  3. I apologize for not seeing your poll yesterday. I like the layout and graphics of the first one the best. If I could give some pointers. When choosing your color (colour) palate, it can be useful to view your design across several devices. This is usually only discussed in the aspect of web page layout and responsiveness, but with the multitude of not only screen sized, but also screen resolutions, the material the screen is made of, the preferred setting of the device user, I find it useful to view my designs across many different devices. With that said, I would recommend adjusting the huge of your pink background if you are going to use the white text color. Your design looks fine on a LCD computer screen and an iPad with bluelight filter on. But, there is significant white bleed from the text into the background when viewed on an LED computer screen or a smartphone that is not configured to filter blue light. I have just started a Canva account if you wanted to share your logo file with me my profile is @ChuckKanupp. I would be pleased collaborate with you. Cheers!
  4. I like the first one just looks more modern than the others.
  5. Hi Rommel and welcome! I visited the Phillippines a few years ago and it is still my most favourite vacation spot. If you have any questions about becoming a VA, please ask us. Enjoy the boards!
  6. Your Name: Hi, I'm Rommel Brillantes Your Website URL (if applicable): I have non at the moment Years in Business: I have been in a non-VA business for a year now. (Academic Support Center) Description of your Business, including any specialties: My business is a tutorial and academic support center, run by my wife. Our center caters tutorials to any subject matter a student may need from assignment to school project to how to project oneself on a stage for a cat-walk and many more. Anything that a student in a need of. I myself is currently working in a startup online buy/sell platform in the Philippines. I am a former teacher in ICT in Thailand. I love teaching kids too. But I am also a cold blodded IT person. I love technologies especially technology that makes things easy and beneficial to mankind. I come to realize, why not put up VA services? So I started lurking through the internet. I search VA in youtube, there's alot search-return, but I chose your VAnetworking video. Got into it, get it on the link, and here I am. I only have a general knowledge of what a VA assistant is, but I don't know the "how to's" nor how to run this type of business. So, I accepted the challenge. So I started looking for answers. On a more personal note: What City/Town/State/Country are you from?: currently a resident of Santiago City, province if Isabela, Philippines. Are you married? How long?: I have been married for 11 years now. Any kids and how old? I have 3 kids. 11, 9, 7 that's their age. I got one daughter and two boys. Hobbies & Interests: Learning new things. Searching answers from the internet. I also search the Bible for self-help. How did you hear about us? i.e. Google search I just typed "VA" and you pop-up!
  7. Hi Everyone, With the help of Elaine Sellars, I was able to make some logos for Webinar Production Agency. I have one that I like better than the others. I am exploring the many features of using Canva Software. Just wanted to get feedback from the group and see what grabbed your attention? And what was it that grabbed your attention? Thanks for your help.
  8. Thank you Tawnya for all the great ideas! I have had some ideas for repurposing this, but you have definitely given me a few more ideas to pursue. I truly appreciate the addition as an affiliate, and I will be diving into the Affiliate Marketing Track very soon. I have so many aspects of my startup I am working on right now, and the ideas for what could be done with this business are really coming at a blistering pace. I believe I should partner with other VAs to help get things moving quicker.(My wife says I need to sleep sometime...LOL) I have a truck load of questions for the upcoming VAInsiders Group Coaching webinars! You're welcome Julian! I am glad I could help with a little inspiration to be a better you! And hopefully these tips can help you be more efficient, exceedingly effective, and execute with excellence!
  9. Welcome to the forum Bettina! I too started to research and found the forum through Google search as well.
  10. Welcome to the forum Laweesa! I see you have some great suggestions. I started here by visiting the forum and reading a lot from others here. All the best.
  11. Welcome to the forum Medina! Don't we all have doubts and concerns about something we think we are not able to do. YOU CAN and YOU WILL! All the best.
  12. Great tips Chuck! Surely needed that for myself. All the best!
  13. Welcome, Jen! We were all scared at one point or another. Hang in there.
  14. Yes, congrats on your first client! I remember when the doors shut down on the computer service company I was working for leaving all the customers hanging. What I did was contact them all and offered to finish their jobs for free for them. A couple of them ended up keeping me as their Virtual Assistant and that's how I got my first clients.
  15. Hi Jen and welcome! I would start by watching the video "What to expect in a career as a Virtual Assistant" inside your free member area. This is an awesome career to bring in part-time money to help supplement your family's income. Ask away if you have questions as we are here to support you!
  16. Great points Chuck! Routine, naps and exercise are all things I try to incorporate into my life but it's not always easy especially the exercise. That's probably because I'm not a lover of sweating though lol! This is a great article and I wonder how you are repurposing it for your business benefit? For example, at the end where you mention my VA fitness site you could add custom affiliate links (I'll make you an affiliate and when you log in you'll now see affiliate tab. Also there is a whole training track in your VAinsiders membership on Affiliate Marketing you can do to learn more of how to make passive money that way). You could then turn this into a blog post, break it up into social media posts, turn it into a YouTube video, put into your newsletter and/or autoresponders as more content for your list. Just some ideas as I'm big into repurposing content.
  17. We all know how much energy and focus it takes to startup and run your own business. It usually means long hours, a lot of multitasking, and juggling projects, not only for clients, but growing and supporting our own business as well. I know for many of us, I am certainly included, that elixir of the gods called coffee is a staple in our days. But, there are days coffee just isn't getting it done. This let down has had me seeking an alternative lately, or at least balance. I don't know that I would ever give up my coffee, but I said the same thing about cigarettes too, and now I'm smoke free. I want to give a few tips to use if you ever find yourself in the same boat. 1. Get a routine! They really aren't that boring. Over the past few years there has been a lot of research into the value of routines. Guess what? Us adults need routines just as much as our kids or pets rely on them to be happy, healthy, and enjoying life. Several years ago Charles Duhigg published a book, "The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business". This book has spurred many into looking at their habits and replacing them with more productive ones. It has also ignited the topic of routines in the blogosphere. I won't go into exhaustive detail regarding all the benefits and the science behind routines, but i will give a couple articles by Danny Forest, a writer on "Medium." In his 2018 article, Danny gives a great example of an effective daily routine. Then this April of 2019, Danny updated his series on routine to give more of the principles for the importance of a routine. Put simply, if you need motivation for the day, want more productivity, and more consistent awesome results from your day, make it routine! 2. Sometimes you just need a nap! In our formative years, we call remember going to our cubby and getting our nap mat, spreading it out as our mom, daycare worker, or teacher turned down the lights. Being a dad, I knew it was not going to be a great evening if my kids didn't get their nap in the early afternoon. So what changed for adolescents and adults? Actually not much physiologically only socially. Our society has come to believe that a nap takes away from being productive and it's childish to need a nap. Oh, wow! Society has it wrong again. Studies show that if everyone would continue throughout life to take those afternoon naps, societal productivity would increase dramatically! lifehack.org published a blog article written by Nicholas Garcia that explains how all that actually works. Oh, and after you read the article, pull down the shade, grab the throw cover on the couch, and take a productivity nap. make it part of your routine, you deserve it! 3. The third tip for today, exercise! I know, I know we have calls to make, email campaigns to develop, invoicing to process, engage with our social media followers, booking flights, hotels, and rental cars...the list is never ending. You can tackle it better when your body is ready it! The Harvard Business Review actually put it this way, "Regular Exercise Is Part of Your Job". Well in our case, it is part of our business! The one activity that you can include in your routine every day that will have the greatest lasting impact on your business success is exercise! Don't believe me? Google it!!!! As a matter of fact, I decided I would do that for you, click here.(I'll invoice you my billable hours!) 78,800,000 results and the first three pages of the results are related to habits and routines. The one thing that is consistently included in the lists, EXERCISE! Did you know that it's not just those articles that support exercise and fitness? VAnetworking.com stronly supports it as well through virtualassitantfitness.com! If you would like to get started in making the biggest impact on your business, get the Healthy Virtual Assistant Fitness Planner. You're not alone either. Be a part of a community that is committed to making their business as wildly successful as possible right here! Have a Fantastic VA Day!
