Gigantic List of Awesome Assistant Websites

 

I created my website for many reasons, one being that I had a hard time finding many websites geared towards assistants that share best practices and resources.

 

I’m sure most of you know about the larger websites, but since I published my website I have come across several not so obvious ones run by others in our field. There is such much that we can learn from each other, so finding others that have put their knowledge out there is always exciting!
