How do you go about finding & choosing a VA, given that I don't have abundant time to keep trying people?

To find one that clicks? Sub question - what circumstances/services would you consider enough of a... read more

Monika NewmanVirtual Secretary/Personal Assistant at Absolutely Virtual
There are many VA organisations out there that you could connect with who can help you target the VA who has the skill sets that you require. Many VAs specialise in particular areas, e.g., Social Media, Copyrighting, Formatting, Author's Assistants etc. so if you can get very clear in what areas you need assistance you will be able to narrow down the field. Many VAs have testimonials on their LinkedIn profiles/websites from existing or previous clients based upon particular tasks that they have undertaken and excelled at.You could also try asking other business owners if they have any recommendations because many VAs are also sourced by word of mouth.The VAs' locality may also be important to you, although VAs for the most part work virtually there may be times when you need to have face to face strategy sessions.
Sandra WrightOwner at AdminWorthy
Hi Janine,As a Virtual admin and events coordinator myself, the best ways to try and ensure you find and keep the right VA is either by another business referring them to you or doing reference checks on them with their existing clients (just like you would do a reference check when hiring an employee).Also its ideal if possible to provide the VA with small amounts of work to start with and if you are happy with them, then gradually increase their workload/responsibilites.

Jef LippiattOwner at Startup Chucktown
Lego CommunicationFirst build a model with Legos (can be anything, but typically a house or a layout works best)Take a picture of the model you builtDocument each type of piece and the quantity neededCreate Lego packets for teams (one packet per team). The packet should include all the necessary parts to build the model along with a handful of other parts. When explaining the activity to the group, tell them 1 person per team will get a picture of the model (each team builds the same model).What is the hook? Only the person with the picture can explain the picture. Limit the words they can use to the color of the piece, the location of the piece, the size of the piece and what level that piece is on.The team has to work together to find all the correct pieces, and to assemble them. The hard part is the picture may not show all pieces within the model (as the picture is in perspective so one side may not be visible). This goes into trying to explain what piece may be logical.This of course leads to team discussion (and maybe some small arguments).The most important thing is to set a time limit, of say 10 to 15 minutes maximum. After that time has expired, ask all teams to stop building. Walk around and look at the models. How close were the teams to matching them?Ask them what they struggled with and why. Then speak about the importance of clear communication.Cheers!

Questions

Does anyone have a sample partnership agreement (Word format) that they can share?

Terry ChadbanOwner at Port Macquarie Online Marketing
Hi Kellie,As others have suggested, getting advice from a solicitor experienced in business matters is your best and safest choice. Second best if you are short on funds is to use Australian law websites to get Australian documents. Two you can check out are Lawpath and LegalVision.
Kirsty FoxPrincipal at Spitfire Solutions
Hi Kellie,I don't, and I would still suggest you see a solicitor/lawyer to work out the nuts and bolts.Good luck!
