The Bootstrap VA: The Go-Getter’s Guide to Becoming a Virtual Assistant, Getting and Keeping Clients, and More! by Lisa Morosky


The Bootstrap VA: The Go-Getter’s Guide to Becoming a Virtual Assistant, Getting and Keeping Clients, and More! is a 154-page, organized brain dump of everything Lisa Morosky has learned and experienced (and what she wishes someone had told her) over her four years of building, growing, downsizing, and repositioning a business as a virtual assistant.

The eBook includes chapters on creating your business plan, setting up your business offline and online, getting clients, working with and keeping clients, alternative income streams for virtual assistants, and more. It also includes interviews with successful virtual assistants, interviews with clients who utilize a virtual assistant, resources at the end of most chapters, a 30-day reading guide and action plan, and access to The Bootstrap VA Facebook Group where readers can bounce ideas off of each other, ask Lisa questions, and get the support needed no matter where they are in the process of becoming and working as a virtual assistant.

If you want to get started as a virtual assistant, and you’re a go-getter looking to bootstrap your way to success, this is an eBook you can’t afford to miss.

I had the opportunity to review this and really felt that I learned about how to become a Virtual Assistant! It is a very helpful book and a must-have for those who would like to be a Virtual Assistant or for those thinking about it.

I love NYC makeup because it’s affordable and it is often long-lasting so I was thrilled the receive some of their newer products to try out! The HD Trio Eye Shadow is quite affordable at $2.99 and love the color! I also like that it is long-lasting and has a dual-ended applicator for a professional result.


The Big Bold Gloss comes in great colors such as Big City Blush and Pumped Up Purple. It adds up to 50% more volume to your lips. I like that it lasts longer than most lip glosses and is non-sticky. Retails for $3.99. I also received the Sparkle Eye Dust, which is a high shimmering powder eye shadow. I really like the colors and that the applicator is easy to use and apply exactly where you want it. Retails for $2.99. All products are Mom-must-haves this summer and can be found where NYC products are sold. For more information, check out their website!

CLIF Kid snacks perfect for summer type snacks on the go!

Zbar Chocolate Chip

I love summer time and like to pack lunches for our outings! CLIF Kid snacks are just perfect to pack in the backpack! We received samples to try out and my son’s favorite is the CLIF KID Z BAR in chocolate chip flavor. I like that they are an organic baked whole grain snack made with no high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils. They also have no artificial flavors. My son simply loves them because they taste good! The CLIF KID Z BAR CRISPY is also very tasty!  A must-have for the summer and for back-to-school!
