Getting Started as a Virtual Assistant

By

Pebbles Jacobo, All Things VA bloggerpebbles-startLooking to start out as a virtual assistant but don’t know where to find any paying projects and jobs? Here’s a shortlist of my personal favorites when I’m looking for VA work:

Upwork
Freelancer
Guru

iFreelance

In addition, here are some of my favorite sites found to be most informative, especially when I was just starting out as a VA:

Virtual Word Publishing
Google (there were LOTS of times I didn’t know how to do what was being asked of me, so I simply looked it up…)

Depending on the specific type of work at home work you are looking for, there are loads of sites out there. Read articles. Join message boards and forums. Buy and download audio books and ebooks. Educate yourself and the top of the hill is yours for the taking!

    A great way to find paying gigs is to get out there in the public eye. Go to MeetUps where you think your ideal clients are hanging out or other business networking events. I still find there are people out there who don’t know what a VA is. So, if you’re out there telling people I think you’re bound to find some clients.
    Good luck to those of you launching a VA business.
    Thanks.

    Debra, you’re right, there ARE a lot of people who don’t know what a VA is, but I use it as an opportunity to share about what I do. 🙂

    Sugandha, I have received so many questions about where to look online when getting started as a virtual assistant that I figured I might as well compile the list and share it with others. 🙂 Have a blessed day.
