A Virtual Perception is a virtual assistant podcast that provides business resources and home based business resources to virtual and home-based entrepreneurs.

Darlene Victoria, the show’s host and producer, provides insightful, friendly and inspiring advice and business resources to the show’s listeners. Done in a talk format, the highlight of A Virtual Perception is the interviews with business professionals who are in all stages of their business development and come from many different business backgrounds and industries.

Previous show topics included Real Estate Virtual Assistance, Podcasting, Inspirational Entrepreneur stories, Business Networking, Marketing tips, Social Media and more. The entire premise of the show is to provide resources to virtual or home-based small business owners  to use in their every day life.

The first episode of A Virtual Perception hit the internet airwaves in June 2008; it was the very first podcast by Darlene Victoria Gonzalez, a multimedia media specialist and owner of True Harmony Media, LLC.

The internet and social media are growing and because of this;  new and exciting ways for individuals to express themselves and share their expertise are presenting themselves every day.  Podcasting is one such way.

Podcasting can be in the form of audio or video. Podcasts are distributed via an RSS feed. RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. Listeners can subscribe to an RSS Feed and then once subscribed have available to them the most current episodes of a podcast. Listeners can listen to (or watch) a podcast on their personal computer or MP3 player, such as an iPod. The great thing about podcasts is listeners can listen to a podcast at any time; when it is most convenient for them.
