  1. Thank you so much to all of you who have taken the time to reply to my post. I am feeling alot more optimistic after hearing what you have to say and you have made some excellent points for me to think on. Trying to make this decision is very difficult - leaving a good salary and steady position at a great employer. I feel I should be happy with what I have and stick with it but this desire to try something new and be my own boss is huge for me.
  2. Hello to all of you, I have been very busy reading the forums and doing loads of research as I try to learn about the VA industry. I am currently employed but my dream is to be my own boss and becoming a VA seems like a perfect idea for me. I have over 25 years of administrative experience, have been a certified law clerk for 10 years and am also a certified Human Resource Professional. I feel I have alot of skills that could be marketable in this industry. However, my research is not giving me alot of confidence that there is actually any decent money to be made. I have found alot of info about hourly billing rates etc., but what would a VA reasonably expect to be able to bill weekly? Is it unreasonable to earn $50K per year? I have found some established VA's who have been kind enough to provide me with their experiences and I am getting the impression the average earnings are closer to $15K - $20K per year. I would be so grateful if you could provide me with some of your perspectives on this. I am eager to try it and I really do want to make this type of change in my life, but until I can have a better idea of the earning potential, I just don't know where to go from here. Thanks in advance for any insight. Barb
