The virtual assistance industry is booming as layoffs amid a down economy send the previously employed in search of a way to earn a living.

Friday, February 19, 2010 at 9am PST/12 EST Diana shares her expertise with members of the Virtual Assistant Forums (VAF) community in a special chat event designed to help both new and established VAs take their own marketing efforts to the next level.
Virtual Assistants who implement Diana's proven methods will bring more visibility to their virtual assistance businesses and can expect an increase in traffic flow to their websites.

Virtual Assistant Forums members in attendance at this free educational event will receive a free copy of Diana's recently revised PR Informational Package, which includes an extensive list of free press release submission options.

What’s one of the most Powerful Ways to Jump-Start Your Small Business Growth?
If you’re like most entrepreneurs, you’ve got your nose to the grindstone all the time. But when you’re always busy working you don’t notice what’s changing in the marketplace, or what’s new that you could be taking advantage of to better market your business. And these days, thanks to the Internet and the economy both of these things are changing at an incredibly fast pace.
So if you’re always busy putting out fires and taking care of clients and customers, you’re likely missing out on one of the most powerful ways to grow your small business… Attending events!
One of the best ways to stay inspired and on top of the latest trends and opportunities is to regularly attend conferences, events and workshops outside of your industry. Because, while reading about the latest and greatest online or in books is great, nothing substitutes for hearing experts speak live about what they’re doing and what’s new.
But let’s face it, spending a few thousand dollars and taking a week off work to go to a conference or seminar isn’t always possible. So I’ve got the next best thing for you!
I’ve been invited to speak as one of 12 small business experts at the upcoming FREE 3-day “Small Business Success Telesummit.” It’s all done by phone, so you can attend every session, or just one or two, from the comfort of your own home or office.
Topics include everything from using social media and other online tools for marketing, creating a more compelling personal bio, mastering in-person networking, how to market your expertise using tips booklets, time-management techniques, outsourcing secrets and more. There’s even a live Q & A segment with the experts at the end of each call.
Here’s a list of all the amazing speakers scheduled for the three-day event:
social media expert Nancy Marmolejo, PR experts Shannon Cherry, Diane Ennen (that's me!) and Nancy Juetten, Time Liberator Susan Lannis, The Tips Booklet Queen Paulette Ensign, Savvy Networker Zita Gustin, Results Coach Leanne Hoagland-Smith, Founder of the HUBstreet social networking site Nancy Fox, New Business Mentor Leah Grant, Internet Marketing Strategist Erin Blaskie, and Practical Marketing Expert Stacy Karacostas. Plus, everyone who registers receives a bonus ebook packed with helpful articles from these experts.
Now you can get the info you need to transform your business without spending a penny or traveling anywhere!
So what are you waiting for? While the event is totally free to attend live, phone lines for the calls are limited. If you’re ready to take your business to the next level go here and register for the Telesummit right away:

With each New Year, there’s that heady scent of change in the air… But to breathe in the sweet smell of POSITIVE change, you have to take key steps to create it.
It’s a fast-paced world out there nowadays. So it’s critical to stay a step ahead of your competition. You can’t do that if you don’t stay on top of what’s new.
Embracing business-growing change means getting your marketing house in order and your processes down pat… AND it means learning to use the latest, most forward-looking ways to grow your small business in 2010 (think social media, online PR, and more).
That’s why I’m inviting you to join me for FREE at the Small Business Success Telesummit 2010 in January. Listen in as 12 small business experts (including yours truly!) share our best business-building secrets, AND answer your questions live!
Need a preview? Here’s a sampling of what these experts will be covering (complete with live Q&A phone time so you can ask YOUR questions):
· How to spot REAL opportunities on the Web, and what to do about them
· How small-business owners can bust through roadblocks and shift from overwhelmed to in-control, focused action, and use systems to get crucial and routine work done in the fastest, most effective way
· Understanding how the impression you make on people is the impression they’ll have of your business—learn to make it quite good, and memorable
· Discovering the RIGHT way to ask for work to be completed by a Virtual Assistant when you have a hard-to-describe vision in mind, looking specifically at the magic of good communication
· What you need to know to write a press release TODAY, and how they differ from the ones of yesteryear
· …And plenty more!
This awesome line-up is speaking over three weekdays—and that means at least some of the presentation bound to fit your schedule. Check it out here, and be sure to reserve your spot as phone lines are limited!
We both know that if you want your small business to keep growing (regardless of the darned economy), you need to keep soaking up advice on marketing and running your business more effectively.
