    Trying to establish my niche

    I have been thinking about it and have decided my niche is coaches and health & wellness, it just makes sense, they are very similar with similar needs. I am a health coach myself and the clients I work with while not strictly health & wellness are into some sort of coaching/consulting business.

    In what way does your client send all your tasks?

    Very interesting thread, am curious now about Basecamp. I have 2 clients and they each have assigned me a company email account which makes keeping them separate very easy. I also speak with one 2x a week and the other every other week, that helps to clarify and tasks that need to get done.

    Set Time Frames and On Call?!

    I am curious to see what happened (or didn't) with this client. I don't have a lot of clients and so block out times I work for them. They know the days that I am around and available and we have our calls scheduled. The one time I received an unscheduled call it was urgent and prefaced with an...

    Experienced VAs - How many hours can you work?

    I am curious about the packages that people offer. Lisa you gave some examples and I am curious what others do. Also what happens if you are under or over the hours that the client paid for in the package, do you reconcile the following week/month? How do you feel this benefits your business? TIA

    Question What % of Virtual Assistants are Full Time?

    I work part-time as a VA I am also a Health Coach and a dietetics student. Since my background is as an EA it was a logical step for me to do VA work while in school and building my other business. If there was a way I can make both work together I would love to do that.

    Question IPhone or Android?

    I like using my iphone & ipad, however, the apps I have downloaded are probably all available for android too. I think whichever you decide as long as it's a smartphone can work well on the road.
