Society of Virtual Assistants News: November 2013


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!


VA-2013-72dpiEach 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.

Book Review: Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg

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.
