September 2012 Jet Set Live! - Why You Should Pay A Premium For Your VA

Some people want to conduct a number crunching exercise to really see if it is worthwhile from a purely financial point of view to engage a virtual assistant, instead of an in-house employee. Invariably they will find that there are savings to be made, but they should nevertheless be willing to pay a premium to work with the VA anyway. In addition to the freedom and flexibility, understand that the VA will always be on top of his or her respective game, as they simply have to do so to remain competitive in that business.

1. Choosing Which Payment Option Is Best For You When Hiring A VA. (538 words)
2. Online Payments, How To Pay Your VA. (533 words)
3. The Pros And Cons Of Hiring From ‘People For Hire’ Sites. (513 words)

Major Update - Changes To The Flight Deck and FREE Mentorship

When I first started The VA Passport I used to do LIVE Q and A sessions as a group via a live broadcast. Not everyone feels comfortable discussing their issue within a group, and a lot of our members are scattered around the world, which makes it difficult to arrange a “one time suits all” session, so the live group sessions have been replaced with private one-on-one calls with Michelle. Don’t worry! You can still access all the previous group sessions via this membership site.

The calls are part of a new Mentorship Programme available on the blog, click here for further information.

If you’re already a member and you would like to take advantage of the FREE monthly mentorship calls - click here to schedule one today! (You must be logged in).
