I love hearing the information from the great speakers you line up. Almost as valuable is getting the input and viewpoints from the attendees in the chat. I will be reviewing and updating my website based on great advice that Lisa Wells shared. It’s all about the client, not you!
Patricia Whitt Marcero
Thank you Tawnya for being such a great Mentor. I am just starting my VA business and the information you have available is amazing !!! Some of it gives a completely new way of approaching things; some confirms what I had thought. This year’s VAVS was awesome – each of the speakers offered some great suggestions. There was lots to take away and implement. Thank you 😊
Thank you Tawnya for the review of all the speakers. I am so happy to have made business connections. I am going to implement your suggestion of tackling 1 change a week to my business. I look forward to VAVS14!!
Sabrina Mattera Martyn
Fabulous first day for #VAVS! There were lots of take-aways. I liked that our website is not about us but more about our clients’ benefits. I liked that content marketing continues to be hot. And I liked Craig’s list of the top 10 skills clients want in a VA.
Do it! This was the BEST conference I have ever attended!!!! The value was priceless!!! #vavs
I was so excited that the review of the conference was on today and as usual it was fabulous. I don’t think I could do this (get started as a VA) without you all. Thank you!
Amazing time at #VAVS online conference for Virtual Assistants. Met lovely people learned a lot. So grateful to be part of this community!
Brain: full. Notebook: even fuller.
#VAVS 13 is in the books.
Laura A. Lee
Great first day! Lots of helpful information. I already feel like I’ve gotten a return on my investment. Looking forward to tomorrow.
Sabrina Mattera Martyn
Great VAVS so far. Tawnya brings in the best speakers! She makes sure they really know our industry. Some seminars I’ve been to have generic speakers who only address general entrepreneurial issues, but VAVS always has speakers that are spot on with info for VAs!
Lots of helpful information. Learning more ways to grow my VA business. Thank you Tawnya for offering this Virtual Assistant Conference! #VAVS
Excellent speakers brought @ #VAVS. Learning lots to grow my VA Business.
The #VAVS was awesome! Such great info and speakers. Diving into the replays.
My first VAVS! Learning lots!
Tawnya, thank you so much for offering the VAVS training. I quit my Corporate America job in June to start my VA business. I didn’t have all the tools and knowledge I needed to run a successful business, only faith that God would connect me with the right people to help me. The training you offered this week gave me the missing knowledge, tools, resources, and network of other VA’s that I needed. The training exceeded my expectations, and I am so hyped about launching my business in the next few weeks. I have already taken advantage of some of the great resources that the speakers offered. You and your organization are a Godsend to me.

I just attended VAVS 12 and do not regret having paid the price so that I can continue to listen to the webinars for six months. It is the best value for the money and it is not just for VA, I have found if you want to start a home base business this is for you also. It is held twice each year and I can’t wait until the next session.
Just finished being a part of VAVS12. Both Tawnya and Danielle always do a wonderful job setting up the seminars. I always learn a ton from all 20 speakers. I also am a VA Insider as well. All information that is given is priceless. I can’t wait to use all of the great tips given both in the seminars as well as the Insider group to create a business that I can always be proud of. Thank you so much!
Having a great time on VAVS12. Learning a lot and meeting great people who I can learn from.
There is so much information I buy the Gold ticket so I can review the presentations later on.
Thank you Tawyna this is a real boon for VAs.
VAVS12 is my fourth one and counting. I came in very discouraged this week, but nearing the end of VAVS I’m energized again. What a boost! Every time I attend, there’s something new, and the things I thought I was getting a handle on become clearer than before. Next, I can keep on rolling as a member of VA Insiders to get even more year-round! Thanks for this awesome opportunity!
VAVS is consistently the most enjoyable and valuable online seminar I ever have the opportunity to attend; I rarely miss one. One of the best aspects is how interactive and engaged the participants are able to be. There’s a text chat going on in a sidebar at all times, even during presentations. This allows attendees to add relevant information and tips as well as get to know, support and encourage each other. Tawnya’s friendly, unflappable facilitation encourages a casual yet business-oriented atmosphere. Speakers are generally VAs themselves (unlike the generic speakers one often hears at conferences). This means they know our industry, so what they impart directly applies to us. I always learn a TON, even though I’ve been in business for decades.
I’m an experienced VA, but I still have a lot to learn about this constantly changing business. There is a great variety of speakers and topics, and quite a bit of support from the other attendees.
All this, without having to put shoes on.
VAVS is definitely a great networking and informational conference that every VA or aspiring VA should attend at least once.
Every Year I look forward to the annual VAVS Online Conference hosted by Tawnya Sutherland. This is my second year attending and I can’t tell you how much information you gain from attending her event. As a new Virtual Assistant, I find that the community here is so warm, encouraging, and helpful. On a few occasions, I’ve visited her online forum and asked questions about specific situations encountered in my business and received several responses that worked!!. I will be signing up to her membership in the near future as she has a VAULT full of goodies for new and seasoned VA’s. Tawnya, thank you so much for hosting this event each year! I can hardly wait to see who the presenters will be next year. Awesome job!!
Business Essentials, LLC
Attending the #VAVS12 virtual conference this week has been so refreshing. I’ve had a few ups and downs over the past year when I was laid off from my job in Corporate America. Now that I have ventured out to start my own virtual assistant business all of the information I received at #VAVS12 has been just what I needed to keep me motivated. Although I couldn’t really afford the ticket. I did the silver package for $37 and it was well worth the value and then some! All of the speakers had valuable information to share with the attendees. I hope to be a speaker at #VAVS13 so that I can add value to someone that may be just starting their business too. Thank you Tawnya!!!!
Virtually4You Administrative Services
Excellent 2015 VAvirtuosos Series! Quality presenters, I gain more VA in-site with every day’s sessions. And I’m so happy that I chose the Gold ticket. The availability to playback the sessions is priceless. This allows me the time to review my notes and glean any info I might have missed.
Great job Tawnya and all involved in this years event!
VAs look no further. What a life changer! How many of us have spent many endless hours searching the internet wondering what to do next? Well – I struck gold. Tawnya is the real deal. She hosted the event and provided us with a talented team of presenters. Wow, there is an exciting new VA world out there to experience. The conference was stimulating, inspiring and a whole lot of fun. The best thing is, when you make the decision to take control of your business life – you won’t be alone, Tawnya can be with you every step of the way and if you need to reach out to VAs, her VA Networking Forum is free. So, I only paid to join the Virtual Assistant Online Conference, which also enabled me to become a member of Tawnya’s VA Insiders Club. One of the best investments I have made. Thank you for showing me the way Tawnya.
Just finished the week of VAVS 10. Fabulous speakers, countless fresh ideas, networking and more networking. So much to learn, so little time. This training sharpened my skills, gave me new ideas, and encouraged me. This was my second VAVS and I plan to attend again…and again. Thank you VA networking for this experience! I recommend this to all virtual assistants, new and experienced. Irene Chambers It’s About Time Virtual Assistance
VAVS 10 was well worth the $37 investment! I connected with other VA’s and speakers during and after the event and received some valuable information offered by speakers to apply to my business. I will definitely attend the next VAVS event!
Brainy Girl Virtual Assistant
The VAVS Conference was one of the best investments I have ever made. I highly recommend it! The wealth of information was mind-boggling and so useful. I’ve been wanting to do this for years but didn’t have the know-how or support. Now I do. This is a great support group and I know I can now have a successful VA business. Thanks Tawnya to you and all of your great speakers. It was a wonderful experience and I look forward to attending more of these in the future.
As a new VA just starting my business, this VAVS Series couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m learning so much from ladies that have been in the field and want to share what they know. What a great feeling to know that I am not in this journey alone and that I have people to connect with that have the same desires. I will definitely add future VAVS series to my To Do List! Thanks Tawyna (VA Networking) and your group for putting together such an informative series and thanks to all the wonderful speakers who shared their knowledge with me.
Dynamic Executive Assistance
I’ve been attending VAVS for the past 4 years or so. Each year I get more and more out of it…it’s kind of like “you don’t know what you DON’T know”. As I grow in my business, I find there is more and more I need to know and VAVS always comes through in providing that information!
It has been a fun week! My brain is on overload but such good information!
The speakers are so informative and it really inspires me to move forward in my business.
Thank you all for your hard work to put this together!
I found this year’s VAVS was what I needed. I am going through a lot of personal challenges and the business contacts and time spent listening to the speakers were a good investment for me to bring me back to the business side of my life.
I attended your amazing program last week and am looking forward to reviewing and organizing my notes, getting my business and marketing plans in place and reviewing the speakers recordings again. The seminar was packed full of great information and the speakers are great resources for further training. I truly appreciate you all and the time and effort that you put into this series! I feel much more confident in the success of my business.
I’m a previous attendee of the VAVs Series and I LOVE them! All presentations have been very informative and it’s great to be able to access other presentations and receive all of the speaker’s notes in .pdf for later review!
Close as a Click . . . Virtual Solutions
I can’t wait! I attended last year’s VA Virtuosos and it was one of the most informative series of tele-classes for virtual assistants I’ve ever been part of. Not to mention the sidebar chats–what a great community! I can’t believe it’s such an amazing bargain.
What an amazing week it was. So much to learn from established VAs across the pond. I feel lucky to have been able to participate on those webinars – even more as I now can listen to them all over again. Thank you Tawnya, thanks to the presenters.
I Assist You Biz
THANK YOU very much Tawnya!!
I so loved spending time with all of you this week (and look forward to more). GREAT JOB. I’ve participated in many different online presentations, webinars, etc. in the past and was either disappointed or just left with an ‘ok’ feeling at the end. But, I must say I was truly impressed with the quality and quantity of information that you and your presenters provided us.
I was also quite impressed with not only your willingness, but your very visible excitement and pleasure at staying around and giving us even more after most of the presentations had ended. You’ve certainly not only inspired me to push forward with my own business ideas, but also made me feel ‘at home’ within your community.
The quality of your offerings/presentations, your willingness to help/make things easier/add more value, and your genuine care for those who look to you for advice has made me a loyal fan and promoter of you & your organization.
Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know how much I am enjoying the VAVirtuosos Seminar Series. It has been awesome to say the least! The speakers are knowledgeable and it is great that they are sharing their information with the participants. I am so glad that I decided to purchase the Premium package so that I can listen to these seminars at my convenience over and over. I am learning so much and thoroughly enjoying each presentation. I also know that my VA business will reach new heights from attending and listening to all the fantastic speakers. Thanks Tawyna for putting together this wonderful package!
I just wanted to let you know that I am new to the Virtual Assistant Business, although not new to administration. I am taking the Virtual Assistant Program through Red Deer College, Alberta. I have not been in the administration field for over 15 years as I have been a stay at home mom.
Everything in some ways is totally new to me and webinars that you have put on through this summer has been absolutely fantastic. Not only is there a variety of virtual assistants but they are from all over the world. It gives great insight to all aspects of the Virtual Assistant Business and all kinds of options out there.
All the seminars are very informative and easy to understand for a newbie like me. I really hope you continue to create these webinars. You have done a fantastic job arranging, promoting, hosting and making everyone feel comfortable.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THINKING OF ALL OF US AND PUTTING THIS INFORMATION OUT TO US!!!!!
I am a new Virtual Assistant, still in the research process. I decided to sign up for the VAvirtuosos seminars for this summer. I have thoroughly enjoyed learning from all the experienced VA’s , and they have welcomed my questions and comments with grace.
I have learned so much it’s amazing. All in one seminar room, right?
I have learned how to use Twitter in many ways I never knew was available, Social media skills, how to discover your indispensable brand (not sure I understood what that meant before I listened) and bookkeeping…just to mention a few.
I am just so happy I am participating, and I look forward to the upcoming seminars.
This was great money spent!
Tawyna has done a fantastic job of setting up the Virtuosos Seminar. Each speaker is willing to share their experiences and knowledge with us. It is great to hear it from those that have been there and done it. After two weeks I upgraded to the premium package as I don’t want to miss a thing. Keep up the great work!
Just Ask Virtual Assistant Services
Wow! Where do I start to tell you how much I LOVE the Virtuoso Seminar Series! Let me start by saying, I had to miss one today, due to circumstances beyond my control, and I feel like I missed out on so much. I need my Seminar fix! They are not only educational and informative, extremely affordable and worth every penny, but a great way to connect with other VA’s. The speakers are wonderful and the topics are enlightening. I’ve learned so much from the seminars thus far (and there are SO many more to come), that it makes what I thought I knew pale in comparison. The seminars have motivated me so much that I secured a new client just by applying a few of the skills I learned. Thanks again for such a wonderful series of seminars!
Thanks for putting together the VAVirtuosos Series. After seeing the line up speakers and topics, I thought it would be good. WOW, it’s better than I anticipated. The speakers have given freely of their time and talents sharing their knowledge with other VAs. This is a great way to strengthen the skill set of VAs and help grow our industry.
Tawnya, you’re awesome. I want to grow up to be like you!
Bailey Business Services, Inc
The lineup of Virtual Assistants that Tawnya and VANetworking put together for the summer series has proven to be a highly knowledgeable group of individuals. Knowing I would be unable to listen in to many of the seminars live I quickly signed up for the upgraded package with all the replays so I can listen to the replays at my convenience. If you are a Virtual Assistant who has been desiring to sharpen your skills in areas you have not ventured into yet or even if you are a business owner who would like to learn more, this series is certainly for you. Well worth the money to learn new tips and tricks to take your business to the next level.
Owner Your Virtual Assistant
I just wanted to thank you Tawyna & Linda for organizing VAvirtusos 4. It is very mind blowing to me to be in an industry where I have other VAs who are whiling to share their information with me so that I can be successful! I have learnt so much in this seminar series and am super excited to start putting the things I have learnt into practice to grow my business!!! Thank you tenfold!!!
Fenix Virtual Office Services
I am totally enjoying the VAvirtuosos Series. I am learning a lot that will help me grow my confidence and my business. Thank you, Tawnya, for putting on this awesome series! You are truly a gem.
DT Vitual Services
I had a great experience at the Spring 2012 VA Virtuosos Seminars! The presenters were engaging and the seminars were packed with a wealth of information to help make my VA business a success. A big “thank you” to Tawnya and to all of the presenters for all the hard work they put into this series.
These VAvirtuosos seminars have been the best seminars I have ever attended! They are not only jammed packed with educational information but they are blast to attend. The cream of the crop are here and sharing all the insider secrets. This is a series that should not be missed. Making these key connections is priceless to any virtual business. I am so excited everyday to attend the seminars, I turn off the TV, the phone and have child entertainment ready! I wouldn’t miss these seminars. I have really enjoyed meeting these phenomenal women and can’t wait to meet the remaining ladies.
Premiere Virtual Office
Thank-you Tawnya and team for the work you’ve put into setting up the Summer seminar series. The variety of topics are relevant to my business and I’ve been able to put into practice something from each seminar I’ve attended thus far! Nowhere else could I get this kind of exposure to the VA industry for the nearly the same price. Even the opportunity to network with and ask questions of the veteran VAs running the seminars is a value all unto itself. Thank-you, thank-you thank-you!
Edge VA Services
I wanted to thank you for the valuable information you shared with us at the VA Virtuosos Seminar Series on web copy.
I am new to the VA business and the information will be very helpful in starting my business on the right foot.
The VAs who have presented thus far in the VA Virtuosos Seminar Series have been truly amazing! I’m in awe of what great presenters they are, how passionate they are about what they do, and how knowledgeable they are on their subject matter. I’ve had my VA practice for 5 years, and this series is really motivating me to shake things up a bit. My marketing efforts have become somewhat stale, but these calls have re-energized me to explore some new avenues for promoting my business and expanding my prospective client reach. The topics for the series are incredibly timely and invaluable. I’m excited to hear how else I can be enlightened by the experts still to come! Thanks, Tawnya, for putting together this wonderful series for us.
Join Us at Our Next #VAVS
The VAvirtuosos seminars are filled with so much knowledge, sharing and great fun to attend. I knew I would miss some of the sessions since “life happens” so I as soon as it was the seminar announcement came out, I immediately signed up for the full package which includes not only the access to the webinar recordings and the PDF of the presentations.
This was my best investment this year besides attending FoVA.
Thank you Tawnya and all the great speakers who are so willing to share their time and expertise.
Just wanted to drop a line on how valuable these calls have been to me. These calls have encouraged me to take time out in my day for me to improve myself and my skills as a VA.
This was a wonderful series and well worth the money. There was such a good variety of topics that something appealed to everyone. The downloads and resources are priceless. My only problem was living on the East Coast I was rarely able to listen to them live and participate. Thank God the recordings were available so I could listen to them at my leisure.
THANK YOU so much to Tawyna for coordinating such a great VA Virtuosos event for 2011, and making it very affordable for anyone to attend. Where else can you find 20 seminars for such a low price?!
The seminar presenters were all top notch, and I thought the mix of topics was just right. We have ended up with so much good information to take and apply to our businesses, and I can’t wait to try out many of the ideas, websites and software programs that were presented!
Thanks to all the presenters, and again, to Tawyna for offering the event, and also to Linda Harris for helping her all week long! I also enjoyed meeting new people from around the world and hearing about their various specialties.
See you at the forums …
Anderson Business Support Solutions
Tawyna, this week at VAVS7 has been phenomenal! All 20 seminars were packed with information I will use to build my virtual assistant business. Everything was a joy to network with between seminars. I think this was this a invaluable resource to kick-start my business and would recommend to anyone interested in becoming a virtual assistant.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for offering this at such an affordable price!
Tawnya, Our VAVirtual Goddess!
I cannot begin to explain how enlightening, inspiring, and uplifting the seminar has been so far, and it’s only going on day 3! Having just started my VA business I did not think I could learn more as my brain was saturated, but you proved me wrong! I have taken a whole legal pad of notes already, am craving each new day’s speakers and webinars and learning.
This is by far, the best webinar series I have ever taken, everything is timed, presented nicely, monitored, thoughtfully put together. I could not think of any improvements, it is so good already!
If you are on the fence trying to decide if you SHOULD take part in these, get off that fence and DO IT! This will change the course of your business overnight! I have already got an e-book in mind just from one of yesterday’s courses. I also know what direction to go in for my niche, which was my most difficult area at the moment.
Thank you again for putting this out there for us to take part in and gain knowledge from! Keep them coming!
You could charge even more and you would have the classes filled!
Thanks Tawnya and all the great presenters!
Send Us Your Testimonial
What an amazing week of webinars! all of the information is very valuable for me as I am now starting my business as a Virtual Assistant. The speakers have a lot of experience on their fields and they knew to transmit it to us a in a very clearly way. Thanks for their time and effort to make us understand the most important and trendy topics within this industry.
Thank you very much Tanwya and your wonderful team for all the love you put in designing them and for your professionalism that I admire, you’all made this webinars such a great experience for me; I also loved meeting all the VA’s and what they gently shared with me.
Edna Campos from Mexico
I got so much out of this series of seminars. As a new VA just in the stage of creating my website, every single seminar was valuable and applicable for me. What a value! Then our course, I became more familiar with all of the resources available to me and will be taking advantage of those. Thanks so much!
Can-Do Administrative Services
I am already having withdrawals. I have to redirect myself now without my daily dose of Tawnya. I can’t thank you enough for providing us all with such great content day after day after day; and three times most days.
I truly don’t know what I would have done without you and your supportive network of virtual assistants. You give me the courage to go forward with my heart’s desire – to have a successful VA business, and I’m so anxious to give back as well. In a year or so, I hope to be in a position to volunteer for my own seminar to give back as you do day after day. I do love to share my passion with others when it is something I truly love and believe in. Above all, Tawnya, you give others the direction, strength and courage to believe in themselves. Without that belief and the ensuing confidence, we will go nowhere.
Thank you for opening the door to the VA path for me. Now I can look at the termination of my employment with hope and excitement, instead of the usual dread!!
Tawnya Sutherland founder of VAnetworking.com (the largest Virtual Assistant Networking Association business network) has put together an awesome summer workshop series of eSeminars.
Not only are they affordable, they are presented by fellow Virtual Assistants, who have been there, done that, and are willing to share their vast knowledge and experiences. Who in this day and age is willing to give away their secrets for literally free? The line-up is incredible!!
For a very reasonable price you could even get recordings of the sessions, so that you can listen to them over and over again. Which from experience I know you will do, as I have, so that you don’t miss anything.
It’s not too late – go to www.vavirtuosos.com and sign up NOW! You don’t want to miss anymore. Whether you are thinking of becoming a Virtual Assistant, are a new Virtual Assistant, are an established Virtual Assistant, or a Certified Virtual Assistant; you can certainly learn something. I know I have!
A big thank you to Tawnya for putting together this series! As always you have outdone yourself.
Crystal Clear Business Solutions
I am really enjoying the presentations offered in the VA Virtuoso Seminar Series. Wow, what a line-up of presenters Tawnya has provided. The best of the best. I’m learning so much, and I have enough notes and tasks on my “to do” list now to keep me busy until the next VA Virtuoso. I strongly recommend this program for all Virtual Assistants. There is something for everyone.
Jaclyn M. Croft
Croft Virtual Solutions
Thanks for bringing such a wealth of information to me and my fellow VAs. The seminars have given me a ton of information on how to be a successful VA. You are to be commended for putting this together and offering the series for such a tiny fee!
Airam Virtual Business Solutions
As the other reviews have mentioned, I think the VA Virtuosos seminars have been an integral part of my business. As a new VA just about to “formally” start my business, I have gathered a wealth of information, knowlege, and resources to help me stay on top of my game.
Personally, I have found that not only are the seminars and speakers of excellent calibre, but I have also found the banter and camraderie among the participants to be a refreshing change from the cut-throat business world. Administrative assistants in the business world are as competitive as everyone else, and to have the feeling of “we’re all in this together” and “you can do it; we’ll help you in any way we can” is overwhelming in this day.
I think most of the accolades go to you; you have given so much of yourself to this, and along the way have collected so many like-minded people; it is wonderful to be involved in it, even at such a minor level.
Thanks again, Tawnya; you’ve made my journey into the solopreneur world much easier, and I can confidently take the steps!
Thank you so much for offering the VAvirtusos Seminar Series! The information, tips and downloadable handouts shared by the speakers have been outstanding. What a great deal! Can’t wait to hear the rest! We all offer different services and specialties so it’s helpful to learn what everyone else is doing.
One of the very best parts of the series? The networking that goes on in the chat room – getting to know the speakers and all the VAs. I now have plans for a meetup on my next vacation. Plus a VA I met during one of the seminars helped me solve a huge tech issue that a major software company and my mobile phone manufacturer had been unable to resolve. And I have lots of new twitter friends. Thanks again, Tawnya!
I just wanted to thank you for sponsoring all the wonderful speakers for the VA Virtuosos Seminar Series. I am just starting my VA business and all the information I received from the speakers were so valuable. I really liked that the topics were so diverse. I really enjoyed the support and advice that all the ladies have given and have decided to sign up to volunteer for the forums.
Your efforts in providing us all the tools for our business is very much appreciated! Thank you!
I’d like to thank Tawnya and her gang for an excellent and rewarding week of seminars. I am just starting out and trying to learn as much as I can about this industry. This week I’ve been able to take something away from each and every seminar. I now have a focus and a direction that I didn’t have before. I would recommend these seminars to anyone and everyone that is interested in becoming, or is already, a virtual assistant. Thank you again for all your hard work and your continued interest in developing and coaching new VAs on their journey into becoming all they can be.
