50 Things to do Before I'm 50

50 Things to do Before I’m 50

Always up for a challenge, I set myself on a journey to complete 50 things that I have never done before, before my 50th birthday in September 2016

Some people have given me challenges, some I have set myself.

I will be charting my journey on Facebook (one challenge I was set was to take a selfie of every challenge I did and post it to Facebook – here is the link to that album).

Some of the things I have completed so far are…

  1. Find a geocache (too easy so I have upgraded it to find 50)
  2. Make a Great British Bake Off technical challenge
  3. Get Food Intolerence Tested
  4. Volunteer for the day with a charity
  5. Deliver cupcakes to the homeless people in Bath
  6. Run a UK marathon and beat my PB (smashed by PB by 29 minutes)
  7. Sell Poppies
  8. Ride a Zip Wire
  9. Complete a Duathlon
  10. Complete the Movember (move every day in November) challenge

And some on the list to complete are….

  • Win a competition
  • Add to my race medal collection so that I have 50 medals in total
  • Get 2,000 followers on Twitter
  • Learn a new skill
  • Give up wine for January
  • Give up chocolate for Lent
    And many many more

I still have a few challenge spaces left if anyone wants to send me a challenge – just email me

Let me introduce myself

October 30, 2012

My name is Angela MacAusland and I own and run  AM PM PA Limited which is a Virtual PA for a Day company.

I set up AM PM PA in Bath in 2009 and have been successfully trading ever since.

Myself and my team of PA’s work mainly virtually, but we can spend time in your place of work too if needed.

Our clients are actually based all over the UK – but we work from our offices here in Bath – that’s the beauty of being virtual!

We even run our own ‘Just for a Day’ service, where we come into your office for one day and blitz your backlog – leaving you with a clear desk!

Your To Do List becomes our To Do List

Getting Started in LinkedIn

October 11, 2012

On Wednesday 26th September, around 30 Bath business owners joined Angela MacAusland at the Bath and County Club, to learn about ‘Getting Started in LinkedIn’.

Angela, a committee member of the FSB Bath Branch, and FSB member since starting her Bath based business AMPMPA Ltd, is an avid user of social media and in particular LinkedIn.  Using her previous skills (IT, marketing, coaching, training) Angela delivered an hour long training session to the group on not only how to get started in LinkedIn, but how to make the most of some of the features.

Angela shared her top 5 ‘Classic LinkedIn Mistakes’ as follows:-

1 – Upgrading to a premium account and not using the features
2 – Not updating your status regularly
3 – Not having a complete and professional profile
4 – Not having the right people in your network
5 – Joining too many groups and not engaging with people

Some of the feedback directly after the event was.

“Thank you very much for yesterdays do, it went magnificently well and you were star!  a good combination of information, facts and practical as well as a bit of humour.  Well, done.”

“Angela, the linked in talk you gave on behalf of the Bath FSB was great. I came away knowing a lot more than I went in that’s for sure. Sitting and listening to you was entertaining and inspiring, if you give any more talks in the future I will definitely back to listen to them. Thank you once again. I would recommend that everyone should attend your presentations, as they are very clear and informative”

“Well done Angela – a great event with some excellent tricks to use”
