My name is Aliet (pronounced similar to elite, but with an A; I know, but I didn’t choose it, my mother did! It’s a Dutch name).
I live on the Rosneath Peninsula in Scotland and moved here from Cape Town, South Africa, six months ago, where I started my VA business, The Office Assistant, in 2006! So, I’ve been a VA for 13 years! At present I have three South African based clients but am now looking to market my business in the area I live in, and further afield too.
I love working for myself and also love promoting the VA-style of working to potential clients who have either never heard of working with a Virtual Assistant or who have, but are unsure of how to find a VA they can work with.
I look forward to sharing ideas and learning from all of you. I am presently working on a new website, registering my business in the UK and learning how things are done differently here compared to South Africa.
Thanks for welcoming me into your forum!
