Hi All


My name is Annabella and I live in Johannesburg, South Africa. I will be taking the very daunting leap of faith to start

my VA business in the next couple of months. I am still employed full time by a legal firm. I want to work from home to spend more time with my family.


I have registered my company under the name of "Buzzing with Bella Virtual Assistant Services". I have a Face Book, Twitter and LinkedIn account. My Twitter handle is @buzzingbella, FB is buzzing bella and LinkedIn is Annabella February - please feel free to send me invites on all three platforms.


I am yet to complete my web page and blog page - writing is a new skill to me that I am sure I will never completely master! Once up and running, my web page will be buzzingbella.co.za and my blog will be buzzingwithbella.co.za.


I am going to specialise in PowerPoint and Prezi presentations and I am "over qualified" to type lengthy transcriptions of all kinds and any other typing that a client may require. This is all in addition to general secretarial work that is performed by most PAs on a daily basis.


Looking forward to reading all the posts and most definitely asking questions and making comments!


Have an awesome day!

Welcome, Annabella! You're in the right place to learn about virtual assistance. I think you'll find not only information in the forums but a friendly atmosphere and exposure to other VAs. The VA Virtuosos Seminar is in a couple of weeks; it's packed with information. Hope you can make some of the webinars. It takes a lot to get started, and it sounds like you're off and running. Best of luck!


I know a couple in Springs. How nice to know you're in Johannesburg. :)

Hi Annabella and welcome. Glad you found us as its a really good resource here for Virtual Assistants no matter what level they are at be it start up or in business for years.


You sound like you are almost ready to start up shop and congrats on that. Pat yourself on the back as it takes strong will and desire to get a VA business started :)


I think you'll do well niched in PPT and Prezi. I love prezi and have not personally used it but loved our speakers presentations who did use it last VAVS.


Anyhow, enjoy the boards and I look forward to networking with you :)
