I started a Video Marketing Challenge where I was challenged to post a video of me speaking on camera actually showing my face every day. I did get all 22 videos done. I did do some in a batch instead of one a day. It’s just easier for me to record that way. Check out my videos below:
This past Saturday I had the opportunity to attend a different type of event. The whole idea behind this event was for us to allow ourselves a chance to get pampered. This is important, especially for small business owners because we typically wear all the hats in our business. We usually spend so much time taking care of others that we neglect taking care of our own needs. I really enjoyed this opportunity to fellowship with other entrepreneurs in a safe environment without having to worry about the endless pitches. It was nice to just hang out and really build relationships with other small business owners. That is the bottom line. It’s great to meet new people but if all you’re doing is meeting new people and not building relationships with them, you’re wasting your time. While you’re out networking make sure to spend some time with the people you’ve already met. No one can refer you business if they don’t get a sense of the REAL you. That can only happen if you step away from the virtual world and spend some time networking in the real world. I am going to leave you with some photos and videos from the event. If you want to attend the next event, please be sure to follow this page on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/HadjaKur
Okay so my daughter turns two in a couple of days. That prompted me to record a little update/warning for you guys. Yes, I plan to do more with audio and video than I have been doing. It may not be perfect and you’ll probably hear her in the background. If I try to wait until it is quiet enough for me to record, I’ll have to wait until she’s 5. In the spirit of Take Action, Revise Later, I’ll be recording more stuff and if she makes noise, she makes noise. I can’t exactly tell my clients to just get out there and start recording if I’m not doing the same thing. Stay tuned.
Today you guys are fortunate enough to read a guest post by one of my buddies, Nicole Dean. This will be all about helping virtual assistants understand plr. Enjoy

Here’s a question that I received today. I thought it was such a valuable question that I wanted to share my response.
I hear you talking about PLR articles, but I’m a Virtual Assistant, not an Internet Marketer. I need clients, not content.
Why should I care?
Dear Virtual Assistant:
Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to respond to your great question.
PLR content can actually help you to get more clients. And, I’ll explain how.
As someone who hires and works with a lot of Virtual Assistants in my business, I’ll tell you that I hire oftentimes based upon the knowledge that person shows just as much as what they “say” they can do.
For instance, let’s compare two Virtual Assistants (hypothetically – these aren’t real people).
Susie and Tessa.
I go to Susie’s website and she’s got three pages – including contact, services, and pricing. I look around a little and discover that Susie specializes in videos and multimedia. I think “hmmm… interesting” and then leave.
Next, I find Tessa’s website. She’s got the same pages on her website as Susie – contact, services, and pricing. It looks to me as if she also specializes in videos and multimedia. That’s not what I’m looking for, so I’m about to leave when I notice that she has a blog. On her blog, she’s got articles about how I can use video in my business and how to also use video to get more traffic and make more money. I’m interested. She obviously knows her stuff. I contact her to find out how she can help me to get more traffic with my existing videos – and to brainstorm more videos that I can incorporate into my business on an ongoing basis.
Tessa got my business. Susie did not.
Why? Because Tessa did some things right.
She showed her knowledge.
She demonstrated that she understands marketing by having a blog.
She made me think about my business.
She seemed like a person who I’d like to work with.
How does this apply to PLR content? Easy.
Susie could have had my business if she had purchased some great quality PLR content and published it on her blog. Of course, as always, I would recommend that Susie use the content as a starting point only and then add her own ideas and examples into it to make it uniquely hers. But, the important thing is that she could have had an active blog offering great value to potential new customers that showcased her talent and made people desperate to hire her.
And, she could have done it for under $20.

If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time you will notice that from time to time I will put a video up instead of just text. I’ll bet you were wondering how I did that. Youtube makes it really easy to embed videos into wordpress. In fact, today’s post is a tutorial my friend Nicole Dean has created to show you how to do just that. Take it away Nicole…
