Succeed as a Chief Virtual Officer (a.k.a. Virtual Assistant) 3-Hour Workshop in Sacramento

Virtual assistants are busy helping their clients build and grow their businesses but don’t always put into place those same systems to grow their virtual assistant business. This 3-hour workshop is designed to help you grow your business. It’s not skills training but business coaching. Sue and Joel D Canfield share more than 50 years of experience working with small businesses. They love teaching others how they can have the deep satisfaction they get from their work and the life it allows them.

Special Note

This is an information packed workshop. We’re aware that you can’t possibly absorb it all in a single sitting. That’s why the cost of the workshop includes a 2-CD set containing 5 hours of audio and over 50 pages of reference materials and notes for you to review at your own pace as often as you like.

Take Control Back of Your Notifications

Are you receiving notifications of everything little thing that happens at Facebook? Do you find yourself overwhelmed with emails notifying you of new friends, group requests, and other notifications from Facebook? It’s time to take control back!

Go to Facebook when it’s convenient for you and do all your catching up at once. Go to your account and change your account setting notifications so that you are not emailed every single time some little thing happens at Facebook.

I just did this and what a difference it made. Now I am not overwhelmed and distracted with all those notifications. I can go in to my account at my convenience and catch up with everything at once – saving me time.

This tip was just one of several great organizing tips I heard on a CD created by three Professional Organizers in the Sacramento are – Kelli Wilson, Christine Giri and Natalie Conrad. This particular tip was provided by Christine Giri. I strongly recommend visiting their websites and signing up for their newsletters to receive other great time-saving tips. Thank you ladies!

Please share your tips on how you manage your social media.
