start a online business
Here is the story behind this website and its creators, me and my virtual assistant. Together, we are collaborating to start a online business that will teach you how to profit and gain more free time.
What is this “Ideal Helper” all about?
Here is my bottom line:
I believe everyone should find and work together with an ideal virtual partner and co-worker to save your most valuable good: your precious time.
Even if you are not planning on creating a website, there are still tons of stuff – all that you do on the computer, actually – that you could outsource.
The tips to find and work together with an “ideal helper” that you’ll find on these pages are addressed to normal people like you and me – not some big shot corporation bosses.
Perhaps, you never thought about building your own future with a website. I didn’t either, just a few years ago. Read on to learn why I changed my mind…
Outsourcing has become my hobby and passion
You can start a online business about virtually anything.
I have used outsourcing for private projects over the years. It was such an effective, ruthless and modern way to approach those overwhelming to-do-lists that I had lying around…
Getting involved with virtual assistants was the best things that ever happen to me.
That is why I built this very site about “ideal helpers”.
This is actually my second site. I have built another before, without the help of a VA. Although it worked out, but I learned how to jump start a online business when a VA, trained by me, helped me out with every step on the way!
- Read this post from the early days of my website when my virtual assistant provided me with keyword research service.
- The only acceptable way to outsource writing website content.
- Tired of working through tedious and repetitive tasks like repairing broken links? Personal assistant wanted to help you out on the little things?

HTML-based tasks with the help of a Virtual Assistant
Working with HTML can be very time consuming. There are:
- the learning curve on how to work with HTML for you
- the tedious day-to-day tasks
- the research of finding HTML solutions when your knowledge runs out
In my experience, your VA can be very helpful when you let him take care of your HTML related tasks. Some examples…
Start a online business – It’s not always easy and it takes time
When working on my website businesses, sometimes I had trouble making hard decisions. Having a virtual assistant at my side that knew my web business as well as I did greatly helped me out every time.

If you think: Building a website is not for me – I know nothing about it… Stop.
When I started building websites, I did not even know what SEO, HTML or all that crap meant.
But, I was willing to learn, if it was explained to me in a down-to-earth, layman’s terms sort of way.
Luckily, SBI! does not only take care of website hosting, but also comes completely equipped with a step-by-step training system that simply cannot fail, if you follow it to the letter!
Really, everyone? I couldn’t believe it either
Don’t fall for any tricks, be sure to double check any claim you read on the internet. Yes, even what I am telling you.
I was very skeptical, too. I needed every bit of information before trying out Sitesell’s system – but I have never regretted it ever since.
You can actually see how others start a online business and successfully make money online simply by talking about what interests them most: their hobbies and their passions!
Check out these examples of successful SBI websites!
The website hosting costs exactly the same, no matter how many thousands of visitors you get on your website, is a nice “side-effect” 😉
This makes the secure hosting system from SBI a true bargain compared to other web hosts.
My advice to a friend
I was asked if a virtual assistant really is useful for a website owner.
My opinion is that hiring virtual assistant support is one of the smartest online business strategies you could come up with.
Use the right system with your VAs:
All the virtual help in the world will not help you if you are stuck with the wrong system. If you are serious about making your online home based business ideas come true, you need to use the correct system!

Every person has the potential to create his own online business. Not everyone uses the right tools to turn his potential online home based business ideas into real income.
Your ideas are a unique and hidden treasure
You are a walking fortune. Sounds cheezy? I know, sorry.
What I want to say to you is that you have a best-selling book or a super popular website stuck in your brain.
I don’t know what is your big passion. It may be hiking, yoga or collecting stamps. But there is something that you know LOTS about. And there ARE people that are looking to find this info on the net.
Believe me, there are so many people looking for so much different stuff, you won’t believe what crazy ideas you can make money with.
Where does the money come from?
If you are an expert in something – even if it is paper-ball-tossing! – you can present that information to others that are willing to bring value to the table in exchange.
That’s almost all the secret there is to make a business.
Start with the right tools
There are however, a multitude of wrong approaches you can take. Let me show you one example:
The answer: no.
For me personally, using Site Build It! is the way to success. The “downside”? You’ll have to invest a lot more work than what the easy promises on the internet might say.
You won’t lose unnecessary time working without a working business plan and without training. This is all included in the system.
The secret of creating more free time
You’ll read much phony stuff out there on the internet when you start researching good info about how to actually build an online business on something you love.
Some people will promise you great riches over night if you just sign up here… Blabla!
Don’t trust those easy promises!
If it was that easy, don’t you think everyone would not be driving a Benz right now…?
So, what works if the easy way out is not true, in my opinion?
Long, hard work… works! Be it online or in the real life. You will need to invest some serious time and commit to your online biz.
But who has the time?
No one. I had taken a few months off after graduating before jumping into the world of work. And there still was not enough time.
Get a trustworthy virtual helper. That’s what you will learn all over this site. What is a great challenge to you alone is much more doable with some (extremely affordable) help from outside.
On a side note:
The process of using this website building system is also doable alone. You can turn your online home based business ideas into reality, even alone. it will just take a lot of time.
However, it will take less time with a virtual assistant.
Why this system works so well with virtual assistants
The great feature of this system is that it is described in simple followable steps that are understandable even for someone without any training.
That makes it perfect for using it together with a virtual assistant. What actually takes the most time before working with a VA really pays off big time, is the time you need to invest into your VA for training. But the training wheels of the SBI-system drastically reduce this time.
You’ll reach the point where you make your online home based business ideas reality much, much sooner with some help.
