Default New VA Here!
Hello Everyone,
I've just decided to open my own VA practice. I'm very excited about this and have already placed a couple of ads. I can't believe I didn't think of this before. Actually, I did do some typing at home back in 1990 but it was a totally different experience than I expect this will be. In the meantime, I will be reading, posting and absorbing all that I can about how to successfully run this business. See you in the posts!!

Denise

Hi Denise, welcome to the forums and to the industry as well!

Sounds like you're ready to go...just out of curiosity, what types of ads did you place?

Looking forward to hearing more from you

P.S. Verbatim was one of my absolute favorite games when I was a kid...

Hi Tess,
Since I've had good experiences with Craig's List, I posted a couple of ads there. I'll keep you posted if/when I get responses.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I'd be interested in hearing what kind of response you get there too. I've just started in the VA business myself and am in the process of writing some ads and setting up my web page. I'm finding it all to be very exciting!
