Achieving Financial Zen in your Business

Many entrepreneurs are wary of the financial aspects of running a business. They often feel overwhelmed by the terminology; by all the things they think they need to do. Sometimes they’re afraid – afraid it will be complicated; afraid they’ll get it wrong; afraid to admit they don’t really understand it all. They dread tax filing time. They put off paying invoices. They don’t always know what their cashflow situation is or even if their business is really profitable. This presentation highlights some of the key pain points and offers tips on how to overcome them. You’ll leave with a better understanding of:

  • The key accounting concepts
  • The essential records you need to keep
  • The importance of bank reconciliations
  • How to monitor cashflow
  • The value of producing and analyzing reports

Pricing/Rates – Retainers – Packages & Projects

One of the most challenging aspects of running a Virtual Assistance practice whether you’ve been in business for 10-days or 10-years. Articles, teleseminars, webinars, whatever the format, VAs continually seek support and new ideas in the area of rates and profitability. Women in this industry are especially vulnerable to the thought of raising prices, much less how it affects their business, clientele, and the ability to create a profitable business that yields an incredible income. Whether you want to keep your business a small, one-person operation, or grow to a multi-VA practice, this session will provide you with all the latest options for making sense of how your rates – retainers – and packages can make a huge difference in the success and growth of your practice. In this session you’ll learn:

  • How rates, services, and approach to pricing, impacts your client base.
  • How to set rates for profit, or develop discounts for retainers (and are they required).
  • What are packages, why should we consider them, and how they benefit our business and our clients?
  • Should you promote rates and costs on your website?
  • How often should you increase pricing?
  • Will you lose business/clients in changing the way you price your services?
  • How to respond/approach costs when interviewing prospects

Client Retention Strategies of Top VAs

At some point in her career, every virtual assistant has asked, “How can I get more clients.” It’s the most frequent question new and even established VAs ask of me, and the problem is, it’s precisely the wrong question to ask. Instead, you need to be asking, “How can I keep the clients I have?” Happy clients:

  • Refer others
  • Gladly offer you a pay raise
  • Send more work your way
  • Ensure you have a reliable, consistent income from month to month

Of course, keeping clients happy isn’t difficult, but to reach rock-star VA status (and the rates that go with it) it helps if you have a plan. In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How to position yourself as a partner in your clients’ business, rather than just a task doer
  • How to expand your skill set so you can increase your rates
  • How to realistically plan your day and your week so everything gets done
  • How – and why – to say no to a new project
  • Plus, how to quickly fill the gaps when you do need to add a new client or two to your roster

Never Let Your Clients Forget You! How To Keep Your Brand In Their Face (Politely)

If you build WordPress websites for clients, you know that previous clients are the best people to work for because they already know the quality of your work.

In fact, the website you just handed over can be the perfect vehicle to keep your brand in front of them at all times. In this webinar, I’ll share exactly how to do that. Few people talk about this.

  • Jaime-Ann Laidlaw:

    The amount of information I have received for such a small investment is insane! The notes and tips I took away from the seminars are priceless! If you are a VA it should be a no-brainer to attend this week long event!

    Don’t miss this event you will potentially lose new opportunities!!

  • Dana Williams:

    I’m really excited about this teleseminar series. There was a similar v.a. teleseminar offered recently that I really wanted to attend, but the price was a little too much for my budget. I am really thankful to Tawnya for offering a “budget friendly” teleseminar for v.a.’s.

    Kudos to you!

  • Melinda Hamby:

    I learned so much from these seminars. These women are awesome to learn from! I knew some, but the information I received in these classes have really inspired me to do even more.

  • Patty Passalacqua:

    I’ve enjoyed each and every webinar so much so far this week and I’m sure the remaining presentations will be awesome, as well. The speakers are experts in their subjects, and so very interesting to listen to. Everyone is having a great time interacting and networking with each other as well. Some of the webinars encourage audience participation, too, which is very lively. Thanks to all the speakers and to Tawnya for another great VA Virtuosos series.

    • Patty, thanks to you too and all the attendees for interacting before and after the webinars. That has been the fun part for me, getting to know all of you a bit more. Enjoy the rest of the series!

  • Who knew for the cost of an average date night for me & hubby, I could invest in myself/my business, learn from some great presenters, grow my business, and build relationships with such amazing and like-minded VAs!! I’M LOVING IT!! I have already started applying the knowledge I’ve gained.

    As a new VA, I appreciate the time investment Tawnya and each presenter had made and the participants who have been amazing during the seminars. Now I can move forward with even more confidence since I have the tools to be successful without a 90-hour work week.

    • Lisa, I had to laugh when you said “for the cost of an average date night for me & hubby” as my first thought was, I’m going to have to take that husband of yours aside and tell him that you are worth more than $15/date ;) Glad you are enjoying the series and that its been a good investment for you and business.

  • Cheryl Sajnani:

    Tawnya, firstly, I am so thankful that you have taken the initiative to put these seminars together and for providing us with courage with your own example. We need to be connected with other VAs. The speakers are outstanding and have made great contributions in inspiring us and giving us valuable tools to move forward.
    A BIG THANK YOU once again to yourself and the speakers.

  • Debi Leonard:

    This is the first of any seminars I have been to sponsored by VAnetworking. I have been so pleased at all the various information I have received and can really see the benefit that I have obtained so far. Each and everyone of the speakers had information that benefited me as a Virtual Assistant.
    The Chat that goes along with the seminar is priceless! Not only did I learn from the speakers, I also was able to network with other VA’s. Such an opportunity!! Don’t miss the one in April!
    Kudo’s to Tawyna for the very resonable price as well!

    • I agree about the in between chat/networking Debi. It just makes me all fuzzy and warm inside getting to know others in the VA industry on a more personal level. Its definitely a VA bonding of sorts! Glad you are enjoying the event! :)

  • Kathy Birkett:

    I don’t know what else to say, but WOW. I have lurked in the background for two years researching everything I could about VA’s, and I would venture a guess that the last couple of days has provided so much more focused information that I have been looking for.

    As a budding VA, this information has been priceless for me. Tawnya, your choice of presenters is perfect, and the varied information makes one just want to keep on listening. Thank you to Tawnya, the presenters and the selfless volunteers for putting this on. We appreciate it more than you can know.

    • Kathy, thank you for your kind words and I’m so thrilled you are enjoying our event. The speakers are fantastic and what is so cool about their webinars is that many of them were brand new VAs themselves not long ago. I hope to see you speaking here too very soon Kathy ;) Enjoy the series and thanks!

  • Shauna:

    I finally got to sit in on a webinar today and it was great! So much knowledge from all the participants. I’m still learning before I launch properly, but now I’ve got itchy feet to get moving more quickly.

    Koo-dos to Tawnya and her group of volunteers. They did an awesome job!!

  • This series of webinars has been so great. Even when you think, I have this, I’m doing it, you realize that there maybe one key piece of the puzzle that is going to put it all together. This is what the seminars have done for me, it has answered questions about specifics, taking a step back and looking at a different perspective.

    This has been a very awesome seminar series, and I thank you again for all you do for us, helping us succeed in our business. :)

  • WOW ! The speakers and resources provided in this excellent webinar series is unbelievable. The chatting throughout (and even after a session has ended) has added extra value to the package. I have learned much and have received the tools to be successful in these topics. The VA industry is unique in that we love to help, share and uplift each other be successful. I appreciate the time and energy of, and the speakers for the VAVS2 to make this an excellent webinar series. Don’t miss the upcoming series in April 2011. I know I will be there! Thank you!

  • This was a value-packed week, I can’t wait to put some of the new tips and strategies into practice and crank my business up a notch. I am still amazed at the affordability and value of this series, thank-you for making these sessions so accessible to newer (budget challenged) VAs.

    It feel so blessed to be a part of the VA community. It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to learn from this inspiring group of talented and giving VAs.

    Many thanks to all who made this event possible! See you next time around, this one is on my must-attend list.

    It has been a great week of webinar’s. I can not believe how much I have learned. The speakers were detailed and easy to follow and learn from.

    Thank you to all of the speakers and Tawnya for assisting me in my business growth.

  • Thanks so much to Tawnya and all the presenters for such an incredible week of learning and sharing. It amazes me to find a group of professionals who are so willing to share so freely of their knowledge and experience with others who are new to the profession. Thanks again to you all! Great Job!

  • Thank you to Tawnya for a wonderful week of speakers on topics that I have been needing assistance on. Many new and great ideas. Linked In and Facebook two areas that I have ignored and realize that I need to get my butt in gear! Thank you to ALL the speakers who took their time to help all those in attendance! I’m very much looking forward to next year’s seminars! Hope to see many of you again in the spring of 2011!

  • Tawnya
    You have done it again! These seminars were great! I am so glad that I upgraded to the Diamond Level, I can’t wait to listen to the first series!

    Kudos to your volunteer assistants who helped you before, during and after the seminars. I know that without them you would not have been able to put these seminars on.

    Also THANKS to all the great speakers. Although I tried really hard to attend all sixteen in person, I missed two of them. I have scheduled time in my schedule next week to listen to them. I am so looking forward to hearing what insight they have to offer.

    These seminars will help me as I continue to grow my VA business and help me realize my goals. Thank you so much!

  • Shauna:

    Wow! I’ve just downloaded all the bonus extras from the guest speakers to read whilst I’m on the train over the coming weeks. I can’t wait as I wasn’t able to attend more than 2 of the sessions. The speakers have been very generous in the information they have provided. For me as a ‘newbie’ I am very grateful to you all, it makes my life a lot easier to know that I don’t have to ‘re-invent the wheel’, THANK YOU!
    Secret Secretary

  • Hello Tawnya!

    What wonderful seminars you put together last week! No matter how long we are in business we can always benefit from such seminars!

    The speakers were awesome! All were exceptionally knowledgeable and for me opened my eyes a bit more to realizing that I need to make some additions and changes to my business. I’m so old school that it is time to get with the ball game! With the Diamond package I am able to continue learning with all the material you have provided from this past week that I know I will get out of that old school!

    Looking forward to the Spring 2011 seminars!

  • Thank you, Tawnya. I have resources to read and learn from for many, many weeks. I have been encouraged and inspired as well.

  • Edna Campos:

    What an amazing week of webinars! all of the information is very valuable for me as I am now starting my business as a Virtual Assistant. The speakers have a lot of experience on their fields and they knew to transmit it to us a in a very clearly way. Thanks for their time and effort to make us understand the most important and trendy topics within this industry.
    Thank you very much Tanwya and your wonderful team for all the love you put in designing them and for your professionalism that I admire, you’all made this webinars such a great experience for me; I also loved meeting all the VA’s and what they gently shared with me.
    Edna Campos from Mexico.

  • I can’t wait! I attended last year’s VA Virtuosos and it was one of the most informative series of tele-classes for virtual assistants I’ve ever been part of. Not to mention the sidebar chats–what a great community! I can’t believe it’s such an amazing bargain.

    • I always try to keep an affordable package for the newbies who don’t have much in their budget yet for training. I truly believe this series can benefit so many Virtual Assistants worldwide.

  • I am very interested in attending the webinars, but will not be able to access most of them. Will we be able to download or replay them after the fact?

  • What an amazing week it was. So much to learn from established VAs across the pond. I feel lucky to have been able to participate on those webinars – even more as I now can listen to them all over again. Thank you Tawnya, thanks to the presenters.

    • Tawnya:

      Andrea you were such a trooper attending them as I know that the 12 hour difference in timezones with our webinars kept you awake untill 3-4am in the morning. Thanks for spending your sleeping hours with us ;)

  • Hi Tawnya,
    I was considering going for Diamond. I was wondering if the replays will be downloadable as MP3′s as well as video. I like to listen and relisten to seminars while driving or away from my computer. Please let me know soon.

  • Debra Mason:

    I am really very interested in attending the webinars. However, they are being held while I am away from home and taking care of business in Dallas, TX. Will these webinars be recorded, and if so, will they be available for me to view? Also, if I register for these webinars and have to view the archived sessions, will I still receive all the other bonuses such as the free downloads from the VA presenters, tip sheets, etc.?

  • This sounds very exciting, so much information at your fingertips. What does it take to be a gold member and how much does it cost for the gold membership?

  • Thanks for the invitation. I love learning and keep always on my mind. But, What is the difference on this to others?

    • I only know of one other online conference for the VA industry and our uniqueness is that all of our speakers are or have owned a Virtual Assistant practice. You are listening to speakers at our network who have been there or are doing it as a successful VA and want to share their knowledge with other VAs. I’ve found the VA industry to be very supportive amongst either other sharing their experiences to help others avoid the mistakes they have made. A very giving industry unlike other industries (ie: internet marketers) who see their business colleagues as competitors instead of friends

  • Julie Caught:

    Hi Tawnya
    I am in the process of setting up my VA business so I am still working in the meantime. This conference looks awesome but I will be working whilst it’s occurring. Is there anyway that I can get recordings of the conference?
    Julie Caught

    • Yes, just select the GOLD package when registering and that includes the recordings of these 20 webinars plus you get access to archives of over 100 past webinars :)

  • Beverly:

    This conference sounds amazing and I cannot wait to engage in this wealth of information. I’m registering today.

    • I am so looking forward to it! We have an amazing line up of speakers again this season that you’ll definitely learn from. Not to mention networking and engaging with all the attendees and speakers is priceless! Hope you have a great time and see you there


    Thank you for this wonderful Webinar! I am a ‘newbie’ and have not even begun to scratch the surface of all there is to know. However, today was amazing and I look forward to the next 3 days. I wasn’t even tired after today’s presentations…it was really informative!!

  • Tawnya, once again you have lined up a list of exceptional speakers and presenters to share with us. Even though I have attended VA Virtuosos in the past, the content is still very current and informative. I am looking forward to the last day, tomorrow, but also know I’ll suffer “withdrawals” on Saturday.

    When a friend or former co-worker talks to me about working from home, the VAnetworking forum is the first of two places I send them. If they join the forum and start making use of it, then I know they’re interested ;)

    Thanks again for sharing so much with us year after year! I think you have set a good example for the entire VA industry with your generous nature.

    • Thanks for your raves Kathy and for mentioning us to your business colleagues. (Don’t forget to use your affiliate link when you do refer people to us so you get a kickback as a thankyou for this ;)

      It was fun to engage with you once again at VAVS during the networking time between speakers. This is one of the coolest perks about hanging with us live > getting to network with attendees and learn more about them so we can all leverage our skills and work together in this industry :)

  • Great series and awesome speakers! This is my second conference, and I am already looking forward to the next one! I connected with a lot of great people. Thank you Tawnya! :-)

  • Andrea Robinson:

    We are in day 4 of our 5 day VAVS 8 Session. Just amazing everything we are learning.

    I am a “newbie” as well to this world. I have lots to learn and am excited about it and am up for the challenge.

    • Andrea I’m glad you are learning lots to put towards your new start up as a VA. The opportunities for VAs to make money selling their services is endless and the speakers will inspire you even further with their presentations. Enjoy! :)

  • Sue Kramer Harrawood:


    My sincerest thank you’s to you and Danielle for yet again creating a rock star VAVS lineup this week. I wasn’t able to catch many live but the ones I did were terrific! I enjoyed hearing Sharon give business plans a makeover and met a new speaker that I know I will be following – Lynn Terry. Really like her knowledge and personality. Also so jazzed to hear my buds Donna Toothaker, Susan Mershon and Nancy Seeger. Was thrilled to start a relationship with Kathy Anderson. Such top notch folks all around!

    Thank you for allowing me the privilege to be a sponsor and speak to attendees about something near and dear to my heart – exceptional team members. I look forward to teaching VA Networking members when they enroll in Exceptional Subcontractors. I’ll keep the coupon code up a while as I want as many to take advantage of the deal as they can. They’ll learn such great stuff taught by the brilliant minds of the VA industry.

    • Sue, the connections I’ve made at VAVS have been fantastic for my business and glad to see you made some new ones as well :) Lynn Terry rocks! And thank you for your sponsorship this season. I see a bunch have already enrolled in your program and I know they won’t be disappointed.

  • Hi Tawnya,
    Hope you are doing well.

    Can you please let me know .How a Virtual Office can control your costs??

    Online Virtual Assistant

    • There are minimal costs associated with running a VA business as we do work from a home office, is that what you mean by your question, please clarify if something different? You’ll need a website to market yourself, a computer (printer, etc.), software/programs to service your clients, marketing budget, continuing education, etc. all of which is a tax write-off starting up a VA business. If your question relates more to the costs the client saves by hiring a VA you can learn more about that here:

  • Lisa K:

    Hi Tawnya,
    I wanted you and your audience to know that I thoroughly enjoyed the VAVS 8 seminars last week. I learned so much from each speaker on the panel. Every one had special knowledge to share with all of us. It was so informative and very well structured. You sure know how to put together these events! I am now sorting through everything and working on figuring out my next moves.

    Thanks again- I will be back in touch!


  • My first Virtual Assistant conference and I’m very excited! Koodos for my prompt and personal customer service from Ms. VAVirtuoso herself and Danielle at the help desk!

  • Debra McGill:

    There has been amazing content in this online conference. I have many new ideas to learn, use, and implement! Thank you for offering this great learning opportunity!

  • Kathryn Solomon:

    Just wanted to express my appreciation to you for offering the ‘GOLD’ membership level. I love the seminar, the great presenters and the varied subject matter offered. I do not want to miss any of it. Which is why I was delighted you offered the opportunity for presentation replays and all of the materials for download. I have a busy work/family schedule and while I have attended several sessions; I am pleased that I can review missed presentations on my own time schedule.
    Thank you Tawnya!
    Kathryn Solomon

    • Kathryn, having the video recordings to go back on and review (or watch if you happen to miss a webinar LIVE) is one of the perks of upgrading to a GOLD membership and glad you love it :) I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you more at the event and look forward to keeping our connection going through our social networks in the future :)

  • Julia Rola:

    I’m attending VAvirtosos for first time (GOLD level & so grateful to have access to presentations after this week).

    Approx. 2 years ago, I was fortunate enough to be mentored by a very generous gal who provided subcontract work. That website support & social media support work began to dwindle February.

    It’s past time for me to get a website launched and to hit it (i.e. fully market my own virtual business)! These webinars are so energizing and-ddd empowering. HooRAY!

    • Julia so thrilled you are enjoying VAVS! It’s been great getting to know you during networking hours at VAVS between speakers. I’m glad you are getting something out of them HooRAY! ;)

  • So far enjoying it all! Intense week but glad I have the luxury of going back and listening to the recorded videos. Thank you!

  • Irene Chambers:

    This is the final day of VAVS9, and my head is buzzing with all the information. In such a good way! I’m so charged up. Being new to the VA business, I have just been on soak-it-in overdrive this week. It’s a huge learning curve for me, and this has been AWESOME! I chose the GOLD membership, knowing I’d miss a few webinars and be able to see them later. So glad I did now, seeing what the bonus downloads and speaker notes are, too. Thank you so much for this opportunity. (One thing I would love even more would be if all the speaker offers could be open for just one more week. A little more time to make a decision about which one(s) I need most.)

  • Ronda Henderson:

    I have loved everything that I have learned from all the outstanding speakers that have been on this Conference! Absolutely worth every penny of the fee. As a newbie, I am just so happy to have found this resource. Thank you all for taking the time to share all your valuable information!

  • Caroline Donnelly:

    VAVs is always an incredible time of learning and growing, plus fun chatting and networking. The low price shouldn’t fool anyone, there is thousands of dollars in value here! By attending VAVs, a virtual assistant can learn things in a week that took me months and years to learn!

  • Kimberly B:

    ACCOMPLISHED GOALS PRODUCE BIG CHECKS! Question: what’s personalized informative interactive, convenient and delivers just what your business wants and needs? A good VA! I live by check lists. this week I received my biggest checks ever by attending the week-long online 2014 VAV Conference – 20+ hrs of webinar training completed/done!!!! I got paid motivation, time, attention and technical support on the fly. Thanks Tawnya and Danielle for bringing a training experience and international gathering I’ll never forget directly to my living room.

  • Lisa:

    This was my first VAVS!!! I am so glad that I decided to attend. I learned so much. This conference is for everyone from the VA just starting out to the VA that has been in business for years!! So much great information and networking. Thank you Tawnya for having this conference :)

  • susanne collyer:

    what a great opportunity to be able to speak at VAVS9. This is such a warm and interested group of Virtual Assistants. Thank you Tawnya for putting on a top notch event and to Danielle Beauchemin for all her behind the scenes support. There are so many talented Virtual Assistants and it is such a joy to be part of this group.

  • Awesome training. All of the speakers and presentations were very informative. So glad I upgraded so I can go back and listen to them over again. Thank you so much for this great resource. I will definitely take advantage of some of the programs the speakers offered.

  • Great job everyone that helped make a wonderful experience for my first VAVS! Kudos to all that worked tirelessly to make it happen, I know that it took a lot of work behind the scenes. I really enjoyed attending some of the live sessions and look forward to listening to the recorded sessions with my GOLD membership

  • Kathy Andrews:

    The VAVS conference is fantastic! I always learn at least one thing from every webinar. And this conference was no different. Thank you Tawnya and Danielle for doing such a great job.

  • Great week of knowledge….Thank you for all you do for us!

  • I really enjoyed the VAVS conference. There was a lot of information, which I hope to use over the next several months. Thank you very much for providing this opportunity!

  • Rebecca Sheppit:

    WOW! I am so glad I bought a GOLD package for VAVS9. This was my first ever virtual conference. There was a lot of cool information shared over the 5 days and I will be able to review all the webinars for many months to come to absorb it all. As well, I have new contacts that I will be able to network with. Thank you Tawnya and Danielle. I will be back next year for VAVS10 for sure!!!!!!

  • Erin Schenke:

    Thanks for the great trainings!

  • Kelly SeBour:


    Just wanted to comment on the AWESOME VAVS9 webinars. I have learned so much and very excited to start my own VA business. All the presentations were wonderful and came with an abundance of information to help us grow and become successful VA’s. So glad I purchased the GOLD Membership. VA Networking/ VA Insiders Club will be my Go to Community! Thanks to Tawnya; going call her the Motivator!

    Kelly SeBour

  • Had another great season at VAvirtuosos! Once again I left with my head full of great information from all the speakers. Enjoyed networking with other VAs in the webinar room and can’t wait for next season!

    Thanks to all that came and made the event a blast! I always look forward to helping put this event together with Tawnya every Spring and Fall. :)

    Next up, VAVS10!
