Just like we realize Virtual Assistants (and the world population in general) come in different shapes and sizes—short, tall, round, not-so-round, small, big—so, too, we recognize Virtual Assistants everywhere can be at different stages or levels with their businesses.
In view of these expected business disparities, this year the OIVAC has set up a “building blocks” (or “Track”) system to help you move your business forward.
For instance, continuing the “building” theme, if you’re a “brand new” VA, like—
- you’re still in the “thinking stages”, or
- you already have a web site, or
- you have been doing some work for clients; or
- you’re someone who’s been working in or on your “foundation” for say 1-3 years–
then check out our: Track 1, “New VA Business Startup, Virtual Assistance Basics” offering.
On the other hand, as a Virtual Assistant you’ve been a VA for a while,
- your “footings and foundation” are already dug and the concrete poured;
- you’ve finished your “framing” and put up the walls and roof;
- you’re doors are open and are ready to add new rooms, amenities and enhancements .
If that is you, you’ll want to be in line to get a front row seat in our Track 2, “Taking Your Business to the Next Level” for Seasoned VAs.
Since no well-rounded education of a VA (no matter what his or her level of expertise) can be done with one or two single topics or tracks, we at the OIVAC have planned to help you to expand your “building model” for your business with a Social Media Track and a Technology Track, as well.
Further, although we have specified that the main Tracks are for the “newbie” and the “advanced/seasoned” VA, all attendees are welcome to sit in on any track they choose.
By popular demand, we’re also bringing back the Ask the Seasoned VAs Panels, as well as the Introduction to the VA Industry; the UK , Aussie and African VAs sessions.
Moreover, we continue to present ALL OIVAC sessions exclusively on the Internet, as “live” events. This means you can participate from a location that’s most convenient for you, whether that’s in your office, your home, your car, in the park or some underground tunnel; it’s anywhere you might put your laptop, set up your desktop computer, your mobile phone, or other hearing or seeing device.
It is our belief that as an attendee of the OIVAC’s 8th Annual International Virtual Assistants Convention, you’ll leave the Convention with all the tools you need to set up and/or to continue to grow your business. If you are unable to attend the “Live” sessions, recordings will be available for paid attendees who choose this option, AFTER the Convention.
If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It
Continuing a two-year “tradition”, the OIVAC is again offering our extremely successful, break out “make it and take it” sessions; they’re highly sought after “hard core” training events presented by various training and technology companies that were introduced to critical acclaim two years ago.
In case you’ve forgotten, in the “make it and take it” sessions, you’re actually “doing” in the session (no sit back with your feet up, mind wandering for you) so when the time’s up on the session, you’ll leave with your increased knowledge, very own working project/product that you can immediately use in your business.
Building Your Business with an OIVAC Foundation
It’s been proven that an online convention such as this is the latest in convenience and costs-savings. Attendees share easy access with minimal drain on the budget and have no travel/airport expenses. Nor are you faced with the hassle from the “airport feelers”. And since you have no hotel bills or other hidden expenses, you “arrive at” and leave the convention in a relaxed frame of mind. You’ll also not be faced with other travel worries like whether a gas station will be open when you’re ready to get out of town or when you’ll be able to find the next pit stop.
It’s really quite simple, really… in a setting such as ours you’ll be able to interact with the “movers and shakers”; the “been there done thats” of the VA industry and their entrepreneurial counterparts for all (or parts of) three days. So make it a point soon to claim access to our presenters and the information they’re ready to share with you.
We’re looking forward to watching you build your business from start to ongoing with our multitude assortment of tools and building blocks.
