    Potential Clients

    Oh no, maybe I wasn't clear. I in no way give away my time for free. My trial is basically a 30 day no contract obligation, but it is paid! Janine - thank you for the helpful information. It is greatly appreciated. And while I do realize that I don't want every client I think starting out...

    Greeting from Big D

    Good afternoon everyone! I recently started my own VA business as a paralegal in Dallas. It's something I have contemplated for years and just received all my LLC paperwork back this week! I am extremely excited about this new adventure and can't wait to learn from those that have gone...
