Hello, I just joined this amazing network, and I wanted to introduce myself. I am a visual and written content creator, specializing in multi-lingual and multi-national content creation, branding, design services, localization and translation services. I also offer consultation services for those interested to moving abroad. The reason for this specialty service is that I have gained in-depth expertise due to having lived in 4 different countries on 2 continents, and have familiarized myself in these countries mentality, culture, lifestyle and - especially - bureaucracy and requirements for obtaining work and stay permits. As a native from Belgium (which is also my current country of residence) I am also fluent in 3 languages (English, German and French) and have gained extensive experience in translation work during my corporate career years, and it is another service that I offer. Throughout my corporate career I have been a project manager in the automotive industry. A very tough and soul-sucking job, but planning and organizing has always been one of my passions. As the story goes, I've been offered a very good deal by my last company which I took, with the plan of setting up on my own, as had been a dream of mine for a couple of years now. After all, due to my old age (I'm in my 50's) and being rather expensive in the traditional job market, it would have been hard to find a new corporate job anyway, so I am very glad that this opportunity has come my way. Now all I have to do is to find clients for my VA business and start to make money - sounds easy, doesn't it. My website, that lists all the services I have to offer and also showcases my work in my portfolio is www.juliette-emonts.com Greetings, Juliette
Hi Everyone!!! My name is Michele and i just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I am a mom of 3. My youngest is on the Autism Spectrum. And as she got older, not to mention her father and myself divorced after 14 years of marriage that should've ended at least 10 years ago Lol. Her needs began to require more and more of my time to the point I finally had to leave the workforce. My background was in marketing and sales coordinator which required internet research on things like the company, their niche, the best way to reach their audience/customers and most of all..walking then into the social media age. And I was good at it! I don't have any issue in saying that. So after a couple of years of the "What am I going to do and how can I do it from home" phase I discovered Virtual Assistants and Social Media Management. In those years I did try many different things. The 1 thing I still do and am proud of is my website. www.boholifestylefashions.com A short description is basically a surge that offers Alternative services for Weddings, Ceremonies and Anything out of the norm. And my website "the Bohemian Closet" where you can find and purchase jewelry handmade by me and a guide to the Bohemian Lifestyle and all that it entails. This is something I love and am very passionate about. But it wasn't and still isn't enough to supplement the income list when I had to retire. So we live on social security benefits. Then I discovered I could use my website, which averages 200 views per week to become a Virtual Assistant and still be able to continue thevoriginal purpose of my website when I launched 2 years ago! I currently advertise 6 different companies on there but the traffic and the sales are not matching up. If even half the visits I recieve weekly resulted in either sales of my items or for the companies i advertise for i would be doing pretty darn good. But that's not the case. Then I found you...vanetworking.com!!! Even tho I just joined over already gotten so many tools to help turn my traffic into sales! I'm very excited for the future for the first time in a long time a d I want to say thank you! And thank you to the people I've encountered on here so far. Everyone is so generous with help and advice. That's rare! Well that's me and my story. Thank you for reading.
