  1. Thank you so much for doing this. I SOOOOOOO have been needing this. I recently became a VAinsider Super Charge member and have not been able to make use of all the great resources available to me. As Patty knows, I have bugged her on more than one occasion about not being able to access my benefits so, at the risk of not wanting to keep doing so, I plan to attend the orientation and figure out what I've been doing wrong. Looking forward to it...
  2. I agree. If you earned more than $600 in the year from any one company or individual, you should be receiving a 1099 from them. Be aware, however, that many companies do not send these out or are even aware of their obligation to do so. In the view of the IRS, you are still responsible for claiming all the income that you have received, whether or not you are furnished with a 1099. My understanding is that the IRS is beginning to come down hard on this and has even put into place a "checks & balance" system for matching company reported 1099 information with the independent contractor reported info. Which means, in theory, that all reported 1099 services will need to also come through the IRS in the form of claimed income from the contractors. My advice, do not underreport...it's not worth it. BTW, your clients should have sent out their 1099s no later than January 31st so if you have not received one yet, you may need to follow up. But remember, no matter if they abdicate their responsibility or not, you should not abdicate yours. Hope this helps.
  3. Thank you, Tawyna, for letting us know about this valuable resource and great bargain! I jumped on it and now I can't wait to get it in the mail. I'm SO excited to start learning all about this aspect of the industry that I have been so curious about. I have a feeling that great things are ahead...
  4. Well, it's official. I have registered for my first VA conference. Yeah!!! I have to admit that I'm feeling all sorts of emotions relating to my decision to attend --- excited, nervous, excited, anxious, excited, intimidated and (did I mention) EXCITED!!! I can't wait! Just the thought of actually attending the conference and meeting other VAs has already served to give me the kick in the pants that I've been needing to move my business forward. All you veteran VANA members ROCK! You have shared such valuable info and feedback on your posts and my business is better for it. I can't wait to thank many of you in person in Phoenix. What a fun an informative time it's shaping up to be. See you in 75 days! (BTW...I've filled out the "Roommate Questionnaire" online and was wondering if anyone knew when those match-ups were going to start happening?)
  5. Hello, my fellow So Cal VAs! If you're a "motivational junkie" like me, you're going to LOVE this... "Get Motivated!" seminars is coming to Anaheim on Wednesday, Feb. 17th. The speakers at this year's event are AMAZING...Rudy Giuliani, Gen. Colin Powell, Rick Belluzo, Michael Phelps, Condaleeza Rice, Tamara Lowe, Lou Holtz &...the one and only, ZIG ZIGLAR! I have attended these events in the past and they have served as a motivating catalyst for me personally and professionally. With that said, I would love you to join me. I have purchased four tickets to the show for myself and three others to attend. I am offering them FREE OF CHARGE to the first ladies interested in meeting up at the seminar. I would love to connect with other VAs in my area and thought this might be a great way to do that. So, if you're interested, here are the details: Wednesday, February 17th 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM (Long day, but well worth it.) Honda Center in Anaheim, CA website: http://getmotivated.com/Default.aspx I hope to be able to meet you and share in this impactful opportunity with you. My contact info is as follows: Susana Sifuentes-Prieto 714-397-5168 (cell) ohsusana9@ hotmail.com Here's to our mutual success!!!
