From Suits To Sweats: How To Work At Home As A Virtual Assistant was very helpful to me! It was very holistic and covered a broad range of topics. The first part I was able to skim through because it covered types of virtual assistants. I already knew what my niche was. However, the rest of the book was perfect for me to read. In fact, I was a little sorry I hadn’t read it sooner since I’ve already been trying my hand at this type of work. At least I’m better prepared to continue. The book had t...more

I’m so glad I read this book before I got any farther with my own freelance part time business. I already have a full time job but recently was told to look into freelancing my skills on the side. When I found this book I thought I’d give it a try and I’m glad I did. This book started with an introduction to the skills typically used by a virtual assistant and covered all the necessary steps/information through landing my first client and marketing for expansion. I have no idea if I’ll ever expa...more

This book, while short, is packed with great information about everything from the basics (what type of virtual assistant are you?) to the technicalities (what type of business are you and what kind of taxes can you expect?). It gave an overview of all the key aspects of being your own business owner like equipment I’d need, tips for b...more

Paige has been a rabid reader for as long as she can remember. She didn't acquire her two new loves - writing and business - until much later in life. Paige always dreamed of writing Young Adult Fantasy novels (for ages 9 and up).

However it took becoming a victim of corporate downsizing to give her the nudge she needed to go out on her own. Paige took that negative event and turned it into one of...more
