Hey there! Welcome to VAnetworking.com --> The Social Network for Virtual Assistants.

I am so excited that you have decided to join the friendliest social network on earth for Virtual Assistants. Let me give you a quick intro of who I am. I am Juli and I have not been in the Virtual Industry that long, (3 years) but by being your moderator, I can relate to some of your challenges that you might possibly face that I might have gone through.

 

I was unemployed looking for way to pay off my student loan debt and how to make money at the same time.

I saw an AD on my local TV explaining how to make money online, that educated me a bit on how to make money online but through one of those freelancing sites. I was still not satisfied with only working from that platform so I went on Google and found ways how I could make money online, and this is how I found the forum and joined.

 

Fast forward a year later I have a business in place and I have launched my website. So I have gone through the path that you now are on. Enough about me and more about you!

 

One way to get to know you better on the forum is through your first introduction to us. I will outline some tips on how to get you started on the forum.

 

First you can do a quick introduction about yourself and this can be done by clicking here http://www.vanetwork...al-Busi-f4.html

 

If you are like me and don’t like to talk much about yourself here is a breakdown to use as a guide to ease those introductions jitters:

 

  • Your Name:
  • Your Website URL (if applicable):
  • Years in Business:
  • Description of your Business, including any specialties:
  • On a more personal note:
  • What City/Town/State/Country are you from?:
  • Are you married? How long?:
  • Any kids and how old?
  • Hobbies & Interests:

How did you hear about us? We love to know how you heard about us so please let us know! i.e. Google search (what keywords did you search?), article in magazine (name of mag?), word of mouth (who?), etc.

Please feel free to browse around and get to know others. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to private message me or any of the other moderators here or contact us at our
help desk

 

Until then, can't wait to see your growth here and your accomplishments. Best wishes.

I am just starting my journey to start my Virtual Assistant Business. I am thinking of doing proofreading and editing. Right now I am in college perusing a Virtual Office Professional Certificate of Achievement. I have two years experience as an Administrative Assistant Intern. I need your advice on what step should I take next. It seems that people on Guru are wanting degrees and three to five years virtual assistant experience. What's your advice?

Welcome to VAnetworking! I don't have any experience in the proofreading and editing industry to answer your question.

You may even want to post this again as it's own standalone thread so more people see it.
