Hi ladies and gents! I am new here, and just kind of fishing around. I just started freelancing as a VA after helping a friend with her own business.. and decided to go off on my own. I’m still in search of my first client, and I’m trying to be positive because it has been about two month. I am glad to be here hopefully I can gain some knowledge. -Gabrielle
Hi there, My name is Angela Tyler, I'm a young mom from Fremont, MI. I currently work full time as a life insurance agent for one of the top national insurance companies, and before that I was a hair stylist. I have a great job, but as a young mom I find that being at the office 40 hours a week is taking much precious time away from my family. While browsing online one day I saw a post about becoming a VA and, after reading about the type of work you could do, I was very intrigued. It's become my mission to find my niche and start my own VA business right out of my home. My current website is called Pure Grace http://puregracejewelry.wixsite.com/puregracejewelry. Originally it was meant to be another platform for my small handmade jewelry business, but I decided to expand it into my own blog. Of course, when you're working 40 hours a week it's difficult to find the time to manage a blog. That is why I am hopeful that once I start my VA work and am able to quit my full time job I will be able to maintain my own blog. I plan on creating a WordPress website and learn more about that, as I understand most bloggers primarily use that. As far as years of experience, I am brand new to the VA field. However, I have been working in customer service for almost ten years. I was a hair stylist for eight years so I am great at listening to what people want and turning abstract ideas into something beautiful. For the last year I've worked in an office as a life insurance agent, so I have administrative and secretarial skills as well. Being my own small business owner I am also very comfortable with social media and marketing in that manner. My goal is to VA for a Christian Blog - it's a topic I enjoy writing about, and I am very passionate about that field of ministry. I would love to help with social media management, editing blog posts and even doing some guest posting. On a more personal note, I am from a small town called Fremont, Michigan. We're a farming community with about 4,000 people. This little town is one where everyone knows everyone, we still hold the doors for each other, and there's corn fields lining the roads and a church on every corner. It's home. My husband and I just celebrated our three year wedding anniversary on August 24th. We have two beautiful children, my son will be two in September and my daughter is five - she just got on the school bus for her very first day at kindergarten! This exactly is the reason why I want this venture to be a success. I want to be here when my daughter gets on the bus, and when she gets off. I want to be here when my son is potty training. I want to be home for dinner, and have the availability to meet with bible studies. My home is my mission field, and I don't want to spend any more time away! My hobbies and interests...I love writing. I have been writing since I was a young girl, and have never stopped. Currently I am working on my first novel, which is a fantasy genre novel. I also love riding horses,although I don't have much time to get in the saddle lately (which will hopefully change soon!) Jewelry design has also become a hobby of mine. It started off with beading necklaces and bracelets, but it turned into designing rosaries and prayer beads. Since transitioning into Christian based jewelry my little business has doubled it's sales from the previous year, so I know I am on the right track. I love my little handmade ministry! I heard about VA Networking from Google. Over the past couple weeks I have been reading article after article, learning everything I can before diving in. I searched for "virtual assistant" and VA Networking was one of the first things that popped up. So far I love reading everyone's thoughts in the forums, and I can tell this website will be an asset to my growth as a VA. I'm very excited for what the future holds, and I cannot wait to dive in! Be blessed, Angela
