A Note From Tawnya



I see the new iPad just came out and I would love to hear feedback from anyone who gets one. I love my iPad2 and iPhone4 but surprisingly don't own a MAC yet (maybe my next techie investment?)


Here's a sweet trick for users of the iPhone2 that I just learned today from a friend who isn't even a geek, go figure! I love learning new things so here is a kewl iPhone tip if you want to send emoticons easily in your text messages.


First you'll have to upgrade to iOS 5.1 with your iPhone. Once you do that then do the following:


1. Go to Settings icon > General > Keyboard

2. Scroll down and click on International Keyboards and then choose "Add New Keyboard"

3. Look for "Emoji" in the list and add it.


Thats it! Now go and text message someone and you'll now see a small globe icon beside the number 123 icon on your text keyboard. When you click on this it gives you all kinds of emoticons you can use in your text messages from happy faces to balloons. Cool feature huh?


Only downfall is that the emoticons will only show up if the person you are texting also has an iPhone. So how do you know if the other person has an iPhone? Easy peasey...if your text message is in a blue bubble when you send it out, then the recipient is using an iPhone. If your text message is in a green bubble then they are probably on a Blackberry or some other type of cell phone and not a member of the iPhone tribe. Too bad so sad for them ;)


Hope you all have a productive week and learn new things to help your business along the way.


Wishing you virtual $UCCESS in 2012,

Tawnya Sutherland




Virtual News You Can Use NOW!



1) The doors are opened and tickets are selling fast to attend our Virtual Assistant Virtuosos Seminars Season 5 (VAVS5) online conference called “From one Virtual Assistant to another…”


If you have attended this event before I’m sure you’ll grab your ticket right now as you know how much you can learn to help you succeed in your VA business from the speakers who have been there and done it already, Virtual Assistants themselves. ;)


REGISTER NOW at http://www.VAvirtuosos.com


If you’ve not attended it yet, just listen to what some of our past attendees have said:


“The amount of information I have received for such a small investment is insane! The notes and tips I took away from the seminars are priceless! If you are a VA it should be a no-brainer to attend this week long event! Don’t miss this event you will potentially lose new opportunities!!” ~ Jaime-Ann Laidlaw


“I can’t wait! I attended last year’s VA Virtuosos and it was one of the most informative series of tele-classes for virtual assistants I’ve ever been part of. I can’t believe it’s such an amazing bargain.” ~ Nina Feldman


DON’T DELAY…THE DOORS ARE OPEN and you can attend all 20 webinars during March 26-30th for ONLY $19. You heard it right! That’s under $1 a webinar to learn new strategies, tips, programs and ideas to help your VA business grow to its fullest potential. We sell out for every VAVS so make sure you grab your seat early.


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


(Lynn Terry will also be there doing Virtual Assistant website reviews to help you learn how to monetize your VA site).



2) Earlier this week my colleague Cindy Greenway launched her brand new FR-EE 3-part video training series called the Virtual Assistant Formula.


These videos contain jam packed content that will help all VAs with building a SOLID VA business. In each video (approximately 30 minutes each) Cindy takes you step-by-step through a variety of topics that, if applied, could mean the difference between a failed, and a highly successful business.


Many of the strategies Cindy shares in this series are the very same ones she used to attract more clients than she could handle within 9 months of starting her business.


Sign up to receive immediate access to this 3-part video training series and get yourself ready to get some kick-butt info.




3) The new timeline for Facebook pages is going to happen on March 30th whether we like it or not.


Facebook Pages are the primary source of business activity in social media. This new set of changes will effect every company that wants to have a Facebook presence, or already has one. After March 30th, old FB Pages will be automatically changed to the new format and if you or your clients are not ready for that, you can end up with obsoleted pages that will lose you leads and sales.


I found this new product for only $27 called the FB Total Timeline. You'll get 20 turnkey timeline page templates, training videos on how to install the new timeline pages, live timeline training webinar, a lead generation letter to tell clients what the problem is (page changes) and how you are going to solve it for them, a timeline for pages cheatsheet and more!


This is the resource you need to get on top of Timeline Pages right now not just for your site but to help your clients sites. Grab your copy now at:





4) Would like to get your message out in front of the Virtual Assistant industry? Look no further than the raved about VAvirtuosos Seminars. With 20 educational webinars for only $19 you'll receive the traffic you need to get the word out about your products and services to Virtual Assistants worldwide. The webinar rooms every Virtual Assistant can’t wait to attend and learn at.


This is our 5th season and our members keep coming back for more!
