Welcome to another edition of the Once a Week Newsletter! This is Number 18.
But before we get started, how in the heck are you? Up here in the Pacific Northwest, it's cold and rainy. By this time, there should be snow on the ground. There is, but not here. LOL
My oldest claims that it always snows the day of the Super Bowl. So looking forward to the white stuff on Sunday!
But until then, the forecast is…RAIN! It IS the PNW, after all, and the rainy season, also called every month except August and September, is here. It just hasn't been cold enough to snow yet.
I hear the Northeast is getting their share and our share this year. I guess that's okay. The kids miss the snow play.
It really makes no difference to me, except that, right now, I don't have any snow to shovel. I never understood how anybody actually liked doing that.
Alright, are you ready? Let's get it on!
How to Become a Virtual Assistant And Work on Your Own Terms
Wanted to help top entrepreneurs grow their businesses while working with flexibility? Becoming a virtual assistant may be the path for you and here’s how to get started.

Chasing the cool kids
Quick! Get on Myspace, it's where all the good stuff is. Wait! Better build your following on Facebook. It's a land rush and once you amass enough followers…hell build your own virtual real estate.
Bottom line: I've said a million times in my emails to you, my old Meetups, and right here on the blog that you should never be a sharecropper. That is to say, own your own assets. Don't rent them. Build them, improve them, and watch them grow in value. NOBODY but nobody can take away what you've built on your own virtual real estate.

Get More Out of Your Content with Amy Woods: Content Repurposing 101
Content repurposing is the act of creating content for multiple communication channels. But getting it right can be tricky.
Bottom line: Another thing I've reiterated over the decades is repurposing your content. You give a lot to your content – it should give back to you. This newsletter is a perfect example: I post it here first, then I send it out to my OWN subscribers. It's also plastered over the social media channels that are important to me.
