Did you just ditch your boss and started a new career as a remote worker? Or, are you a full-time virtual assistant doing various tasks from your loyal clients now? Perhaps you haven’t decided yet, either to go for it or forget about it and look for other options. I suggest, subscribe to my newsletter and read the FREE checklist that will help you decide about it.
Either you're just starting, a part-timer, or a full-fledged virtual assistant, you're already on your own.
Your job description will be Virtual Assistant "slash" CEO (Chief of Everything) and other side slashes at home.
There will be no HR department that will handle your legal documents for you. There will be no savvy accountants to do the math and payroll. And there will be no cute IT guy that will troubleshoot every bit of error on your computer.
So, how will you survive this crisis?
You need to be prepared.
I ensure you; you will make it!
Just like you, I've been there where you at now. I started my VA career from the ground up. I struggled and almost give up. But I didn't give up. Eventually, I survived. I met the right people and clients. I made it. And I'm grateful, I succeeded.
To be honest, I tripled my income in terms of the Philippines Peso compare to a regular office employee. With this big buck in my pocket, I started to invest it on things that matter the most in life such as insurance, real estate, savings account, and travels. Because of this, I have travelled around South East Asia. I became a backpacker “slash” virtual assistant slash CEO (Chief of Everything). See my Instagram posts or google me to view some of my travel photos.
I am the living proof that you can make a living doing online jobs as a virtual assistant at the comfort of your own home.
Well, it's not that easy. It's hard work!
So, you need to be prepared. Benjamin Franklin once said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail!”. It’s true if you don’t set goals or plans, you will never succeed.
Right now, what do you need the most in your virtual assistant career? The answer, "tons of stuff."
You're right! You need those to make it.
Either you’re just starting out or already a full-time VA, you will need a lot of documents, training modules, resources, and tools.
It's intimidating, isn't it? That's a lot!
Don't worry! I got you covered.
I will prepare them all just for you. All these things you need will be a few clicks away.
As of now, I have prepared a form which is a Contract Agreement to help you seal the deal between you and the client and if you plan to outsource some of your tasks to other virtual assistants or freelancers I have created a VA & Subcontractor Agreement. Also, a simple invoice that you can email to your client to remind them about it. I have also prepared a New Client Kit which includes Client's Assessment Form, Client Intake Form, and Client's Information Sheet.
A virtual assistant needs to know how to deal with time and manage it well, so I prepared some productivity sheets such as time management planners to help you manage time efficiently.
Good communication skills between you and your clients are the key to a successful virtual assistant career. So, I prepared some ready-to-use templates which you can send to your prospective clients. These are letters, a cover letter and followup letter. In case you need to burn bridges between you and the client, I also prepared a letter on on how to fire a client.
These are some of the things I’m using at the beginning of my VA career until today that works for me and my clients.
You may get what you only need, but I will offer you all of these as a starter kit. Right now, the value is less than it should be. It’s 50% off for the kit! But this price tag won’t last forever. So, get your copies today.

Am I Ready to Become a Virtual Assistant book by Paul is one of the best self-help books I've read. It has enlighted my thoughts either I go for it or not, work from home. I was afraid of giving up my day job, but I want to work from home. They say online work is much better.
