  1. A few years back while I was doing my part-time subcontracting business a mentor told me it a round about way it wasn't successful. I felt like she was looking at numbers only. I admit, I could probably be doing more but guess what? Since I've been providing these services part-time I'm able to take my family this winter to Disney world. I'm pretty pumped. It's neat to show the kids small goals can be accomplished you don't have to eat the elephant first. Take things slow. For those of you multi-VAs providing the work, good for you. Look what a difference you're making. I need more content for my blog so is this a topic I should journal? Is that boring and OK to have a personal side of things on my blog?
  2. Hello...I've been a member here for several years, but, for various reasons, never started a VA service. I now have a vertigo/disequilibrium problem which makes it impossible for me to drive to a job outside the home, and many times I'd be unable to function at an outside job even if I had one. I do a couple of online income- earning things, but these things aren't enough to support myself, or to bring in even a part-time income, so I'm reconsidering VA work. I have lots of skills that I could offer as a VA, from bookkeeping to general administrative; from writing and proofreading to web design and graphics... It's not the skills that make me hesitate; it's that my heart isn't 100% in it. It might be because it's overwhelming just trying to figure out how to build a business of this type, because I'm sure I could do the work, and have enjoyed the work in the past. My problem is that I'm an artist, not a business person. I don't feel confident that I could develop a successful VA business. The other thing is, my sister keeps telling me that I don't have to be anything like a VA. According to her, I just have to put my name out there, stating that "I need to work", and just try to get anything that might come along. I don't agree with that approach. Why appear desperate? That isn't very professional, and I don't see how it would really develop into a business. At this point, I can't afford to take a VA class or course, or buy a lot of materials, but I do have web hosting, a domain name, and a business name chosen. I'm starting to work on my website, but haven't gotten very far yet due to overwhelm. I'm also taking advantage of these forums, and any free material that's available to help me learn what to do. I've just created a new website for my church, and am the one responsible for maintaining and updating it. I do it on a volunteer basis, but maybe I could ask for a short testimonial and use the church as my first "client"...? Most of the people on these forums seem to be very excited about being a VA, so I'm wondering if you think it's possible for me to be successful at it, even though I feel very unsure about it right now, and am not 100% passionate about it? Or should one not even attempt it if one's heart isn't completely in it?
