Miranda Nahmias on Her Family’s Publishing Company and Becoming a Virtual Assistant


“You feel obligated more so than any other job because it’s your family, but if they love you, they’ll support you no matter what, so don’t let that stop you from doing your own thing.”

— Miranda Nahmias

Very cool show for you today. 🙂
Miranda Nahmias grew up working for her family’s publishing company, Mowbray Publishing, which was founded by her grandfather in 1979. Her father currently owns the company, and she still works there.
Miranda also dreamed of starting her own business, and has done so, as a Virtual Assistant (or VA). Now, some of you may still be unfamiliar with the term VA, but hiring a Virtual Assistant is a great way to outsource tasks that you don’t have time to do yourself. For example, if you don’t have time to do all of your bookkeeping, but aren’t in a position to hire someone full-time, hiring a VA to work remotely can be great for this.
Miranda primarily focuses on assisting women entrepreneurs whose businesses are in the online realm, like people who design e-courses or online membership sites.
We talk about how publishing has changed over time, and how Miranda’s experiences working for her family’s company have had a great impact on the way she conducts business as a VA today.
We also discuss Miranda’s pricing when she first started as a VA, and her strategy for gradually increases her prices over time.
