Publisher's Summary

Are You Running Your Business or is Your Business Running You?

Virtual Assistant Assistant is the book for entrepreneurs who are looking for a way to take their business to the next level. If you've ever caught yourself thinking there just aren't enough hours in the day, there is a solution. And it won't make you go broke, either. Virtual assistants are essentially telecommuting contractors to your business.

This book tells you everything you need to know about virtual assistants, including:

  • Where to find the best ones
  • How to hire them
  • Best practices for working with them on an ongoing basis
It's written from firsthand experience, NOT theoretical or academic fluff. You'll learn how a talented virtual assistant can help save you time, money, and headache. Take control of your entrepreneurial life and learn how to effectively outsource your non-essential tasks. You'll free up hours every day to focus on what's really important.

In the end, virtual assistants can help you lead a happier, healthier, and more productive and stress-free life. It's possible (and I would argue essential) to unload many aspects of your day-to-day work, leaving you free to tackle the higher-level, strategic, and money-making projects that often get neglected. Time is Our Most Valuable Resource But it's also the resource we are quickest to waste. With this book, you may not achieve the 4 Hour Work Week right away, but you'll get actionable advice on how to get started with outsourcing. The world's most successful people didn't get there alone; they all had help along the way. What are you waiting for? Hit the Buy Now button and get started today.

Best five dollars a new entrepreneur ever spent.

If you don’t spend $5 and a couple of hours to listen to this book, you are already doing everything perfectly in your small business and are certain that nothing you could do could improve your efficiency at all.

What can VAs do for you?

I was looking for a book to help me understand what a virtual assistant can do for my business and how to find and hire a virtual assistant. I also was looking for a some reassurance that I can trust my VAs with some sensitive info like credit card, business secrets, files, payroll, etc. This book was an easy read and gets to the point. It has definitely help me gain some confidence in all of the listed above concerns that I had. It also brought to light more ideas on how to use VAs in business and personal life time consuming tasks. I’m excited to grow using virtual assistance and to free up more time! Hope you get a lot from the book! Cheers!

A good resource

Good info and lots of useful resources. I started listening to this book after hiring a VA company and still found it helpful in many aspects. the key is not to get overwhelmed with what you should do when hiring a VA. just start with a va and then learn as you go.

pretty good but a bit short

I'm not a fan of books that are long just for the sake of length, so this book is short and to the point.
