Thanks for some great insight into your world! I am just starting and have a bit of a struggle with the home office thing-but will keep telling myself I could be unemployed!

Nice interview and very inspiring!! I also live in Idaho and I'm trying to start my business. I didn't want to say it, but I feel lost sometimes. I think I have a lot to learn from VAs like you!!

Honestly, I don't think I would have the success I've had without the support I've had. I have a few forums I belong to that I go to on a regular basis for support. I have a few organizations I belong to that I get a lot of support from. Shortly after my business started I got a mentor that was (and still is) invaluable to me and my business.

Don't go it alone...there's really no reason to.

Thank you for your advice and for sharing your story. I think this forum it's great for support, I keep coming back to read about other VA'S and to learn from their experiences. Hopefully I'll be able to contribute with my experience sometime soon.


Thanks!

Lanel,

Great interview!!! You are an inspiration to VA's and you help us to feel at ease with starting a business. Being a VA is a wonderful opporutnity in life and we all go through good and bad times just like when working for a company. Best thing is that you make your own decisions and have nobody to report too.

Great work at finding success!!

What a great interview. These are all things I have wondererd about in my business and it is good to hear these ideas from a successful VA!

I did find it interesting thought that you chose to hire someone directly to help you instead of using a fellow VA. Any experiences you would care to share or suggestions on what to look out for?

Thanks again!

Wonderful and very informative interview, Lanel! I have been away from the forums for a while and just returned. It was wonderful to read your interview. I must say that it is also very timely. I have a friend who is interested in starting her own VA practice and I have forwarded your interview to her. I know she is going to be very encouraged by it!

Congratulations on a great interview! I look forward to networking with and learning from you!

Thanks for a great interview Lanel. I especially appreciate your advice for a new VA and how you structure your days. I can get so distracted by emails & ticklers, so your discipline is a great reminder to stay focused.

Best,
Teri
