  1. Microsoft Access? I'm sure there are more user friendly programs out there though.
  2. I had no idea Vista Print would do something like that! It is a company I was just about to do business with, I wanted to order all my promotional material from them. This sure changed my mind! I'm sorry this happened to you Crystal. It is outrageous.
  3. WOW Chris! I knew bourbon had to be the answer! And you are not alone!
  4. OMG Dana, that is so funny! I would like to explain in detail how I feel about this subject, but I know every other word would have to be and I'm afraid that would offend someone! Just to protest against your cursing, I will make sure I follow you even more closely than I have so far.
  5. That's a great website Patty! Thank you! Cris Buchert
  6. Hi Val, This is an issue I think all newbies struggle with. I'm glad you mentioned you are not pretending to be a potential client because there is a big discussion about that and it obviously annoys everyone. I'm still waiting for my VAC to arrive because I want to make sure I take it one step at a time and do it the right way. In the meantime, I decided to only offer services I'm very familiar with and then grow from there. Regarding rates, have you downloaded Tawnya's "Services Pricing Worksheet"? It really gives you an idea about what you should be charging. I don't know what to tell you about contacting other VAs. Cris
  7. Hi Dee, Welcome to VANA! I'm also new here, but there's one thing I can tell you. This is the best place to learn about becoming a VA. Everyone is so supportive and knowledgeable! You are going to love it! Cris Buchert
  8. What kind of writing software are you looking for? What are you planning on writing? Cris
  9. Sandra, I decided to stay with my WebEasy 7 Pro for now. It builds websites and that's what I need. You might want to give it a try, it's only about $50 and it comes with templates. It's not Dreamweaver, but it's worth the money. Cris
  10. Thank you for getting the list out Cynthia! I see we already have another member. Is the meeting next week still on? Denise, regarding your question, I'm sort of VA wannabe almost ready-to-be. I don't even know at this point. I've been researching this for a long time and it's something I really want to do. I've done a lot of VA related projects in the past, I had office jobs and managerial positions. Right now I'm waiting for my VAC (it's backordered and I think Tawnya is shipping it today). I'm also praying for some inspiration to find a good business name that's NOT already registered as a domain. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that I want to be ready for that first real client, not get them and .... I sent you a friend request on Facebook, I wanted to invite you to join the DFW Virtual Assistants group. It looks like you've been doing this for a while and we'd be honored to have you.
  11. Ruth, I was just messing with you. You didn't really it for me, you saved me money in the long run. Thank you for posting that. Cris
  12. Ladies, The group I set up on Facebook is a private group right now. I was just trying to keep the creeps and the spammers out and I also wanted us to be able to talk about everything without potential clients seeing it. However, since this is a democracy, if you want it open to everyone - and i mean everyone - let me know and I'll change it. Contact me anytime if you have trouble. Just request to join. Cris
  13. Thank you Ruth! That ruined it for me... but better safe than sorry. Cris Buchert
