I am so excited to have found this forum because I am in the process of starting my VA business and I know that there are a lot of veteran VAs in here!
My VA business is called The Pro Nerd (The Professional Nerd). Why? Because, well, I AM a nerd and I'm proud of it. I like to have a sense of whimsy in everything I do. I recently finished my website and I am currently working on a business plan and learning about marketing. For the past five years I have worked in healthcare admitting and I did not find the job satisfying. I am someone who likes to be challenged and I am creative. I have always wanted to start my own business but I was never sure what service I could provide. I then learned about virtual assisting and EUREKA! I knew it was something that I would enjoy.
I am new to the home business world and I could use all of the knowledge that I can soak up from successful VAs. I have no idea how to get clients. I am good at putting a business together, making a brand and marketing....but I am a TERRIBLE salesperson. [/size][/size][/size]
I'm so excited to get to know everyone and wish you a happy holiday!
