  1. Hiya Rose and welcome! Good looking website, way to get that done as a website shows credibility and builds trust in your prospective clients.
  2. Have you logged into your member lobby yet to access all the startup resources to help get you started? There is a video in there called “What to expect in a career as a Virtual Assistant”. I recommend watching that first to see you have skill sets to offer services virtual to clients. And welcome to our network! Any questions just ask.
  3. Hiya @pwalker15 and welcome! We are a network full of resources and training for Virtual Assistants. We are not a company that subcontracts. Have you logged in your member lobby yet to grab our startup resources in there? If not, I suggest starting there.
  4. Awesome you have Pinterest and Tailwind training. Did you do a training program or just learn under someone else as an apprentice?
  5. 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?).
  6. Hiya Revi and welcome! Looking forward to getting to know you more through your participation here so please share more about you with us! Danielle is right, some of your images are blurry. They look like I should be wearing 3D glasses on them to view same so you'll want to fix that as first impressions are important to a prospecting client.
  7. Hiya Raychelle and welcome to our network. Looking forward to getting to know you more through your participation here. Enjoy!
  8. Hi Hannah and welcome, so glad you found us! I worked from home as a VA and raised my 3 kids and loved every minute of it so always thrilled to hear others doing it too. I would include it on your website you are a Notary Public in state of WA. You could maybe do packages for locals within the state, who knows? If anything it will contribute to your credibility and hopefully gain you trust with the virtual prosepcts. You can easily change it and take it off your website if you don't want to offer it down the road. Explain what you mean when you say it will make naming your business more difficult? Glad to have you onboard.
  9. Welcome! I see your posts are getting caught up in our spam filter probably because you keep adding your URL in the post. I recommend putting that into your signature instead and then your posts won't get deleted. Looking forward to getting to know you more through your participation here
  10. Hi welcome! Glad you found us and hope you'll find all the answers to your question at our network. Don't forget to log in to your member lobby and grab your freebies too! Have you every thought of asking this sign company if they'd let you work virtually for them? If not, maybe you could do that and they be your first client. Explain to them the cost savings they'd get hiring you as their virtual assistant Read more here:https://www.vanetworking.com/virtual-assistant-cost-comparison/
  11. Hi Anna and welcome! Glad you found us and hope you'll find all the answers to your question at our network. Don't forget to log in to your member lobby and grab your freebies too! On another note, are you working virtual for this general manager? If not, maybe you could do that and they be your first client. Explain to them the cost savings they'd get hiring you as their Virtual Assistant Read more here on that topic.
  12. Hiya Kym and welcome! Let us know how we can help you and we will lead you in the right directions. Enjoy the forum! A wealth of information here
  13. There is a wealth of free information located here at the boards. You can either use the search function to find exactly what you are looking for or look at the forum topics to find areas of information you'd like to read. I usually just come in daily and click "Unread Content" upper right corner and if I see stuff of interest to me I read it. There is also a bunch of free resources inside your VA Member Lounge. Login here to access with same username/password as you use here at the forum. If you are looking for info on something particular and can't find it, just create a new post under the appropriate forum and you'll get some answers from our members. Enjoy!
  14. Hi Andrew and welcome! Yes a wealth of information here in the forum. If you want a startup checklist, check inside your member area for the one there to download.
  15. How long did it take to finish the 3 tasks? You should be making $25-50/hour as a Virtual Assistant. If you are not, you'll never make a profit. Log in to your member area and download the Pricing Formula Worksheet. There is also a video in there to watch to help you figure out your pricing. Being a business owner you really need to know your overhead and profits.
  16. Hiya Alonda and welcome! So great to see your excitement and enthusiasm for your new start up as a VA business. I remember those days when I first started and how passionate I was to make it work! You are what you create! Looking forward to getting to know you more through your participation here
  17. Hi Sue and welcome! Looking forward to getting to know you further through your participation here.
  18. Welcome Jodie! Refreshing to see your website. You are very niched as a copywriter for beauty business professionals. Great specialty and way to narrow down your target market. I love online marketing too and looking forward to networking with you here and sharing our knowledge. Hope to get to know you more through your participation here
  19. Hi Maralee and welcome! Have you watched the video yet on Becoming a VA plus 10+ resources I share inside your member area? That video if you fast forward it to middle explains all the free and some paid resources I use to run my VA business. You can also find some of them here.
  20. Have you thought about using Google Voice? (It's free) I use RingCentral because it's an affordable way to get a 1-800#. It's about $150/year and worth it as I get a ton more calls being it's free 1-800. People don't like paying long distance rates.
  21. Hiya Elizabeth and welcome! Whatever questions you have do throw our way and we will do our best to answer. Enjoy the boards!
  22. As stated in our last coaching call, these are a good start but they are not sized correctly for a website so check with your developer on size dimensions required. I just started a contest at 99designs to get our logo redesigned so will be excited to share the top 3 with all of you to vote on in 5 days or so.
  23. Hi Christina and welcome! If you have any question just ask us
  24. My creative type is Visionary. Imagining the impossible. Creative Strengths: Full of big ideas, ability to see potential and possibility everywhere Untapped Potential: Using your visions to fuel consistent daily action Ideal Collaborator: The Thinker You live in a world of infinite possibilities, preferring to see things not as they are but as they could be. You know that life is limited only by the boundaries of your own beliefs, and you’re driven to push the limits of, well, everything. Emotional, passion-driven, and full of ideas, the VISIONARY combines a vivid imagination with a desire for practical solutions. Your introspective and intuitive nature is balanced by a keen interest in the world around you and a desire to contribute to society. Charismatic and expressive, you love sharing your ideas and visions with others and creating community around shared values and ideals. Your greatest gift? The ability to see the spark of potential in everything and everyone, and to inspire others to see it, too. You’re able to guide people toward an invisible horizon with a rare generosity of spirit and strength of conviction. Don’t get stuck in the dreaming stage, VISIONARY. Your greatest challenge—and true power—lies in learning to take consistent daily action to create the future you envision. Seek out the “voice of reason” of the THINKER type to help you take a grounded, rational approach to your creative work. The THINKER’s deep perception and probing intellect lend a powerful clarity that can bring your visions into sharper focus.
  25. I like the first one just looks more modern than the others.
