Do you want to work from home/your own office using your PA skills but don’t know where to start?
Are you an experienced PA/EA who wants the flexibility of working from home but don’t know where to start?
Many PA’s and EA’s are enjoying the flexibility of working from home as a virtual assistant, utilising their skills and earning a decent living.
But how can you replicate their success?
You may be great at what you do in your job as a personal or executive assistant, but you already know this is not enough when setting yourself up as a VA.
You might be asking yourself these questions:
· Where do I find clients
· What do I charge

· I’m nervous presenting
· Do I need website
· Should I do marketing
· How do I do marketing
· What are the legalities
· Do I need an accountant
· What if a client doesn’t pay
