What Can I Offer to Clients as a Virtual Assistant?

Updated: Jan 26, 2023



We are living in the digital age, it's truly never been easier to create a business from the comfort of our living rooms. 


Not only creating a business, but creating your own schedule and your own $5k per month income - doesn't that sound amazing?


I know! Suddenly you're able to take Wednesdays off, you can take your family to the park for lunch, you could pull up a chair and relax beachside two states away.. the possibilities are endless.


But how could I make that happen? 


How will I pay the bills if I leave my day job? 


What if I make a mistake? 


What if I try and I fail? 


These are all valid questions - and trust me, I asked the same exact questions when I was just starting out. 

In the world of big business and small business, there are immense amounts of tasks that business owners just don't have the time to do - or don't necessarily want to do - themselves. Tasks such as calendar management, email organization, making online purchases, sending thank you cards, liking posts on social media, caption writing, bookkeeping, researching, project management, digital marketing, and so much more. 

So what does that have to do with you? 

Well, if you're taking care of these tasks, the business owner can focus on bigger projects and their important meetings. 


You save an entrepreneur time = you make an entrepreneur (yourself) money. 

You don't need a particular degree to get these tasks done either, just pre-existing skills or the drive to learn these skills from online resources.
