Publisher's Summary

An amazing two-in-one book bundle!

Do you have an interest in becoming a virtual assistant?

Then this book has your name written all over it!

Why are people getting crazy over the idea of starting a virtual assistant business? First, there's convenience of staying at home with your family. Second, you will become your own boss.

  • Qualifications of a VA
  • Common niches
  • Tips in setting up your office
  • How to find your client, including tips in writing a pitch

Take a Leap of Faith and Start a Photography Business

This book will guide you in starting your own photography business; it's truly an advantage if you are a photographer by profession, but if not, it doesn't mean that you could not open your own business. I can help you get the ball rolling.

I know that starting a photography business - any business, in fact - is not a walk in the park. It's also not roses and rainbows; there will be difficulties along the way and maybe at one point you might even think of quitting. Lower your chances of being discouraged by being equipped - one way to do that is to listen to, savor, and finish this book.

Here are a few things you will learn from this book:

  • The four main markets you should choose from in starting a photography business
  • A list of the investments you should make, including tips and tricks; this includes camera, lighting, backdrops, etc.
  • How do you legalize your business? What about licenses? Permits? Taxes? What is LLC?
  • A step-by-step guide on how you can promote your business
  • Should you declare copyright on your photos?
  • Best printers according to reviewers
  • What you need to include when creating a contract
  • How will you encourage your clients to leave reviews?
  • Analyzing your business and "stalking" your competition
  • And a whole lot more!

    "A good business guide"

    It's written to fit anyone's personal situation and filled with so many unique ideas that if you just follow what it says, there's no reason why you can't be out finding a client base immediately. Thank you Russel. It's one thing to know how to make great photographs, but it's another to know how to start/run a business. This book will help me with that! This is a extremely informative book. I am a virtual assistant but I will add it to my resource list for potential clients. It is an awesome introduction for anyone who is new to working with a virtual assistant. Looking forward to the future now.

    "I loved this book and the information provided"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/A


    Which character – as performed by Dave Wright – was your favorite?

    Dave Wright was steady and clear when he narrated this audiobook.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book and the information provided. Nick does a GREAT job of breaking down the phases and steps to hiring a Virtual Assistant AND provides great tips on how you the hiring manager should prepare prior to hiring. I looked at the internet for simple tips and tricks that I can apply on my camera. I saw this book while looking for guides in photography. I learned that this kind of business is a little expensive based on this book but it is a good investment someday. This book taught what to do and what I need in this kind of business.
    Excellent!!! Nick has opened my eyes to a whole new world of managing my personal and professional business.

    "Awesome bundle Gave me hope.."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Start a Business: 2 Manuscripts to be better than the print version?

    I haven't gotten the print version but the audiobook version is too good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Start a Business: 2 Manuscripts?

    Lower your chances of being discouraged by being equipped - one way to do that is to listen to, savor, and finish this book. a large part of the book to way an entrepreneur can sensibly take charge of business and the virtual assistant relationship. The leadership people I've worked with have been other virtual assistants as a subcontractor.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    N/A


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    The author wins all five stars for me in other similar reviews because he devotes. You can also earn money as you sleep with passive income if you set up your online business right. It's on the world wide web so it's noon somewhere on Earth. If you're ready to take the first step into the cut throat world of business competition, read this book for the correct ammunition. He even tells you what an LLC is (Limited Liability Company)).

    "Simple and helpful advice!"

    This book covers all the basics of starting a photography business. It first helps explain the different types of businesses you can run. It then goes into all the equipment you will need depending on how you structure your business (ie. If you have ppl to a studio, just cover events, etc.). I particularly enjoyed the price breakdown of all the equipment. Great for beginning VAs. A lot of helpful suggestions and mentoring based on the Russell Davis experiences. Also a much more modern view than many of the breadth of skills and assignments for VAs. We are not "just clerical workers"!

    "Great Business advice"

    Advice that is timeless and actionable. Author stresses focus on people and profit which is the best advice a business can have. I actually applied some of Brian's instructions into my job and harvested profitable results with my teams, customers, workflow, processes, procedures, and strategies. This book tells you everything you need to know about virtual assistants, including where to find the best ones, how to hire them, and best practices for working with them on an ongoing basis. Great guide and easy to understand!

Many people are afraid to do online, and are unsafe in dealing with website and blogg. Here you will learn how to build your own website and blogg, how and where to find customers, and much more what you need to deal Virtual Assistant. Good luck! I would really recommend this book to anyone.

    "AWESOME BUNDLE"

    A business plan is very important and we have to make sure that the plan is as concise as can possibly be, while at the same time ensuring that you do not miss any of the important details. If you’re going to be showing that plan of yours to an investor, you really do need to trim all that fluff because it will only deter them from the process of reading it. So keep it to the point and simple. This book helps in taking the step forward in setting up a successful business.
