On this page information on how to become a virtual assistant in Australia, how it works and how to grow your business.  But first, this unsolicited testimonial from Sahana.

If anyone is dreaming of starting your own busines you should speak to Liz from 121temps. It will no longer be a dream, cuz Liz, Susan and the other team members from 121temps will help you to make it happen. Liz, a huge thank you to you for the support you provide. Susan, you are a star or should I say an angel. As dramatic as it may sound, that’s what you have been. Supporting me with everything I need to know to set up my home based business and also helping me build my confidence. Susan has not only responded to my queries but she also checks in with me from time to time to make sure I’m doing OK. I can’t thank you both enough, Susan and Liz thank you for everything. If anyone is thinking of working from home around your kids, it is possible. You just have to talk to Liz from 121temps.
