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 for more information about Virtual Assistance.


  1. I’ve never heard of such a thing, so I’ll be looking forward to reading about it!

      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!
