Becoming a virtual assistant can be a fulfilling and lucrative career path, as it allows you to work remotely and use your skills and expertise to assist clients from anywhere in the world. There are many ways to get started as a VA, and they all range in difficulty and price. Here are a couple of strategies you can use to get started if being a VA is the job for you.
Starting from Scratch
Although starting from scratch may seem like the easiest option as they are no additional fees, it can be complicated and time-consuming. Building a business from the ground up with no previous experience or clientele can be very challenging, especially if you have no formal training or connections in the industry.
Taking a Course
Another option for starting your VA journey is taking a virtual assistant training course. This can be a great way to get accredited as a VA and connect with other upcoming industry professionals.
Here at CVA, we have put together an extensive and well-thought-out course that lets you learn the ins and outs of the VA industry from seasoned professionals. Our eight training modules teach you how to build a VA-specific resume that showcases your talents and attracts your ideal clients. We have included specific resources and business tools to help you grow your business, even if you are new to the VA industry. During the course, our students can meet with other upcoming VAs and receive peer-to-peer support. Growing with a community of like-minded people is a great way to network and build connections that will benefit you in your future career.
Our course is created and taught by VAs who have already found success in their chosen fields. What better way to learn than by listening to people who have already succeeded in doing what you want to do.
Whether you make the decision to participate in a training program or start from scratch, we wish you the best on your VA journey! We encourage you to take a look around our site and take advantage of some of the free resources we have available. At TVL, we are very proud to be supporting a growing community of like-minded VAs, and we would love to have you along for the ride.
