I am so pleased to find this group. I am not even a newbie, if there was a stage before newbie, then thats me. I only recently found that about the Virtual Assistant career and it instantly sounded like something I have been working towards the last 20 years.
However, before I get the balls rolling to make the jump I would really appreciate any advice you can give me, such as:
Do I need to up skill? I was a secretary/PA for about 10 years and a marketing/business development professional for the last 10.
What do you think about working for a Virtual Assistant company? Setting up on my own is a bit scary and wondered if anyone had worked for a VA company before setting up on their own.
If there are any VAs out there in Manchester/Cheshire that would be happy to meet up and share experiences, I would love that.
I hope to hear from you.
