  1. Hi All, I just wanted to chime in real quick here. First of all, I'm a South Jersey resident all the way down here in Vineland (live a few minutes away from Jerri). I would love go join up for a get together or lunch of some sort. I can go up as far as Trenton without a problem. Like Jerri I also have a toddler, and a very busy VA business, so weekdays are really hard for me to meet up. I can do weekends much better. I know you were talking about doing a weekday coming up here, so if I can't make this one I can do a future time on a weekend. @Jerri, you and I can carpool since we live so close to one another. The other reason I wanted to chime in is that I happen to be a member of DVVAA and one of the board of directors. I just wanted to say that we'd love to have you join DVVAA. Most of out membership hails from the Delaware Valley surrounding Philadelphia, but we have members from all over Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. And as far as or luncheons go, we like to move around our quarterly luncheon locations to places north, south, east, and west of Philadelphia and sometimes Center City. Our most recent one happened to be up in Priceton NJ, and our next one in December will be held in Philadelphia. We also invite members if they wish to host luncheons near their location outside of the quarterly ones. We love any excuse to get together with one another and talk shop (or not) over lunch. Outside of the networking luncheons, DVVAA has additional benefits including monthly webinars, a listserv, and RFPs. We will be electing a new board shortly, so that may be bringing new ideas for member events and building resources. It is an awesome opportunity to regularly network with and support VAs that are right in your area and DVVA is a great organization for that. DVVAA is a fabulous group of people and I have been honored to belong and serve on it's board. And if you go to a VA event like the IVVAA Summit, you will see that everyone wants to be us. *LOL* (or at least they all want our cool DVVAA bling t-shirts) Feel free to contact me if you want any additional info about DVVAA. I really hope you all consider joining!
  2. Hey ladies! I think Cherry Hill is a great central point for many of us VAs spread over NJ and the Philly area. I would be down for a meetup or a lunch there. I'm in that area quite often.
  3. Here's my late arrival to this thread (man, I need to catch up with VANA more often), but I'll be at the summit in Pheonix!! I am so excited that I'll be able to make it this time... And looking forward to a little break. I'm really looking forward to seeing some of my far away VA friends again, and meeting a lot more of them for the first time. This will be my 2nd Summit. My first one was in Charlotte, and I had an amazing time. I learned so much great information from that one and came back with this motivational fire with so many new ideas. I still connect and talk to many of the VAs I met there. I was really sad that I had to miss Montreal last year, but it was too close to my baby's arrival. But I made sure I could come this time. And Sherra hit it on the head about how you never know who you will meet that will need the skills you have. A few VAs there, including me, will be on the lookout for potential team members. So do your best to stand out and make a good impression, but don't be pushy.
  4. Was there a get together in the Hamilton Mall area recently? If not, I would be up for doing one. I'm a member of the DVVAAs and we have great networking luncheones every now and then, but I am always up for meeting other VAs for other occasions. And I know a couple new and prospective VAs in the area that would like to meet up. I'm way down here in Vineland, but I'm can be in the Hamilton Mall area easily since my hubby works in Egg Harbor Twp, and I sometimes visit him for lunch. So if someone's interested, we can set up a date. Catch me here, or zip me a message.
  5. Thanks Deb. I tried all that yesterday, and to no avail. Still having the same issue. Upon searching around the net, apparently I am not the only one having the issue. Intuit support is less than helpful. Oh, and I notice that is also freezes up after reconciliation too. Great! Within Intuit's community boards, it looks like this all may have to do with the fact that I have 64bit Vista. How wonderful is that? Sure would have been nice to know when I purchased my sytem that QB Pro 2008 would not be compatible with Vista 64. Now how am I going to ge a fix to this? I feel like repeatedly banging my head against my desk.
  6. Ok, I deleted the QB PDF Converter. Restarted my whole system, restarted quickbooks. When I went to go email a report, I'm facing the same problem. QB just sits there and freezes up. So then I look back in my printer folder and see that the QB pdf converter did reinstall itself, and now it has made itself my default printer. (Huh?) And I see that the document is sitting there in queue in the QB pdf converter and I can't seem to cancel it, delete it, nothing. It won't respond now. This is ridiculous. For pete's sake, all I want to do is email my clients their invoices so I can get paid. I think I will be downloading one of those suggested pdf converters.
  7. Ok, I just got a new laptop with Vista and Quickbooks Pro 2008. I have everything migrated from my old QB on my old pc, my accounts are all set up correctly, everything looks fine. My problem is when I go to print or save an invoice as a pdf. Quickbooks just complete freezes up on me and I have to close it down. And this happens when I try to print or save ANYTHING in QB as a pdf. For the printer options for pdf's it gives me Adobe PDF, which works normally for any other program, but not QB. Anyone know what gives?
  8. I just found out about this today and thought it might be interesting to other VAs because after all, we are small business owners. Microsoft is hosting a free 2008 Small Business Summit coming up March 24-27. Some of the program topics look interesting to me, like the productivity and financial (I can always use more advice). And hey it's free, so it might be worth checking out. You can find more info here: https://www.sbsummit.com/
  9. Hey, I'm "way down" in Cumberland County myself, but I could easily come up to Marlton for a get together. My in-laws live near there so I'm up that way quite a bit on weekends. Or if you Ocean County gals want to come down to Atlantic County and meet up somewhere in the Egg Harbor Township or the AC area I am good with that too!
  10. I'm going to the Summit too! This will be my first one as well and I am so very excited. In other organizations I belong to, everyone has been telling me I that I can't afford NOT to go. So I did it. I registered last week, and booked my room and now I just need to decide how I'm getting there (and if I'm taking my vacation right after). I cannot wait to meet and network with many of you that I've followed and admired here at VANA and around the VA world!
  11. Hi Sue! Glad to see you here. Anyone want to try and do a get together in the South Jersey area in some central location?
  12. This is fantastic! I was thinking a few weeks ago about how our unique industry should be a story on Oprah as it is a great subject for her target market. But I had no idea what it takes to really get the attention of the Oprah show. Way to aim high! You're totally going to do this. I'm carefully crafting my questionnaire response to help you out right now.
  13. Congratulations Dy! It was the first one I read. Way to go!
  14. Congratulations Angela! I know you are going to be a fabulous VA! Best Wishes!
  15. Hi there! I'm another VA that happens to be a resident of New Jersey and thought I'd drop in and say hi. I'm in South Jersey in Vineland. I haven't been here long, only a couple months now. If we get any networking events together, I'd be all for it. I also belong to the Delaware Valley Virtual Assistants Association and they occasionally have NJ networking events, but I haven't been able to make one yet.
