Hi Everyone: I am a new Virtual Assistant. My name is Tamara Williams and I am from Kingston, Jamaica. I came across this forum on one of my many Google searches. I came across persons in the industry last year so I setup my WordPress website from July 2014. You can see it here, http://tamarawilliamsvaservices.com. However, it is very challenging because I am new to the VA industry as well as to being an entrepreneur. I am standing at the bottom of a steep hill for this learning curve so I am hoping to get as much help as possible from my peers. You can learn more about me here, http://tamarawilliamsvaservices.com/about-virtual-assistant. However, I really want to be my own boss. So I decided to take it step by step. I decided not to start a LLC but to plan to do it part-time as an independent contractor. That way I can get practical experience before setting up a business. My background is in I.T. but I am not interested in offering any of those services. So far based on the blogs I follow, webinars I watched and some help from peers I set up my list of services. The ones I have so far are: WordPress Blog Posting Email Newsletter Setup and Creation eBook (PDF) Creation and Formatting Content Submission for e.g. videos, slideshows PowerPoint Presentation Creation and Formatting Internet Research Content Writing Social Media Marketing (Pipeline) You can see them here: http://tamarawilliamsvaservices.com/virtual-assistant-services/. I even joined the IVAA too. I have been reading so much online that I haven't gotten around to reading their materials but plan to do that soon. You can see my profile here: https://ivaa.org/profile-display/?id=3859 Other VAs suggested that I could focus on Coaches, Speakers and Authors as my target audience. So they are my target right now. I haven't gotten any clients as yet because I don't have the marketing and sales skills but I am hoping to soon. It's like being in a catch-22 because I need clients so that I can have money to spend on training myself. However, I plan to search the forums for some tips about finding free job boards or internships or joining a VA team or so on.
