  1. Just want to say hi to all! I'm Alannah and Im excited to be a part of this community. Looking forward in learning VA tips and hints from the gurus. cheers!
  2. Hi, I am excited to be here ! New path, tough journey and with confidence, here I am.
  3. Hello, My name is Leah and I currently own and run a VA business called Virtual Essentials. I live in Vancouver and am a former high-school teacher turned VA... I have done everything from event planning (currently planning a book launch) to admin, social media, website design, training and translation (English, French, German). Have a long history of writing, editing and proofreading (work I have done in the summers for many years) but officially launched my VA business in January 2013. You can find me at: www.virtualessentialsonline.com www.twitter.com/VirtualEssentia www.facebook.com/virtualessentialsonline Looking forward to VA Virtuosos in November and in the meantime, feel free to check out Virtual Essentials or say hi!
  4. Hi: My name is Vicki and I have 27+ years of Administrative/Clerical/Data Specialist and Customer Relations experience. I have worked for a major airline where the management asked me to take the lead in a new department because they knew that quite frankly, I am a self-starter and not afraid of change.​ ​ I have also worked for a global travel management company, where customer relations was priority, while focusing on issue resolution and on-time delivery. I have worked for a local dairy handling customer inquiries, collections and general accounting responsibilities. I started my work history by working for a local school system where communication with staff and the general public was key.​ Miss Tawnya, I spoke with you a week or so ago. Thank you so much for calling me. I registered previously as Suthrngirl51 (have new tools and new email - so here I am!) I have my website up (almost-issue with Domain and Hosting package that I'm working on! Solutions!!) Just a little about me personally: I am a Christian - and a single Mom. (who needs to get working - like now..right now!! I am a Survivor of Domestic Abuse and the dreaded words Breast Cancer. I am here today (7 year survivor) by the grace of the One above! No, don't feel sorry for me...the keyword is Survivor!! I believe it is vital to not only have impeccable communication skills but also listening skills, in order to give full attention to the customer or client, all while providing a professional demeanor, especially during what may be stressful situations. I can tell you from my past positions, all have been beat-the-clock and pressure cooker environments that could 'spin' around on a dime. I learned to multi-task and prioritize. With jobs hard to come by in today's world and because quite simply I need to feed my children, I decided why not start my own business. BIG ISSUE - This is where I believe the word SOLUTION is so essential! My experience has not only been about meeting those deadlines that we all face on the job, but also in troubleshooting job-related issues, with the next steps of offering solutions and then to implementing those solutions into action plans. I also have a passion for writing. I have written along-side other writers/authors on a social media website in an encouragment forum. It was very rewarding to interact with the general public with my personal goal of encouraging and hopefully providing inspiration. With this being said, I also would be available for any creative writing or ghost writing/articles or blog posting that you might need! My skills also include Administrative Support tasks including data entry, typing, receptionist skills. the thread through-out my 27 years is Customer Relations. My personal goal is to provide excellent communications both in writing and either via the phone or via Skype or other conferencing tool. I am very exciting to be here among all of YOU wonderful VA's and I look forward in learning which is also so important. I plan to be a sponge and soak up as much knowledge here as my brain will allow. I hope you will say hello. You can contact me also at Vicki-sasolutions@outlook.com Remember, if there an office related issue, there is a solution! I am about finding and implementing those SOLUTIONS! If anyone here needs help - even for a few hours on a task that you are overwhelmed with, I would love to speak with you. Regards, Vicki
  5. Hi everybody! I started my VA business on this site back in 2007. Tawnya and the rest of the VA's got me so busy that I wasn't able to find the time to pop in any longer. Probably a good problem to have! Now, I'm still as busy but I miss the camaraderie of this group. I look forward to helping out where I can and interacting with all of you.
  6. Greetings! My name is JC Andrews and I am the owner of The Ledger Virtual Bookkeeping Company in Dallas, TX. I am glad I found this forum from another VA's website I am looking forward to another way to communicate and connect with other VA's. Learning from experienced VA's as well as newbies. I am not new to the world of accounting but very new to the VA world. Thanks, JC
  7. Greetings, VAs - I'm Susan Singer, a Californian living in Chicagoland (don't ask!). I've been an independent contractor in the past. Then, what was supposed to be a three-month "gig" turned into a three-year direct employment stint. During that time, naturally, my clients moved on and once I was done implementing the program I was hired to do, it was necessary to begin again from the beginning! I only recently learned of VANetworking and was gratified to see how much this sector has grown and how vibrant it's become. I specialize in Operations Management, Governance (mostly non-profits) and am a certified Project Manager. If you're interested, you can visit my site, my LinkedIn profile, and, of course I'm on G+ as well...sometimes. I'm a news and politics "junkie" and have a strong interest in renewable energy, so sometimes I get into the weeds on those topics. Please be patient with me ;-) I look forward to meeting you through this forum, Susan Singer, SCPM singerscpm.com
  8. Hi! I'm Breanna & I just joined this forum. I wanted to introduce myself before I take a look around. I'm 26, & have been doing some freelance virtual assistant jobs via elance recently... I'm looking to expand my VA services & I'm BEYOND ready for it to take off. Let's see, some more about me... I live in Kentucky & have previously been a nanny, a preschool teacher, & an administrative assistant. Virtual assistant seems to be my niche- I love helping somebody within their business, & watching them achieve their goals- there's nothing better, right? Being a part of that success is a huge gift within itself. Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend! Breanna http://virtualassistantbre.blogspot.com
  9. Hello everyone, I am excited to find this community. I am looking for ways to utilize my skills in which I can provide support with the flexibility to work from home. I am able to provide excellent service with computer knowledge, organizational abilities, business intelligence, strong communication skills, and the ability to understand and execute instructions while working independently. I am excited to find this community where I can learn from experienced virtual assistants, and build a client base.
  10. I have today officially started my own Virtual PA business, working out of my new home office courtesy of my lovely husband (who I have to say has worked very hard and made a really good job of it). Until recently I was employed as a Directors' Assistant/Head of HR & Administration for the UK headquarters of a global engineering plastic company where I had worked in various positions for the past 18 years. Last year I was suddenly taken extremely ill and ended up spending a month in hospital. Recovery has been a long and frustrating process but I am finally on my way to being back to my old self. I consider myself lucky to be here and after being given this second chance, so to speak, I decided to become self-employed and do the parts of my job that I enjoy while creating a different lifestyle that meant I could spend more time with my 6 year old son. I am in the process of marketing and advertising my services, joining networking groups (both locally and online) and basically contacting everyone I know to tell them what I am doing. Obviously this is only day 1, so I am yet to find my first customer, but I am optimistic and very resilient :-) I look forward to getting involved in relevant discussions and hope that I can contribute based on my previous work experience, if not from the perspective of my new role.

I know I'll have plenty of support and encouragement from the folks in this forum, and hopefully I can contribute something that will make your lives better and more productive. Thanks so much!
