Hello everyone,

I am just learning about being a VA and would appreciate any help. I have worked as a paralegal, administrative assistant to the vice president of a company and was credit manager over a wholesale book company (did a lot of customer service, billing, A/R, collections, etc.). So as you can see I have had experience in a lot of different places. I recenlty decided to quit the workforce to go back to law school. During my first year I got pregnant and had a little girl. So now I have decided to see if I can find something to do from home so I can also take care of my daughter. As I mentioned before I do not know a lot about this any help/information would be greatly appreciated.

There are lots of great resources here; I suggest reading the "getting started" section first. How old is your daughter?

Here is a pic of my daughter. She looks just like her daddy so if she isn't in pink or purple she looks like a boy.


Thanks for everyones help. I am going to start getting all the information together and do what I need to do to get started.

Mish01, my background is also working with a local firm for the past 11 years, and 8 years in accounting and banking. I've found that there is a lot potential for working with attorneys, I just have to get my business off the ground. Good luck!
