Beep Boop Beep I'm a robot

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Machines

What was most disappointing about Russell Davis’s story?

He didn't go into enough detail and skimmed over the information in a monotone voice.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Neil Reeves?

Someone who has an expression in their voice, someone with soul / personality.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Luckily it was over quick, I wouldn't want to listen to his voice for 8 hours.

Any additional comments?

Niche is pronounced like 'Neesh' not like 'Nitch'.

Improper grammar, incorrect use of terms/phrases

Would you try another book from Russell Davis and/or Neil Reeves?

Never. This book is poorly written. If this author can't even bother to have his book reviewed and edited by someone who can correct his poor grammar and incorrect use of technical terms and every day phrases before publishing, then why would I look to him as a credible source for career advice?

Would you ever listen to anything by Russell Davis again?

Not likely

Would you be willing to try another one of Neil Reeves’s performances?

Don't think so

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Frustration. Much disappointment. Didn't even bother to finish the book.

Any additional comments?

So sorry to write a poor review, but anyone publishing a book has a responsibility to make sure his/her readers get a quality product, regardless of subject matter, or level of expertise.

full of information!

While the narration isn't super exciting and there aren't many real life stories referenced; this audio book was quick and to the point. It has really grounded me in my pursuit of becoming a VA and has given me many great ideas on how and where to get started.

strong overview

Short, simple, to the point. Works for me. Might be too basic for some listeners. But I am new to the idea of Virtual Assistant and this little piece has given me a decent jumping off point.

Things to think about when beginning as a VA

I found this book to be very informative. The chapter points are Important aspects of starting your own virtual assistants business. I am just entering into this industry and still learning the ropes. Listening to this audiobook has been an eye opener for me, when it comes to the key components to get started. Also protecting myself and my business. The author speaks from a clients perspective, which I found to be helpful. He also informed me where I could learn more to help my VA business. I found every chapter to be of assistance in starting my business. This audiobook is simple and straight to the point. I believe it's a must read for anyone just starting out or who is thinking about starting a virtual assistant business.
