  1. I prefer QuickBooks over Xero, but I use the desktop version on a cloud-based server. I dislike the QuickBooks Online as QuickBooks did a disservice to its customers by creating QuickBooks Online.
  2. Great to see that VAnetworking.com is getting mentioned. Redbook is a great start!
  3. Paulette: That is odd that the desktop version is forever freezing, not responding, etc. I have never had that problem with QuickBooks (with any of their desktop versions). I did have one client who had to split their QuickBooks file because it was too large. At that point, they were having issues with QuickBooks, but once the file was split they stopped having problems with their QuickBooks. [There is a size limitation for QuickBooks.]
  4. Danielle: It depends. If I am the only one using LogMeIn, then it's great; but if there are one or more users using the server and I am on LogMeIn, then it is so slow (or at least to me).
  5. Julianne I do not recommend using QuickBooks online, especially if they have been using the desktop version. I use a hosted QuickBooks solution with one of my clients, www.cpaasp.com. You and your client will need to have your own, legal version of QuickBooks. The QuickBooks will then be loaded onto a Virtual Desktop where you and your client will both be able to use QuickBooks (at the same time). There is a one-time set up fee, plus a monthly fee per user. [You will need to get their current costs.] I also access QuickBooks through "Logmein", which is remote access (for two other clients). There is a free version of this and you would access QuickBooks through your client's computer, through Logmein. One of my clients has several people accessing QuickBooks and he did not want to pay the per user cost to access the hosted version of QuickBooks. Another client is only project-based, so I set them up through Logmein because they did not need to have the expense of a hosted solution. I hope that this helps.

  9. Don't forget that this Thursday, October 18, 2012, at 1:00 pm PDT [4:00 pm EDT] we will have Lynette presenting a FR-EE Webinar "Construct a Solid Affiliate System for Your Client".
  10. There are only three months remaining in 2012. In one of my business classes, I was told that normally businesses begin to wind down at the end of the year only to start back up at the first of the year. They said that if you want to continue with your momentum you need to keep going and not wind down. Now is the time to start thinking about the clients that you want for 2013. What are you going to do to find those clients? Look back at what you have done this year to get clients, what worked, what didn't. Now that the year is almost over, is there something that you should have done differently? Now is the time to begin to concentrate on what you want to do in 2013. Sure, you still have three months of 2012 to go, but don't stop now. Just because the year is coming to a close doesn't mean that you need to slow down. [Yes, there are the holidays coming up and everyone will be frantic.] By beginning to work on planning for 2013 now, means that you will be able to continue on with what you need to do in order to be in front of your target market (clients) in January and not thinking about it in January and getting around to it by February. I would love to hear your comments, thoughts, whatever --
  11. On Thursday, October 18, 2012, join us as Lynette Chandler presents a FREE webinar "Construct a Solid Affiliate System for Your Client". While a majority of a good affiliate program stems from solid management, it can also be hindered by bad technology and its setup. Join us as we go through elements of a good affiliate system, where to find them and how to pull it all together. The FREE webinar will begin at 1:00 pm PDT [4:00 pm EDT]. Don't forget to put this on your calendar as you will not want to miss Lynette's presentation. If you haven't signed up for the free webinars, go here to register.
  12. Finally VAjot night is back!!! On October 11, 2012, we resume our VAjot nights (alternating with the FR-EE Webinars). Bring a headset with microphone and join us so that you will be able to talk with use. Even if you don't have a microphone, you can join us and type your comments in the "chat area". We will begin at 1:00 pm PDT [4:00 pm EDT]. I would love to have you all join us. [Once I locate the link to the room I will post it. Don't want to give out the wrong link.]
  13. Cathy Until Tawnya mentioned it in Angela's webinar today, I didn't even pick up on it. LOL Granted sometime in the future -far, far, away, I may decide to learn GIMP. Although you made it look so simple, that's why is now sometime in the future and not on the probably not ever list. LOL
