  2. I have to look fo a job aside of my virtual assistance business til I can find more clients. Should I include my experience in my resume or is that a whole new resume of its own? Jason
  3. Desperately looking for work to survive or !!!! Hello, I am new here. I do not have a website yet and my specialty has always been customer service and not sure where to span out my skills. I had a god send job up until November of last . Working for the Red Cross Stores from home, sadly we all were laid off due to the company taking business in house, and I have been struggling ever since. Not only was my whole year up until being laid off too boot, right before Christmas, as you will read the tale spinning of the saddest year of my life. Getting laid off was the hit that has taken any of our security to survive away, almost so to losing our home just last month. This job was so perfect for my family and however I have 8 children, all are grown with grand-kids back home, except for the last of my liter the twins, a boy and a girl who are soon to be 10 yrs. old. that are with me. The many medical issues we face has made working full time almost impossible outside of the home. My daughter started having seizures around the age of 2 and still after all the tests and doctor visits we still do not have answers. She also walks on her tip toes and with surgery (which was not guaranteed) put her in a wheelchair for over 6 weeks and both legs in casts. Unfortunate the surgery did not work so we have to see what options are next. Upon needing a sleep study for delayed breathing, when no activity is involved. My son has Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and that flares up in his legs at anytime which leaves him unable to walk for days and as of recently for the first time affected his arm leaving him unable to write for school. I have had healthy kids always your basic cough, fever, stuff like that but the twins are sick little ones.:( So at home is ideal not only for their illnesses but I am the only one they have to care for them. I am 6 hours away from home and have been in VA Beach for almost 4 years, working from home just shy over 3 of those years, I still have almost no friends and no support system to say the least. We love it here so much and want to stay, but I am sure struggling to do so. I have been dedicated to finding work however missing the mark to be hired, maybe they see right threw the thickness of pain thinking I don't have what it takes, maybe it's me who has lost the confidence in myself. I know I am lost and need work IMMEDIATELY. VA has wonderful resources for a lot of help in times as these, however after circling calls for weeks, just to hear resources are depleted has left me wondering is there hope for employment? I just can't say. My friends in Memphis has been buying food for us which is great but is limited to help in other ways and without that I would be visiting the food banks. Last year was the hardest year of my life. My mother passed unexpectedly less then 12 hrs before her first grandchild's wedding (my oldest daughter), I lost another family member the day after, both funerals scheduled the same day, one in my hometown and another 4 hrs away from home so I could only attend my mothers. I had yet another loss of family in which I considered growing up as my 2nd mom, my mom's best friend she had been sick for over 2 yrs, she passed 1 month and a day after my mom. It will be 1 yr this month...and as well for the month are celebrations, my baby brothers birthday, my birthday, my older brothers birthday, mothers day, my daughters 1 yr anniversary, with all that there is not much I feel to celebrate. Sadly there was more to lose... My family dog who remained at home when I moved for affordability reasons and then sadly my mom's dog soon after. My dad is a Vet needed major surgery and thankful he made it through:) When I was home in July for the surgery, I had no clue I would end up bringing a puppy home! My sister was adopting a puppy at that time and I thought maybe it would help us stay active, get us outside and give us a way to show love> before I meant our little Sandy Girl (chihuahua), is when I found out she was born on the day of my mom's passing... I knew it was meant to be right then and there she would be ours to love! She helps me keep strength I need on so many days and she is loved to the depths of my heart, our hearts! We have lost so much but I keep staying positive saying this is "my year for great things". So far not too many great things it seems, my unemployment is done this month and the twins father has been emotional disconnected for some time with the children...there are no other resources available or support to lean . I moved to get healthy and be a better mom, it felt like it was just that for a bit of time, now my head spins wondering if at all soon some luck will change and I find my way back on the tracks of not worrying all could be gone. I need work or we stand to lose everything we built these last years! I found this site because I have been searching high and low to find resources to accommodate what I need to provide for my family. I pray this is the best site I could have found! Can someone give me ideas of what I should put in the tag section? Thanks for reading:)
  4. My sister in law wants to work as a va really bad. Shes great at clerical work, spreadsheets, etc. Does anyone have any idea where she can advertise herself or does anyone have work she can do? Jason
  5. I have worked for a few clients now and I am now looking for new clients aside from the one I have now. I have a letter drafted up asking for referrals. Should I email this letter to my former clients or snail mail it to them? Jason
  6. Hello from Wa state. I am just stating Virtual Assisting. I love it. I haven't had many clients and am kinda discouraged but I'm still working at it.
  7. Hi.... I'm actually new at being a virtual assistant. In fact I'm so new that I'm just getting signed up on sites online in order to find my first VA position. It's always difficult for me to talk about myself, so I'll do my best. I have customer service and clerical skills. I'm currently a full time stay at home mom, but now that the youngest is 7 months (and the hubby is tired of working 2 jobs lol) I need to try and find a part time position to help bring in income. I figured this would be something I could try to do. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I think that's it for now.
  8. Hello everyone! My name is Deb Barnes and I am the owner and operations manager of VirtualWorksVA or Virtual Works Virtual Assistant. Virtual Works Virtual Assistant is a virtual assistant service that offers creative and cost-effective solutions to meet a client’s day-to-day support needs. We help our clients by providing administrative and technical support so they can concentrate on growing their businesses and meeting their objectives. One of my specialties is design. I simply love designing visual presentations that speak volumes. Being a virtual assistant gives me the flexibility and creativity to help contribute to the company’s total image. My story might sound a bit familiar but I would like to share it with the group. My career path and choices have always led me to provide support to others. For example, I have provided administrative and technical support to many top government officials in and around the Washington Metropolitan area. At the same time, I found myself providing support off of the job, to the church, small business owners in my neighborhood and individuals needing something administratively done. Therefore, I realized early on that I really enjoyed what I did and that I was pretty darn good at doing it. It was important to me to see people meet their goals and objectives. It also gave me a sense of fulfillment. I actually liked being a part of a greater success story whether asked to perform upfront, as a middle man or behind the scenes. After 20 years, I returned to the classroom and obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology and Visual Communication, I also went back to get a Master's Degree in Business Administration. True story: At 2:00 am while I was writing a term paper, I decided to it was time to start the business. Scared and having no clue, I did so much research and viewed so many other VA sites. Hesitated, procrastinated and anything else that said "ARE YOU REALLY SURE!" I knew that it was what I wanted to do and that I would be able to craft a business and find my niche. So, here I am... On the personal side: I was born in raised in the Washington Metropolitan area. I take great pride being raised in this area because of the history and how the world views Washington, DC. It comes with great responsibility. Life has not always been easy, after 17 years of marriage, my husband, who was 36 years old passed. Therefore, I am a widow of 12 years, Raising three children, I realized how precious each day of life was. I knew that I could not fear always but move forward and set an example for my kids and now three grandchildren that would last long after I was gone. I have learned not just to exist but to LIVE. I love ZUMBA and taking long walks at least three to four miles per walk. I simply love watching nature, people and getting new ideas from the paths I take. I found this forum on Google and I could use the support and tips that many of you are sharing. I know that I have a long way to go but I would like to be a good member that the VA industry can be proud to call one of their own. Oh! Please just call me Deb!
