hi everyone

I am so glad I have found such a pro active forum helping people to find their way with work, guidance and support. First impressions after reading threads the last few days before I joined have shown me this is an active and well run little ship!

I hope to really learn and absorb as much as I can as I have my sights set on establishing myself in the VA industry.

from your fellow reader,

It's a great pleasure having you part of this VA community - welcome aboard! :)

I understand exactly how you felt as I was once a "new" member. It took me few good days of reading, reading and reading - absorbing so much great new information. But it's all well worth it and I'm sure it'll pay off greatly for you.

I'm guessing you're not quite set up yet - have you started on your business planning or are you still just researching? Either way, we're happy to have you and look forward to offering support as you move forward. :)
Hi Jasmine,

Hi Jasmine! Welcome to VAF! Your screen name just cracked me up. Is there a story behind "tea thirty"? Or is it the obviously only substituted for political correctness?

Make it a great day!

Thanks everyone for your active participation and genuine interest. Now to answer your questions...

I am still in initial planning/research stage but am working on my website and the content & design. I have bought a domain and decided on hosting but am also drafting my business plan inbetween this. I am still researching 'marketing' as I am not really a sales type person but need to learn a few tricks..

My current situation is fulltime SAHM with my 1yr old daughter, who is the joy of my life! (stay tunned for her cute pic when I add to my profile)

The story behind my name (for Sundi)
Its from a previous job where I become good friends with a pakistani workmate who would always come visit me at 3.30pm and then let me know it was 'tea thirty' (or in his accent that was how it sounded to me) in other words its time to come share a cuppa : )

Hi Jasmine and welcome. You are in such a fun stage that you'll look back in a few months when you're so busy wishing things would slow down a little. Good luck!!
