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 VAs (the market leader to the Virtual Assistant industry since 2003) 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. For example, I am a specialty Internet Marketing VA and earn $125/hr. At our FREE networking #VAforum, we have some resourceful suggestions to making this corporate to virtual transition less confusing and very simple for any entrepreneur just like yourself.

Starting up a Virtual Assistant business requires a person who has an entrepreneurial spirit, is passionate about working from home and loves what they do for a living. These are the true tell-tale signs of a successful Virtual Assistant business in the works who just needs some inspirational instructional help to encourage and make it happen.
