  1. Hello! I am very excited to introduce myself! My name is Casey,, I'm a first time Mum of a little baby girl and I'm venturing from my career to begin as a VA. I have over 10 years' experience in Administration, with my most recent experience being in Real Estate. As a Property Manager, I managed 180 properties in my portfolio. As a VA, I am offering data entry, letter writing and mailing service, debt collection, Condition Report writing and Account Management. I look forward to where this journey will take me, and hoping I can stay home with my bub and have the perfect work/life balance.
  2. I'm Raychelle. I own a virtual assistant business called Kvasir Virtual. We offer administrative and creative services to start-ups, professionals, and healthcare providers. Happy to be here!
  3. Hello everyone! I'm Chuck (Some call me Charles, that's okay too). I am just getting started in the virtual world of assisting as one of those rare males in this profession. I don't have a business URL yet, but I am working diligently to to get that up and going. I have spent the last 20 years helping businesses become better through leading up as an employee, informal business coaching, and advising on system/process implementation to improve different aspects of business. My business is general virtual assistance helping small, medium, and large businesses Maximize the BIG THREE Es of Business, Efficiency, Effectiveness , and Execution! My education is management information systems and psychology. This education coupled with my experience in the military and the business world helps me to assist others accomplish what needs to be done in a technological world where change is the number one crippling factor. I specialize in business systems, social media implementation, web design, and tech support. My wife and I currently live in Vero Beach, Florida. I am originally from Lenoir, North Carolina. We have been married for 26 years and have two kids away at university. Our daughter is studying veterinary medicine at the University of Louisville, and our son is in the masters program for classical vocals and composition at the Boston Conservatory. YES, we are extremely proud of them! Being the nerd that I am, I am actually turning my hobbies into a virtual assistant business. My hobbies are actually web design, social media profile initiation, and business coaching for friends, family, and associates. So, I figured since I do this stuff in my free time, why not go professional and get paid to do it! Like they say, "If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life." This does lead me to a question though. Has anyone else experienced burn out, or other pitfalls, from the psychological shift in doing something as a hobby but now having the responsibility of getting paid for it? I would love to hear your thought or experiences around this. Please leave a response, because I really don't want to get headed the wrong direction! Thank you all for being here. We can all work together to make one another better! Chuck Kanupp

  6. Hi everyone, My name is Toni. So excited to get to know you all! I’m new to the Virtual Assistant business. I currently work from home through a temp agency, but really want to be my own boss. My specialties and 20 years experience are in account payables, invoicing, billing, customer service and debt collections. I would really like to specialize in social media management as well. My husband and I moved from Nv to Northern Id 2yrs ago to live our dream of living off grid. We have 4 children between the two of us, all grown and on their own. My employer from Nv was thrilled to have me work from home through a temp agency when we moved. In order to get our homestead going the way we want, I need to supplement our income more. I love helping people and take pride in my work, this is what led me to being a VA. Being a VA, I can continue to work from home and have time for our new adventure. I came across VA Networking through a search on Facebook.

  8. Hi Everyone, I wanted to very briefly introduce myself and my services. I am from London (UK) and recently moved to the sunny island of Barbados where I will be working in a virtual/remote capacity. I have in excess of 15 years' experience in administration, event management and logistics, acquired in London, Europe and the Caribbean. I have worked as an Administrator, Personal Assistant, Project Support, Event Manager, Marketing Coordinator and Logistics Manager, in a number of sectors, to include; Investment Banking (10 years), Agency, Retail and Real Estate. I am offering services as a VA and also Virtual Property Management for vacation rental homes. I am new to the VA scene, but have been working as a Virtual Property Manager for 10+ years, as a sideline. On the property management side, I have a few clients, but of course welcome more . On the VA side, I am starting from ground zero. It seems like quite a long and tough process to get going in the VA world, and I am particularly finding that there is a strong bias for people who are based in the USA and that anyone considering a VA outside of the US is looking for cheap labor in Asia. So, I have taken everyone's advice and started reaching out to previous business contacts to spread the word about my services. Thanks for taking the time to read my post and I wish all the VAs in this group every success. Keisha KW Empire Limited www.kw-empire.weebly.com
  9. Hello everyone! I'm brand new to the VA community/business...still working on stepping away from my full-time job as I prepare for retirement and full-time travelling/housesitting. I'm not sure what I want to offer as VA services; I'm a freelance proofreader/editor, and I've got 20 years of experience in online/telephone customer support, along with being a pharmacist and (long ago) a chemical engineer. My plan is to retire from my current position and move to Mexico or Ecuador, where the weather is better than it is here (Eastern Canada...pretty chilly in the winter...NOW!) and it's less expensive to live. From there, I'll do international house/pet sitting till I don't enjoy it anymore. So I need a location-independent source of income and I thought being a VA would be ideal. Hoping to chat with a few of you - get ideas about how to proceed, etc. I just saw this template, so I guess I'll fill it out: Your Name: Jacquie Your Website URL (if applicable): jacquiedoucette.com Years in Business: <1 Description of your Business, including any specialties: I guess my specialties will be customer service, bookkeeping, editing/proofreading. I'm pretty much an A-type person, so give me a job and I'll get it done. What City/Town/State/Country are you from?: near Ottawa, ON, Canada Are you married? How long?: married for 23.5 yrs Any kids and how old? two daughters - 22 and 20 yrs old Hobbies & Interests: I LIVE for volleyball!! Also enjoy walking my dog, reading (novels, not non-fiction) and I love to travel, though I haven't really done a lot, compared to some people.
  10. Hello Everyone! I am a Virtual Assistant based in South Africa. My journey into this awesome "Virtual World" happen with the birth of my son and the company I was working for at the time didn't want to get a temp so I set myself up at home to do everything I did in the office and that is when the light bulb moment happened Set up an office at home resigned and have never looked back, nothing better than being your own boss, determining your income and getting to be there for your kids everyday. Excited about being a part of this community and look forward to getting to know fellow VA's.

  22. Hi, I want to know if you're a VA for a long time and want to level up on your field. Would a certification be necessary like IAAP or ASAP?

  25. Now that you have found ways on how to start your Virtual Assistant business. You are armed and eager to work with your ideal clients. But you keep wondering, Are you still operating as an employee? should a virtual assistant provide a Resume? can you be a Jack/Jill of all trades? Yes, these questions might still be lurking at the back of your head or maybe the forefront! So here I will share my opinion as well as what I have since learned on my journey so we can clear up these 3 common misconceptions in the virtual assistant industry. Are you still operating as an employee? You are so excited now that you did your first consultation, but that one question came up on the call if you should ask your prospective client to take care of your taxes and insurances. No! Do not do that, because you are only being contracted to do the task or service that you are offering and being paid for. So to tell it as it is, you are a home-based, independent contractor, that normally sets your prices, your hours to complete a specific task, as well as manage your own insurance, as well as taxes. So no way are you an employee! Should a virtual assistant provide a Resume? I have seen this posted so many times on social media. I also see prospective clients posting this on social media when they are hiring a VA, that the VA who is applying for a position should also provide a resume'. Now you can imagine the confusion this will cause when this subject matter is not addressed correctly. Remember that because you are an independent contractor that the best sorts of reference that you will and should always provide are your testimonials from past clients or references. Can you be a Jack/Jill of all trades? Yes, it's always nice to try and go the extra mile to accommodate your clients when they have come to you about doing a particular task or service. But, you can very well become overwhelming to learn a new task or burn out trying to please your client when you know very well this type of task is not your cup of tea. That is why its always good to outsource or recommend your client to someone else who may be a good fit at this time. Nothing in itself is wrong with attempting to try the task, but would you rather do this when you can be very well helping a client who needs your expertise at this time? I would love to hear other misconceptions that you have experienced or heard of before. Until then, Juli.
