain things that I'm looking to do for my business and she's thought of very creative ways to assist me. She also keeps me on schedule with managing my editorial articles and making sure that they're proofread. Patty is second to none when it comes to Project Management. She's right on top of things and very well organized. I'll definitely keep using her services in the future."

"The Business and Professional Exchange (BPE), located in Lafayette, Indiana, provides resources, job search assistance and networking opportunities for displaced workers. In January 2006, Patty Dost came to BPE to use these resources because CTS Microelectronics had closed its operations in the Purdue Research Park. During discussions at one of the meetings, Patty stepped up and volunteered to assist individuals by providing them business cards free of charge. The business cards provide a way for individuals to network. Patty ensures that the BPE member's employment objective, education and experience are printed on the back of the cards. They simply hand employers and/or other interested parties a professional-looking business card with contact information rather than a resume. Patty started her own administrative business at home, but still volunteers her services to BPE and BPE is thankful she does."
Chris Waymire, Vice President of Capacity Building and Organizational Development of Tecumseh Area Partnership (TAP), and President Business & Professional Exchange (BPE)

"Patty has been a key staff member for over 5 years while I served as Plant Manager for CTS Microelectronics. As Administrative Assistant, she supported myself and my staff in preparing Operational Reviews, scheduling meetings for internal and customer visits, preparing reports and correspondence, booking and planning travel, sending faxes, mailings, answering phone calls - there was no support task Patty didn't do. As assistant to the HR Manager, Patty handled many of the day-to-day tasks of the HR department. These included manpower reports, maintaining job descriptions, tracking vacation and other time, maintaining personnel records and scheduling performance reviews, issuing IDs and entry badges, and the list goes on. Not to be done, Patty performed payroll accounting functions as well, ensuring data completed and on time for ADP processing.

Patty has been a pleasure to work with - very professional and always willing to do more. She handles a lot of data with high accuracy. She is proficient with MS applications, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Patty will do a very outstanding job for the next President or General Manager she works for.
