I am a virtual assistant (VAs) who hires virtual assistants to work with me. I will tell you that the author of this book, Patty Dost from Time is of the Es-Cents, is one of my VAs, so I might be a little biased, but I found this book to be dead-on. I see it time and again…someone decides to be a VA and wants to work for other VAs, but goes about it all wrong. They give up and quit because they aren’t doing the research.

Patty’s book should be required reading for anyone that wants to work as subcontractor or as part of a team with a multi-VA firm. There’s a reason Patty is successful at getting hired on a long-term basis with other VAs – she knows what she’s doing and she’s shrewd with her “marketing.” She gives a lot of her “secrets” in here.

Because Patty does have the inside scoop on being the VA’s VA, she tells you why she’s been successful at it and what you can do to follow along in her footsteps. I like that she keeps it short and very matter-of-fact. Looking to subcontract with other VAs? This is the book to read!

If I have any criticism, I would say that it was too short (under 40 pages). I hope that she writes a follow-up talking more about temperament and interacting within a team with a team leader. It is my opinion that it takes someone very special (like Patty) to be able to work within a team and deal with people like me – I get so busy that I literally throw things at Patty randomly in email. She has the ability to remain calm and untangle whatever I’m talking about and just deal with it with little to no questions. THAT takes almost a mind reader.

Patty is a ROCKSTAR. She has been an integral part of my team since 2007 and is now my Senior Project Leader. When I send a project to Patty, I consider it done. She’s a joy to work with and is a true leader on my team.

Patty shares a lot of wisdom in her The VAs VA ebook. She is spot on with her assessment of Multi-VA firm owners’ needs. If you are considering becoming a VAs VA, you need this book. Even if you already are a VAs VA, you will still glean valuable insight. Patty outlines what every VAs VA needs to know.

I bought the VA’s VA book, wondering what working for other VAs would be about. Little did I know that this book was really going to be about me! I have never met you, but I felt like this book was written about me! I had never thought about being a VA’s VA until I read your book. Once I read it and considered that I could earn an income, not have to market my business out to the world and could still do what I know and love… well! That was exactly what I was looking for and once started to think that way, I started to see opportunities! I am now subcontracted to a VA company as their Virtual Event Specialist and am enjoying all of the benefits you described in your book. It really laid it out clearly what the pros and cons are and what type of person you need to be. Thank-you so much for putting this information out there and for making me aware of another way to do business.

I am also changing the focus and target of my business to work for VAs and thinking about subcontracting for my business down the line. I will recommend this to anyone who is in the VA world.
