    PO Boxes

    I use a virtual post office box and love it! They even handle depositing all snail mailed checks for me. Using a PO box (or even a virtual one) also gives you an additional layer of protection so not everyone can find your home address. (safety factor)

    Quickbooks question

    Let me know when you get a chance to see what shows in QB. Most likely payments if I'm understanding what you're saying. :)

    Quickbooks question

    Thanks so much for all of this detail. Can you explain more what "post" and posting is - it seems as though maybe it's being used in multiple contexts? The other question I have is the multiple day stays (that part isn't quite clear above but maybe it's because I don't fully understand...

    Quickbooks question

    Hi Moria, I think I can help you out! I love figuring things like this out and work in QBO day in and day out. Can you give me the info you'd like to see in a report. I know you def. want the memo but also assuming you may want the date, client name, amount, maybe even an invoice number...

    Has anyone used the website FreshBooks?

    Sylana, Freshbooks only gives one free client now. They used to do three. I think it starts at $5.95 after that. There are a lot of benefits to paying them though - especially if you a) want to save money on Paypal fees b) have team members doing work for your clients I go over 10 reasons to...

    Has anyone used the website FreshBooks?

    TMVAS, I'm not sure what Asana's model is anymore - you can work around their "pricing" though by just creating a different workspace for each client if you need the spaces to be private. I believe you can have 30 team members in Asana at no cost.

    Has anyone used the website FreshBooks?

    I love Freshbooks for lots of reasons and wrote a post about it earlier this year. My three favorite features are the time tracking, being able to add team members in so their tracked time flows through to the client invoice (without any extra work on my end) and then my absolute favorite thing...

    Question Anyone know of any VA trainings online?

    Hi there! I'll echo what some of the others have said that you don't need "years" of EA or PA experience. I feel that motivation, persistence, willingness to learn, etc. are all as important or even more important than having a ton of experience. Granted, being savvy with multiple online...

    Details on Jumpstart Course

    Oh....ha ha, I should have realized that. Apparently I was way too tired in the brain last night when I read it. That is one area I do not go into a lot of detail mainly because all of the students I've had are either a) considering becoming a VA and this is exploratory for them b) have been in...

    Details on Jumpstart Course

    VirtualRox, I do go over a fair bit of content/suggestions for on-boarding a new client as well as some resources to use (HelloSign, Asana, etc). I also give my client agreement and my old client contract as templates you can use. I'm a big software junkie so one of the other free downloads...

    Details on Jumpstart Course

    VirtualRox, Sure thing, here you are! The reading assignments for each module correlate to specific page numbers in Tess' ebook (but I don't have those below as the message would be really long but if you want those too, just let me know). There are a number of freebies I give for various...
