Books read in 2013: No. 43 -- Make Money Online: Become a Virtual Assistant

by Andrea Walters

Started: August 24
Finished: August 26

Notes: Mark this one down as research. I have an idea for a horror short story that might involve a virtual assistant, so I thought I'd learn a little about that world. Also, I used to own a personal concierge business, which isn't the same thing but has some overlap with the virtual assistant business.

Mini review: Mostly basic but solid advice to anyone starting an online business. It wouldn't hurt for many indie writers and editors to studying such. As for helping me with my short story, maybe, maybe not, but definitely helped me get back into the business mindset, one I've not been much in for a long while.

I have such a hard time with the business mindset. I should read this one for sure.

Yeah, it's not a mindset I get into nowadays. Been there, done that, found it wanting, so to speak. Still, it's something I can use for writing, and it doesn't hurt to keep it in mind concerning publishing.
