Hey all ,
To all the new people welcome. and to all the others nice to see you again. I have had some very difficult times in the last 8 months. I have moved to another state, got pregnant, lost baby, became homeless and gave up on my VA biz. But I have picked my self up and dusted myself off and have decided that I want to be a VA and I will be a VA no matter what! So after fighting with both my PC's I am back on the way to success. I have been trying to get started but had no luck! Until Friday week before last. I went to my sons daycare and I over heard the owner saying that she had a small biz and wanted a website. So I butted in and asked what she wanted. She said she had a template but a company here wanted $1000 to do the site. So I told her I would do it for a smaller amount. Since she is the paster's wife at my church I really did not put much thought into what to charge. So I did the site Http://www.visionsandmore.net and went on my merry way. This Friday she called me and said she wanted to have me meet someone. So I went in and a lady that owned a sign store was there and said that she had been told that I am good at Small Biz Consulting. Little did I know that due my pointing out improvements that could be made in the daycare and thier office I had now gained a new title. So I told her I would come next week and see her. Anyway as I was leaving I was handed a check for a large amount of money. When I inquired as to why so much for a website I was told that due to my willingness to help and not badger over money I showed that I was a genuine person and that I should be rewarded! YEAH I ROCK! LOL! Anyway I came home so excited that I spent 6 hours in a chair and decided to give my own site a make over. Http://www.islandva.net now has a new look. I did not use a template of which I am so proud, but I still have some work to do. I am working on a links page and would like all of you to send me a logo, URL and site name so that I may add you to the links page. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thats all for now, Happy Holiday!
