  1. I would love to hear what Donna has to say about pricing. I'm nervous to raise my rates, I'm tired of tracking every minute and I'm sick of not getting paid for my true value or worth. I'm also tired of handing out discounts for my services. My feeling lately is - why should I? I'm providing a much needed service to lawyers who think nothing of charging $300/hour. I literally work day and night but my bank account doesn't show much. Please let me know how I can obtain a copy of Donna's presentation. Thank you!
  2. Thank you Patti and Michelle. Michelle, I will be in touch to get more information from you. Sounds like a great program. Lynn
  3. Hello fellow VAs, I was looking for information on VA Subcontractors and stumbled upon the VA Intern Program but it looks like it's been discontinued. Is this true? Does anyone have suggestions on where to find a similar program? Thank you, Lynn
  4. Hello VAs!!! I need to purchase an all-in-one printer for a client and I'm looking for suggestions. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Happy 4th of July! Lynn
  5. Hi Tawyna. Timeslips is a time-tracking software program that many attorneys use (in the US at least). The client and I met yesterday and we figured it out. As usual, I was over-thinking things and second-guessing myself. Thank you so much for your help!!
  6. Good morning VAs!! I have a client who would like me to handle her billing. She uses Timeslips. I've looked around Timeslips but never actually used it. I'm not worried about learning it - I just need to know how I would go about doing her billing for her virtually. Do I buy Timeslips and have her submit her time to me or is there a remote way of entering time and generating invoices? I tried calling Timeslips but I was on hold for a long time and I need to get back to work. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
  7. Hi Maryanne! I use Harvest and I absolutely love it!!!! It's simple and easy yet packs a powerful punch. Lynn
  8. Hello All! I'm researching VPN services and wanted to get feedback on who is using a VPN, which service provider you are using, what the cost is, and your thoughts on how it is working for you. My client and I work in Amicus Attorney however, I am not able to upload documents or emails to client files due to Amicus not being cloud-based. We're trying to find an easy and inexpensive solution to the problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Lynn
  9. Thanks Patty!!! I'll forward that along to my client and hopefully we'll be up and running on the mailing!!!
  10. Hello All! I'm working on a mailing for a new client who uses Outlook 2007. I plan on doing a mail merge with her contacts. What is the best way for me to gain access to her contacts? I thought it would be easy enough for her to just save the contacts group and email it to me but, after 2 hours of searching and trying to figure out an easy way, I can't seem to come up with an easy solution. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I use Outlook 2010 (if that matters). As always - thanks much!!! Lynn
  11. I use Harvest and I absolutely love it!!! It's simple yet has everything you need. It costs $12/mo. for a solo membership and the support is excellent!!! www.getharvest.com Lynn
  12. I love every reply to my post. I am always so humbled by this forum and how we VAs come to the rescue immediately upon request (or distress) and yet, we're complete strangers! I really don't know where I would be without you. Thank you so much! I'm going to print out this entire thread and come up with a plan. Lynn
  13. Dana - I would love to talk with you regarding this! Please let me know when you're available. Thank you, Lynn
  14. I love both replies. Thank you so much for your insights. I'm going to feel positive about at least getting a response from her and not mention my rates at all in my reply. I'll feel her out when we speak next week and go from there. I'll keep you posted. Lynn
  15. Hello All!!! I started my business in March of this year and I'm excited to say things are finally picking up. Last week, I met with a wonderful attorney who was unexpectedly laid off from a firm that closed it's doors over the summer. She is trying to re-establish herself and her new firm (she had her own firm before she took the previous job). She has no assistance whatsoever and is really falling behind with clients, emails, phone calls, etc. We discussed many ways in which I would be able to take the burden off her shoulders so she could practice law and leave early to take care of her children. I would love the opportunity to help her. She sent me an email last night saying she wanted me to know that she wasn't ignoring me but has been swamped with work and seminars and she would look over my information over the holiday weekend and get back to me soon. I don't know how to take that response. Before I respond to her email, I wanted to get feedback on whether I should work with her on rates, etc. as I know she's still in the start-up phase. I know she'll quickly see the benefits of having a VA - I just don't want her to find someone else who's rates are cheaper. I don't want to come off as being desperate - I just honestly would love to help her in any way I can. Your thoughts and feedback would be greatly appreciated. Lynn
