Virtual Assistant Business - Do You Have What it Takes?

A virtual assistant business is a great way for a mom to earn an extra income from home, but there some things to consider. Read this article from Nell Taliercio and Jennifer Houck, creators of the How to Become a VA home study course, to see if you have what it takes...

Do You Have What it Takes to Become a VA?

If you have any previous administrative experience, working from home as a virtual assistant seems like an easy way to end the daily commute to your job outside the home. However, just because you have the knowledge, skills and abilities in virtual assisting, does not automatically mean you have what it takes to be a VA.

Before you consider starting a virtual assistant business you need to determine if you are disciplined to work hard without a boss looking over your shoulder. If you're the type who is easily distracted, unfocused and disorganized then becoming a virtual assistant may not be for you.

There are a number of areas to seriously consider before you hang a shingle and call yourself a VA. Can you make a schedule and stick to it? Can you meet all deadlines? Do you have a screaming baby or a barking dog that would interfere with needed phone calls?

You will be responsible for the marketing, accounting, and all operations of the business. Do you have the personality or drive to promote yourself; to let others know about your services? Jobs will not simply fall into your lap. Competition is keen.

Are you prepared to initially work long hours and multiple jobs simultaneously? Will your household survive the potential loss of income as you start your VA business?

Do you have a specialized niche? Do you enjoy article submissions, search engine optimization, presentation creation, accounting, or web design? You should not try to be all things to all people. Determine your best skills; then promote those services to the target market who will most benefit.

While starting a virtual assistant business requires a much smaller financial investment than some other businesses, there are still expenses. You must have a reliable computer and the ability to use the telephone at the same time you're online. You'll also need a decent printer and a fax machine.

Run your business like a business. Every VA should have a website which highlights skills and services. If you don't have the skills or money to have a professionally designed website, you better start saving or learning. A less than professional website will absolutely hurt your business - guaranteed.

Do you have what it takes to be a virtual assistant? If you have the skills, the personality or drive and some available funding you just very well may have what it takes to be a great VA. Follow your dreams!


Nell Taliercio and Jennifer Houck grew successful virtual assistant businesses quickly and are showing you how to do the same thing in their complete How to Become a VA course.
