In an era of increasing gas prices and ever-growing commutes, many people are looking for alternatives to the corporate “rat race.” This is especially true for many working mothers who are pulled between the demands of work life and home life and who crave more time with their families. The virtual assistance industry, which was recently mentioned in Reader’s Digest magazine and featured in a segment on NBC’s “Today” show, offers a lucrative and legitimate way for administrative professionals to launch their own home-based businesses. In an effort to help aspiring virtual assistants (VAs) make smooth transitions to entrepreneurship, Jaime Lee Mann of Mann Made Time and Connie McVicker of Signature Worx, LLC teamed up to release Visionary VAs: The Collection, a new line of e-books and related resources for virtual assistants.

The first series in the collection, Getting Started, helps up-and-coming virtual assistants shorten the learning curve and set up their businesses the right way. The series is like no other on the market; it provides step-by-step guidance, real-world scenarios and how-to advice from two virtual assistants who built successful businesses in record time. Above all, McVicker and Mann wish to inspire new virtual assistants to "step outside the virtual box and rise above the crowd," as stated in the Visionary VAs tagline.


Through the rest of June, Visionary VAs is holding an official launch party for the Getting Started Series. All of the e-books are priced at an introductory rate in a limited edition “Launch Box Bundle,” which includes a variety of discounts on other products and services. Several valuable prizes will be drawn by lottery, and everyone who registers will receive a one-month gold membership to The VA Connection, an online resource guide for virtual assistants. The Visionary VAs “Prequel,” a $15 value, is also available as a free download to help participants decide whether virtual assistance is the right career move for them.
