  1. Kathy, I'm not certain what version it is. I am, however, beginning to wonder about it's compatibility. It was downloaded from an .au website and the confirmation email makes several references to Quicken?? I'm unable to locate another trial version for download and I don't have time to wait for a disc. In any event, I need to figure out how to get this done otherwise I'll end up eating hours worth of my billing time. So..... 1. The trial is looking for a .QWA file. Can someone tell me the difference? 2. She's already provided me with a portable company file, if I'm not mistaken. Isn't that the .QBM file? 3. I would be happy to provide her with explicit instructions on exporting her data to an excel file. Unfortunately I don't have quickbooks and I don't know how to use it. Are there any quickbooks experts who could provide these instructions for me?
  2. Thanks Kathy & Sherra for your responses...... Sherra, I need to import her client billing files. Kathy, I mispoke......I have the Quickbooks Accounting for Small Business trial. Is there a difference? When I attempt to open the .QBM file, I receive a message stating the file "isn't a quickbooks data file or the file is damaged." My client doesn't seem to understand the difference between "exporting" and "saving" so I'm hoping to find a solution which involves very little action from her end.
  3. Hello, All! I'm in desperate need of assistance......I've taken on a new legal billing client who's currently using quickbooks pro 2006. I need her data exported to a format I can then import into Timeslips - a text file, tab or comma delimited. Is this possible? She provided me with a .QBB data file and a .QBM data file, both of which I attempted to open with the trial version of the 2008 version with no success. I know NOTHING about QuickBooks . Do I have any other options aside from manually creating a database? Thanks in advance! Kirstie
  4. HUGE Congrats, Brianna! Best of luck.....I briefly took a look at the site and it looks like an awesome venture.
  5. A day (or two) late, a dollar short but here's my anyway: Yes, it is very discouraging to think of someone undercutting your opportunities in that manner but to me, it doesn't matter to which country, state, city or VA the work is outsourced. It's all about the quality. If the quality isn't there the relationship isn't going to last and that's one more job open to me. If someone can produce the same caliber of service for that much less than I can then I either need to 'step up my game' as they say, target a niche not available to them or find another line of work. Yes, we are (hopefully) here to do the work for which we have a passion but we also must be realistic....if there's no more work to be had at rates we need to survive (and this I seriously doubt will ever come to pass) then we move on. To paraphrase Ros, we all gotta eat!
  6. I'm so happy for you!! Congratulations, Carrie!! Well done!!
  7. It's not from me! I'm still behind on my to-do list! If you click on "My Controls" located in the toolbar midway down the page, on the left you'll see your message menu. I'm getting there!! I know that I'll be getting ready for my son's birthday party that week so I don't think that will work for me so I'll probably miss the big get-together but perhaps something else can be arranged even if it's just 2 or 3. Kirstie
  8. Ronelle, thanks for the email. I'll PM you! Crystal, what part of Mass? I grew up in the Berkshires. It would be great for all of us to get together. Ronelle brought to my attention that my new signature doesn't include my name so..... Kirstie
  9. Hi Ronelle! I'm from Connecticut as well.....Northwest corner. And you're right.....our state is no more than 2 hours long border to border!!
  10. Hi Jennifer......I don't think this is meant to be a press release. This appears to be an announcement of services.
  11. I also put up a profile!! Just trying to get my name out there!
  12. John & Jennifer - point well taken. I see what you mean. I'll have to give it some thought. Thank you!!
  13. I've been MIA for a bit but my son and I have finally agreed on a schedule of sorts so I've had some time to focus on promoting my business. So...........here is the first draft. Not as easy as you all make it look!! FYI: I plan to promote locally and on the web. My next task is to assemble all the local newspaper info! FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE A Cost-Effective Solution for local Small Businesses Contact: Kirstie Freimuth Phone: 860-921-5658 Email: info@XpressAssistant.com URL: www.XpressAssistant.com Litchfield, CT – March 20, 2007 Kirstie Freimuth has recently launched Xpress Assistant, a service to help local businesses and entrepreneurs thrive! The problem faced by many small business owners is twofold: there are not enough hours in the day to handle all the responsibilities that come with owning a business and hiring a staff can be costly. Enter Xpress Assistant (http://www.XpressAssistant.com), a member of the fast-growing industry known as Virtual Assistants. A virtual assistant (VA) is defined as a highly skilled, professional, independent contractor who provides administrative and creative services to businesses and individuals anywhere in the world on an as-needed basis utilizing today’s technology. It’s the job of a VA to deal with those responsibilities that the business owner, for whatever reason, cannot. So why hire a virtual assistant instead of an employee? The bottom line is reason enough. The average base salary for an administrative assistant is upwards of $30,000.00 per year. Add to that the additional 30% that is employee related expenses – taxes, insurance, bonuses – and you’re looking at a rather costly expenditure. A virtual assistant is paid only for the time worked, saving your business thousands of dollars per year. According to Freimuth, an additional benefit of a VA is the range and level of their skills. With over 15 years of experience, Freimuth provides a wealth of services from the more common administrative tasks to the more specialized such as legal billing and basic web site design. “To speak frankly, it’s my goal to help my clients make money and look good,” says Freimuth. “I’ve seen so many small businesses fail despite the quality of their service or product and I’d like to remedy that. I can provide the skills that they or their staff might be missing and I can handle those administrative duties they just don’t have time for. My services allow them the freedom to do what they do best - and I can do it all from my own office which reduces overhead costs for my clients.” You don’t have to be a business owner to take advantage of a virtual assistant. Like many other virtual assistants, Xpress Assistant also offers Personal Assistant services such as appointment scheduling, travel arrangements – even a reminder service! “Everyone can use a little help,” says Freimuth. “Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, a working mother or a busy executive.” Virtual assistants operate on a schedule geared to their clients needs and most provide flexible billing options – by the hour, by the project or monthly retainer- meaning that there’s a solution available for everyone.
