Forum on Virtual Assistance – I’m Going, Are You?

Forum on Virtual Assistance [ 5:17 ] Play Now | Play in Popup | Download I am attending and speaking at a a conference being held in Canada, May 2-4th.  This is a great opportunity as a Virtual Assistant to network and learn from each other.  Many will be attending from North American and I’m expecting it to be not only a learning experience but a fun one too! So, if you ever wanted to visit Canada, here’s your excuse! Plus it would be fun to meet some of you too!! What have you done for your business lately? If you are a Virtual Assistant or are in the process of starting your VA practice, attending FoVA will provide you with tools to take your career to the next level. The FORUM on VIRTUAL ASSISTANCE being held May 2 – 4, 2008 in Toronto Canada is a “coming together” of top North American Virtual Assistants. FoVA is a unique opportunity to share and learn crucial information about the VA industry as a whole, as well as the day to day challenges of our individual practices. FoVA is NOT a conference! It is a Forum where experts and up and coming VAs meet face to face in a stimulating and exciting exchange of knowledge and ideas. It is a venue where solutions and action plans are created to move your business forward. You ARE your business so invest in your company and yourself!! Find out about FoVA at www.forumonvirtualassistance.com and take advantage of Early Bird Savings before December 31st!! Hope to see you all...
