About Rahn Consulting

Patti RahnA Little About Me…

Hi, I’m Patti, owner of a virtual assistance company I coined, Rahn Consulting.

My husband, Rob and I live in a farming community in the Midwest, actually on a portion of the farm that I grew up on! We moved ‘back home’ about a year and a half ago and started building “our little piece of America” (as he puts it). We’ve been happily married for over 16 years, and have three children and two grandchildren.

And now…Rahn Consulting…

In the process of brainstorming, designing and acutal hands on building of our house, I re-created Rahn Consulting. The business was good where we lived before. I worked with local and state government agencies writing and administrating grants, and managing the projects those grants funded. I also worked with local law enforcement agencies, non-profit and for-profit companies providing a variety of administrative services.

From this day forward, Rahn Consulting will be a bit different than in the past. I’ve changed over to the ‘virtual world’. The business now has a presence on the worldwide web helping me to create the business I dream of!


New to Blogging…

December 13, 2006

In an attempt to create a successful virtual business, I’ve read…one must Blog! Well, here I am, making my debut into the blogging world.

What do I say??? A little about my business, perhaps?

A couple of years ago (June of 2000 to be exact) I started Rahn Consulting in another state. At that time, I didn’t think I needed a website because I was known for my skills in the community in which I lived. My ‘rahnconsulting@’ email account seemed to suffice. However, after a 1,600 mile move cross country…I’m a nobody! My husband and I even moved back to my hometown, building our ‘dream home’ on part of the farm I grew up on. Yet in the vast domain of the worldwide web, Rahn Consulting and I are nobodies!

Now, I am in the process of learning how to and trying to, establishing my business on the web. I only recently acquired a website host and created various email accounts. WOW! What a learning experience it has been. But also quite a personal accomplishment…To see something that I’ve created become reality? I want that feeling of exuberance to continue on for years to come along with every success of my business.

I hope to use this blog as a platform to share my thoughts and experiences, and maybe every once in a while an emotion (although I’m not very sharing with those). The trials and tribulations of my journey to virtual business success!

I welcome your comments…See you on the blogs!
