  4. Hi I'm Karen and I am in the process of researching VA's as a part time business as I work full time. I live in Oklahoma and am looking for a local VA networking group.
  5. Last week
  6. Introducing Jennifer Stokes

    Well friends, The contract has not yet been signed but may still happen. However, I did take on another client for a few short term projects and she did sign a contract! It was very exciting for me!!! Thank you all for your support! Best regards, Jennifer Stokes
  7. Hello Janera, Welcome to the forum. Nice meeting you and all the best on your business and website.
  8. VA, Editor, Writer New to group

    Hello Pat, Welcome to the forum! Would love to read some of your poems some day. All the best.
  9. Introduction

    Hello "Twisted" I am so sorry for your loss and that is such a beautiful name that it represents base on your history. Looking forward to hear from you again. All the best.
  10. Interested in Becoming a Virtual Assistant

    Welcome to the forum Jennifer, Like you I started out being a freelancer on a freelancing platform. You can keyword your searches in the search bar for questions that are helpful on your journey. All the best.
  11. How to discover your niche

    So true.. so true.. in my case it happened the same. It took me 3 years to realize what I am good at. I've tried all the niches. Learned about them all. I know I can do them all, but what fulfills me is just one thing ( or two) . But what Tawnya said must definitely be put to work.
  12. Introducing Jennifer Stokes

    Hello Jennifer, Welcome to the forum. Let us know how it turned out with your first prospective. All the best.
  13. My niche

    Hello. I am on this niche finding path too. I love proofreading and copywriting both related to website content and online course creation. Can this be a niche? Because I like to give tweaks to the written word while proofreading. I like to capture the essence that's in the mind of the writer, so to speak. Is it better to give them on a separate package or together? Thanks for your answers in advance! Sonia
  14. Hello and welcome to VAnetworking! I suggest googling, Virtual Assistant, and you will find lots of VA's websites and you can see what they put on theirs. To get started, I'd suggest, the main home page with how you can help clients, a contact page, a services page, your rates and testimonials. We have a few template examples here as well (see the samples on the right hand side): https://www.vanetworking.com/virtual-assistant-websites/
  15. I am looking at starting up a VA business and providing general administrative assistant services along with medical transcription work. A little bit about myself is that I have over 20 years experience working as an administrative assistant doing just mainly general admin work such as data entry, making travel arrangements, reception, some customer service, and most recently I started doing Medical Transcription work from home. I would like to be able to set up a website for myself once I have a company name picked for me, but as I have not specifically specialized in a particular area such as social media, graphic designer, etc. what I should be putting onto my website. I am hoping that I could get some feedback from someone here or perhaps be able to look at some samples of websites so that I have an idea of what to do. Thank you so much.
  16. Modifications

    Sorry for the delay, I imagine you are done with this project now. If he wants changes outside of the agreed contract, you can say to them, I can make the following changes at my hourly rate of xxx. Or make another contract for revisions, but if he keeps changing his mind, it would be best to make the changes at your hourly rate as you might get stuck in the same situation again.
  17. Pricing

    Hello, sorry I didn't see your post until now. Have you downloaded the free pricing worksheet that we have? It will help you figure out what you should charge. Grab it here: http://vanetworking.com/free

On a more personal note: What City/Town/State/Country are you from?: I'm from North Carolina, USA Are you married? How long?: Not married but I have been with my partner for 2 years. Any kids and how old? I have two daughters. 11 and 4 months. Hobbies & Interests: I really love getting food from food trucks and I'm a taco lover.

  25. Hi eveyrone! I'm Pat Hauldren. I'm farily new to VA work and this site. I started helping out a friend, who referred me to her friend, who referred me... and on it goes. Now I want to scale back just a tad (well, after I fix the hot water pipe, the ac, my car....) to concentrate on my own writing. I'm enjoying both, and the $ help. I'm in Texas, USA, but often get clients from Canada. Dunno how that happened, but it's nice and the further the better, right? I've published a few anthologies of short stories and poetry, as well as short stories, poems, articles, blogs, and working on novels. Thanks for letting me learn from this great resource! Pat
  26. Hi Everyone, My name is Shawn Gummerson and just like all of you i have decided i would like to become a VA. My company is Twisted Administrative Solutions. Here's a little background on myself and where the name Twisted came from. As a young girl, my mom remarried and i rebelled, ignoring my new step dad dad for the first couple years. One day he was calling me various weird names to get me to answer him (this had become a game to him by now), when he called out "Twisted" and i finally answered him. From that moment i was known as Twisted. He even introduced me to people like that, eventually being shortened to Ed. Now, jumping to 10 years ago, my Mom & Step dad both passed away suddenly and with my husband working in Alberta, i decided i wanted to get a dog. While i was at the SPCA, a woman came in and we started talking. She asked if i wanted to see her dog that she was surrendering. Of course i did! i went out to her car and fell in love with with her at first site, Turns out her name was Twist and i being Ed made Twisted come full circle. It was perfect timing and needless to say she came home with me that day. Twist would listen to me vent about my days and sit at my feet for the endless overtime hours. She would wag her tail when i would talk about being self employed and that way i could work from home and spend more time with her. Unfortuntly during the development stage of my business plan, Twist passed away. When thinking of a business name i wanted it to reflect the the both of us. To me the name Twisted represents loyalty, respect, hard work and understanding which is what i believe was the recipe for our success. I am excited about the next chapter in my life and look forward to connecting with new people, make new friends and building a successful career as a VA.
