Okay, so now you have your profile set up in Twitter with your photo.  What to do next.  First I would start off by finding some folks/companies to follow.  In the "search" space on the right of your home screen put in a term that is an interest to your business, or names of associates.  When you...
In response to a previous article I posted regarding Twitter, I thought it might be helpful for some folks if I broke it down a little, as it was quite lengthy.

There are many reason to hire a Virtual Assistant rather than having an in-office employee.  The main reason is the cost.  At first glance it appears that the hourly wage of a Virtual Assistant is much more per hour then you would pay an in-office assistant.  But in reality, virtual employees can...
