We’ve had some interesting approaches over the last few weeks – The Sunday times Magazine wanted to speak to us about The Mummy Myth article I wrote; there have been a fair number of people approaching us about offering training or resources to VAs… The word is out there that we have great influence with our clients!

You guys asked for more help with creating new services to grow your VA business, we’ve teamed up with Ginny Carter of Marketingtwentyone to offer a free webinar W/C 7th Oct – sign up for more info below…Should be a good one!
