    Right now, I am obsessed with Pentatonix. They are the best group ever! I also like to read, write, and exercise.
  1. If you missed the 11th VAVS conference, then you really missed a treat! In addition to the wonderful roster of speakers, there were lots of little freebies and discounts throughout the week. Being a longtime cheapskate, I began with the Silver membership for $37. But the content was so great, that I upgraded to Gold. I am one of the cheapest people that I know, so if I willingly parted with an extra $77, then it was for good reason. If you are a new VA, or if you are thinking about becoming a VA, then I suggest attending the next conference. Even if you only buy a Silver ticket so that you can participate in the live recordings. It is a great investment. I learned a lot of great lessons this week and am glad that I attended. Check out my full VAVS review here:Twenty Sessions of WOW!: VAVS 11 . cheers, Meghan M.

  2. Hi, guys. So I am taking my time going through the VAC, because I really want to do things right. Some of the best advice for me, has been to keep my skills updated and polished. It is a lot of work, but I know that it will pay off tremendously. One of the areas that I have been working on, is my capability with MS Excel. I searched and searched online for different programs that would meet my needs. I was just going through my trial period with a program that required a fee, until I discovered the best Excel training program of all! The program is called Excelisfun, and it is technically not a "program". It is actually a YouTube channel with over 2,000 videos of Excel tutorials. The presenter is Mike Girvin, a teacher and Excel Guru from Seattle. The material is wonderfully helpful, and I cannot believe that it is free. He even provides practice assignments for each concept! If you are looking to learn Excel, or simply brush up on your skills, then I highly recommend Excelisfun. Click here to go to the channel. Another YouTube channel with great Excel lessons is Ann K. Emery (her channel is named after her). She is a Data Analyst & Visualization specialist, and focuses on how to use Excel for those purposes. She also has an amazing blog, with lots of helpful information. Here is the link: click me. My last tip is a site called GCFLearnFree.org. They have free courses in Excel, along with downloadable exercises. In addition to Excel, they have lessons on many other software applications, including MS Access, Google Docs, etc. They also have a YouTube channel by the same name as their website. These three resources are and have been very helpful to me, and I hope that you guys will find them helpful as well. Always learning, Meghan
