    How many clients do you have?

    Yes, figure out how many billable hours you can charge for first. This will tell you how many client hours you could have. For example most VAs will spend 10-15 hours a week marketing, bookkeeping and doing other administrative work for their own business. If you are going to put 40 hours a week into your business then that only leaves you 25-30 hours you can bill out. Times that by 4 and it gives you how many billable hours you'd have a month. let's say 100 billable hours. Now that shows you could have 5 clients at 20 hours per month each. Or 2 clients at 40 hours each and 1 at 10 hours. Make sense?

    Business Name Ideas!

    I like them all and would love to hear the stories behind each choice. Have you checked if these are available domain names yet?

    Hi Ericka and welcome to our networking boards. I'm looking forward to seeing your new business bloom this year and any questions you have just ask us. First, I suggest you signin to your member lounge and watch the video on Becoming a VA. As for having a website, yes that will be a priority for you (it is your storefront). If you do it yourself here are some Wordpress resources to get you started. If you want help creating it, we offer website packages here and/or if you invest in my VAC training program we design your site for you. In the meantime, until you get your website up at the very least put your Linkedin profile together. You can use that as your storefront until your website is done. Where do you live? Once you tell us that we can direct you to a website in your state/province to get your business operating. There is also a startup checklist inside your member area to keep you organized and give you steps to get up and running. Any other questions, ask us

    Billable vs. Non Billable

    $30 divided by 4 = $7.50 so that means a 45-minute job would be 3 X $7.50 = $22.50

    Billable vs. Non Billable

    I bill out in 15-minute increments which means if I worked on a project for 20 minutes then I'd bill 30 minutes. If I worked on a project for 10 minutes then I bill for 15 minutes. Hope that makes sense? This allows for refocusing between billable timeslots if you are switching between clients. Any time I am working on clients work is billable time for me.
