Thinking of starting a virtual assisting company...

edited July 2008 in Selecting a Business
I live in a fairly economically depressed area in Appalachia and wondered if you guys could direct me to where I could find some information on starting a company for Virtual Assistants.  I`d be hiring people in my area and due to the lack of jobs could get highly skilled people from the community colleges. My primary role would be staffing and running the company, I personally wouldn`t be doing a lot of the VA stuff.  I already have an excellent domain name for the business and wondered if anyone could direct me to similar companies in the industry so I can get ideas. 
What do you think of the idea?eddiegreysherman7/23/2008 11:19 PM

    Congratulations!!!!!! You have started the process by coming out and sharing on the forum. There are a few Virtual Assistant Business Owners on the site and hopefully they can assist you. Your ideas sounds like you have thought out a plan of action. I would suggest that you contact the Virtual Assistant Association or the Virtual Assistants Networking Association
    I really hope that this helps you or at least puts you in the right direction.
    I wish you lots of success!!!!!!

    thanks, Erin
