I am starting out as well. I am anxious to get my first client and nervous at the same time. I wish you much success with your VA business.

I just visited your website, Its awesome!! I love the graphics!! Is this a Wordpress.org site? its so cool! I am just starting my business also. I've been involved in various office positions for over 30 years, and just decided to go into business for myself. I have joined a local Business Networking Group, but I too, am wondering WHERE will I find my clients? What tips can you offer? Thanks!

I have just got my first 2 clients, mainly through networking lunches. Meeting other business owners and saying what you do has worked wonders. Someone always need help! They were networking events for women, which changes the dynamic also.

Thanks for the advice. I too am just starting out. I am focusing on getting my name out there. I have had some luck but still need a consistent way to get more clients.

I've now had my fourth contact and/or client from 2 networking events. They may not be in your town, but search and see what's around!
Now, to deal with the anxiety of having potentially too much work to do with a family.. (I know, a good problem to have)

Here is a fun idea to take some of the edge off. Attend a local expo on something you can relate to.

For example, I have recently got engaged and took the opportunity to attend our local Wedding Expo to get ideas for the wedding. But because I am always in business mode, I entered every drawing they had to see which businesses would respond to my entry. At the same time I gathered brochures and information so I could match the ones that didn't respond to my entry with a follow up call inquiring about how I could potentially help them with following up on their leads.

BTW, out of 120 entries only 6 companies contacted me for follow up. That's a lot of new business there!!
