Becoming a Virtual Assistant - The Naked Truth!

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my life as a virtual assistant (VA)/online business manager recently. It all started with a conversation I had recently with a good friend who said to me, “well, you should have plenty experience to share with others who are thinking about starting up in that line of work.”

To be honest, I’d never really thought about sharing my experiences. Then I slept on it and realised I DO have a lot to share.

I’ve run my own VA practice for a very long time now. Twenty years in fact (which makes me a veteran and gave me the idea for the name The Veteran VA).

I know there are a lot of people out there that dream of being their own boss so I thought why not share the good, the bad and the ugly of what running a business is really like.

When I started looking back over the years, I now realise it’s been quite a journey!

So, if you’re thinking that you’d like to at least find out about how to become a VA, how to transform from working full time to becoming your own boss, and how to avoid the major pitfalls of starting your own VA practice, then you’ll want to read my story.

And even if you’ve had your VA practice up and running for a while, I hope you’ll find tapping into my experiences quite interesting too.

Over the next weeks and months, I am going to start sharing my VA adventures with you via my blog and social media.

No holds barred.

I’ve called my story “Becoming a VA - The Naked Truth’.


Because there will be no fluff. It will be plain, straight forward talk.

Not only will I share my story, I’ll share with you some golden nuggets too. The things I wish I’d have known way back when.

Some of the topics I’ll cover are:

• How to avoid the typical traps most VAs fall into without realising
• What to invest in and what to walk away from
• How to go on holiday and still earn an income – even if your business is only you
• How to keep your business going when your personal life’s a mess
• What passive income is and why it’s so important
• The pros and cons of hiring a team
• The importance of self-value
• What working from home is really like and why it’s not for everyone

There’ll be lots more too. I’ll also be sharing some great resources.
