Society of Virtual Assistants – October 2014 newsletter

Hi there,Virtual PA-233

Still looking for some more responses for our annual Virtual Assistant Survey – really important to get a statistically valid sample of the industry, so if you haven’t filled it in, please do so now!!!

NB: Please use Firefox/IE as your browser and make sure your internet cache is cleared if you are experiencing problems with it. TAKE PART HERE

Still not working? If you are still having problems, we do have a paper survey downloadable here which you can scan and return to papersurvey@societyofvirtualassistants.co.uk

Small personal announcement: Baby number 2 due April, so I’ve been a bit under the weather of late – apologies if we haven’t got back to you, please do hassle me if you haven’t heard back on something!  The plan is to take some time off in the spring but SVA will continue as normal with our fabulous team of volunteers.


What have we been up to this month?

IYOTSA: PA Power – How do we show the greater business world the power that can be harnessed by using a VA?

Halloween Horror Stories: When you think of a VA Nightmare, what springs to mind?  This month I grapple with the biggest VA fears! (It’s not so scary, I promise!)
