Hello VA Community, A little background before leading to my question. On Monday I received a LinkedIn connection request from a Founder & Editor of The Startup Growth. He conveyed he bumped into me on accident and noted I had an impressive profile. Also, always looking to connect and network with other smart, influential leaders and was looking forward to learning more about what I do. So, naturally, I accepted the connection and indicated I was looking forward to sharing the knowledge, building camaraderie and engaging with him and others who share my enthusiasm. He responded back on Friday with the following: I wanted to know if you are interested in being interviewed about your experience as an entrepreneur? The blog is located here: https://medium.com/the-startup-growth The blog will give you a chance to tell your story and gain exposure through my social networks. We have a series called, Pop Quiz, Monday. The Pop Quiz, Monday is a fun feature that we have on our blog that provides entrepreneurial advice by answering seven questions. You will be able to plug your website and social media networks. We have over 12,000 views per month on our blog. Let me know if you are interested. I reviewed the questions, and part of me would like to proceed, it would be great exposure but then due to launching my career this year back in February PT working on two contracts and recently going FT, should I hold off until I have more time under me sort-of-speak? Looking forward to your feedback, Angela
Hi my name is Jill Hurley and I am the owner of Essentially Jill. We opened our doors in July of 2014, but I have been working as a professional Executive and Administrative Assistant for the last 20 years. My expertise is in website and social media management, but I also work for several clients doing online research, bookkeeping, and so much more. I specialize in assisting businesses that are just starting out. If you or your friend is taking the plunge to step out and become an entrepreneur, then I can come along side and champion you along in the process. I can help take care of things that will help create an immediate legitimacy for your brand. It is incredibly easy in today's world to have business cards, websites, stationary, embroidered shirts, car magnets, and so much more. I love to strategize and consult in the process as you dream starting a new business. I work out of Lubbock's Premier Co-Working space, Tumbleco, located at 2407 20th St. This gives me turn-key access to board rooms and meeting spaces where I can bring clients as they plan their building. If you are brand new and just starting out or if you have been established for many years, I would love to join your team. I look forward to hearing from you soon. You can reach me at 806-831-2919.
Hello Everybody, What a Community! So glad to be here. My name is Ray Cobel. I've been doing business virtually for over ten years, and have been an Entrepreneur for over 20 years. Prior to that I worked for 20 years as an employee, at an executive level, with extensive experience in: marketing, sales, planning, recruiting, training, writing and management; in a variety of industries. If you want more specifics you can see them at: http://www.linkedin.com/in/raycobel. Pretty impressive huh, for a guy who's still only 39. . .just kidding (about the age). Doing business virtually fascinates the heck out of me; especially now that free technology has proliferated and advanced so much. Huge logistical and financial barriers have fallen making it feasible for the masses to join in. Still, doing business means being able to attract, start, build and maintain RELATIONSHIPS. I've found that in spite of all the technological advancements, the elements of the natural human relationship building process haven't changed much at all. Virtual business success still depends on your ability to effectively engage in the relationship process, without actually being there. The good news is that it's most definitely do-able, and learnable. Just don't make the same marketing mistake that this guy does. When I first went virtual I focused on the real estate industry. I became an expert at a cloud based application called TopProducer. This, combined with my marketing/sales/technology knowledge and experience, enabled me to effectively do business with well over 100 virtual clients, located throughout the U.S. I believe that the long-term trend in work is toward Entrepreneuring, and doing business virtually; computerization, automation, outsourcing, globalization and ever accelerating change are driving it. . .hard. People in this VA Community are smart to be getting ahead of the curve. About two years ago I reached a point in my life where I wanted to share what I've learned throughout my career, in a way that would be especially helpful to Entry Level Entrepreneurs who want to do business virtually. It has taken me all of the last two years to put my concept together (online, of course), and I believe you're going find it to be quite valuable. You'll find comprehensive, free, Introductory Entrepreneur Training there to get you started. Check it out it at: http://DesignYourOwnJob.net. I'm very thankful that this Community exists, and I'm looking forward to participating in it with you, and getting to know you personally. Sincerely, Ray Cobel
