Virtual Assistant Industry Still a Top Choice for A Work-at-Home Career

O’Fallon, IL (October, 2010)– What do Apple Computer, Ebay, and Mattel Toys all have in common? They all began as home-based businesses. In fact, according to a recent report at the Business Gov website, it’s estimated that over half of all U.S. businesses are based out of the owner’s home. Included in this statistic is the virtual assistant (VA) industry, whose growth over the past several years has continued on a steady, rising path.

The popularity of the VA industry has been fueled by downward economic trends that have left our younger generation with little or no financial plan, and our aging adults with a retirement “nest egg” that is significantly smaller than they had anticipated. This turn of economic events has left many families, young and old, struggling to make ends meet. That is why working from home as a virtual assistant has proven to be an excellent solution for those facing financial challenges.

The problem is finding out how to become a virtual assistant. Many are finding the support they need with the assistance of Virtual Assistant The Series: Become a Highly Successful, Sought After VA http://www.VA-TheSeries.com, one of the leading entrepreneurial books on the subject. This thoughtful, well-prepared book is the perfect guide for office managers, executive assistants, and other administrative support professionals looking to make the transition from employee to successful business owner. Virtual Assistant The Series is considered by many to be the “bible” of the VA industry, and has been recently released in its 4th edition, continuing to be the longest-standing book of its kind in the industry.

The authors of the book, Kelly Poelker and Diana Ennen stated: “We are proud to have assisted so many entrepreneurs in achieving success in their VA business, and look forward to helping many more with this updated edition. Our 4th edition includes new sections covering the latest trends in technology, public relations, social media, and so much more. It’s also loaded with tips and insights from other leaders in the VA industry, who openly share their knowledge and wisdom.”

While the book on its own is a complete guide to becoming an independent owner of a virtual assistant business, there is also a companion workbook available. The Virtual Assistant-The Series Workbook offers exercises that go along with every chapter of the book to strengthen the learning experience, and together they form an unparalleled training tool.

Virtual Assistant-The Series: Become a Highly Successful, Sought After VA, 4th Edition Revised, ($32.95) is available at leading online bookstores everywhere, or visit http://www.VA-TheSeries.com for direct orders.

About the Authors: Diana Ennen and Kelly Poelker are the authors of Virtual Assistant-The Series: Become a Highly Successful, Sought After VA (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th editions), and its companion workbook edition. They are also co-authors of numerous other books related to working from home, and the VA industry.
