TVE Magazine was the brainchild of Andrea Jackson, of Action Jackson VA as an ezine dedicated to assisting virtual entrepreneurs. The first issue of TVE Magazine, the September 2009 issue, was published on September 15, 2009 as a monthly publication under the name of The Virtual Entrepreneur. TVE Magazine remained focused on virtual entrepreneurs/virtual assistants until April, 2010.
Lily Chambers of The Virtual Office Goddess, LLC came on board as the assistant editor of TVE Magazine starting with the November, 2009 issue. During March, 2010, Ms. Jackson had a series of complicated dental surgeries and, due to the lengthy healing process, decided to stop publishing the magazine. Ms. Chambers took over ownership of TVE Magazine 1 week prior to the release of the April, 2010 issue.
Shortly after obtaining ownership of TVE Magazine, Ms. Chambers received a ‘cease and desist’ letter from Entrepreneur Media, Inc (owners of Entrepreneur Magazine) claiming that EMI owned the name “Entrepreneur” and it could no longer be part of TVE’s name. In response, Ms. Chambers held a ‘name-change’ contest with her readers and subsequently renamed TVE to The Virtual Evolution Magazine beginning with the June/July issue of TVE Magazine.
TVE Magazine became a bi-monthly publication starting with the April/May 2010 issue and began to change its focus toward all types of entrepreneurs under the new ownership. TVE Magazine resumed being a monthly publication effective with the October, 2010 issue.
For any enterprise to survive it must, at the very least, be self-sustaining. Unfortunately, The Virtual Evolution Magazine was not, due to the lack of a sufficient writing staff. Therefore, the April, 2011 issue was the final one. I would like to express my appreciation and thanks to all of the volunteer staff that shared their time and knowledge since the inception of TVE. I have published the archives here as a service to the Virtual Assistant community and entrepreneurs everywhere. I believe that the knowledge maintained in these archives is as valuable now as it was when it was first published.
