1. If you haven't already heard the good news, I auditioned to appear on Dragons Den on CBC television and received my acceptance call from the show's producer this past week to shoot an episode in May. If all goes as I hope, I'll be on the Fall Season.


I am super stoked to say the very least. So super stoked that I want to share my excitement with all of you by offering everyone who attends the VAvirtuosos Seminars (VAVS3) between April 11-15th the opportunity to test drive our highly acclaimed VAinsiders Club too. Here's the details:


I’ve decided that anyone who buys a package for VAVS3 above will also receive a bonus gift as follows:


* Silver: Receive 1 month VAinsiders Club Booster membership

* Gold: Receive 6 month VAinsiders Club Booster membership

* Diamond: Receive 1 year VAinsiders Club Booster membership


REGISTER for VAvirtuosos Seminars (VAVS3) here:




You'll learn valuable information to help your VA business grow faster into the work at home empire you have always dreamed of having by attending the next VA Virtuoso Seminars (VAVS).


I have an exciting workshop series of 15 educational online seminars to benefit all virtual assistants worldwide. These seminars will be presented, over the course of 5 days, by fellow Virtual Assistants who have been there, done that, and want to share all that (and more) with you!


Check out all the topics at: http://www.VAvirtuosos.com


There is something for every VA at our VAVS3! The cost? Less than $2 to attend each seminar.


BONUS: F.R.E.E. VAinsider Club membership for all who join, check out the webpage for more details:

2. LAST CHANCE! Don't forget about the special offer for the Marketing Graphics Kit. Many have already bought this with rave reviews to date! At $9.95, you can't beat this price.


It's a "Marketing Graphics Toolkit" consisting of a bunch of tools and templates to add some visual flair to all your websites, blogs and sales pages. Graphics to sell your product online with like:


- Mini Site Templates

- Premium Headers

- Call to Action Buttons

- 3D eCover Action Scripts

- 3D Web Display Templates

- Layer Styles

- Hand Drawn Arrows and Doodles

- Hand Written Fonts

- Power Point Backgrounds

- Bullets and Checkmarks

- Number Icons

- Guarantee Signs

- Footers

- Price Badges

- PLUS a whole bunch of other stuff (21 modules in all)


AND, you get all the Photoshop source files (.psd) for all the images so you can go in and edit them however you like.


I bet you think this would all cost like $97 or something right? NOT! It's just $9.95!!! How cool is that for a change? ;)


You can go here to the Warrior Forum I belong to and read all about it (plus check out all the testimonials!) It's selling like hotcakes so make sure you get in on it too before the sale ends...





3. I found out this really cool feature for any of your who use Hootsuite for your Twitter and other social media accounts that I just had to share...I sometimes find that I want to reply to more than one follower in a post and found it very time consuming (if not annoying) cutting and pasting all the other followers nicknames into my post. Guess what? You can just click on their pic/image in their tweet and drag it up and into your chat area. VOILA! No more copying and pasting a bunch of twitter names into my tweets. Thanks Hootsuite! If you don't have Hootsuite yet, get up to speed with your social media campaigns and give it a try at:





4. I almost forgot, I'm looking for Virtual Assistants who are VAnetworking Forum members who live in the Greater Toronto area who would be interested in appearing on Dragons Den with me in May. I think it would be a fun opportunity for all involved! I'd like to have a harem of 5-7 VAs to help me push out my pitch to the Dragons. If you are interested, please contact me directly at tawnya@vanetworking.com with your age, business URL, if you work from home or office, if you have kids (ages) and how long you've been in business.
