VA'ing when retired

Recommended Posts

I wondered if anyone out there started a VA business after retirement?  I have many years of administrative experience, retired recently, and am now considering becoming a VA for extra income.  I'd appreciate any advice or suggestions.

I talk to many via phone calls who are starting out after retiring from the corporate world. They do this for many reasons from just sheer boredom at home to wanting some extra lipstick money during the retiring years. You'd be amazed how many people are over 55 in this business. Myself I'm 54 and have no plans of retiring for at least another 15-20 years God willing as I love my job! ;)

If you'd like a free 15 minute consult with me about virtual assistance, please book a call at my website.

Also, make sure you login to your member lounge area and what the video on becoming a VA.

I'm a retired Quality Assurance Manager who started editing part time (I'm a writer as well) and it just grew into editing, copy editing, proofreading and virtual assistance.

I'm only wanting to do this part time, as I am writing novels. But jobs and projects and clients have a way of blossoming! So I network with other freelancers to spread out the work I don't want or can't do. I feel like I have friends all over the world now. :)

Good luck in your business!
