Hi,

Yes we do. We do not gurantee that it will be used but will accept them and if you don't mind the editor and proofreader critiquing it and sending it back for corrections then please feel free to visit my profile page to find our information for article submissions.

Thank you for considering writing for the ezine

Sincerely,
Andrea

Lily,

I know your article is one of the most sought after information that was needed. Thank you so much for contributing

Wow, well wouldn't it be great to see some of those articles in a text book? How wonderful!

Thank you so much!

Andrea~

Great job again Andrea! I thoroughly enjoyed this issue as well. I enjoy the A Virtual Perception podcasts and it was nice to learn more about Darlene's journey into podcasting. Congrats on winning the contest Cathryn!

I just saw the article lineup for this month and can't wait to read it all. This may be the most exciting issue you've put out so far IMO. Oh, wait, it's only the 2nd one lol

I may have to print this one out to read offline.

Another superb issue - very nice to see it in my inbox, as well as here on VAF.
You've set the bar very, very high for industry publications Andrea [as it should be!]

I did find myself blushing through many of the articles though, as so many of them mention this community GREAT publicity though, to be sure!

ALL of the articles are excellent, but I particularly enjoyed the 'How you feel dictates how you act' piece.

Thank you Stephanie, Tess and Julia! This issue was to me, like Stephanie, a super endeavor to keep the VA industry in the forefront.

Tess you have inspired so many VA's that you will be mentioned quite a bit. I believe over and over again that VAF is one of the best places for VA's to be when they need help, guidence and encouragement. There is no other community like the VAF.

We are all sisters and brothers here and we may bicker, not agree, or even agree and still we can encourage, guide, assist and care about each othere here. The VAF is a family and not just a stop off place. There will always be a special place in my heart for the VAF.

Sincerely,
Andrea

exactly!
I too keep coming back onto VAF for all my VA support. Even though I've joined other forums, this one is THE best [apart from IBW which is for businesswomen] but for VA help etc this one beats all the rest

All I have to say is "Wow". Andrea and the rest of the TVE contributors - what an awesome job! Like Tess said, you Andrea have set the bar REALLY REALLY high for Virtual Entrepreneur ezines and magazines alike. Thank you for all of the hard work you put into the The Virtual Entrepreneur. What a great resource for Virtual Assistants and those looking to work with a Virtual Assistant.

I plan on going back and re-reading the articles over the weekend. Love it!
