How do you start a virtual assistant business?

When I started my virtual assistant business, I remember spending hours getting lost down rabbit holes of Internet searching.

There were so many people running virtual assistant businesses and more people offering ‘advice’. It was hard to know what I should listen to and what I should ignore.

Having a mentor around you as you’re growing your business (and even after you’re established), is one of the best things I did.


The VA Mentor will help you grow the business you want!   After having my business for the last 10 years I know how important it is to work with someone who understands the industry and has done it!


What does a VA do?

A VA is a virtual worker. You run a business remotely and offer a service to your clients. One of the biggest things to remember is that you’re not an employee and you no longer have a resume – you’re a business owner! You have a LinkedIn profile or a portfolio or a website you direct your clients too.

As a VA, you’re responsible for providing all of your office equipment and handle your leave, superannuation and tax payments. You will also only be paid for the time you work, or by set hours or packages you work out with your client.

The term VA can cover many different virtual contractors:

  • General admin support providers
  • Online business managers
  • Social media managers
  • Receptionists
  • Web designers
  • Brand and graphic designers
  • Copywriters
  • Event planners
  • Tender writers and many others.

Many VAs niche into service areas, or for a particular client type or industry. They find this helps zone their marketing and they’re able to book in more clients.
