Hello to All:

 

Here’s a little about me: I am married mother of 2, tired of layoffs and downsizing. I have supported high level executives, managed offices, ran a tutor mentor program, for over 12 years now. Unfortunately, administration is normally the first on the budget chopping block. I’ve decided to only offer my services to small businesses and entrepreneurs who cannot afford staff.

 

I'm still deciding on my business name, I'm between "excellence without excuses" and "savvy solutions"..

 

Business wise: I have a few potential clients, folks who are waiting for me to get my business launched, which motivates me tremendously that they have so much faith in me. I’ve completed 2 small projects, and I’m working FT as a contractor while awaiting my next client opportunity.

 

There is free money [grant] waiting for me as soon as I finish my business plan [i'm getting stuck on narrowing my target market, and laying out the start up costs]

 

Lastly, I want to find every legal tax deduction possible as I establish my new office in my home and move forward with my new business!

 

So I'm in research mode with a partially finished business plan, financial constraints due to the recession, and financial need which is why I must continue to take work as it comes.

 

So, feel free to chime in. I'd love to hear everyone's MUST READ selections as I'm very into books. I'm currently reading the art of the start by robert kiyowaski..

Welcome Randa,

 

Sounds like you are a good planner! My advice is to read back on past forum posts for areas you have questions on. Best of Luck!

Hi and welcome!

 

My #1 suggestion for the very new VA starting out is Entrepreneurial Freedom - How to Start and Grow a VA Practice. If you are still setting up (and even if not) my #1 suggestion is Virtual Assistant - The Series: Become a Highly Successful, Sought After VA

 

There's more listed in the VA shop - located at http://www.virtualassistantshop.com/books/index.htm
