In last week’s blog post I talked about how you can build a 6-figure virtual assistant business.
Members of my community had some really good questions regarding that post that I’d like to cover below.
Some of those questions are:
- Where can I find top quality talented virtual assistants that will allow me to be able to make a profit?
- What are the skill sets that I should be vetting out?
- What is the ideal situation for my multi-virtual assistant business? Should I interface with all the clients as the project manager or should I allow my VAs to interact directly with each client, leaving me out of the day-to-day?
Check out my video below to get the scoop and leave me a comment below with any questions you have! The more questions, the better! I often look to your comments as inspiration for future blog posts!

Thank you so much for this information. This certainly help me and I know it will help someone else. Have a prosperous day!
Reese, so happy with the positive news for your little miss:)
Thanks for the Vlog… You have had me intrigued since your last post about starting a multiple VA business, and I have added this to my long term goal. I still will be wanting to do some stuff myself, but I like the idea of sharing opportunities with others as well.
Reese, I love this video- you’re always so inspirational. I’m trying hard to network now- I’m on a quest to find some talented VAs to work with. Thanks for the suggestions…I’m definitely going to hit up LinkedIn.
Sarah my blonde bombshell, thank you for always making me smile! Go and network on LinkedIn! It’s where I did all my networking. I love networking my pants off while sitting at home in my pjs! Hey, aren’t you going to have this baby soon or what? 🙂
Interesting blog post, thank you for that.
I have a couple of quick questions if you have time please: do you put a contract in place between your company and the VA’s you outsource to and if so, does it contain a clause about not ‘poaching’ your clients to work with them directly? Does the clause have a time limit?
Thanks so much for any insight on this.
Kelly, thank you for reading! You should have a contract between your sub-contractors and include a clause about poaching clients. There is absolutely no difference between a client contract between you and your clients and a contract between you and your sub-contractors. The clause should cover costs that you incur to find the client which would include time spent marketing, time spent on client intake, time spent training your VA, etc. I would put a 2 year time limit for this clause and the clause is relevant for both the client and the virtual assistant so both would be penalized should they violate your contract. Good luck!
I am of bringing on my family because,1) I have an awesome sales Professional that knows how to get to the C-level decision makers, that I am married to and recently got laid off.
2) A sister who is already a contractor and does training of software to finance companies and I think she would be awesome to bring on.
Is this a recipe for disaster because it is family?
Nanette, they say never mix family and friends with business but that said my husbands start-up company is run by him, his brother and their financial and HR director is their sister! Whoa! Yes, things can get hairy from time to time when you mix family and business but as long as it works go for it. Just set up clear boundaries and expectations from the beginning.
This is a process to build a business. I have a client who is just giving me the run around. I don’t want to make my client the run around but I need to know what’s going to happen.
