  3. I hardly use the telephone but I think it's important to still have one. I'm looking to find a provider that's not too expensive but so far the ones I've found still cost too much. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  5. INTRODUCTION: Your Name: Jodie Michelle Hecker Your Website URL (if applicable): - www.beautybizcopywriter.com and www.beautybusinesscoachtraining.com Years in Business: 10+ However, not online, just offline. Trying to earn money online now. Description of your Business, including any specialties: email marketing, pinterest, copywriting, blog posts, skin care and makeup, social media posting On a more personal note: What City/Town/State/Country are you from?: Gaithersburg MD Hobbies & Interests: swimming, being outdoors, travel, writing, reading, constant learning, finance, hanging out with my grandmother and niece and nephews. How did you hear about us? i.e. Google search (what keywords did you search?), article in magazine (name of mag?), word of mouth (who?), etc. email from Nicole on the net. MY SHORT STORY- I started my beauty career in International television, after taking an online camera media makeup class. I simultaneously worked as a regional artist with some of the top international companies: such as Chanel, Estee Lauder, and Lancome; just to name a few. I went on to get my Esthetican license. At the same time while doing working as a Beauty professional I became very interested in Online marketing and devoured everything that I could get my hands on. You might say that I'm obsessed with learning how the online marketing world works. Till this day I am always learning something new that I can use to earn money online, in addition to making people beautiful offline. My other love is real estate and writing, and look forward to combing the two interest's. In addition to my work, I also volunteer for the American Cancer Society's "Look Good, Feel Better" program. I teach women and teens going thru chemotherapy makeup and skin care tips. This is my most favorite job that I have. I have a family that I love, and love spending time with them. Especially my 103 year old Grandmother. I just love her. I love swimming and gymnastics, and can be found glued to the TV during the Olympics. I look forward to starting and quickly growing my business so that I can make money and have more freedom. Cant wait to meet you Jodie Michelle
  6. I work for Fancy Hands and I made $18 on 3 tasks and got paid on time but it is annoying trying to get tasks done because you go to message the clients and The Fancy Hands Admins read all messages first and they will make you go back and fix errors or how you word something and it ends up pissing you off when your just trying to get something done quickly. It took hours to send a quick message to the client they are to up in your business. But they are quick easy tasks and you can make money.
  7. Hello Everyone! How are you ? My name is Alonda Sims and I'm from Arkansas. I'm 30 years old and excited about starting a NEW career in Virtual Assisting. I started my company about 2 years ago. I've always had the skills for it but never thought about actually making it into a business until now. With starting this business it is with high expectations that I look forward to having one of the top virtual assisting companies in the WORLD! BIG words for someone as young as me right? Well, I believe in my self and I know that I can do it and especially if I have the right team surrounding me. I believe this industry is meant to help pushing the next person into the next phase of their Destiny and for some pushing them into the beginning phase of Destiny. However, I find that in this early part of my career, what you put in is what you get out. Early mornings and late nights is for those who are hungry for that next level. For me, although I do need the money for bills but that's not why I chose to work as a virtual assistant. I chose this career because I love helping and pushing others towards their greatest potential. I believe that we will share the same hunger however it's up to us on rather we choose to feed each other the knowledge and skills that was given to us.

  9. Hello, I am not completely new. I have just started in a new area and wanted to introduce myself again. I am Julie from Indiana. I have decided to get serious with business and I believe I will gain some connections here better than just SM.

  11. It's main use would be to backup files. I have an old WD but 500mb is nothing these days so I have to get something with way more capacity. Thanks for you feedback ladies!!
  12. Depends on what you're looking for to be honest. Are you looking for speed? Then Western Digital Black are the best of the physical hard drives. But they may be too much to be bothered with if you're just looking for something for business because their cost is fairly high but not as high as a solid state drive. I have a 2 terabyte one in my gaming rig. It's been several years though and I'm surprised it hasn't died on me since I'm very hard on my computers. Seagate would be my second choice after Western Digital. I believe Seagate offers hybrid setups though. That means part of it is an SSD (Solid State Drive) and the other part is a standard physical drive. I don't like these because the SSD tends to be very small and many programs still won't let you determine which drive to install on so it makes it fill up faster. My laptop has a 256gig SSD and it's much much faster than my WD Black but has less space. It's also brand new and more expensive than the WD Black. If you are looking to work with a standard non gaming physical Hard Drive then either Western Digital or Seagate would be fine. Standard drives don't have anything special about them, it's just personal preference. You will get that "whir" noise when it spins up. SSD are more expensive but they're faster and completely silent. I'm good with computers and build my own (except for laptops. Those are a special circumstance since they're so different). If you have any questions, I'm happy to help. I can even walk you through installing it yourself if you like. It's surprisingly easy but it's not a done and go thing. It needs to be tested to make sure it doesn't burn out after three days.
  13. I use the WD ones, I own about 5-6 or them. I actually have the 4TB one in my wishlist to order at some point as I want another one. This is the one I buy. I've had no issues with them (am on a Mac). I also own these cases to keep them in for traveling and even just at home so that they don't get damaged. I haven't tried the seagate ones, I'm sure they are fine though too.
  14. Hello there! I'm looking at getting a new backup drive. The two above seem to be the most popular and high rated ones so I was wondering which one do you use and would you recommend it. Thanks!
  15. Hi Sue Ann, welcome to VAnetworking! Do you have an idea of what services you'd like to offer clients?
  16. Hi Maralee, welcome to VAnetworking! What is your background? As in, what skills do you have to offer? You don't necessarily need training.
  17. I just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Maralee and I am very very new to the VA idea. Still going through the free resources available on the site and am getting a TON of information. My poor brain is a little overwhelmed but I am really really wanting to stay home and be able to make my own schedule while having fun and being able to help people. Getting started does anyone have any tips and tricks for free or cheap programs to start out with? As we don't have a ton of money to throw at this, and my hubby is not for sure convinced I will stick with it. Which is kind of fair as I keep getting ideas and run with it for a little bit and then stop So any advice would be so appreciated! Thank you so much!
  18. Hi my name is Sue Ann Walker. I signed up for this virtual assistant because I'm really interesting in learning something new and being able to apply it in my everyday life.
  19. As stated in our last coaching call, these are a good start but they are not sized correctly for a website so check with your developer on size dimensions required. I just started a contest at 99designs to get our logo redesigned so will be excited to share the top 3 with all of you to vote on in 5 days or so.
  20. Hi Christina and welcome! If you have any question just ask us
  21. Hey we have a great trend going here! Danielle is an Innovator that collaborates with the Maker (me), who collaborates with the Visionary (Tawnya). This is the start of a really creative team!
  22. My creative type is Visionary. Imagining the impossible. Creative Strengths: Full of big ideas, ability to see potential and possibility everywhere Untapped Potential: Using your visions to fuel consistent daily action Ideal Collaborator: The Thinker You live in a world of infinite possibilities, preferring to see things not as they are but as they could be. You know that life is limited only by the boundaries of your own beliefs, and you’re driven to push the limits of, well, everything. Emotional, passion-driven, and full of ideas, the VISIONARY combines a vivid imagination with a desire for practical solutions. Your introspective and intuitive nature is balanced by a keen interest in the world around you and a desire to contribute to society. Charismatic and expressive, you love sharing your ideas and visions with others and creating community around shared values and ideals. Your greatest gift? The ability to see the spark of potential in everything and everyone, and to inspire others to see it, too. You’re able to guide people toward an invisible horizon with a rare generosity of spirit and strength of conviction. Don’t get stuck in the dreaming stage, VISIONARY. Your greatest challenge—and true power—lies in learning to take consistent daily action to create the future you envision. Seek out the “voice of reason” of the THINKER type to help you take a grounded, rational approach to your creative work. The THINKER’s deep perception and probing intellect lend a powerful clarity that can bring your visions into sharper focus.
  23. My creative type is Maker. Creative Strengths: Focus and dedication, ability to achieve mastery Untapped Potential: Taking creative risks, finding joy and play in the process Ideal Collaborator: The Visionary Driven, focused, and dedicated to the creative process, the MAKER has mastered the art of manifesting ideas and visions in three-dimensional form. Society greatly benefits from the work of MAKER types, who develop the systems, structures, tools, and innovations that the rest of us rely on. One of the hardest workers of all the types, the MAKER is almost always busy solving problems, making headway on personally meaningful goals, and completing projects. There are few things that bring you more satisfaction than applying your brain power to crafting things and making progress in any form. You tend to excel in design, crafts, architecture, and other fields that blend artistry with business and technology. You’re driven by tangible results, and you know how to deliver. A quiet type, you enjoy collaboration but generally prefer to work alone so you can focus on your own creative process. You know how to play the long game, and you’re not afraid to do the unglamorous legwork that goes into building something of value over time. Your gifts of focus and dedication can lead to achieving mastery and coming to be seen by others as an authority in your field. Your biggest challenge? To connect more deeply with your intuition and emotionsin order to bring forth ever more authentic and original work. Productivity is only half the equation of doing great work—the other half is inspiration. Creating the space to dream, imagine, and play can keep your work from becoming rote and mechanical. Combine forces with the enterprising VISIONARY to take your creativity to new heights. The VISIONARY’s soaring imagination gives you permission to dream bigger and envision the impossible—and to fearlessly risk failure in order to make it a reality.
  24. A thread was started in our FB Group and I thought it would be fun to carry it over here. There is this new quiz from Adobe to discover your creative personality type. Let's all take it and see what we get. My creative type is Innovator. Which I felt fit me quite well. Take the quiz for free here: https://mycreativetype.com/ Also, who else skipped all the animations when going through it? Here's my creative type description: THE INNOVATOR Creative Strength: Ability to generate new ideas and innovative solutions Untapped Potential: Mastering the art of executing ideas Ideal Collaborator: The Maker The INNOVATOR sees everything through the lens of possibilities and progress, problems and solutions. You feel the most yourself when you’re using your intellectual and creative powers to solve problems and dream up new and improved ways of doing things. Your attention is largely focused on the world around you, and you’re constantly probing its structures and systems to find ways to push things forward. Change may be scary for most people, but for you, it’s fuel for your creative fire. A pioneer and trailblazer, you’re here on this planet to light the way into the future, helping the rest of us learn to adapt and thrive in times of rapid and unpredictable change. You’re a natural risk-taker, with an insatiable desire to expand boundaries and explore uncharted territories. You’re not one to do things the way they’ve always been done. You thrive when working in service of large-scale change and progress, and your talents equip you well for roles that allow you to experiment and play with ideas. Beware when the initial spark of inspiration starts to wear off and you feel tempted to move on to the next big thing a little too quickly. INNOVATORS tap into their greater potential when they learn to master the art of the follow-through. By finding joy in the “messy middle” of a venture—not just the excitement of the beginning or the satisfaction of reaching the finish line—you’ll become a true creative powerhouse. Seek out creative partnerships with MAKER types, who have the stamina and dedication to take any idea from concept to completion. Seeing the MAKER in action reminds you that taking it one step at a time is a much more effective creative strategy than racing to the finish line.
