How Do I Become a Virtual Assistant (VA)?
Welcome on your new journey to become a Virtual Assistant (VA). Arriving here at the largest social network online for Virtual Assistants is a sure-fire way of learning all about becoming a VA.
There are many qualities and variables you should have to startup a successful Virtual Assistant business, from a having a solid history of administration work experience to having a strong network of like business individuals to learn and share business knowledge with. Every potential Virtual Assistant’s scenario will be different and it is seldom two are the same. This makes us so unique to one another which is why this is such a non-competitive industry to be in and very profitable.
It’s not always easy to switch from a real world corporate administrative working environment into the virtual world but once you do, you can be making anywhere from $25-$100 an hour depending on the services you offer. I am a specialty Internet Marketing VA and earn $125/hr and have a 4-6 month client waiting list. At our network, http://VAnetworking.com (which sponsors this Linkedin Group), we have some resourceful suggestions to making this corporate to virtual transition less confusing and very simple for any entrepreneur just like yourself.
