Best Resources for Virtual Assistants

This is Part 3 in a series–find Part 1 and Part 2 here.  These are the resources and inspirations that I use for my small (but growing!) virtual assistant business.  Even if you don’t have or even want to be in business these books + websites still have something for you.  If you homeschool your children, the Useletter will have tips you can use to be more productive.  You might even be inspired to create a vision board ala Jenn from Right-Brainers in Business.

Tips + Tools for Becoming a Virtual Assistant

Bootstrap VA

You knew I was going to say this, right?  Lisa’s book threw on lights and opened doors for me.  I can’t recommend her clear, detailed, thoughtful book enough. It’s filled with concrete examples and actions steps.  And when you purchase the book you also gain access to a private Facebook group filled with people who are doing the work!

The Right-Brain Business Plan

I stumbled into the Right-Brainers in Business Conference earlier this year.  There’s a lot of advice on the internet about how to help your business grow, But Jenn’s work is infused with spirit and creativity.  I am slowly and happily working through Right-Brain Business Plan.  It’s nice to let the internet keep on giving advice while I just read and follow Jenn!

I’m taking part in the 52 Weeks to a Better Business Challenge…sort of.  Some weeks, the challenge doesn’t apply, but Sarah and Beth Anne research all the ins and outs and give you concrete ways to solidify your online presence.

And More!


Everyday new resources become available.  It can get easy for me to think that every new idea will be just the thing I need!  I’ve been trying to stick with a few trusted sources and make progress on my goals instead of following the bunny trails.  What about you?  Favorite resources?
