My Virtual Assistant is excited, delighted and proud to announce the launch of a brand spanking new logo!
Same colours, delicious new design! :)
Dear old Logo,
You have been wonderful to me over the last six and a half years. You've been there for me right from the start and I truly appreciate all the loyalty and support you have given me over the years.
We've had some really great times together, some good laughs, really fun moments and lots of shared memories. But something’s missing. We both know it. Our time together is coming to an end and I know you understand. There are only a couple of days left before we go our separate ways. I have been procrastinating for a long while and putting it off for as long as I can, however, things just aren’t the same as they used to be.
I admire you for the sense of confidence and self esteem you have given me. You were there for me as I grew and we took on the world together. Thank you for sharing this journey with me
I hope we can still be friends. I will never forget you and you will always hold a special place in my heart.
Had a fabulous time at The Cath Vincent Show Season 2 Launch Concert, held at The Tuning Fork, on Saturday night, 2 May 2015.
An awesome night of music and entertainment, plus we got a sneak preview of the upcoming series.
Lots of special guests (My Virtual Assistant was one!) attended the evening and the music line-up showcased some hugely talented, up-and-coming New Zealand singer/songwriters, including Sam RB, Jasper Hawkings, Veronica Grace and the ever-popular Wilde & Rich.
On the other hand, those websites which are mobile-friendly can expect a significant boost in mobile search engine rankings and site traffic, which could potentially mean more sales.
My Virtual Assistant creates affordable template websites, all of which are mobile-friendly. :)
Oh my goodness! My Virtual Assistant was interviewed on The Cath Vincent Show today!
Filming for Season 2 of The Cath Vincent Show started on Monday 23 March, with energetic host and award winning international speaker, Cath Vincent, bringing you an exciting lineup of guests to energise and inspire you.

Health, wealth, fulfilment and fun will be coupled with a business focus that draws on the expertise of inspirational and successful people.
The Cath Vincent Show is back on air at the beginning of May 2015 (FaceTV, Sky channel 83) or you can view episodes online on the website or on YouTube - be sure to watch the show and look out for your favourite Virtual Assistant!
I've been in a networking group for around six years; since I first started working for myself, and I have found it an invaluable way to generate business and learn about other people's businesses. It's a lovely 'safe' and supportive environment in which you can share tips, advice, struggles and successes with a fantastic group of like-minded business people. I highly recommend it for start-up business owners and for people who are old hats at running a business.
I admit that I still get butterflies when I have to stand up at each meeting and promote myself and what I do, but when it comes to running a business, I have always been a believer of stepping out of my comfort zone and trying new things. After all, as the saying goes... if it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger!
This morning I ran my local networking group meeting; I was the Facilitator for the very first time. To say I was nervous is an understatement! The very thought of trying to control 20 extremely confident and enthusiastic meeting members was something I was not really looking forward to!
As the meeting started, twenty pairs of eyes were upon me, ears were listening, ready and waiting to hear what I had to say. Deep inside I was wondering how I'd managed to get myself into this situation. I took a deep breath, words came out of my mouth and the meeting kicked off.
One hour later the meeting was over. A couple of people even came up to me and said I had done a wonderful job. Apparently I appeared confident and in control. If only they knew!
I read somewhere that people who appear confident tend to enjoy greater success, because others see self-assured individuals as more trustworthy. If you exude low self-confidence, or a lack of self-belief, others may assume that you’re incompetent, untrustworthy or unreliable.
Preparation and a good understanding of what you are saying is vital when speaking in public, whether it's when you're up there in front of an audience or when you're running a meeting.
After the meeting, as I drove back to my office, I reflected on the past hour. I remembered to sit up straight, breathe deeply, speak clearly and a little bit slower than I normally do. I made eye contact with others around the room and listened carefully when other people were speaking. Oh and I provided Hershey's kisses for everyone, because chocolate bribes are a must!
One meeting down, 12 more to go...
