Default New VA in Ottawa, Canada
Hi everyone!

I am new to the virtual assistant business and have just launched my website http://www.espritdelegation.com I was working as a copywriter, but found jobs hard to come by, as people demanded more.

I am the mother of two boys, ages 4 and 5 and decided to start working from home when I got tired of job-hunting. My husband is in the military, and as a result, we move every 2 to 4 years. Employers don't always like to hire me, and I don't enjoy constantly looking for work. Becoming a virtual assistant is the smartest thing I've done so far.

I am currently a student in Erin Blaskie's Build your VA business program (fantastic!), and this forum came highly recommended. I've only looked around a bit so far, but can see why such good things have been said. Everyone seems very helpful, and I look forward to learning from and meeting more VA's in the future.

Loralea

Hi Loralea, welcome to the community
It's always nice to hear that Erin's VA students are popping in here too - she's got a great group of people.

I hope you'll find everything you need here, but if you have any questions or can't find something be sure to post a thread - there truly are lots of helpful VAs in here and it's great to have you as a part of the forums!

Hi there
I thought I'd jump in here with a quick answer to your question as we actually have an ad for one of Erin's classes in the sidebar of the site right now (look for the ad about the 8 week program "Build Your VA Business" - there was such great (unsolicited) feedback from our members that I decided her class would be a great first advertisement on the site.
Erin is also the feature of our December Professional VA Interview!
