The  pcLearning4U  Newsletter

Welcome to the August 2011 edition of our newsletter!

As many of you know, I started this business to bring personal computer training to people of all ages. In the course of my research, I discovered that many of the people who may be interested in our services are age 40 and older. In particular, such people living independently (as in senior apartment complexes and active-adult communities) seemed very receptive. As a result, over a year ago, I joined the Richmond Senior Network (more on this very valuable group below).

I hope you enjoy this newsletter - please feel free to contact me with any comments and suggestions (I did take a suggestion from a subscriber and increased the font size!)

Richmond Senior Network

On July 12, I attended the most recent meeting of the Richmond Senior Network. As they state on their Home Page, the RSN is "a non-profit organization comprised of professionals serving the seniors industry of Richmond, VA. Meetings are held bi-monthly to give members and guests the opportunity to network with each other & propel collaboration in the Richmond seniors industry.". RSN meetings are usually very well attended. Members consist of people who work for companies and agencies, or own businesses, that serve a wide variety of senior-oriented interests. Membership is very inexpensive - only $25 per year - it's hard to eat out at a reasonably decent restaurant for that!

One very nice feature of being an RSN member is that you can list your information in the RSN directory. This includes company name, address, phone numbers, email address, website, and a short description. This gives you an idea of what others are doing in the industry. Members can also update their directory entries online, which is really good because in this world, information is constantly changing!

Therefore, if you are involved with seniors, I urge you to take a look at the RSN. Please contact me if you have questions.

Other Recent Events

On July 21, I attended the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce's Breakfast With the Pros. The speaker was Kelly Meerbott - she gave a great talk on email marketing.

On May 6, I attended the Chick-Fil-A Leadercast, a simulcast of a presentation from Atlanta by several prominent individuals, some in business, some not. The purpose of the presentation was to inspire the attendees to be better leaders (and to feed us, generously provided by - surprise - Chick-Fil-A !) Most of the speakers were very good.

Thanks as usual to Richmond GATE for your support!
