JLVAS New Blog Images-Webinars

Have you ever attended a live webinar? I’m guessing you have, they are everywhere! Personally, I’m a huge fan! While I never really enjoyed traveling to attend in-person seminars because of expensive travel, hotels, and food, webinars are a completely different story. All you need to pay for a webinar is the cost of “entry.” You can safely stay comfy at home and learn everything you’d get from an in-person seminar for a fraction of the cost and time investment.  If you’re a small business owner, I’m sure that the idea of putting on your own webinar has occurred to…

Wait! Stop! Don’t post that photo of your dog on your Instagram! Ok, maybe I was overreacting slightly (it’s not like the internet can’t use a few dogs). But you should know that countless small business owners are making simple mistakes when using Instagram to promote themselves and their business. Instagram is my current favorite of all the social media networks. It actually reminds me a lot of Facebook before Facebook became “FACEBOOK!”  It’s a place where you can simply enjoy your friend and followers’ content. No spammy games, random news stories, and other kinds of unwanted content. Instead, you…

How-To-Double-Your-Income-By-Working-Less-JLVAS

Over the last year, did it ever feel like you’re working much more for less income? For many people, their dream is to work from home. They believe that it will give them freedom!

Haha!  Working from home isn’t the pleasure cruise that many people think it is. When you work from an office, quitting time really is quitting time. Believe me, I know! I’m always a…

That’s where I put down all of the topics that I want to cover in my podcast, blog, webinars, and YouTube videos. Let me tell you, coming up with 52+ fresh ideas is NOT easy! And…

How to Find and Work with a Virtual Assistant

How to Find and work with a virtual assistant

Wouldn’t it be great to have an assistant at your beck and call? All you’d need to do is hit the intercom on your desk, and like a flash, they appear!  Unfortunately, that’s beyond the means of most small business owners. Many of them work out of their home. Unless they draft their kids into the role, (take it from me, this isn’t a great idea! haha!) having an assistant might seem like it simply isn’t possible.  Or is it?  The Internet Created Countless Jobs The internet has created countless brand-new types of jobs over the last twenty years, including…
