When I mentioned I was doing virtual assistant work, many readers wanted to learn more. I shared my limited experience in the post, My Experience as a Virtual Assistant, but I really wanted to seek out someone with more experience than I have.
Luckily, Lisa Taliga, a virtual assistant and author of 5 Key Steps to Your Successful Virtual Assistant Business, agreed to sharing her expertise. What follows are some of the typical questions I got from readers and her response:
How do you become a virtual assistant?
People tell me they get their VA jobs through their online relationships with bloggers, but I don’t have those relationships. What can I do to find a job as a VA?
Yes, that is true, that is why I don’t really look for work on those sites. There are many other better ways of finding work than on the freelance sites, such as the ones I outlined above.
Would you recommend this job for a stay at home mom with small children? Why?
