Hello there!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm Mel and I'm from the SF Bay Area. I've worked in admin positions for years in education, non-profit and government. After getting a chance to work from home remotely in my last position, I knew that was the way I wanted to work from now on. I could get way more done at home than I ever could in the office. I had originally searched for jobs with the option to telecommute but found nothing I was interested in. Somehow I ran across the title "Virtual Assistant" and I was intrigued. I had never heard of that before. Everything (almost) I had been doing at my previous positions, I could do at home. I couldn't believe it. I didn't think it was something I could turn into a successful career. Having the option to work at home (or anywhere with internet connection), choosing what I wanted to do, and who I wanted to work with sounded like a dream come true!

 

So here I am a few weeks later after researching and lurking. I am finally going to start a career as a VA. I'm ecstatic! I'm really glad that there's so much help and information on the internet because I wouldn't even know where to begin.

 

I look forward to meeting everyone and being part of this community. Don't be a stranger. I'm friendly! :)

 

Mel

Hi Mel and welcome and glad you stepped out of lurk mode and joined us! Love hearing your excitement and curiosity hearing about our industry for the first time. I remember feeling the same way almost 15 years ago when I heard the term VA. ;) It's been an exciting career that I've loved over the years.

 

Enjoy the info here and look forward to getting to know you more through your participation here :)
