Hi from Bucks!


#1

Hi all :slightly_smiling_face: I’m just starting my VA business whilst working full-time. Hoping to leave the full-time job eventually once my VA work is up and running. Really looking forward to learning as I go and watching others develop as well!

Hi Kate,

How exciting! I was working part-time (due to childcare) when I set up my VA business. It is great as you can still earn whilst creating the foundations.

Just don’t take on too much work initially before leaving your full-time job… it is tiring trying to work day and evenings and to be in tip top form.

Key tip - network… as soon as people hear about you from others the business will come in.

Good luck with everything :):smiley:

Hi Keira,

Thank you so much, it is tough going isn’t it, doing everything! But your advice is great, I will try not to take on too much VA work initially as my full-time job is still very demanding.

Thanks for the networking tip as well - I’m definitely trying to connect with as many people as possible, particularly on LinkedIn! Once my website is up and running in a few weeks, I’ll really get myself out there :blush:

Thanks again and have a great day!

Kate

Hi Amanda,

Really good thank you! I’ve got my first two clients, my branding has just been finalised and I’m going to start getting my website sorted so all’s going in the right direction!

Thanks for asking :smile:

I hope all is well with you too!

Kate
