Virtual Assistance 101: Introduction

I usually keep my Virtual AsAdmin Assistantsistant business and personal “stuff” separate (for the most part); but, over the last few months I’ve seen quite a few “mom bloggers” talking about Virtual Assistance and How to become a Virtual Assistant. I know that many of them mean well; but, unfortunately, they have it all wrong. In fact, they are doing themselves and the Virtual Assistant industry a disservice with many of the things they say. That is why I feel compelled to break my own policy about not writing about my business here.

There are a lot of misconceptions about Virtual Assistants, working with Virtual Assistants and the Virtual Assistant industry as a whole – many of which are perpetuated by Virtual Assistants themselves (sadly). I know that writing a few blog posts won’t clear up these misconceptions overnight; BUT, I hope this series WILL help those of you stay-at-home moms reading this who may be considering a career as a Virtual Assistant.

Over the next few weeks I am going to do a series of posts about the Virtual Assistance industry: what a Virtual Assistant REALLY is, what to think about before opening a Virtual Assistant business, rates, benefits of working with a VA,  finding clients, and how to find the right VA for you.

If you have any questions during this series about working with a Virtual Assistant or becoming a Virtual Assistant, feel free to contact me at carol (at) simplecatholicliving (dot) com or use my contact page. Your can also check out my business website at http://www.carolda.com/ for more information about Virtual Assistance.

      Virtual Assistance is a relatively new administrative profession, so there are many who haven’t heard of it. I hope you’ll like the series!
