PROGRAM: What can a Virtual Assistant do for the busy author
You have an amazing business plan set now on what you want to do for your busy author career, but time is always being stolen from your creativity. Too many facebook posts a day shows desperation, but if you disappear then you’re not advertising. The merry-go-round continues until the author jumps ship, but there is an alternative. Diana Ennen is here to show us how once the author has a plan, just what a virtual assistant can do in terms of marketing and juggling your career. You can hire help, and still be in charge of your own success. Virtual assistants might be the answer to your prayer.
Diana Ennen, president of Virtual Word Publishing, www.virtualwordpublishing.com offers PR and Marketing, specializing in book marketing, and PR Coaching. She’s the co-author of Virtual Assistant – The Series: Become a Highly Successful, Sought After VA
