It took me a while to introduce myself here as I’m a bit overwhelmed not really knowing how to get/find my customers and have gone back to part time nanny and lots of other part time jobs. But I still am really hoping to show others that I can do it and really want to make it work.
I’m a nomad with 10+ years of low budget solo travel experience internationally, am a passionate newborn/child photographer, mixed media children’s illustrator, and advocate for mental health. So I’m hoping to help people with travel research and booking (but not as travel agent), help with the editing load of child & wedding photographers, (hopefully adding product photography once I safe up for supplies), and other bits they might need help with, and helping mental health professionalists with bits of their work or mental health app developers and similar to create content, uplifting quotes, understanding messages, maybe even managing a FB MH group. I feel like I can help with photography/editing and mental health the most because other nomads don’t really need help planning and business trips don’t require much time to plan. Or at least that’s what other people say. That everyone is capable of planning their own trip or would look for travel agents. I don’t have a supportive network and connections. So they either get annoyed and upset when I reach out or say that nobody needs a VA. Which makes it hard continuously believing in the journey, while not finding clients since October.
Anyway, while I’m not having the traditional admin skills and can’t seem to wrap my head around them now social media skills, traveling, mental health, and photography/editing are all things I’m really good at. I do dog walking and training and am an Under 3 alternative nanny too with great experience and skills. If anyone has an idea on how to offer those skills and reach clients or knows someone in these categories that you weren’t able to help because it’s not your expertise or even just hearing for a change that people need my skills and it’s not a stupid journey - I would appreciate it all!
Are we allowed to share a link to website or instagram here? Not sure. But I can post it if anyone is interested in working together.
