The OIVAC had Fran Capo speaking at the Virtual Assistant Awards Ceremony and she had a most valuable message for everyone there! And that was doing what you enjoy – that life shouldn’t be spent working at a job you don’t like. She also reminded us that the majority of things we worry about do not take place, but that fear holds people back from doing a lot of things. Great message, fast speaker, and very entertaining! It really helped reinforce that I am doing what I love and am so grateful for that! Not that I really needed that reinforced – I’ve known it for ages. But it was good for all present to hear that message – and it’s an important message too.
She had some great one-liners that were also great advice for those in attendance!
Fall down seven times, get up eight!
Live every day as if it’s your last, and one day you’ll be right!
She finished off with a mother telling her children a bedtime story; the fastest version of the Three Little Pigs I’ve ever heard!
There was so much Fran said and there will be a recording available later. I’ll be getting it – I want to listen to Fran again!
In the meantime, congratulations to both Jaime Lee Mann and Terry Green for winning the 2007 IVAD Awards! They are very worthy recipients and I’m sure you will be hearing more about them in the VA Industry!
