    I have many years experience working in academic sciences admin (within a university Faculty of Medicine). I decided to make this my niche. I am able to do medical reports, transcription, billing and scheduling, etc. I also do science-focused events. I work full time (and I have also been studying!), so I have struggled finding clients - and finding time!. I would really appreciate some tips on finding clients. In fact, though I registered here a couple of years ago, I had not actually ever logged in. I am also looking for information on how to get sponsors for the events. My main website is http://organizedbizness.com/ My VA website is http://organizedva.com/

    I am a real life (RL) administrative assistant in the legal department at a very large corporation. I have a bachelor's degree in legal studies but have yet to utilize any of the things I learned in four years of college. There's no room for growth here, and the stigma of administrative assistant is haunting me even though I apply for paralegal work internally, I keep getting rejected. The irony is, if I left to do paralegal work outside at another firm, I would make LESS money because this role pays surprisingly well. I am bored and miserable though. How can I market myself as a virtual assistant with paralegal skills? I also have extensive real estate title knowledge. I'd like to specialize in the real estate virtual assistance field so, how do I jump ship?

    Hello! I am very excited to introduce myself! My name is Casey,, I'm a first time Mum of a little baby girl and I'm venturing from my career to begin as a VA. I have over 10 years' experience in Administration, with my most recent experience being in Real Estate. As a Property Manager, I managed 180 properties in my portfolio. As a VA, I am offering data entry, letter writing and mailing service, debt collection, Condition Report writing and Account Management. I look forward to where this journey will take me, and hoping I can stay home with my bub and have the perfect work/life balance.

    Hello, I worked as a VA subcontractor over 6 years ago and than life changed. I did some traveling and no longer have any of my previous documents as a VA. Prior to becoming a VA I have had over 10-15 years Admin/Office Support experience. I am now back and getting set up again. I don't know what has changed with this networking group, so I am asking for assistant. How do get started and go about submitting for subcontracting work? Thank you for your time!

    Hello and thank you for having me! My name is Hannah I'm in my late-twenty's and I'm just starting out my VA business, I've been doing a TON of research and I stumbled across this awesome site! I've been working in an admin role for 3 years in the financial industry and I really enjoy my work. My husband and I want to have more kids in the near future and I'm really needing and wanting the flexibility of working from home and setting my own hours to make that happen. I've decided on bookkeeping, general admin, marketing & technical support services that I will be offering to future clients. I'm also a notary public in Washington state & have been doing mobile loan signing services for the mortgage industry, my question is should I include that within my website & listed in the services I offer even though I wouldn't be able to provide that as a "virtual" service? My thinking behind wanting to include that is because of the extensive background checks, being bonded, licensed and E&O insured would instill confidence in potential clients that I've got my stuff together and can be trusted with their financials. Also it would be great to showcase that service for potential local clients, but I'm wondering if it'll be too much going on and makes naming my business difficult. Any feedback is welcomed & appreciated Thank you, Hannah

    Hi everyone, My name is Toni. So excited to get to know you all! I’m new to the Virtual Assistant business. I currently work from home through a temp agency, but really want to be my own boss. My specialties and 20 years experience are in account payables, invoicing, billing, customer service and debt collections. I would really like to specialize in social media management as well. My husband and I moved from Nv to Northern Id 2yrs ago to live our dream of living off grid. We have 4 children between the two of us, all grown and on their own. My employer from Nv was thrilled to have me work from home through a temp agency when we moved. In order to get our homestead going the way we want, I need to supplement our income more. I love helping people and take pride in my work, this is what led me to being a VA. Being a VA, I can continue to work from home and have time for our new adventure. I came across VA Networking through a search on Facebook.

    Awesome you have Pinterest and Tailwind training. Did you do a training program or just learn under someone else as an apprentice?

    It's imperative that you can explain what you do for a living easily and quickly as friends and family are your hottest referral market as your loved ones love talking about you. Besides if you can't explain it, it will tug on your confidence and bring negativity to your business. The easiest explanation of how to explain what you do for a living I learned at Tracey Blanchfield-D'Aviero's VA Conference wherein she was talking about Anti-Elevator Speeches. If you ever have a chance to go to her conference I encourage you not to miss it so vital to your business education www.vajot.com/thevaconference Here's Tracey's handy template to help you explain what you do for a living. I want each and every one of you to fill in the blanks and share your anti-elevator speech in the comments below: I help ___________________ (who are they?) by ____________________________________ (what specifically do you do?) so they can ____________________________(what can they do if you help them?).

    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.

    I've done something similar with clients in the past. I bluntly asked them, how much could you afford monthly for a Virtual Assistant? Once they gave me the amount I wrote up the best services I'd offer them that would help their business the most that month (give them the best bang for their buck).

    LOL! I am a web designer and I will not even start thinking about touching anything from scratc, wordpress, whatever for less than $500! If you are going to offer this service you really need to look at design forums no offense but if you do know what you are doing that 200-300 is just shooting yourself in the foot

    In the email I state: Attached please find your invoice for the month of XXX for virtual assistant services. To ensure you hold a spot as a client with us for the upcoming month (and don't go onto our waiting list), payment is appreciated by the 25th so we can schedule our clients accordingly.
