By removing the stress of daily operations, Tracey allows her clients the focus and freedom to do whatever it is that they do best…thus resulting in heightened profit and growth.
We are going to discuss the virtual assistance industry and drill down so that you are able to understand the industry distinctions. For instance, what is a Virtual Assistant (VA)? What is a concierge VA? What is a Project Manager and how is that different from an Online Business Manager (OBM)? And how is an OBM different from a VA? And then of course, we will talk about VA teams.
It can be very confusing to sort through the different levels of expertise when making the decison to work with a virtual business professional and we are going to help you get very clear on this topic.

I recently interviewed J. Massey who is an Active Real Estate Investorpreneur, Author, Speaker, Community Leader, Devoted Father and Husband.
We had so much to talk about that I asked him to return to Your Partner In Success Radio to pick up where we left off.
J. Massey's is a true rags to riches story. In just six years he went from the struggle many people experience as he worked hard to provide for his family in southern California to amassing an impressive portfolio that includes over 300 units of residential and commercial properties as well as private notes and mortgages.
Through a series of life-altering events, including the serious illness of his then-pregnant wife, an accident that left J. with a punctured lung that excluded him from being able to work, and even losing and squatting in their foreclosed family home, J. learned quickly that he had to change his mindset if he wanted to survive and thrive. He immediately took action, immersing himself into intensive real estate investor training. He hasn't looked back and has built a booming investing business, using very little of his own cash or credit.
Click here to listen to our previous interview and here is a really nice blog post that J. wrote about that episode.
