The virtual assistant industry has enjoyed a healthy growth rate since its inception in the '90s but recently it has been growing by leaps and bounds, and for good reason:
* The economic turndown and downsizing is causing people to look for alternate methods to generate income
* The ease of entry into the virtual assistant industry
* Minimal start-up costs
* The many and varied resources available
* Attractive income potential
* FREEDOM from cubicle nation and the 9 to 5 grind!
This can only translate into great things for our industry, such as an increased global awareness of Virtual Assistants and the benefits this offers to a VA entrepreneur entering our industry.
This is not a how-to book, but rather its purpose is to share stories of some of the leading Virtual Assistants in the industry today. We include VAs who have not only found continued success by building strong reputations as excellent service providers, but those who also enjoy mentoring, and who strongly advocate the business of being virtual.
Each contributor has their own unique experience as a VA, and gives tips and sage advice about what they have found works for the success of their businesses. In encapsulated form, each story is a mere snapshot of the hours, weeks, months, and years each VA has dedicated to their passion, showing their commitment to continually excel and learn as they grow their businesses.
No matter what level your VA business has reached, sharing and learning from others is one of the best ways to enhance your knowledge and experience. As with anything in life, your business requires proper daily care and feeding to grow and flourish. And we trust the information in this book will provide you with some new information and ideas to integrate and develop as you continue to move forward.

I see this book was published in 2009 and I think it's a shame that I am the first to review this book. Surely other Canadian business people are even remotely curious about this amazing industry.
My recommendation: read this book. It's definitely worth it and will help you understand better the whole concept of the virtual assistant industry.
