New to the VA world
Hi there,

My name is Yadira. I am new to the UK and new to the VA world. I have some experience from working with large organizations but I am still wondering how to start and what services to offer as a VA.

All your help is highly appreciate it.

Hello Yadira, welcome
You can start by reading through the topics here on the boards - lots of great information and encouragement to be found!

As far as what services - you should base that not only on what you're skilled to provide but on what you would enjoy doing. The great part is, as a business owner it's all up to you!

Hi girls,

Great advises. I am just a little bit nervous because I don't know a lot of people in the UK. So, I am not sure if this should be the right place to start with a VA business, what do you think?

Hi Yadira,

I wouldn't worry about being new to a location as a VA. I've never had the opportunity to visit either the UK or the US but I'm sure clients won't mind that I'm not familiar with their locations. That is the beauty of being a VA - the world is your oyster!

Good luck with your business.

Deb
