Yours Virtually by Tammy L. Lorette Located in Midland, Ontario, Canada http://www.yours-virtually.ca/ https://www.facebook.com/#!/yoursvirtually.bytammy I have been in the VA business for more than 12 years however I went back to the corporate world 10 years ago. I recently started my business back up again and I am in the process of working part time right now until I can work my way into fulltime once again. My hope is to once again remove myself from the corporate world. My speciality has been to work with Real Estate agents however more recently I learned that Life Coaches are in a high demand for VA services. I would like to branch out to this industry and plan to do so gradually. I am currently working with a life coach once a week and I love it!! I highly recommend it to anyone as a form of communication/therapy/counselling and to assist you with any decisions that you may be faced with or even to just touch base on personal or professional issues. My work experience consists of but is not limited to: - online training - meeting and event organization - PowerPoint creation - document/template design - Excel worksheet design - Website design/maintenance - Social Media maintenance On a personal note I live in Midland, Ontario, Canada and have for most of my life. I have never been outside of Canada but my dream would be to travel more. I have 4 beautiful children; my oldest son is 24, twin boys that are 20 and a 19 year old daughter. I have often thought about moving to Alberta but would like to wait until my children are more settled. It may sound silly but I think we all still need each other. I am currently living with my soulmate; his name is Jason and we are lucky to have found each other. I believe that everything happens for a reason and we connected the night and time that we did in a perfect way and this is a love that will last a lifetime! We have been together for 2.5 years and I am hoping that he will propose sooner than later... I will keep you posted on this. My current interests involve being outdoors as much as I possibly can. The winters here last more than 6 months and the 2013/14 winter season was very hard on all of us. We had more snow than we could get rid of and the cold kept us indoors more than we needed to be. I have a huge yard with lots of gardens and though weeding is not my favorite thing to do, I do enjoy being out in the yard. I I first learned about VA Networking when I had my first VA business. I am so happy that I am still able to utilize the services offered and hope to grow my VA business moving forward. Thank you and I hope to hear from you all really soon!! I will be in touch... Yours-Virtually, Tammy

Hey all, I have a friend who is very skilled with graphics and is a gifted writer. She moved from the U.S. to Canada, and is now living there on visas until she qualifies for citizenship. As she is not a legal citizen yet, she cannot work. I've told her about the VA industry. She's extremely intelligent, and I think she would be really good at it, and I know she goes crazy sometimes, not having a job. She is apprehensive though because she moved to Canada for love, and she doesn't want to do anything that would get her kicked out of the country and separated from her fella. I told her I didn't think it would be illegal to start online business, immigrant or not, because she could take it with her anywhere anyway, but I wanted to make sure, and see if maybe I could talk her into it. Can anyone shed light on this? Thanks Y'all! Virtually Yours, Megan Norlin.
