Hi Leanna,

I'm not to sure how to use this "thread".

I am contractual. Its good to know what I am doing is actually being a VA.

Thank you Tess for your "cheers." I have been reading and reading everything here. I am sorting it through and trying to get some ideas on how to get my platform started. There is a lot to do before I start marketing myself. I do look forward to the challenge.

My best advice is to read, read, and read some more Starting with a section of the forums that you find most intriguing and then branching out from there - chipping in with your own comments and questions as you go.

Interacting with other VAs will be a great support, not to mention all the info and experience the membership has to share!

I agree with Tess - read as much as you can. I've been a member of this community 2 months and I'm still reading a fair bit. We always learn something helpful everyday

Welcome aboard, we are so thrilled to have you part of our community!
Thank you for the encouragment. I look forward getting to know everyone in this community.

Be sure to post questions as you read through everything.

See you around.
Delady,

I have already found valuable information just in these threads and looking at all of the individual websites. Its a bit overwhelming, but exciting too.

Deirdre,

My boss did put on a smirky smile when I told him that he is my first client.

Anyways, Welcome! I'm new too, but the 'Sarasota Florida' caught my eye. I lived there on and off for many years
Hi Lisa,

Yes, they did finish those renovations at the Mall. I live right across 41 from the Mall on Vamo. I'm sure you are familiar with that road. (Bieneva/Vamo). I hope I can stay away from these beautiful beaches long enough while I get started on my new venture.

Weren't you bummed when they closed down that Albertson's there on 41?

Hi Lisa,

I just moved into my home on Feb 14, 2008. Funny thing about Albertsons. I invited my family over for Easter Sunday dinner and when I went to get the meat ready to cook, I didn't like the color of it. So I sent my husband to Albertsons, to get a Ham. He calls me from his cell phone and said that it is "closed." On no, I said. Thank god, there is more than one Albertsons in the area. I got my Ham and saved Easter dinner. My sister lives over where you lived, on Dunmore. It is a small world.
