How I Am Improving My Marketing Skills with iPod

In 2012, I bought an iPod classic from Olx.com (then Sulit.com). After attending the How to Become a VA Seminar two weeks before, I decided to look for a second-hand iPod classic so I can put Jim Rohn audios, amazing Christian songs (and other positive songs), and audiobooks (believe me, I could be unstoppable when buying audiobooks, same as the good ol’ physical book).

My iPod classic was an exceptional companion (it still is!) during my employment years until I became a full-time virtual assistant. Since I bought it three years ago, I have added webinar audio versions of the other Jomar Hilario programs, videos, and podcasts. I have also downloaded several Hard to Find Seminars audio files.Read More »

The Secret of Following Up Your Delayed Pay

One of my former clients took a while to pay my services.

This is so powerful that it is almost exceptionally laziness – but I love automation!

I am using Buffer as an auto-posting tool since this year. I am so glad to be a Buffer user because not only it spells AUTOMATION, it also has exceptional articles ready for you to share to your chosen social media platform.

Recently, after much careful thought, I tried another automation tool: IFTTT or If This Then That. According to Wikipedia, IFTTT is a “web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called ‘recipes’, which are triggered based on changes to other web services such as Gmail, Facebook, Instagram, and Craigslist.”Read More »

This is Ann Exceptional VA – Realizing a Simple Dream!

I can not remember the exact time or year, but a few years back, I declared (written or verbal, I’m really not sure) that when I become a virtual assistant, one of the things that I see doing is going to the mall on a non-peak day (Tuesday or a Thursday). And in the mall, I will smile to a few people because all of us are virtual assistants. We are the ones inside the mall because we have time to do it – we just simply can.

Well, God has a way of tweaking dreams – but it happened to me anyway!Read More »
