Free eBook! Exploring Virtual Assistance as a Career

In this quick read, I answer the questions you want to know:

  • What is a virtual assistant and what do they do?
  • How much money can I make?
  • Where can I get training?

Want to be a Virtual Assistant? Let me show you how to use skills you already have to build a life you love AND be able to work at home!

Here are just a few of the reasons why I LOVE being a Virtual Assistant and why it's a great career choice for ANYONE who wants to work at home: 

  • Great Earning Potential – you are the business owner so you can set your rates however you want and you can work as much or as little as You want. 
  • Flexibility – work your business around your children’s school or day care schedule, work from Starbucks, take a 2-hour lunch – it’s Your business, run it the way that fits your schedule and lifestyle. 
  • Portability – If you happen to move, whether it's due to the military or a spouse's job opportunity, Your business goes with you.  

You've seen the commercials and have been warned of the work-at-home scams, and now are convinced that you can't possibly work at home and earn a good, honest living. But I'm here to tell you that I not only have built a career around a flexible schedule, but some earn more working part time than they did working full-time. What is this wonder job? It's called a "Virtual Assistant" and it has proved to be the perfect career for those who want to work at home.  

What can Virtual Assistants do?

Back when I launched my VA business in 2005, there were a few industries that used virtual assistants, such as real estate professionals, consultants, and a few coaches. Virtual assistants did a lot of "generalist" tasks such as calendaring/scheduling, word processing, PowerPoint presentations, proofreading/editing - many of the types of tasks that you learned on the job working in an office. And then there were those who had specialties, such as graphic design, bookkeeping, and website maintenance. Things have changed over the past few years! Due to the popularity of outsourcing and advances in technology, there are dozens of virtual assistant specialties working in a variety of niches - many of them relatively new. Not only will you find generalists, real estate VAs, marketing support (tech VAs), but there is a plethora of social media managers, podcast administrators, even video VAs cropping up! You can turn your narrow skillset into a full-time job or work within an industry doing a variety of tasks. If this sounds like something you want to do, then I invite you to download my free report, "Exploring Virtual Assistance as a Career." In this report, I explain the various types of virtual assistant services, how much money you can expect to charge, and a sampling of different training programs available. I'll also share additional "insider information" from someone who has been doing this for over five years. Enter your name and email below and I'll send you this free information immediately (even if it's 2 am on a Sunday morning!)
