The best of plans sometimes have to change. We just found out this morning that our lodging accommodations in Portland, Oregon next week fell through. Due to an unforeseen family need, the wonderful family that were going to let us stay with them in return for our coaching services are unable to do so.
That leaves us without a place to lodge for a night or two. We have lodging in Washington on Saturday, July 31. We’d hoped to arrive late in the day in Portland July 29th and stay that night and July 30th with the family in Portland, leaving their place mid-day Saturday. If necessary, we can drive all day Friday, July 30th, stay a night in Portland and leave Saturday for Washington.
Ideally though we hope to leave Thursday July 29, arrive late in Portland, spend all day Friday July 30th in Portland and leave Saturday.
So if you are a Virtual Assistant and would like to receive our action guide, Building Blocks: Succeed as a Chief Virtual Officer, and one-on-one in-person coaching for your business from two great business coaches in exchange for a night or two lodging, please contact us asap!
Or if there is anyone else in the Portland area that’s just thrilled to have us and our six-year old visit, give us a shout!
So here I was thinking about how crazy wonderful this last week has been since we launched this site and already have a workshop in place in Vancouver, BC in August. I thought to myself, ‘funny that things really take off when we decide to go somewhere else to hold a workshop. I wonder why we couldn’t do a workshop like that right here?’ Then it hit me – we could!
Sure we want to travel and work. But before we start our travels, let’s do a workshop in Sacramento for virtual assistants. So I called my buddy Jeff Louie at Capsity Offices and we quickly secured the venue for the July 9, 2010 workshop. Thank you Jeff for sponsoring this event for us. So if you’re a virtual assistant in the Sacramento area, check out the workshop to help you build your business. We’d love to have you! And please, share this with other VAs you know in the area.
Everything is coming together for the workshop we’ll be hosting in Vancouver in August for virtual assistants. Last night I got word from another virtual assistant that she’s definitely interested in sponsoring the workshop and we’re working on the details. Today we spoke with Renee Shupe, The Redhead VA, who has graciously offered her support to help us put together and promote the workshop to local virtual assistants in the Vancouver area.
We have a call in to a local co-working venue in Vancouver where we hope to make arrangements to hold the workshop. We have commitments from at least two other professionals to provide copies of their book and CD as give aways to attendees. And we’re working on some other ideas to give the virtual assistants who attend the workshop the most value possible.
If you are a virtual assistant and would like to contribute something as a give away for workshop attendees, please use the Contact page and let us know.
