The first event was the question posted on my Facebook Fan page, and the second event was a post on my VA Apprentice forum from one of the members who is in the beta testing of the course – we have recently completed Module 6, and the 7th and final module goes live on Monday. As part of the course we fully implement a new website for each member, and go through the step-by-step process of how to develop a VA business, as quickly as possible. Well, I am pleased to say that along with several other successes with the members, the forum post at the end of this article really hit home for me when I think back to what I was hoping to achieve as a mentor.

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

I received a comment over the weekend on one of my blog posts which was from a fellow virtual assistant, and she was asking me a really brilliant question, “What I’d really like to know though, is how many hours do you average nowadays?
