If you’re here today you are looking for Virtual Assistant Jobs from Home to Start Your Business Today!
In 2015 I became a stay-at-home mom. Prior to being a stay at home mom, I was a child educator. I joined a direct sales company that went well with my background. When searching high and low for legitimate work-from-home job opportunities, there were a million and one direct sales companies to join. Of course, jumping on someone else’s bandwagon is the easiest thing to do when you do not have a big budget and are looking to start making money now. But honestly, for me, direct sales just wasn’t my thing. I then came upon virtual assistance and what I love about it is that if you have a computer or even just a phone with internet, you can be a virtual assistant too. Instead of trying to sell people products, you can sell them the value of your skills and rather than becoming a salesy burden lady you become the go-to asset that people need in their lives! The potential for virtual assistance is honestly limitless and really what it boils down to is, what are you great at that can add value to others that you can do online or over the phone?
When I made this list, I included all the things I thought I was best at that could help my particular niche, which is small business women. If you want to see my list you can check it out by clicking here. I basically broke down some of my skills into four categories:
1. Organization & Maintenence
3. Marketing & Growth Development

What is a Virtual Assistant?
Virtual Assistants are independent contractors who provide a wide range of administrative, technical, or creative business services to clients by utilizing today’s modern technology. By working virtually, you can provide services and support world-wide, so really the potential is limitless!
How much do Virtual Assistants make?
It depends what country you live in. I’m based in the United States and I would say average starting rates are between $20-$25/Hour and from there the income potential is once again, limitless. You decide your own pay and with experience and refining or even building new skills, your income potential increases.
How do I get started as a Virtual Assistant?
I would suggest make a list of your administrative, technical, and creative skills and then targeting 3 main skills you are strongest at. Find out your “niche” and pitch to your target market how you can add value to them. Your first clients can even be family, friends, or aquaintances. But do not be afraid to venture out and reach out to strangers too. Social Media is a great platform to network and connect with new and potential clients.
What services can I offer?
The sky is the limit. Think about what you are passionate about, what you are great at, and what you would love to do for the rest of your life happily. Then frame this into how can this add value to others and who is it that you wan tto add value to? Your answer will be found there.
