  4. Please join us in the VANA Seminar Room on Wednesday, March 12, at 6:00 p.m. for this week's exciting seminar. Felicia J. Slattery, Communication Transformation, will be presenting "Increase Business by Communicating Your Credibility". Here’s an equation you probably never learned in school: Increased Credibility = Increased Business + More Cash Flow. If you own a small or home-based business, this could be the only equation you need to know! Many business owners and sales professionals often don't realize the number one way we can gain new business is by increasing our credibility. During this information-packed presentation you will learn important factors to increasing your credibility, which will almost automatically increase your business and ultimately your cash flow. The main topics covered include: how to truly know your audience, understanding the three C's of credibility, and discovering what specific materials you’ll need when presenting to your particular target market or audience. We look forward to seeing you there!

    VANA Seminar

    Please join us in the VANA Seminar Room on Wednesday, February 6, at 6:00 p.m. for this week's exciting seminar. Cindy Greenway, Multiple Streams Team, will be presenting "The “Secret Ingredient” Clients Want from Virtual Assistants". In the last 2 years, Cindy Greenway has spoken with over 400 business owners who were looking for a Virtual Assistant. These potential clients all had one request in common – they wanted a VA who was willing to take initiative and play more of a ‘partner’ role versus simply taking care of administrative tasks – an ingredient most had not found in the Virtual Assistants they had spoken to. In this session Cindy will take Virtual Assistants through the steps to implementing the ‘mindset’ – from "taking inventory" to providing exactly what the client is looking for. Participants will learn how to apply this "secret ingredient", stand apart and think ahead of their clients. The information presented in this session is guaranteed to strengthen current client relationships and help VAs become a magnet for new clients. We look forward to seeing you there!
