We’ve got some cool stuff going on this month – freebies, training, collaboration… Keep your eyes peeled!
And this week is the launch of the UK VA Survey for 2013 – get yours in now!
Each year we take a snapshot of the UK’s VA industry and ask you to fill in this survey – in order to make it statistically valid, we need 10% of the industry to fill it in… Which doesn’t sound like a lot until you consider that we have a lot of people on our database who aren’t active VAs – newbies, those who have retired, someone who has maybe forgotten they’ve subscribed! Please do take 15 minutes to fill this in – and in return we’ll send you a free summary report when it’s published. CLICK HERE TO TAKE PART.
This is going on my recommended reading list for all female business owners – I was really that impressed with it. Sheryl Sandberg COO of Facebook kept on getting asked how she got to those dizzy heights “…as a woman” – she’s researched the problem of women in the workplace extensively – with some surprising results!
In fact I’m so impressed by this, there’s a chance to win it! Winners must be UK based and will be drawn at random on 30th November 2013.
We’re running a little 30 day marketing session based around Get Clients Now (if you haven;t got this book, Get The Book Now!!). Places are strictly limited to 12 people and we’ll be running the sessions online/via phone conference (Thursday evenings 7pm-8pm) – one session each week. You will need a copy of the book to take part.
There’s no fee, as we aren’t using a trainer to run these sessions – just peer to peer support! SIGN UP HERE
We’re putting together a Christmas competition to give one UK VA a very merry Christmas… If you have a goodie you would like to donate, please get in touch. In return, we’ll give you a mention and link back to your site.
