Hi everyone

My name is Sami and I have just signed up to the VA network today as I am taking the plunge into starting up my new business as a VA. I am in the very early days of this at the moment and I am finding it all a bit daunting with knowing where to start etc. 

I have been travelling for the past 2 years and I am now back at home in England with no money doing temp work in offices here and there to keep me going. I came across the words Virtual Assistant only last week and I cant believe I have never heard of it before or even thought of it being an option for me. I dont have masses of experience like alot of you do but I have worked in a variety of office and administration roles over the past 4 years so I know I can do the work but im just feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment as I am trying to figure out how to actually go about getting all of this set up with limited money.

Would anyone be able to suggest any free courses I could take that could be beneficial? I think i may have found some i can take but there may be some I am missing?

I also obviously wont have a client base at all to begin with so I dont know how to go about getting my first client? I read about volunteering a few hours of my time to get me started but I need to look into where i would go about that and also just so much i need to learn about setting up a linked in profile and getting people to connect with me on there.

I feel very excited about all of this but my mind is so full with thoughts of all these things i need to do its hard to know what to prioritse. 

Anyways....I will leave my rambling there and try and get on with figuring it all out.

Welcome Sami! So exciting when you finally learn about virtual assistance and realize, hey I can do that! ;)

I'm not familiar with much free training to become a VA but do know we have some in our VA Member Lounge to get you started. Plus this network is a great resource to ask your questions along the way or search the archives as it may have already been answered.

Wishing you the best on your new venture :)
