Testimonial Raves ...

How important is this forum to your VA business and why?

Very important. Since as a profession, we don't work in proximity with others in similar positions - this forum serves as a sort of virtual watercooler where we can commiserate, congratulate and exchange experience, ideas and tips. Also a place where we can bounce ideas off a peer group and get some truly insightful answers. Plus some of y'all are a hoot!
Sue Rodney

It gives me a chance to see things in different ways that maybe I hadn't thought of before. I learn at least one thing new nearly every time I am on the I find it very educational. I like to be able to talk in a group with people who know what I'm talking about...and who I understand as well as who understand me.
