My journey to becoming a virtual assistant (VA) was an interesting one, but by no means unique. Many VAs get interested in the business when they want to leave a corporate job, need additional income to support their families, or want to be mobile or location-independent.
As I was thinking about and setting up my VA business, I relied on a few resources to help me navigate these new waters. I read Lisa Morosky’s The Bootstrap VA and joined the Facebook group, where I started asking questions and networking with other VAs. I did hundreds of Google searches and took lots of notes hoping to put together a winning formula that would end with me getting some clients.
All in all, I’m almost two years into my business and things are going well. I love sharing my own experiences and knowledge to those who are also considering being a virtual assistant. While many of my blog posts are about working with a VA, they provide guidelines to potential VAs on what to do and not do.
Continuing on this theme, the amazing owners at One Woman Shop recently put together a compilation of feedback through interviews with virtual assistants for people who are interested in the profession. And I was included!
In this post, So You Wann Be A…Virtual Assistant, you’ll find answers to questions like “How did you get your start? What are other ways someone else can get started?” and “How do you normally work with clients or customers?” It’s an interesting look at the business from 5 different perspectives.
