Are you considering becoming a Virtual Assistant? Do you think you have the skills and the mindset all in the right place, yet you can’t find that first gear to set the wheels in motion. Fear not! We’ve all been there when we started our own VA business, so you are not alone.
The Most Important Thing: Ask Questions
The most important question you can ask when you’re becoming a Virtual Assistant is: “Where do I start?” It’s that simple. You have found the first gear and you’ll quickly find out how smoothly you move into second, third, and so on. Reach out to other Virtual Assistants for their guidance. It will give your business a huge boost because of the wealth of knowledge that will be shared with you.
It’s also important to keep in the habit of asking questions. Nobody will ever think you are silly, annoying, or a pain in the rear end. Instead, you will be giving others an opportunity to showcase and share their knowledge and prompt a thought to those that have not yet considered that element of their business.
Questions get you further in life and as good ol’ Dr. Seuss once said: “Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.” So get out there and ask everything you need to know about becoming a Virtual Assistant.

I am interested in becoming a virtual assistant. I am confident I have the skill sets, the confidence, drive and see as a form of my self-expression. I am not sure where to begin or even how to begin. And these is where I begin to talk myself out of having the dream job I have always envisioned for myself.
