So you want to be a Virtual Assistant
I often get asked by others (usually other Stay at home Mums) what being a Virtual Assistant (VA) is all about and how I got started. As much I certainly don’t mind talking about it, I thought it was about time I put a few things down on paper. So if you’re interested in finding out what a VA is, what a VA does and how you become one, read on – this is the article for you.
A VA can be many things, but in a nutshell, a VA is someone who’s there do to the IT work that a business owner a) doesn’t have time to do, b) doesn’t know how to do, or c) doesn’t want to do! Being a VA is a bit like being a secretary / personal assistant, except instead of being in the same office, you’re on the end of a phone / email.
