  1. It's a pleasure to meet you Julian, it's great to meet a fellow Caribbean VA. Thank you Danielle for recommending the free consultation, and thanks to you as well Julian for the advice and article link.It was greatly appreciated. Will definitely read the article and put into practice what is recommended.
  2. I would really appreciate some advice. If someone is transitioning from full time education to becoming a VA and has limited money, which would you recommend: 1) Upgrade to a VAinsider, try to hopefully find clients from the job board, or network and make friends so that maybe fellow VAs can refer clients to you, if they are fully booked. Then use from the income to purchase the VAC program later or 2) Make the extra sacrifice and purchase the full VAC and 1 yr VAinsider program and everything else, including finding clients and networking with fellow VAs, will fall into place? Thank you in advance.
  3. I'm trying to stay as active and relevant on social media as much as I can
  4. Hi my name is Shauwana and I'm from Trinidad and Tobago. I've been a part time VA for a little over 2 years on Freelancer.com but I have been a full time Office Assistant/Clerk for over 5 year in the Finance and Banking industry. I have also been a Data Entry Clerk for 10 years in the IT and Financial/Banking industry. I have no kids but my older sister's 5 kids make me feel like they are more mine than hers, and I love them dearly. I'm not married and recently lost both parents and the family dog. In my spare time I love to read and write stories and poems and repair broken technology. I'm open minded, excited about life and thankful to God for every day that I awake, because I get another opportunity to make a difference, no matter how small. As I was contemplating my next career move, it was declared that my country was in a recession and because me, along with a few of my other coworkers, were 'new' contract workers (less than 10 years contract work for the company), we were let go. I'm currently looking to build a steady, solid clientele willing to pay what I'm worth, and that is becoming a challenge because I am not in the US and there are VAs from the Philippines and India offering their services for $5 or less an hour. I was thinking about going into business with my other former coworker and having a full service business, but finding the RIGHT clients are hard and being a VA working in Trinidad is practically non-existent. I have a simple website about me and my services for now: bestvirtualassistanthire.weebly.com. Any help or suggestions from anyone would be greatly appreciated.
