Fiona and I first connected on Twitter when I was looking for fellow Virtual Assistants to connect with. I was immediately drawn to her since my youngest daughter’s name is also Fiona.
When did you start your business?
1st July 2010
Why did you choose to become a Virtual Assistant?
I have been doing this work for a while now for my ‘other half’ with his small business. So I thought I’d extend the services to a broader range of people. When I started I never realised what a huge industry this actually is.
What advice would you give new and aspiring VAs?
Be prepared and research. There is so much information out there that it can be overwhelming. Have a clear market and goal to start.
What resources have helped you in your business?
Good time management and my iphone. Some of the apps, I could not do without, such as Hootsuite for social media, Dropbox and Bjango Jobs.
Share something about yourself such as a hobby.
In my spare time (what little I have) I like to read and also dance. My favourites shows have en escapist theme. Lois & Clark, Big Bang Theory, Charmed, Twilight series (novels and movies)
