We are donating 50% of all proceeds from the sales of Joan’s book, Underneath It All. The book is discounted to $12 for the month of November.

It’s time to talk about webinar etiquette. We’ve been hosting a free monthly webinar since January of 2015 and as the events grow each month the chatter during the event increases. We love this feature but we’ve heard from a few attendees that some of the comments aren’t appropriate for the webinar and we wanted to take this opportunity to address webinar etiquette and protocol.
Here are a few quick tips.
- Introduce yourself in the chat and get to know fellow attendees.
- Share relevant strategies as well as resources with your fellow attendees.
- Keep your commentary positive and optimistic.
- Read pre-webinar messaging carefully.
- If you are having difficulty logging in, please follow the steps sent via email for troubleshooting guidance.
- If the difficulty continues, please check with your IT dept to make sure the site isn’t blocked by a Firewall.

Our team recently had the opportunity to fly to Orlando, Florida and participate in the inaugural Admin Pro Forum event hosted by our friends at Business Management Daily. We always enjoy traveling together and our opportunities to do so are few and far between.
I really love attending events for the administrative profession. It’s a great chance to network and show our support for the profession.
The administrative community forms bonds quickly and tightly. I’ve built an outstanding network around the world with professionals at all levels through attending events like this one. I also know many assistants who have done the same and have thriving administrative networks today along with much career success.
While in Orlando we thought it would be fun to record a few Facebook Live posts while we were at the event. We hope you enjoy these videos of our event recaps each day; you can find them embedded in this post below. We hope to see you at an event in the near future! [Read more…]
