February is half way through and it’s almost March!

Where does the time go??? What have you been doing this past month to market your business? Remember, marketing is an ever ongoing process and we should spend 20% of our week marketing our business.

I’m getting ready this month to market our next VAvirtuosos.com Spring Series (VAVS5) and if you are a Virtual Assistant who would like to speak at it, please submit your speaking topic to us. Deadline ends February 24th. You do not have to be a professional public speaker to share your knowledge with our network. You just need to be one of us (a VA) who can teach us something of value that has helped you in your Virtual Assistant business. Let’s learn from one another, its the best way to succeed! Submit your presentation here.

On a personal level, I just had my mom visit from Ontario for 10 glorious days of mother-daughter bonding. Miss you mom!

Have you hugged your mom lately? If not, do it right now 😉

Is Your Computer Running Slowly and About to Crash?

Avoid the blue screen of death, My Computer Guy, Mike Van Ert, has an awesome deal for you this week…

This is the best computer maintenance offer he has ever made, a whopping $141 savings over his regular $240 price for six months of remote computer maintenance and updates.

What makes it even better is he works to your schedule. He does all his work at night when you’re done for the day. (He also works on the weekends too). I’ve been using Michael for the past 3 years and I’ve never had a problem with virus or updates. My computer has yet to crash!

I love his service and highly recommend it for you and your clients. You just never know when your business will suddenly stop because your computer went down. Avoid that, get Michael’s offer today 🙂

In summary, great price + great service = great deal!
