How did I become a virtual assistant?
My career evolved from a physical therapist in 2001-2005 (I studied IT in 2003) to medical language specialist in 2006 until 2010 and medical language editor in mid of 2011 until the end of 2014. In 2014, I studied freelancing, particularly virtual assisting. Back then, I was like so many other VAs. There are lots of things that I didn’t know about. I learned what I could through reading books, attending many workshops, webinars plus seminars. Through these, I gained a lot of knowledge and valuable information. Because of this, I wrote my first eBook Virtual Assistant Startup Kit: What You Must Know.
Things became so much easier the moment I figured out how to market my business “the right way.” Because of this, I found ideal client(s) that fits my skills and helped me earn more than I anticipated. Indeed, it is possible to make a living in the comfort of your own home and do what you love at your own pace in time.
Success doesn’t come easy, take note of that. I owe my success to God, continuous learning, building meaningful relationships, hard work and taking action.
I’d love to help you live life in YOUR own terms!
