There you have it, the number one question I receive on a regular basis.
What? You Are ALREADY an Administrative Professional!
The crazy thing is that I am asked, "How can I get started as a virtual assistant?" by people who are currently working in an office as an administrative assistant. So you may ask why I consider this crazy...well, as an onsite assistant you already have the skills necessary to get started as a virtual assistant. The next step is to work on making your transition. Here's the quick list:
- Do your research and choose your niche
- Network, network, network (online and offline)
- Transition part time and work up to full-time
- Consider hiring a seasoned VA to coach you
