    To gift or not to gift ...

    To gift or not to gift ...

    At this time of year the question arises: to gift or not to gift. It comes down to personal choice – but I like to send clients – especially my long term clients – something to show my appreciation for them.







    Some places to get gift giving ideas:







    Morish Nuts







    Edible Blooms







    Koko Black Chocolate







    Gift Baskets (Australia)

    Ep 49: The Fraud of ‘Living the Dream’

    Ep 49: The Fraud of ‘Living the Dream’

    It’s been nearly 14 years since The 4-Hour Work Week was published – yet the idea that virtual support should only cost you $5/hour persists.







    If you’re all about saving money in your business then opting for cheap labour has its advantages – but also inherent disadvantages – and just because they’re ‘remote’ doesn’t make them Virtual Assistants.

    Gratitude

    Gratitude

    Gratitude is something we should all practice every day. Feeling appreciated is important to everyone.







    But I’m amazed how little gratitude clients can show to VAs… and conversely, how little VAs can show for clients!

    Ep 47: Audio Transcription

    So… you want to be a transcriptionist because – well, you can type! Isn’t it the same thing? No … it most certainly isn’t! And clients – a typist is not the same thing as a transcriptionist!







    In this episode I run through some of the basic skills you need to have if you want to be a transcriptionist, and give clients some tips on what to look for in a professional service provider, and what affects the cost of transcription.
