I am just starting off and it is amazing how much information is out there. My main issue is how to compile this information into something very useful for me to startup. I am really excited for this new opportunity and I am curious to know how you all started up. Any advice for a newbie would be great also

Welcome! When I started as a VA, I started by bookmarking every thread/webpage that looked useful to me, then got a 3-ring binder and made sections for 'company setup', 'marketing', 'bookkeeping', etc. then went back through my bookmarks, copied/pasted the useful parts into MS Word, printed these, and filed them in my binder. I STILL add new stuff to my binder on a regular basis and it's been 7 years! :) (I print them on the fly, now, though, 'cuz my binder has been organized for years.)

Welcome!

 

Lily has great advice, this is how I started as well with each new business venture I have ever started.

 

For me, it all starts with research, bookmarking and printing things out into binders and organizing from there, then digging and getting my feet wet.

 

Let us know how we can support you.

I started with my home computer, a printer/fax/scanner/copier, and a phone!

 

I have been adding software as needed for my clients, and am always excited when I get a new project! Best wishes on your adventure.
