  1. Hello Ayanna,

    My name is Tony Benach. I am a partner in AdminMasterPro (AMP) found at http://www.adminmasterpro.com.

    As we excitingly move towards the soft launch of our mobile based app, AdminMasterPro (AMP), designed specifically for the admin industry, we’ve been in the first stage of beta testing with a handful of admins. AMP will be a very impartial app where millions of admins around the world can find every resource (training, conference, career opportunities, etc) within the admin industry.

    One suggestion we’ve gotten from many test users is adding a source for daily “tips from the pros” in the industry. We’ve recently added a menu titled “tips from the pros”.

    We are currently working with leaders in the industry like yourself for a place to find tips either on your websites, past blogs, etc. We will be updating information daily, finding these tips throughout the industry from the appropriate links. These can be from anytime you’ve ever posted “tips” on doing anything giving guidance to the admin. When we post them, they will be quotes from you along with a link as to where they can find you.

    Also, you will be featured on the app under our “Training” menu as one of the training resources. This web address I am currently on will be the link on the app, unless you want us to post another link location.

    Is there another specific link you can share where we can find tips you’ve given to your audience?

    Thank you in advance, look forward to hearing back from you. Also, can you please respond through your email system so we may correspond via email.

    Tony Benach
