(Editor’s Note: When Denise Aday,
Plano, TX, was laid off in Spring of 2006, she turned to what she knew best. Helping others. In August of last year, Denise launched Aday VA Solutions, a virtual assistant business offering outsourcing of a variety of tasks ranging from administrative and word pressing services to marketing assistance for businesses via the Internet. Drawing from previous work experience, Denise decided to design her own website for her business with what she says were mixed results. Here, in an e-mail interview with Bootstrap Design, is what she learned in the process.)
