December 21st marked the start of a new stage in my being a Virtual Assistant. I attended a seminar conducted by none other than Mr. Jomar Hilario at Rosewood Pointe in Taguig, Philippines.
But before I give you the details of the seminar, I’d like you to read below a little about Mr. Jomar Hilario.

Ok on to a few details about the seminar ..
It was an eye opener for all of us, even for me who has been doing VA projects for about 4 months now. Actually, I was the only VA present in that particular seminar. All of the other attendees haven’t tried (I think) being a full blast VA but already heard about it.
The lessons were all about being a Virtual Assistant. Definitions, tools, positive and negative aspects of being one and many more. You have to attend the seminar on January 29th to know more because I can’t reveal it all here. You can check out the next seminar at – http://www.bit.ly/manilava.
It was a successful seminar. Lots of questions were asked and answered. Lessons were highly informative and freebie tips were shared. The whole room were alive and buzzing, all eyes and ears were at Mr. Hilario and on those who are sharing their knowledge.
Me, sharing what I know..
I am so happy to find a mentor in Mr. Jomar Hilario. He is very accommodating and you can relax during the seminar because he ain’t that strict. But you have to listen to learn the trade and speak when you have something to say.
We were each given our assignments to be submitted 2 months after the seminar/training. We need to get high grades, just like in school, so the future employers will hire us. I can’t divulge it here, but those assignments will bring me to a higher level in the Virtual Assistant world! So, I’m excited and scared.. but I know I can do it!
If you want to earn online, this is the proper way to do it.. Be armed and get ready, coz after the seminar, you’ll enter another world where competition is tough but hard work and diligence pays.. and in $$$$.. 🙂
