Now that it is time to reflect on the past year you can clearly see how successful or unsuccessful you have been. Did you achieve all the goals you set into place for the year? The reason it is so important to reflect is so you can learn from any mistakes and apply new goals and plans to ensure a more successful New Year.
Even though a lot of physical jobs are becoming non existent many more virtual positions are becoming available almost on a daily basis. Have you ever thought about changing over to the Internet to replace your income?
Below is some further info from a gentleman who runs one of the first Virtual Assistant Networks ever:
I run Australia’s oldest Virtual Assistant Network and it is the second oldest in the world. While I have been in business since March 1994, the network has been operative since April 1996. My first member was (and still is) based in Los Angeles, USA. My next oldest members (in terms of how long they’ve been members) are located here in Melbourne, Australia, with many others throughout the country. We also have many members in other countries too.
While I cannot guarantee how much work you’ll get, I can tell you this, if you’re good at what you can do, if you pay attention to detail, spend time getting to know our industry, participate in all that is offered to you as a member of our VA Directory network, then you will gain clients and build up a good business.
Some join our network and are ready to run with it, picking up clients quickly. Others take a bit longer. When you join to become a member of our VA team, you are provided with a small booklet with advice and guidance in setting up your business, brochures you can use to give out to prospective clients, a listing on our website, access to our job leads listings, a free email account (if you need one) and membership of our VA chat forum where you can mix and mingle, and learn from other VAs. For those who feel they need extra help in getting started, we also have a 10 week VA Training Course available.
If this is something you’ve been thinking about for sometime, then now is as good a time as any, to get started. All you have to do is fill out the registration form to become a member of our Virtual Assistant Network, submit your resume and subscription fee (charged annually) and we can get you added to the team in a very short time. Hope to see you join us very soon!
Oh, and by the way, because you’ll be classed as a self-employed business owner/operator, all fees you pay are a taxable expense.
So if you have been thinking about jumping into the virtual realm to replace your existing income or to create one online, you seriously need to buckle down and do some research. Luckily with all of the resources on this site we make it pretty easy for you to get started!
Do you have any advice from your own virtual experiences to share with our readers that are seriously considering making this change?
