I seem to have spent most of January and early February being ill with various nursery bugs… Am planning on dunking bambino through sheepdip as he comes through the front door!!!
But despite illness, I’ve finished off compiling the last of the SVA UK VA Survey… And we have some interesting results – for example: our Mummy Myth remains totally shattered – only 3-4% of VAs with young children don’t have childcare in place. And I FINALLY got the answer on whether working part-time affects your income as a VA!
Help SVA – Webinar specialists…
One of the more delightful facets of running SVA is my neverending quest for favours… And yes, I’m looking for another! Do you run webinars or online conferences? We’re looking for a techie person to help us with The Big Meet in September. We’re looking for software recommendations and also someone to help me when I press the wrong button (which I do frequently, as Lyndsey batters me over the head with her mouse!). If brave enough, we promise chocolate, cake and all costs covered! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer
It’s here! Find out everything you need to know about the VA industry in the UK!!!
If you took part, you’ll have the free summary report by now (if not please let me know!), but if you didn’t take part or you want the full results, you can download for the bargain price of £25:
10 Years in Business? Tell everyone!
Next year I’ll have been in business 10 years, but I’m aware there are some industry veterans out there who’ve already hit that milestone… We’d like to acknowledge that with our new badge! You can use it on your website, in a newsletter and we’ll upgrade your forum avatar to include it too… All you need to do is tell us when you started trading, your SVA username and your email address: Fill in your details here.
If you have an event you’d like listed on http://www.societyofvirtualassistants.co.uk/events-the-virtual-assistant-diary just let me know! It’s free and we’re happy to list anything which will help VAs in their businesses.
This month: Central London VAs are inviting you along to their 1st Tuesday meetings, The VA Success Group is running a teleseminar on 28th Feb on marketing and SVA invites you along to a free online networking on Sat 23rd Feb @ 10am….
