When I saw the lead in for the Today Show piece this morning about Virtual Assistants, I held my breath – hoping it would show our profession in a good – and realistic – light. I was a little disappointed. But, I must admit, the service they profiled was geared toward individuals – not businesses and entrepreneurs. So, I suppose it is a little like comparing granny smith apples and red delicious apples. Both are apples, but each are specialized.
That being said, I do believe that when you profile an industry and the service shows you can get “x” done for $30 per month, then when you contact me and discover my rates START at $30 per HOUR, you’re going to have some serious sticker shock.
