Virtual Assistants / PA Services
How to become a VA
When you take the decision to become a Virtual Assistant there is a lot of help out there in what you will need to get you ready for your first client.
I found that many of the forums were a brilliant resource and that talking to other VA's via them gave me great advice.
You will quickly see that Virtual Assistants are a supportive and friendly bunch.
In this post I will list what I used to get my self off the ground and then elablorate on these in later posts
I apologise if some of this stuff seems a little basic or elementary but I wanted to provide a complete guide for everyone.
So here goes
The first thing you will need when becoming a virtual assistant is to decide what you are a specialist in.
What are your key skills and how you can offer these as a Virtual Assistant service.
When i did this I felt my key skills were touch typing and excel as well as a good telephone voice.
Before going live I decided that I didn't want to be a call centre so avoided listing that on my site.
