I attended my second Michigan Virtual Assistants conference this month in Ann Arbor. I love this gathering because it’s small and intimate, we really have the opportunity to get to know the others in attendance.
I spent the evening before and after in a suite with four women I got to know last June during the FoVA conference in Niagara Falls. A couple of other Michigan VA’s joined us on Friday night during our wine and food session.
My take away from this weekend was a stronger team; for which I am very thankful. I wish ALL my team members could have attended but some of them are located in other states and one has an ocean between us. Perhaps one day we’ll figure out how to gather face to face, but in the meantime, we’ll focus on what we do best: virtual business relationships.
Thanks to the speakers, Pam Ivey, who hails from my old hometown of Wasaga Beach and to Lauren Pibworth who lives in the same city my children were born (yes, it IS a small world). Also thanks to everyone who had a hand in the organizing of the event, including Tamara Jaros and special thanks to Kristi Pavlik who had two hands AND both arms involved.
