What to expect from the 121 Temps Team
I believe that every virtual business is unique. Each virtual assistant brings their own unique skills and experiences, attributes and personality, this gives them a unique brand. They each want something different from their businesses as well, so creating a cookie cutter business just won't work for them. One to one mentoring means that they build a business they want.
Led by our CEO, Liz Parker, the 121 Temps team is a qualified and experienced group of virtual assistants who have been where you are now. They have each grown successful virtual assistant businesses and are committed to making your journey as painless as possible

These, together with our live training makes the opportunities for you to learn and grow incomparable with anywhere else. Plus we have a 100% satisfaction guarantee with no contracts.

All our members are invited to include their profile on our one-of-a-kind VA Directory and Search - www.vaplacements.com. This automated system helps clients find the virtual assistant they are looking for. Our system will limit the number of profiles that it sends to any one client to between 3 and 5. The client can also request a personal recruitment service at no extra cost. We check all client requests and follow up with the client to meet our quality standards.
Similar to traditional recruitment services but without the fees. Our Unique system matches your needs with our 400+ directory of virtual assistants.
All our virtual assistants listed are bound by a code of conduct that is monitored by a professional standards panel.
We work with you to ensure you do not get overwhelmed. We only send you 3-5 top performers in your category. You select the right virtual assistant for you.
I had been running my business for 7 years and in a 40 minute conversation with 121temps my eyes were truly opened to the potential for growth.
I was a struggling VA for a couple of years before I joined 121temps, now I have found that my business is growing by leaps and bounds.
I can't speak too highly about Liz and her team, they are supportive, caring and a great resource for any virtual assistant.
A virtual assistant is the term used to describe someone who runs a business from home and delivers their services over the internet. Virtual assistant are self-employed and can choose to set up their business in different ways. They can be sole traders, register a pty ltd company or run under a trust.
There are a huge range of services that virtual assistants offer. Not just admin and not just low level services either. This list of services is just the tip of the iceberg. We have helped everyone from a Woolworths supervisor to a fully qualified accountant and para-legal set up their business.
The major benefits to most women who become a virtual assistant are the flexibility and control over their own life. We help you live the life you want by working virtually.

Where do I start?
Knowing where to start is the most common question we get asked. You start with yourself. You work out what you want, where you want to be in 5-10 years and how much you want to earn. Then you look at your skills and any skills you need to learn and start working on your marketing plan. Our Flagship Course How to Get Started, Find Clients and Charge What You Are Worth will step you through the process. Quick tip - if you book in an initial chat with me, I'll give you a discount code.
Will my skills be enough to earn an income?
I can give you a simple exercise to do to assess the skills and experience you have and give you an indication of what market (if any) will use them. I can also give you indications of pay and conditions.
Where do I find clients?
There are over 2 million small businesses in Australia and 686,000 of them don't employ staff. There is a huge market for virtual assistant services and you only need a handful of clients to be successful. Business owners want to delegate the mundane and specialised tasks that they don't want to do and can't do. Our marketing plan will tell you exactly how to market your business.
How does it all work?
Similar to working in a traditional office only you work from your own home and use readily available software to deliver your services remotely. Rather than work for one person who buys your time, you have several clients who hire you as an independent contractor. You invoice them for your services and are responsible for marketing and sales.
