I bet you are worth far more than your rates would suggest – and reviewing your prices could lead to the lifestyle you want overnight!
Hello! I’m Jo Sparkes…
“Why did you become a VA?” is a pretty common question I’m asked. And the answer really is the lifestyle. Being virtual means I really can work from anywhere, and have the time I want at home with my family as well as running a successful business.
I’ve been Managing Director of Expedio Virtual Assistance since 2003, one of the first businesses of its kind in the UK. I wanted to work from home after my son was born, and even now he’s grown up and at university, I wouldn’t change the lifestyle I’ve got for the world!
Since I took the plunge 15 years ago, virtual assistance has become a huge industry, and I get so many emails from people wanting advice on setting up their own business. That’s why I set up VA Pro Magazine, in 2011, as a way of giving others all the skills I’d learned over years as a VA so they can reach their goals
My aim is to get you where you want to be. I’ve had wonderful and terrible clients, been a sole trader and limited company, and faced almost every possible problem and still survived to tell the tale!
I love my job, and I want you to love it too. That’s why I want you to have all the tips and help I didn’t have when I first started as a VA.
Setting prices too low or based on competition rates is one of the most common mistakes made by new businesses of all kinds, especially VAs, but I want to show you why setting yours doesn’t have to be complicated, and that you can have the lifestyle you want to achieve.
The Perfect Pricing Formula is the result of 15 years experience, and of getting my prices right for the lifestyle I want. Everything I’ve learned, across 25 workbook pages, for only £17.99.
When I was setting up, I wished I had more help available to me. That’s why I’m making sure you can have all the help you need to succeed with VA Pro. With the right help and the right prices, you too can have the lifestyle you dream of.
