  1. Kathy, you could ask her to make payment with an International Money Order (issued by the main post office in her city) which is usually less costly than an international bank transfer (issued by a bank providing foreign exchange services). She could also send you a money transfer through Western Union if this service is available in Kenya.
  2. Hello Colleen My suggestion is that you time how long it takes you to proofread a full page, then estimate the time for total pages of each book. Let the client know that it is an estimate. I do proofreading and have found that time varies according to the content and grammar level. Success with your project.
  3. Thanks for sharing, Kelly. I checked out the site and plan to sign up to test its effectiveness. Rosaliene Bacchus

  6. Love the logo, Tawnya. Join with others in suggesting pens, note pads, mouse pads, magnets, business card holders, coffee cups. Would like to add lapel pins. I wore a "Virtual Assistant" pin to a networking event. Everyone who spoke with me wanted to know what it meant. Rosaliene
  7. Thank you for your kind offer, Doreen. I will forward my request by email. Rosaliene
  8. Congrats, Patty Thanks for all you do to make our forum tick.
  9. Doreen, your document of one-hour projects is a great idea. I'd be happy to see your list. Is it available to other VAs?
  10. Thanks, Bonnie. Very interesting teleseminar. I had no idea that intuition counselors existed. I need to put my intuition to more use.
  11. So sorry to learn of your loss, Ntoweett. You and your family are in my prayers.
  12. Hi Rebecka Words ending in .......sation is the British form. Words ending in .......zation is the USA form. Former British colonies and Europe use the British form. In am not sure where Canada and Australia, both members of the British Commonwealth, stand on this. Countries that prefer American English, like Brazil, use the American form. As I grew up in a British colony that also had an American presence (there was an American airbase in our country during World War 11), we were exposed to the variations between the two forms of the language. You'd be surprised to discover there are many more differences.
  13. Hi Leisa Love your Home Page! It had me hooked to the end. Great job I also like your business name and tag line.
  14. Hello Shannon Your Press Release is well-written. However, I would suggest that you re-write the last two paragraphs as they sound more like an advertisement. Congrats on taking this step and all the best
  15. Tawnya, congratulations to you and all members of VANA on our 4th anniversary Being a VANA member has not only helped me to start up my business but also provides me with the continual support needed for success. It's great to be here
  16. Hello Frances I used the free online course offered by My Own Business to prepare my business plan. You could use it to prepare your business outline. I wish you success with your application process.

  18. Darrell Taking minutes requires 100 percent attention to discussions during the meeting. Note the person's name together with important point made, in abbreviated form. Not all comments made are noteworthy. Important points to note, together with name of person: 1) Names of all persons present 2) Topics discussed 3) Suggestions or proposals made 4) Disagreements 5) Complaints 6) Decisions made 7) Action to be taken 8) Others, as related to your group Don't forget to mention your own contributions. I usually type up the minutes soon after the meeting when it's still fresh in my memory. All the best at your meeting
