    Happy birthday little bro

    Happy birthday little bro

    Today is my birthday. It's also my little brother Rod's birthday - yep we shared not just the date but the exact time!  Ten months ago we lost him suddenly so this is a tribute to him. The brother, son, husband, uncle, soldier and mate who taught us how to live authentically, with compassion, honour and integrity. Severely missed; never forgotten. Love you little bro. Happy birthday!

    Ep 58: The Real Cost of Staff

    Onsite staff don't just cost you their annual salary and on costs like super and worker's comp. Are you aware of what your staff actually cost you? Or how a professional Australian Virtual Assistant can actually save you money?

    Ep 57: Are you quoting or working?

    When a potential client asks you if you can complete a piece of a project in order to provide a quote, be sure you're not actually giving them the work for free. Worse than undervaluing your services is to allow others to view them as worthless.

    Ep 55: Warranties - Who's Responsible?

    Ep 55: Warranties - Who's Responsible?

    (8 min listen)

    Warranties apply to all goods and services sold in Australia and in addition to manufacturer's warranties, store warranties, and express warranties, there are a set of consumer guarantees that protect consumers regardless of store policies.

    So when you need to return that faulty item, do you know who's responsible and what rights and remedies you have as a consumer, and what responsibilities you have as a business? Are you using refund signage in your store? Do you know if it's legal? Did you know that the choice of remedy lies with the consumer if the failure is major not the business?

    Ep 54: Language Matters

    Ep 54: Language Matters

    When people who aren’t VAs come onto a discussion group FOR VAs and start telling us what we should be called and that we are hired as opposed to contracted, you know it’s time to revisit the importance of language.
