    Any Wordpress Theme Recommendations

    Hi Margretta, Although I'm not disagreeing with you about needing to be an experienced user of WP to make use of a framework. I think that statement would be accurate for anyone wanting to customize ANY type of theme. Unless you're taking the theme, as is, straight out of the box with no...

    Any Wordpress Theme Recommendations

    Great! I personally don't recommend Elegant Themes. I purchased their package a few years ago and almost pulled my hair out trying to customize the themes. It was very difficult because at least at the time, they were not built on a framework. Not sure about Headway. Frameworks are easier, IMO...

    Problem Marketing Myself and My Business

    Thanks to everyone who replied in this thread, even if your comments weren't directed at me. As for me.... I am all over the place in terms of my emotions. It's sort of like that "11th Hour" kind of feeling. I feel like I'm hanging by a thread....want to kick some butt....want to try one more...

    Any Wordpress Theme Recommendations

    You might want to try something that is built around a framework. That way the code of the framework can be constantly updated and secured, but it won't break the theme (look and feel) of the site. There are several Wordpress Frameworks out there. I like the Genesis Framework coupled with a...

    Problem Marketing Myself and My Business

    Yeah...unfortunately (for me) a year+ of a "Slush fund" didn't seem to be enough. I made lots of mistakes along the way, I'm sure. But still...I'm starting to think that some people just don't have the "discoverability" to be an online business owner. Call it karma. Call it one's aura. I don't...

    Web site help.

    I have a Wordpress site that uses the Genesis framework and a customized Studiopress theme. I like Studiopress because its easy to setup and use. They are also responsive (mobile friendly). If you know a little CSS, you can customize it very easily. If you know Wordpress to an intermediate...

    Problem Marketing Myself and My Business

    Welcome to my hell as well. I'm starting to think that I must have done something really awful in a past life...because I CANNOT seem to get a client. It is weird. I'll have a few interested parties that then get cold feet and are uninterested. I feel basically invisible even though I know I do...

    Question Samples of Work

    This is sort of related...sort of unrelated. I have another website (not VA) where I have an eLearning portfolio. The problem with is that almost all of my stuff, I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement so I'm stuck. So what I did for a few pieces was re-create the thing but totally sanitized...

    Google+ Business Page?

    No problemo....you can have as many pages as you like. And the pages can each have their own YouTube channel if needed. So you can hook that up as well. I find sometimes that its actually easier to create the new YouTube channel under the business name/page...which automagically creates the...

    What's on your home office wish list?

    Re: What is on your wish list? Yep....they do both. Mine doesn't have an incline. But the speed can get up to a slow jog. But I usually have it really really slow. After a few minutes, you don't even realize you're on it. I can't do any graphic design work while on it as i need a steady hand...

    What's on your home office wish list?

    Re: What is on your wish list? Cool! I have one of those two. I was able to get one of those desks that you can raise or lower. So I can sit, stand or walk at my desk by turning a crank. :)

    So who is your ideal client? Is it artists? What do you want to help them with...what are your services? I know this may change later, but I doubt you're going to offer both bookkeeping services AND help with editing someone's manuscript AND web design support AND making travel arrangements...

    What's on your home office wish list?

    In terms of your business and / or home office, what is on your wish list? This can be a course, a certificate, a piece of software or hardware. Me? The biggest thing right now is a new Wacam drawing tablet. I've had mine for at least 10 years...if not 15. It has stuck by my side with driver...
