How to: Insert a Screen Clipping into an Outlook email message

Please stop using that Print Screen button on your keyboard.. there’s a much better way to do it:

1.      Open a new blank email message

2.      Open the screen that you want to screenshot

3.      Return directly to your email message and click inside the body

4.      Click Insert – Screenshot – Screen Clipping (it will take you back to the last window you had open.)

5.      Once the screen turns grey click and drag over the area you want to screenshot

6.      The portion of screen that you selected will be inserted into your email messag

Please note: This feature is available right across Microsoft Office.

There's no need to hesitate.. let me address your concerns

Over the past few months I have been addressing your concerns one by one. Is this what’s holding you back?

Concern #1: You don’t quite understand how the training works and if it would be suitable for you or your company.
Solution#1: Book a free demonstration via Zoom. It will only take a couple of minutes and I’ll show you just how easy and interactive the training can be.

Concern#2: A tight company budget or lack of personal funding
Solution#2: You will be surprised how much I can fit in to just one or two hours of training. Gaining the right skills will actually save you time and money. Plus I provide discounts for new clients!

Concern#3: You don’t have enough time
Solution#3: I can deliver the training at practically any time and you can receive training from anywhere with internet access. Take the training in your lunch break, late at night or on the weekend. The training does not have to be taken all at once you can take it one hour at a time.

Concern#4: It will be boring
Solution#4: My training is fully interactive, I will teach you by walking you through a serious of practical activities. I will give you the desired knowledge without the nerdy lingo, and the skills without endless hours in a stale classroom.

Concern#5: The Training won’t be relevant to you or your role
Solution#5: Unlike most training offerings out there Savvy Training is completely tailored to your needs. You are able to choose which topics you want/need to learn - so you only learn what is relevant to you. 

I hope this puts your mind at ease. If you have any other concerns that you would like addressed please feel free to let me know.

Do you dream of working in your pyjamas? It’s time to become a Virtual Assistant!

Ahh working from home, it’s an intriguing thought – not wasting time in traffic each day, having flexibility in your schedule, being able to spend more time with your family and yes of course.. working in your pyjamas. But is it really all it’s cracked up to be? 

YES! For over two years now I have been running my own business training Microsoft Office from home. This has allowed me to spend more time with my husband and do the things I love and care about, I’ve even been able to live abroad. They are the big pluses but there are lots of little things, like hanging out the washing between clients or making yourself a delicious lunch or coffee in your own kitchen.

Anyway here is my point, at the moment there is a high demand for Virtual Assistants and Receptionists. The VA Industry is one of the fastest growing industries worldwide. The main reason for this is because women have taken work life balance seriously and created a solution that lets them fit in with all their other commitments.

Whether you are a Mother, Carer, Baby-Boomer or suffer from a chronic illness, becoming a virtual assistant allows you to work around the things that make going out to work difficult. Location isn't an issue either because your clients can be located anywhere as your services are provided online. Communication with your clients happens through sms, email, Skype, phone or Video conference. (See below idea for your new office space)

You don't need to have the stress of juggling early morning routines with school or day-care runs then battling commutes and being stuck in an office from 9-5pm, You can work from home offering your services to a couple of clients and work the hours that suit you. If you have a background in Administration then this is ideal for you.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Get your skills sorted – To be a Virtual Assistant you must be computer Savvy. I can help you with that, I deliver personalised online Microsoft Office Training courses that are both affordable and flexible. Send me an email if you’d like more information: savvytraining@live.com.au

  2. Register with a VA temping company. I have been watching the folks at 121temps for a while now and I feel confident in recommending them. They are constantly looking for virtual receptionists, apply online here: http://www.121temps.info/amember/signup/calloperators They also provide resources and support along the way. Visit their website: www.121temps.com

If you want more information, I spoke to a friend of mine, Liz Parker who is the CEO of 121 Temps and she would be happy to give you a free consultation so that you can decide if this would suit you. Liz has been helping virtual assistants set up and run their own successful virtual business for over 9 years now so she knows everything you need to know to get started.  Online scheduler - https://www.vcita.com/v/liz.parker

Presenting: The Savvy Training Money Back Guarantee

I’ve been running my own business for two years now. I’ve always believed in my product but after two years of successful online training sessions and numerous happy clients (both private and corporate) I have even more confidence.

That is why I have decided to offer a money back guarantee for all courses beginning in March 2015. If you take training and are not happy with what you have learnt I will issue a full refund.

My Microsoft Skills Assessments can save you time and money!

Are your staff really competent in using Microsoft Office?

You could have the most enthusiastic, hardworking and intelligent employee but if they don't know how to properly utilise their tools then they could be wasting your time and money.

I've seen it time and time again.. many people think they have sufficient skills in Excel, Word or PowerPoint but they are missing out on some vital steps and therefore wasting a lot of time.

That is why I have developed my own Skills Assessment tools.  Why not ask your staff to complete the brief questionnaire? They are free of charge (and obligation) and they only take a moment to fill out. This will enable you to find any gaps learning. 

If you choose to fill in those gaps it may only be a matter of a couple of hours personalised training via Skype. Contact me and I will provide you with a free Skills Assessment for Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint.

I cater my Microsoft Office training to your style of learning

Most people have dark memories of school. Okay so the school system is changing; but in times past it has leaned toward a certain type of learner. You know, the sort of person with a decent sized attention span that can learn quickly from a book or easily memorise before a test. The hands on learners weren’t so fortunate. Maybe you left school feeling good about your skills in dance or woodwork but decided that you weren’t the academic type.

Let’s face it; we all have strengths and we all have weaknesses, but we can be taught almost anything, given that the teacher/trainer adapts to individual styles of learning. When you have a classroom full of students this is a little trickier to do. Which is why I love one-on-one training so much.

Let me explain the reason for all this babble. I can teach you. Yes, you, the one that was kicked out of the classroom for talking or spent most of the day doodling in your notebook. First I will find out how you learn best then I will adapt the training to your needs.

The pre-learning test is offered free of charge and is taken from the book produced by the People Maintenance team. They have over 30 years of combined training experience. You can check out their book here: http://peoplemaintenance.com/training_books.htm

It has lots of excellent information about learning styles, personality types, team building, management and pretty much all things people.

If you would like more information about our courses or the above pre-course test then please send me an email: savvytraining@live.com.au
