Hi Everyone! Just joined today and I'm excited to join this forum of like minded individuals. So I'm Ro, from Florida and I own a virtual assistant business (will putting the name get me banned? lol). I work a 9-5, but I love freedom and flexibility, so I wanted to step out on faith and create this business. It's fairly new, but I'm trying to learn as much as I can about VA and being a new entrepreneur.
I've done courses on Udemy (which I think is awesome, btw) and tried to find other VA's to network with. It would be nice to find some here.
So anyway, I'm glad I found this forum! I haven't read the free books yet, but I definitely want to.

Hello @RoCo1

Welcome to the Fastlane forum.

I own a virtual assistant business
Are you a virtual assistant providing VA services yourself? Do you run a business with a network of virtual assistants? Do you have a marketplace that helps companies and entrepreneurs find awesome VAs? Just curious where you sit in this game!

So anyway, I'm glad I found this forum! I haven't read the free books yet, but I definitely want to.
We're glad to see you here too, Ro. Yes, the free chapters would be a great place to stat... but you definitely want to get both of MJ's books if you want to get the whole picture and start your entrepreneurial journey on a solid foundation.

Good luck with your new entrepreneurial journey. And remember: you'll only reap from this community a multiple of what you sow in it!

Thank you!
One (wo)man show at this point, providing the services myself. Maybe one day I will run a network of VAs. I am working on building VA referrals. Have to do some networking.

Welcome to the forum. Thanks for not link dropping, just yet. Shows good taste on your part.

Are you working on any of the freelancer platforms?
Thanks!
Such as Upwork? I've tried in the past but found it difficult to find work. I do want to try again though.

Yeah, I was thinking of Upwork. It's a bit of a mixed bag, but it's a place to start.

What kind of clients do you serve for your VA work? Local folks? Or people around the country/globe?

Welcome aboard!
