Thomas Leonard International Virtual Assistant of Distinction

Tom Leonard is credited with being the person who used the term virtual assistant as describing the person he worked with virtually (who just happens to have been Stacy Brice of Assist U). He is also the one who initially popularized it. He is the founder of Coach University , Coachville, the International Coach Federation, the International Association of Coaches and passed away in 2003.

This award is to honor a Virtual Assistant who has been in business for at least 5 years and who has contributed to the industry in such a way that it has provided a positive impact on many others and helped them to build a successful business. If they have headed up a VA organization or activity; written a book or other publication specifically to help other VAs;  been a mentor to fellow VAs; or in an impacting way that has helped the industry grow, we want to know.

Our only pre-requisite is that the nominee must have been in business at least 5 years and must have done something to impact the industry in a positive way.

Janet Jordan Achievement Award

Janet Jordan was a recognized industry leader in the virtual assistance field. Mrs. Jordan’s virtual assisting career began in 1980, long before the term “Virtual Assistant” was coined. Along with running her private VA practices which included clients who spanned the globe, Mrs. Jordan also trained aspiring entrepreneurs to launch their own up-to-the-minute, compelling and relevant virtual assistant practices through Virtual Assistance U. Jordan created future leaders in the VA industry. Janet passed away in January 2006.

This award is to honor a newcomer Virtual Assistant who has been in business for less than 5 years and has reached a business milestone. This milestone needs to be an accomplishment that has helped to boost their new business to an overwhelming success.
