SVA Newsletter: February 2011


NEWSFLASH: Our Moo.com promo has been extended to 15th March – to claim your 10% discount quote “VIRTUALMOO” at checkout.

It’s been a busy month here at SVA – if you’ve been following us on Twitter, you’ll know all about my quest to reach 500 tweets in preparation for Global Virtual Assistant Week on 16th-22nd May.  Put this date in your diary now, there will be loads of events going on, and you don’t want to miss out!  Find out more about the event here.

We also teamed up with Moo.com to give SVA members a 10% discount – you must order before 15th March – they’ve extended our deadline so that you’ve got a bit of time to order.  I’m thrilled with my latest mini cards (see right)

More Start Up Stories…

If you’re starting up, you may well have been following the antics of Mark of Clearwater VA in our Start Up section – he’ll still be popping back to tell us how he’s getting on after he finishes his 8-week run though!

We’re also about to start a run of articles in OS Magazine about moving from employee to VA…  Should be an interesting few issues, so make sure you subscribe.

Quick reminder:

Please don’t post on-site jobs on the forum – I’m generally pretty laid back about moderating it, but these sorts of jobs are not virtual assistant jobs and actually go against the belief that most jobs can be done virtually rather than on-site.  If they truly need someone on-site then they should be employing a temp/employee, not a VA, and paying the relevant fees associated with that.  Any posts relating to on-site work will be deleted from now on.
