Hello Everyone,

I have a 3 month old son and need to start working, but would like to stay home to raise my son. I am very skilled with computer technology, the internet, microsoft word, excel, powerpoint, ect. and am looking to become a part time virtual assistant. I would like to start small helping with simple tasks. What are the requirements to become a virtual assistant? How do I get started? and what is the average income?

Thanks in Advance.

You should be highly organised, a good communicator, good at time keeping, good at writing, good with word processing, spreadsheets and databases, etc.

To get started depends on if you are going to work for yourself or for a virtual assistant company. There may be some VA companies out there that will hire virtual assistants to work from home and give them clients to work on.

If you are working for yourself, set yourself up on sites like and and offer your services here. You should also join the virtual assistant forums if you have any more questions as these are the people in the know.
