I retired 3 years ago after 30+ years of administrative assistant experience to agency and dept. executives. I recently started working part-time as a VA. I don't want to work more than 20-25 hours a week. I have two clients that I got thru a social encounter with one of them. They are both new at establishing their speaking/teaching businesses. I didn't know at the time what rate to charge or what they wanted from me - neither did they really. Things just grew over the past 3 months. My rate is $12/hour. But I find they want more specific time consuming work from me - research, contacting guests, venues, updating web pages, emails, etc. They both would like it if I worked10-20/hrs. a week. I felt I should be asking at least $18 an hour. I am willing to work 20 hours for one client but not both. How do I drop one? First reaction from one of them when I mentioned the increated rate and max. 10 hours was that it was a huge leap (it is) and that she wasn't sure yet if she would need me for 10 or 20 hours. I know I didn't do my homework before starting to work. I think I have created a nightmare out of what was to be my dream job. Please help!!!
