  1. Greetings All, I am a newbie from Laurel, Maryland. I settled on the idea of being a virtual assistant about 3 weeks ago. I have not started my business; however, I am looking to do so soon. I am currently a full-time government employee looking to retire in 8 years (or earlier!) I have not decided on a specialty but mostly likely will be providing some form of business management services. I have 20+ years of experience in financial grants management and a B.A. degree in accounting. I may pursue a Project Management Certification but will need to know if it will truly benefit me in my VA business. On a personal note, I'm married with 3 kids (24, 20 and 15). My primary interest is traveling for pleasure. I'm hoping this business venture will afford me the opportunity and flexibility to travel the world when I retire (or at least the Caribbean - Lol!). Over the past few weeks I've been absorbing as much as I can by carving out a few hours at the end of each day. I had no idea that being a virtual assistant was so popular. The amount of information available is extremely overwhelming. I've joined quite a few VA Facebook groups and I am working on figuring out the best single source for all of my VA training. Until then, I have been reading eBooks and watching free webinars to learn some of the information I need to get my business started. Well, enough about me! I look forward to learning from everyone in this forum. Thank you for accepting my request to join!
