    Thank You Tawnya! That is exactly why I searched for this group again. I always had a warm welcome with a good feeling to participate when questions were asked to respond with confidants and feel like I was part of a Great Group of Friendly Professionals!!

    Thank you Jason! I didn't consider the business cards, but that is a great idea. I have yet to make a Facebook page but plan to do so. My website is up and running. www.redoakva.site Which is exciting. I have joined a few Facebook groups as well. I hoping to gain some work soon. Again thank you for the encouragement and advice, it is much appreciated! Rachal

    Your mother-in-law is a wise woman You are equally as wise to start a website. you'll see that this venture can attract a lot of attention. Start on some free advertising sites to get attention of people. Meanwhile start a Facebook page as well. Make sure your competitive with the market, Maybe 10% cheaper, that's what I'm doing. JoinIng groups will help as well. This group is a perfect start. Distribute business cards at places that have bowls that collect them, or have boards where you can post your business. Its a lot of work but I suspect you know this already myself as well as others here I'm sure will be happy to help you as much as we all can. Good luck,and post your success. Jason.

    Welcome to VAnetworking! I agree with Tawnya as to creating graphics to see how long they take you to create so you can build your pricing structure.

    I would use whatever you are comfortable with. My Accountant tells me what I have to use and no reason you can't tell your clients that Sage is what you will be using for them. It's your business, make it work how you want it to.

    Wow! So glad you love horses!! I have owned horses for 19 yrs and counting. Part of my efforts as a VA would go to support the purchase of a farm as my original farm at to be sold when I divorced.

    Good suggestion. I wanted to offer free designs to establish VA in exchange for testimonials and be able to build an interesting portfolio. On my 2 years reading... I saw many doing that. I would be glad to contribuate in this group too.

    Hi Jason, welcome to VAnetworking! Looks like your FB cover photo appeared blurry because you posted the mobile link. I've updated your post for you. As Tawnya said, you'll want to post engaging content consistency on your Facebook Page.

    Thanks Tawnya, that is a great idea! I am interested in several of the services as well and currently am doing some research on them to see how I can apply my skills. I will definitely keep this in mind.

    Thank you. I am really excited to be here! I am currently looking for sponsors within the pharmaceutical and healthcare-related industries. I have had some contacts and even communicated with some but we never seem to get anywhere! They appear interested and then they stop replying! I don't want to pester them, so I tend to stop contacting them after a while. I feel a bit stuck at the moment!!

    I found this post online. I was the author 11 years ago. I have since changed the name of my company but I still primarily support churches and nonprofit organizations. I was blessed to see this post...It brings me joy.

    Welcome to VAnetworking! I don't really have anything to add to what Tawnya said. You can definitely utilize your real estate and paralegal background. There are Real Estate VAs (REVA) and also paralegal VAs. @Tawnya Sutherland, is there a Real Estate VA resource site? I thought there was.

    Fabulous, I love animals as well!

    Hi Danielle, thank you. Currently we only have a miniature beagle and a 75 gallon fish tank. However, I love animals and once we have more room, I will drive my husband crazy with all the animals I bring home. In the past, I have had numerous dogs and cats and I have also owned rats.

    Hiya and welcome to our network. What a great niche to get started in. Block time in to work specifically on finding clients. Good job on getting your websites up and running. Nothing is more credible in eyes of your prosective clients than having a storefront. Here's a few of my blog posts on finding clients. Any questions just ask us!

    Hi Cindee, welcome to VAnetworking! Roseville is a nice area, I love that they have a Top Golf and go to it whenever I'm in the area. Hope to see you on tomorrow's VAinsiders Call!

    There are 2 ways to jump ship and become a VA... 1. Since you make good money I recommend to continue working until you can save enough money to be off work 3 months (that will give you time to work on getting your business up and running without having to worry about finances). 2. Start working part-time on your business now. Work evenings/weekends or whenever you can find time to start putting together all your marketing materials like your website, etc. to get yourself set up, ready to take on new clients. Easy way to do this since you are still working and have monies rolling in would be to invest in my Virtual Assistant Career training program. It will hand hold you through the process and speed up your learning curve. Plus it includes your website! Slowly start taking on new clients along the way. At some point it will be too much working a full-time job and starting up a business part-time and you'll know when that happens. That's when you finally take the leap into full time business and quit that corporate job! If you have any questions, just ask.

    Thank you to everyone .... I have come along way since last week finding the resources I need and appreciating the input from each and everyone of you!! This forum is a wonderful form of communication and feedback. I hope in no time at all I will look forward to creating my VA niche and also helping out on small projects as they come up.

    So sorry I missed your comment. I currently offer services for account payables, receivables, customer service, data entry, collections and billing. I just finished training on Pinterest and Tailwind through working as an apprentice. Really excited to implement what I have learned. Hopefully, this will open some doors for me.

    Welcome to VAnetworking! I don't have any experience in the proofreading and editing industry to answer your question. You may even want to post this again as it's own standalone thread so more people see it.

    This is so great. I am so happy for you. God is just awesome, he always knows just what we need and when we need it. Thanks for the inspiration. Cynthia
