    Hey guys,

    First of all I hope 2016 was a rewarding year for everyone. Why don't we use this opportunity to tip our VAs, even if it's just a small amount.

    These folks work extremely hard for their families to get by, let's give them a merry xmas and the best starts to the new year,

    Best wishes to everyone for 2017

    Get a good VA, pay them above average and treat them with respect.... You'll have a happy worker all year round, tips are for waiters

    I'm guessing so, I don't speak to my VAs from 20th December to around the 5th Jan every year... They get paid anyway so yes, they have fun and work hard

    And yet you're here replying to my thread whilst my VAs are still working, extremely happy, content, and scaling by business up...

    I'm a fan of gifting at Christmas to those that work for me during the year from the mailman to the yard guy to the VA to the guy who works at the convenience store where I get a coffee now and then.

    Kudos to you, OP, for showing appreciation.

    Last year my mailman got a putter that has a sticker price of 149.00. Best mailman I ever had.

    People give me funny looks when I buy 40 $25 Amazon gift cards. But the happy looks on the faces of people such as the woman who is always running the booth at the parking garage, the police officer directing traffic through the school zone in the pouring rain, the barista who always makes my coffee just right, the cashier I make sure I catch every time I grocery shop because she is fast and efficient, the maintenance staff at the apartment complex, etc etc. It shows you give a shit. And makes you memorable.
