Put A Custom List of Appointments on Your Google Calendar In One Swoop!

  My son attended an app camp this summer at a local high school. Each day they made a simple app and by the end of the week they learned to code something a bit more complex. He wanted his bigger project to have a sports theme, and I personally thought an app to put a […]

10 Things An Infusionsoft Virtual Assistant Can Do For You

While I personally think that every Infusionsoft customer should know at least a little bit about the software, I also think that most – if not all – Infusionsoft customers could use the support of a Virtual Assistant to take care of the very import, albeit ticky-tack, things that need to get done in the […]

In Business: Tips for getting it all done

I originally wrote this article last week for my weekly newsletter.

In Business: Do You Have Disney-Confidence?

As business owners, we all need what I call Disney-confidence. Have you priced a trip to DisneyWorld lately? It’s pricey. Really pricey.

In Business: Say Thank You

Virtual Assistance is very much a service based industry. Supporting business owners is a VA’s bread and butter.
