Hi Everyone!!!

My name is Michele and i just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I am a mom of 3. My youngest is on the Autism Spectrum. And as she got older, not to mention her father and myself divorced after 14 years of marriage that should've ended at least 10 years ago Lol. Her needs began to require more and more of my time to the point I finally had to leave the workforce. My background was in marketing and sales coordinator which required internet research on things like the company, their niche, the best way to reach their audience/customers and most of all..walking then into the social media age. And I was good at it! I don't have any issue in saying that.  So after a couple of years of the "What am I going to do and how can I do it from home" phase I discovered Virtual Assistants and Social Media Management. In those years I did try many different things. The 1 thing I still do and am proud of is my website.

www.boholifestylefashions.com

A short description is basically a surge that offers Alternative services for Weddings, Ceremonies and Anything out of the norm. And my website "the Bohemian Closet" where you can find and purchase jewelry handmade by me and a guide to the Bohemian Lifestyle and all that it entails. 

This is something I love and am very passionate about. But it wasn't and still isn't enough to supplement the income list when I had to retire. So we live on social security benefits.

Then I discovered I could use my website, which averages 200 views per week to become a Virtual Assistant and still be able to continue thevoriginal purpose of my website when I launched 2 years ago!  I currently advertise 6 different companies on there but the traffic and the sales are not matching up. 

If even half the visits I recieve weekly resulted in either sales of my items or for the companies i advertise for i would be doing pretty darn good. But that's not the case.

Then I found you...vanetworking.com!!! 

Even tho I just joined over already gotten so many tools to help turn my traffic into sales! I'm very excited for the future for the first time in a long time a d I want to say thank you! And thank you to the people I've encountered on here so far. Everyone is so generous with help and advice. That's rare! 

Well that's me and my story.  Thank you for reading.

Hello Michele,

Welcome to the forum! Like you I want to have other business, mine will be in the fashion industry. Who knows maybe we can do a collaboration with your jewellery with my styling services. Sorry for the off topic. All the best on your VA business.

Hi Michelle,

Love your Bohemia style fashions websites. Maybe that is your niche? You work only for Bohemia style companies and get known in that industry?

Or you could niche yourself in helping others promote their jeweler websites and maintain/market them.

Just a few ideas to get you thinking about your niche. You niche usually finds you over time. All of a sudden you'll be loving what you are doing and realize, hey that is my niche (photography, writing descriptions of products, setting up shopping card, dealing with emails, customer service. etc.)
