  1. Hello! It has been a while since I visited here, and I am so happy to be able to connect again. (I actually had to have my password reset -- so thank you for getting me set up again!) My business has been building itself on a slow and steady basis, mostly with local clients, which I really enjoy. I am now at a stage where I feel comfortable branching out in the real virtual sense and cannot wait to spread my wings and soar high. Thanks again for this great forum
  2. Hello, Amanda. I just came across your post, and I am so happy for you! You are definitely on the highway to success. Congratulations on your hard work -- it is paying off!
  3. Thank you so much, Patty and Donna. You are so right. What is so sad is that I truly enjoy writing and I always have. And right again, I have been really busy with work -- good thing! I love the idea of a newsletter, and that is a super idea to seek help with it -- at least at first to get me going. Then maybe during lull periods, I could catch up with it on my own. I had not even thought of that. Yes, you are right, Donna, in regard to the bi-annual newsletter. I don't know what I was thinking . It does make me feel so much better having read your opinions on me trying to keep up with the Joneses. Thank you again for your support.
  4. Hello, Amanda. I have to say, that is so very, very, way cool. I would be extremely excited as well!
  5. This is really a great question. Even though I do want to create a newsletter, it is just one extra thing at the moment that I feel is adding to my "needing to keep up with the Joneses." With my Facebook page (that I have all but abandoned), Twitter, a blog, keeping up with posts to other blogs, trying to stay up to date with our forum, and of course, working on projects, there just seems to be no time at all to consider working on a newsletter -- at least one that is published monthly. Right now I am working on posting to my blog on a monthly basis. Because I see others blogging so frequently, I am concerned that may be too far and few between posts? I started out with the notion of staying consistent and on track with a monthly post -- and not just post for the sake of posting. Which leads me to a newsletter -- would it be okay to publish a newsletter bi-annually? Or am I way off track? How do you all do it? Please do tell your secret. It is near impossible trying get it all done solo. Yes, I'm chocking, sinking, gasping!
  6. Added tid-bit of info -- a whopping 73.3% of VAs interviewed said "NO" resume!
  7. Thank you so much for joining in on my little "poll." I have got great answers and am now on my way to blogging. I'm a little biased on the resume issue (since it is one service I'm thinking of providing) I agree wholeheartedly -- there is a time and a place for a resume. But as you will read in my blog (hopefully you will read my blog ), let's not put those resumes away yet Again, thank you for taking the time to give me your opinions!
  8. What excellent responses from everyone! Thank you for commenting -- I feel each response will add so much credibility when I write about this subject in my next blog attempt . I am a stickler for facts! Thank you again for taking the time to comment.
  9. Thank you, Brenda, for your reply. I will let you know the overall opinion.
  10. Hello, everyone. I hope your Holiday Season was a beautiful one. I see the season is still in full swing here. I love it. I actually took down my tree today . . . It's always a sad day . But on to my question. I recently was in a discussion in regard to resumes (or a professional summary), specifically for business owners and if we (as business owners) use a resume and supply a potential client with one if asked. My opinion is that a resume can be useful to share with a potential client so that they can see your past accomplishments, experiences, etc. I don't feel it needs to reflect an idea that because you supply someone with a resume, that you are in a way "applying" for a job. I think a great resume can enhance a business owner's professionalism -- but that's just my opinion, and I would love others' thoughts on this. My February blog will be discussing this topic, and it would be so helpful to have opinions from other VAs and other business owners. I have started to already see there are a lot of different opinions on the subject, and I think it can be quite interesting to blog about . . . hopefully! I hope to see what you all think, and thank you so much for taking the time to submit your poll (or opinion).
  11. I just responded. I'm new to the blogging scene -- as you will read in my blog, as it's geared to those who are blog-shy as I am.
  12. You have such a beautiful family! Welcome to this fantastic forum. I'm pretty new here myself -- but let me tell you, you will definitely receive great advice from everyone here. Have a wonderful Christmas with your children and your entire family!
  13. I've got to say -- blogging is my new wild horse. Gotta tame him, break him in, and be his master! I am also lost with the whole blogging thing. I read an article recently about blogging (well, it was actually geared to de-aging your resume). But here is a link to that great article: (De-aging Your Resume). This article really hit home with me. My resume was definitely "old." (Oh ... bad three-letter word!) And with this in mind, I wrote my first blog: A Non-blogger's Mastery of "The Blog." I agree with everyone here. Having a blog and contributing to other VAs' blogs is super important to our careers. To all non-bloggers: Join me in taming "The Blog"!!!!!!
  14. I'd like to first say that I love, love, love the Christmas theme. I may just leave the site up all day so that I can watch the snow fall The holiday party sounds like so much fun! What a fantastic idea! I will most definitely plan on being here for that! As you can see from all my exclamation marks, I am very excited about this event. Thank you, ladies, for putting this together. I can't wait for December 15!!
  15. This was fantastic advice. I will definitely check out Elance. Thank you for such a great post!
