Hello everyone, I just join. My name is Tiffany and I am working on starting up my VA business. I'm been researching, working on a website, social networking.
I have spent 7.5 years working in office administration in retail, consulting services, and oil industry.

I have tried several business ventures which weren't profitable, but the experience I gained was invaluable.
I love the idea of being a VA and using the skills I already have and getting to help people at the same time.
Staying home with my kids and being able to contribute to my families financial situation is a huge desire.

I know this forum will be so informative.

Hi Tiffany and welcome. If you don't mind me asking, what were your other business ventures about?

I tried a handcrafted jewelry business, soy candle business both of which I have experience with in trade shows. Ive also sold Avon. Its difficult to run a product business from home when you are pretty much required to have to be out and about trying to sell the customers when you have young children.

Welcome to VAF Tiffany! Many of us started out because we wanted the same as you. Family is so important and small children need their parents as much as possible. I'm a single mom with 2 kids and this my one and only job. So it can be done. I wish you the best of luck!
