We did it!!! I keep thinking that I’m going to wake up and it will have all been just a fabulous dream. But no, it’s for realsies and it’s SO exciting! To be called one of the: “BEST ENTREPRENEURIAL COMPANIES IN AMERICA” by Entrepreneur magazine is such an amazing privilege.

This is the smile that’s been plastered on my face lately!

THANK YOU, to all of you who have ever believed in our service. You’ve helped to make this possible.

You may have seen a prior post, describing how scary-BIG this was for us, to even consider going after a place on The Entrepreneur 360™ List.

The Entrepreneur 360™ Ranking delivers the most comprehensive analysis of private companies in America. This study forged by Entrepreneur, has been designed to provide a multidimensional view of entrepreneurship today, recognizing well-rounded, privately-held companies based on their impact, innovation, growth, leadership and value.

We ranked #269 on the list.

“Every entrepreneur knows that a healthy business isn’t just about growth. It’s about being well-rounded—growing your culture and your systems as strongly as you grow your revenue,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur Magazine. “That’s why we’re excited to celebrate these companies with our fifth annual Entrepreneur360 List. The companies that make the list have pushed boundaries with their innovative ideas, fostered strong company cultures, impacted their communities for the better, strengthened their brand, and grown impressively as a result.”

As with everything in life, there’s always room to grow, improve the ranking, our services, our impact in our community, our operations, etc. etc. …AND even the way we celebrate successes along the way – right!?! ‘Cause, in the words of Ferris Bueller…

“Life moves pretty fast.

If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

A Growing Economy Includes Virtual Assistants

Imagine our excitement when we got the call to be included in this article about the economy in Grants Pass and other surrounding communities of Southern Oregon. It’s pretty awesome to know that Virtual Assistants (who are normally the unseen ninjas of admin production) are also recognized contributors to a locally growing economy.

We love assisting entrepreneurs and established business owners who have a product or service that ultimately gives back and that helps to promote healthy, thriving communities. Our service to clients in other regions brings new revenue into Southern Oregon. Clients in those other time zones benefit too, by experiencing an extended work day, thus being more productive. Special consideration may be given to more localized entrepreneurs/businesses who need additional admin help but are not quite ready for an employee (for any number of reasons).Page 2 - Article by Jeff Duewel

AVA Virtual Assistance is leading the VA industry into Value Priced agreements as well. We can further the growth and economy of our community business leaders and startups by removing the fear that a “meter is running” – something you get with hourly fee agreements. Flat rate packages are no better because they limit plans for growth, rather than encourage more. Value Pricing is the way to go. Other industries are seeing the need and making this change, there’s no good reason why the Virtual Assistant industry couldn’t do the same.
