Welcome to a new world full of opportunity and adventure!
Ten years ago a dear friend asked me to help out one of her clients who needed some help setting up software for her business. This opportunity would lead to me starting my own business. For 8 years I kept my 9-5 job while continuing to help that business run behind the scenes. Two years ago I lost my job and decided that it was time for a change. My mental health was struggling and I just couldn’t go back out to find a regular job that didn’t pay enough and took me away from my family.
So, with the encouragement of some amazing friends, I started Jones Business Solutions! Within the first six months I was able to replace my 9-5 income and 6 months after that my husband was able to go to part time hours.
I will not sit here and tell you that this is an easy path to take, but I will tell you that it is possible! I am here to help you figure out if working virtually is for you and will walk with you through this journey.
So you want to be a Virtual Assistant, but…
Where do you start?
Who is your ideal client?
How do you find clients?
How much should you charge?
What programs do you need to use?
Do you have a niche? Do you need one?
These are all common questions when trying to decide if starting your own business and working virtually is a good fit for you.
