What does a Virtual Assistant Do?

Since the Pandemic, some business owners have had to shut their doors, but others have exploded in growth.

One industry that is exploding is the Virtual Assistant world. Why? Because so many business owners need help with social media, technology, and managing details. Especially since so many business owners have had to shift more online, or shift to working remotely. Now more than ever before, small business owners are hiring VAs to help them with the load.

What does it mean to own a VA Business?
You work from home
You use your own laptop and smartphone
You own your time and work on projects and client work around your own kids and family
You bill by the hour or in packages
You serve one client or many clients
You work on a retainer or per project

What does it take to be a VA?
You should love technology and love learning new things
You should be detail-oriented, slightly creative, and able to interpret what someone needs
You probably love organization and spreadsheets or graphs/charts

How do you know if growing a VA business is right for you?
I developed a Quiz to help you determine if your personality is a good fit for a VA Business. You can take it for free here: www.jenhickle.com/vaquiz

If you’ve been looking for a change and wondering how to help supplement your family’s income, growing a VA Business could be the right fit for you.
The first step is easy: take the quiz to find out if you are wired to be a VA!

Over the few years, we have been coaching VAs on how to start their business, how to set it up legally, how to get clients, and how to be proficient in doing the work of a VA.
Our VA Academy is a super fun place to hang out with other women who have similar goals and dreams!

After the first year, we revamped all of our trainings to reflect what our members really need. And now they are having so much fun working through the Challenges and earning badges to go on our VA Directory.

I coach high-level business owners who are growing and expanding, even during a pandemic. They are fully booked, have higher numbers than last year, moving into new buildings, and hiring new team members. And they need VAs! They are drowning in details and need help. That’s why I started the VA Academy!

I see the need out there for virtual assistants and because I’ve been training staff for the last 10 years, I know how to teach VAs and how to train them!

And I’d love to hear what you thought of your results!
