There is no top secret formula for becoming a virtual assistant. I see so many women getting tripped up in the how of making it happen instead of looking at it for what it is. It’s a career. The only thing that makes it a little different is that you are an independent contractor which makes you a small business owner. Therefore it just takes a little more leg and admin work on the back end.

Here are my top 3 tips on how to get started as a Virtual Assistant:

  1. See how your current skills can transfer.
  2. Take the time to learn the tech you see most often.
  3. Pitch to potential clients like you would for a 9-5.
