  1. Hello Everyone! I am a Virtual Assistant based in South Africa. My journey into this awesome "Virtual World" happen with the birth of my son and the company I was working for at the time didn't want to get a temp so I set myself up at home to do everything I did in the office and that is when the light bulb moment happened Set up an office at home resigned and have never looked back, nothing better than being your own boss, determining your income and getting to be there for your kids everyday. Excited about being a part of this community and look forward to getting to know fellow VA's.
  2. Hello Everyone! I currently work as a subcontractor VA- I pretty much do an Admin role- scheduling, calendar/email management, Data entry, payroll, invoicing, human resource, etc. I am also a part time home based travel agent- I am affiliated with an agency, and i handle all areas of travel (land vacations, cruises, flights, excursions, etc) I would love to get looking at growing a VA business (instead of just being a contractor) and I totally love being a travel agent and wondered would it be a good idea to combine the two together and build a VA travel agent? Is there a niche for something like this? If there is is there somewhere that would be a great place to start? I know this group is full of knowledgeable people and thought I'd reach out to see if this is something that is doable. Thanks so much for your time and enjoy your day/evening Camele

I am currently attending college for a degree in entrepreneurship, economics, and business. I am not sure where to start or how to start. I know I enjoy helping and building up people. If you have any advice please feel free to comment. I am open to any ideas or suggestions. I love God, coupon shopping, spending time with friends and family.
  4. 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
  5. Hey everyone! I am new to the VA world. I would like to start an VA business. I am not sure where to start. I want to start it off on the right foot.

  6. My name is Stephanie Finkbeiner. I've been a VA for a while but I'm new to your forum. My VA business is www.BalancedBusinessService.com, I'm working on narrowing my focus toward Life, Wellness, and Business Coaches for Women.

I'm looking forward to participating and learning within your forum. Thank you!
  7. Hi eveyrone! I'm Pat Hauldren. I'm farily new to VA work and this site. I started helping out a friend, who referred me to her friend, who referred me... and on it goes. Now I want to scale back just a tad (well, after I fix the hot water pipe, the ac, my car....) to concentrate on my own writing. I'm enjoying both, and the $ help. I'm in Texas, USA, but often get clients from Canada. Dunno how that happened, but it's nice and the further the better, right? I've published a few anthologies of short stories and poetry, as well as short stories, poems, articles, blogs, and working on novels. Thanks for letting me learn from this great resource! Pat
  8. Hello All, I am new to the forum, i have been working virtually for the last 8 years. Started from telemarketing, after becoming a giant seller I started my own local business to utilize my selling skills. Along my own business I started as a VA with a third party and served many clients as a Customer Service Rep for their customers.

I am a Mechanical Engineer as per my academic career, my early schooling was in London. Later I moved to Pakistan and continued studies here. Now I am planning to move on, I am looking to setup my own Virtual Assistant business. Looking forward to your suggestions. Open for proposals, ideas and partnering. Cheers,

    Hi there! I can't say that I have a niche per say. More of a set of services that can apply to anyone (although I pick and choose who I want to work with). I stick with administrative type duties. It is what I enjoy, and not picking a niche allows me to work with all sorts of different people, which I enjoy. You can find me on here or my website www.thenecessarysecretary.com

  14. Hi All, Among the tasks of a Virtual Assistant is 'online marketing' which basically incorporates the principles of proper SMM. SEO may be one of my areas of improvement, but I'd have to be proactive and research on new tactics to implement - otherwise it's my head on the chopping board! Kidding aside, I came across this article recently and I am apalled by the way Facebook has "tweaked" its functionality - for the nth time! Here is the link: http://www.businessinsider.com/facebook-screws-social-media-marketers-2013-12 So, this means that meaningful content will no longer reach your target audience like it used to - which is basically unfair to those who have spent years and years engaging thier audience. Now, everyone has to pay - literally - a certain fee for people to view their content. Care to share your thoughts? Is there any way we could maximize the use of this social networking giant given its new restrictions?

  16. Hey there! Welcome to VAnetworking.com --> The Social Network for Virtual Assistants. I am so excited that you have decided to join the friendliest social network on earth for Virtual Assistants. Let me give you a quick intro of who I am. I am Juli and I have not been in the Virtual Industry that long, (1 year) but by being your moderator, I can relate to some of your challenges that you might possibly face that I might have gone through. I was unemployed looking for way to pay off my student loan debt and how to make money at the same time. I saw an AD on my local TV explaining how to make money online, that educated me a bit on how to make money online but through one of those freelancing sites. I was still not satisfied with only working from that platform so I went on Google and found ways how I could make money online, and this is how I found the forum and joined. Fast forward a year later I have a business in place and I am about to launch my website. So I have gone through the path that you now are on. Enough about me and more about you! One way to get to know you better on the forum is through your first introduction to us. I will outline some tips on how to get you started on the forum.

    Certification

    Hi, I want to know if you're a VA for a long time and want to level up on your field. Would a certification be necessary like IAAP or ASAP? I was looking into these options the other day because I have admin experience. I am not so sure if that kind of certifications would help me. I am not looking into an office position. It's like an added credentials for me. Now I am based in the US not in the Philippines. I would be glad to accept any suggestions, concerns, and questions. Thanks

    3 VA Misconceptions

    Now that you have found ways on how to start your Virtual Assistant business. You are armed and eager to work with your ideal clients. But you keep wondering, Are you still operating as an employee? should a virtual assistant provide a Resume? can you be a Jack/Jill of all trades? Yes, these questions might still be lurking at the back of your head or maybe the forefront! So here I will share my opinion as well as what I have since learned on my journey so we can clear up these 3 common misconceptions in the virtual assistant industry. Are you still operating as an employee? You are so excited now that you did your first consultation, but that one question came up on the call if you should ask your prospective client to take care of your taxes and insurances. No! Do not do that, because you are only being contracted to do the task or service that you are offering and being paid for. So to tell it as it is, you are a home-based, independent contractor, that normally sets your prices, your hours to complete a specific task, as well as manage your own insurance, as well as taxes. So no way are you an employee! Should a virtual assistant provide a Resume? I have seen this posted so many times on social media. I also see prospective clients posting this on social media when they are hiring a VA, that the VA who is applying for a position should also provide a resume'. Now you can imagine the confusion this will cause when this subject matter is not addressed correctly. Remember that because you are an independent contractor that the best sorts of reference that you will and should always provide are your testimonials from past clients or references. Can you be a Jack/Jill of all trades? Yes, it's always nice to try and go the extra mile to accommodate your clients when they have come to you about doing a particular task or service. But, you can very well become overwhelming to learn a new task or burn out trying to please your client when you know very well this type of task is not your cup of tea. That is why its always good to outsource or recommend your client to someone else who may be a good fit at this time. Nothing in itself is wrong with attempting to try the task, but would you rather do this when you can be very well helping a client who needs your expertise at this time? I would love to hear other misconceptions that you have experienced or heard of before. Until then, Juli.
