In the back of the book there are several sample documents listed for you to use for your business that are very helpful. Including, work for hire agreement, client retainer agreement, editorial retainer agreement, confidentially agreement, subcontractor agreement, non-solicitation agreement, and there is even a sample business plan that is short and sweet, which is a great starting point.
I highly recommend this book to anyone starting a VA business. You can't beat the price at $19.95.
Jeannine and Lauren do an excellent job of imparting a surprising amount of rich, meaty information within a relatively small space. "Entrepreneurial Freedom - How to Start and Grow a Profitable Virtual Assistance Practice" is an easy, user-friendly read.
Don't like to read books cover-to-cover? No problem. Jeannine and Lauren make it easy for you to go to the Table of Contents, pick what interests you, and smoothly step into it. The chapters are short, clear, concise, and full of valuable tips and advice. The resource listings and the website guidelines alone are worth the small price of admission.
I highly recommend this fun, comprehensive book. I read it in one sitting, but I'll be referring back to it often, continuing to benefit from it for a long time.
Virtual Assistant, Writer & Proofreader
This guide is small in size but packed with information. Clontz and Hidden begin with a self evaluation section to help readers decide if they have what it takes to be a virtual assistant and small business owner. The guide also goes into detail on business planning, branding, marketing, growing your business and more.
Entrepreneurial Freedom contains an entire chapter on finding, and more importantly, keeping clients. The book discusses tough issues like how to say no to a potential client and how to fire a client.
Of particular interest is the chapter on Ethics. Clontz, an IVAA EthicsCheck(tm) Virtual Assistant, outlines her 3 standard questions for helping anyone make an ethical decision in any situation.
This book contains references and lists pointing you to trusted resources for almost any need for your VA business. While it's small in size (only 166 pages including index), Entrepreneurial Freedom is a trusted resource for any new or established Virtual Assistant's bookshelf.
