  1. Sarah, I like your ever so faint accent! I believe, I've only heard it because I have the very same accent *g*. Other than that: Some very great tips on LinkedIn, a couple of them I knew already (guys, rapportive is great!!! And mix it with Wisestamp and maybe donanza and you get full linkedin marketing impact in your signatures! (donanza circles the recommendations you have in your signature)) A few things I have to try out. Didn't know about the change of UI and will also try the MyBox app once I have something to put in there.
  2. I have the very same problem, as I've stated here: http://www.vanetworking.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=23290&view=findpost&p=140126 Have not been able to take part on all courses and particularly bought into the pay-more/check-later program, so I am rather sad, that I cannot access them and that no-one answered to my previous post. Please, could you admins look into it?
  3. I've recently bought the premium option and could put it to use right away: I did my translation work in Evernote and shared it with my proofreader, who in turn could edit the files. Then I've shared it with my client for quality control before I've formatted it to his wishes in my office program! Also, I've added Wappwolf which enables direct share between dropbox and evernote. Additionally I've signed up for ifttt.com and Hojoki .. for additional functuonality... I've sorted all my collected pdfs into Evernote now, for future read on my Galaxy, and since I am premium, I can do this even offline. Saves me a whole lot of paper, as I really hate reading on my laptop, but wouldn't want to waste my expensive printer cartridge for zillions of pdfs. However, reading on my smarty is really nice. Gosh, I simply love this notetaker.
  4. Hey up, hope you are all well. The last couple of weeks were quite busy for me, so I didn't get around much to watch the VAVS5-webinars. Today I did and I got through quite a few of them. But I noticed, that a couple of the webinars have missing or deleted (?) files, not only partially but a few of them the whole thing, so I cannot watch them. Now, I am not one pointing to the money spent but I reaaaaaaally was looking forward to watch them, as I have missed most of the webinars in March. So I ask, could you kindly get those files and the videos on the site back please? I don't want to miss out on them and the period of Gold membership is not too long. Please please, pretty please! :-) Have a great day, Andrea
  5. I must admit, I am still checking out other programs too. Now that I have a few clients with more than 1 invoice/month paymo started to cost. So if I have to pay anyway I want to have something more powerful. I currently look into Xero.com and Freeagent.com. Both integrate with my banking, once can do their CRM in there, they support several apps to track time, cashflow, CRM (capsule), and you can give access to your accountants (not sure yet, if to clients as well). Freeagent works even with my Tax-Organisation (HMRC in the UK). Both have versions for UK and International (Xero only for the English-speaking Internationals USA, NZ, AUS - not sure if CA). In regards to "handing over login-details": have you ever tried LastPass? I use this with my clients. They simply share with me their login without revealing details.
  6. Hey there, hope you are all well and buzzing :-) I've recently joined a local start up group. We are all absolute newbies to owning a business and decided to help each other out as we are all broke. So for our next meeting we've planned to write press releases. Having great troubles to write a nice copy for my own website, although I have been a writer for magazines years ago, it felt odd to get this on paper (yes, paper, it connects the best with my brain somehow *lol*). I would be grateful for some advise if anything needs correction (my grammar, sentence structures, spelling?) or improvement on the content. I hope to send this PR out in April, on my designated proper start up date.
  7. I've kinda gave up on VAjots. Now and then I try - but noone is ever there. I've tried various times and stayed on for quite a while and it was always empty. :-( Have they been cancelled for good?
  8. I've just started to use Paymo, which syncs with Google docs, FB, Basecamp, KashFlow, Xero and QuickBooks. The use by only one person of a company is free, with infinity projects and clients. If one needs to set it up for employees too, it starts to cost. Own logo, timetracker software over various browsers and devices, project management, milestones, estimates and invoices, timesheet, exportable to pdf too. I'd like, if clients could access my milestones or even timesheets but maybe not, to avoid nitpicking. Have to think about this now :-) Dana, you said, you are doing it by hand. Could you please share, what you are missing on those programs? I am still at the beginning and I wonder, what I miss or haven't thought to implement yet in my systems. Til now I've written a quote/estimate, which includes my 3 pages terms & conditions with the request to accept in writing (email), to accept it as a binding contract. Then I set up a timesheet, which includes the various types of work done (translation, charged per word), calls (to whom, time used, plus charges by provider if call goes to another country), admin tasks (time used)), and then eventually the invoice plus timesheet plus copy of itemised phone bill. I haven't set up a spreadsheet yet to track the invoices, but sending out my 3rd invoice soon, it is on my to-do-list and that's why I've turned to a program to see, if it eases the process. Advise more than welcome. As I said, very new to all and I am no bookkeeper, so I have not the faintest clue about those things.
  9. Yes, figured after a while how to register. Ehm, 11pm was the wrong time. Not sure if it was because of daylight savings or for any other reason, but I've been in the webinar place since 11pm and it turned out the start was at midnight. Sadly I cannot take part next week due to no internet (I am moving house), but as soon I've got my new internet I will try again with the wintertime in place and then I will report here what happened.
  10. Just wanted to say that the times are totally un-understandable for not US-citizen. I know I have to convert them to my timezone, which would be fairly straight forward if there would be some consistency in the times you are mentioning. On the website it says "4pm PDT", followed by link which is set to Vancouver. When I convert it to London-Time it gives me 11pm London I then noticed it is set to Vancouver and tried it as written with 4pm PDT, which gives me 00:00 London-Time. Then I've checked with the forums here and get: PDT/PST/EST ... which results anywhen between 00:00 and 01:00 London-Time. It is also very hard to understand for a newbie, that you have to register for the advertised webinar first. It was only after a couple of times trying and getting a "wrong password"-error, that I figured that out. I don't want to be over-fussy, just want to point out, that it is material for confusion and I have now no idea when the VAjot will be happening. Life is not getting simpler as we have end of daylight saving coming up in the UK this weekend. Could anyone please clarify? Thank you.
