Hi! My name is Ros and I am super excited to be here and saying hello! Over the last few weeks I've been busy building my first ever website www.rlsva.com in a bid to pursue a part-time (at first) business called RLSVirtualAssist specialising in Landlord Services. I hope to leave my day job eventually and work for myself but since I have a great work-from-home CS job already, I am in a fortunate position to be able to devote a lot of my free time to researching the VA industry and working towards my goals.

I live on the Isle of Wight, UK - recently moved back from living in Norwich, Norfolk where I let a little flat out.

Not married, no kids - living at home with parents and my beautiful cat Bungle, so I can save enough for a deposit to get a little flat here of my own in a year or so.

I love travel and holidays (working holidays as a VA would be a dream come true!)

I've been researching the field for most of the year now and feel I'm now well overdue to start mingling with you all and see how the job is really done. My inspiration among many is a VA called Jo Munro, owner of www.thevahandbook.com. Through reading, I have found the VA Community is simply something I just have to be part of.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read, please visit my website, like my Facebook page... (website's not altogether finished but I'm working hard on that. Most the links do what they say they do, one or two don't ;)). I do welcome your comments and suggestions though, and hopefully speak to you soon!

Ros. x

Hi Ros and welcome to vanetworking!

 

This is a friendly and very informative place to be. I'm a new virtual assistant, also, and I live in Virginia, US. And I'm working on my website, although it's not nearly as nice as yours. Well done! It has a nice, coastal feel to it, and I really like the layout and graphics you've chosen. (There was one thing I wasn't sure about. I was hesitant to click on the video on the home page, because it just didn't seem like what I would expect on a VA site: tattooed hands, title not about office work. I'm sorry if I'm misinterpreting. I don't want to discourage you at all. Maybe it's just me.) I definitely like the little lizard/gecko part of your logo. Really cute! It sounds like you're getting off to a really good start.

 

Thanks for hanging out here!

 

Stay well,

Oh Irene, you're absolutely right!!! :D That DaftPunk video definitely won't be staying, it is there purely as it was the first song that came into my head as I was learning how to embed a video but THANK YOU so much for your lovely comments and feedback, I am loving this forum so far, I feel like I've found a new home with extended family!

Lovely to meet you Irene, good luck with your journey, look forward to checking out your website too! If you need any handy tips, this fella is amazing, check out his YouTube videos, Tyler Moore :) x

Thank you Tawnya, and thank you Lily - I've had the most irritating cold for the last few days and it's clean wiped me off my feet but the first place I thought I'd come and see (after spending a day getting my website more up-together) is here... Wanted to say hi and ask a couple of questions to the forum too!

 

Thanks again for welcoming me, hope you're all positively marvellous!! xx
