Classes will provide individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to build their own businesses as “Virtual Assistants” and to market themselves to potential clients.
One of the easiest ways to work from home is by doing virtual assistant (VA) work. Virtual assistants are skilled, home-based professionals that offer companies, businesses, and entrepreneurs administrative support. When you set up your own business, you have more flexibility with scheduling, choosing clients, and setting your rates, but you’ll also have to find your own clients, and setup your own business. These workshops will guide you through this process.
