Hi everyone,


My name is Sherlonda. I am a Personal Assistant and have seven years of experience. I am interested in becoming a VA for two reasons. (1) I want a flexible work schedule so I can spend more time with my 2-year-old. The combination of a long commute and work hours, make me feel like the evenings are going by so fast without spending any real quality time with her. So a change is needed. And (2) with so much uncertainty in Corporate America, I eventually want to become my own boss.


I don't expect starting a VA business to be easy and the process will probably make me more imbalance until I get it up and going. But I believe it will be worth it. So I look forward to your input and learning from all of you. And hope in time, I can return the favor. Thank you.

Hi Sherlonda and I totally can relate. I decided to be a VA 15 years ago for this very reason. To be able to be there for my kids at home instead of working away from there.

Best decision I ever made!

It's another reason I started this #VAforum back then in 2003 so that we could share and learn from one another.

Hope you enjoy it here and to a prosperous 2016 for you with your new business :)
