When I began I simply just wanted to type for people and be home for my children. I thought that would last a few years and I’d go back to a job. But I didn’t know the internet was just around the corner and a whole new industry was about to birth – virtual assistants. I ended up being the founder of the industry here in Australia and have mentored over 1500 people (mainly women) in becoming VAs. Sometimes what seems a small idea can grow.

Incidentally I chose typing because I really enjoyed doing this for people. I do a lot or other things these days but that’s how it got started. So think about what you enjoy doing that hopefully wouldn’t become a chore from you and let it grow from there. Sometimes you’ll find that clients will help direct your path when they ask if you also do….? That’s what happened for me.
