An official hello! Tia Peterson/All American Admin

If there were a way to have a baby carrier physically attached to my back and a laptop carrier physically in front, I would be all set. It seems these days I am either attending to my five month old son Aidan or attending to my new business, All American Admin (I must like the letter “A”). 🙂

I am so happy to be part of Motherhood Incorporated’s blog team and am looking forward to reading and posting. I’m a new mom, a single mom, and a work at home mom, and the combination of the three is both extremely empowering and extremely overwhelming at times. So, groups and associations like this one are so vital to a healthy mind, and a healthy mind is vital to a successful business.

So, here’s my official hello! Aidan and I (after all, he is technically my first business partner) are excited to be here.

The Quick About me and About All American Admin:

I’m originally from the East Coast, born in New Hampshire and bred in Virginia. The furthest west I’ve ever really lived is Tulsa, OK – although I did spent sx quick months in Tucson, Arizona where Aidan was born. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Technical Writing from Oral Roberts University.

I’m back on the East Coast living on a tree-lined street in Erie, PA and absolutely loving it. My weekdays are spent working my new business and mothering Aidan (simultaneously) and my weekends are spent attempting the blended family thing with my boyfriend and his three year old son.

All American Admin is my virtual assistant business. I chose this business because it really suited me. I could have chosen to be a freelance technical writer or telecommuter-technologist, but I actually really like administrative work, and have found a way to put a spin on it: I mix technology with admin work and voila! Now I’m really a techno-assistant, since I mainly assist with technology-related projects. I’ve just recently (as in, today) realized that I could also mix technical writing with my offerings. Everyday I am learning something new.

I am going to selectively simul-post articles here and on my home-based business blog (geared toward other virtual assistants) which is located at In case you are wondering, my company website is Again, we specialize in technical administrative services (like blog installation/maintenance, website design, simple graphic design, internet marketing, shopping cart work, etc) so if you need any of that, let me know!
