  1. Hi Susan, Thank you ... yea our health is important, I've learned a few things in the process. I sure hope this "dry spell" ends soon, for you as well. ** Kindly, Shonna
  2. Hi Everyone! Well, I decided to join VA Networking because a few other of my contacts recommended it to me. I'm really hoping to learn more about the VA world, connect with other VAs, receive support, and I would love to find new clients to work with. I am really excited to be here! Here is a little bit of info about my journey: I made a career change back in 2010, as I really wanted to pursue working from home, so I started with taking an online web design course. While doing this, I started looking for small projects to get myself going. In 2012, I realized small and short term projects weren't the best way to go, and I also wanted to make my business more official. I came up with my business name (Heart & Soul Virtual) and began looking for a few long term clients. I did make some connections, so I feel very fortunate for the experiences I've gained. While I was getting my business going, I was also a Mom full time and growing our family. Now, my husband and I have 4 children (all girls), ranging from 17 years (I adopted my oldest) to 3 years. I love being a Mom and I also love being a business owner. I feel grateful and privileged that I can work from home while working with my husband to raise our family. It's not always easy, but I wouldn't it trade it for anything. I love to network, meet new people, love to help others (for business and personal by being a good friend), and when I can put a smile on their face, it's a great feeling. Unfortunately back at the beginning of this year, I had to step away from my business, so that I could deal with some personal health issues. When I came back to start looking for new clients to get going with work again, I started running into some bad luck, and it seems to continue to follow me. It's reminded me of how competitve it is in the VA world! I have a lot to offer my clients but it's been a challenge to find the right connections again. I would love to invest in the VA Insiders here so that I can access to more resources, but it is not within my budget to do that right now. So my search for new long term clients continues. They say "perseverance pays off", and it did for me before, so I'm diligently "knocking on doors" for the next opportunity. Since taking my web design course and an advanced course, I have also expanded my skills into VA work including ... data entry (excel and updating online database websites), web design and maintenance (Dreamweaver, WordPress and Joomla), email and project management (coordinating projects for clients, recruiting new clients, etc), social media work (setting up and creating accounts, posting on FB), and web research (for telesummits). I love and am always looking to learn new programs and expand my skillset. If you would like to connect, that would be awesome! Please connect with me via Skype (ID is shonna.hirney) or email me at handsvirtual@gmail.com. Thank you and I look forward to connecting with you soon. ** Kindly, Shonna Shonna Hirney Heart & Soul Virtual
  3. Hi Everyone! I am not sure if this discussion is still open, so hopefully my post is included and read by others. I decided to give VA Networking a try to help my business, as I recently connected with other VA business owners, who recommended it. I have been a VA for several years now, and feel very fortunate for the experienced I've gained from my previous clients. Unfortunately I had to step away from my business, beginnng of this year, to deal with some personal health issues which were unrelated to my businesss. When I came back to seek out new clients, I started running into some bad luck, and it continues to follow me. I have a lot to offer my clients but it's been a struggle to find the right connections. I would love to invest in the VA Insiders here so that I can access to more resources, but it is not within my budget to do that right now. I can appreciate Amanda and Traci, your negative experiences with unreliable VAs in the past. I have heard other clients share similar stories and it's unfortunate that some VAs do this. I agree with the ladies on here that are VAs, there is definitely frustratation on both sides. Maybe great VAs are few and far between, but we are out there, among the ones that are different. Right now, I am definitely looking for new clients that want a long term business relationship. My background is web design / maintenance, but I have expanded my skills into VA work. If anyone is interested, I would love to have a further private conversation with you. Please connect with me via Skype (ID is shonna.hirney) or email me at handsvirtual@gmail.com. Thank you for reading this. Shonna Shonna Hirney Heart & Soul Virtual
