Hello from North Somerset



My name is Jess and I am based in Portishead, North Somerset. I have recently set up my VA service which is also a professional organising service, as I felt that both of the services worked well together, and I am passionate about helping organising people so that they can concentrate on doing what they love the most.

After working for 25 years I decided I wanted to take the plunge and set up my own business. I am very sociable and this forum is a fab way to meet new people in the industry.

Are there any VA groups based near me that I can join?

Any advice on the most effective route to getting new clients would be appreciated too!

Thanks all for reading, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards



Hi Jess,

Have a look at the SW VA Collaboration run by Joanne Manville and Rachel Guyat. Here’s a link to their LinkedIn group: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/8913745/

I recently changed the format of my blog and now have a category all about finding clients - it might help: https://www.vact.co.uk/category/finding-clients/

I hope that helps


Ahh that’s amazing thank you Amanda
