People ask all the time how to make money online. There are many ways to do so, but one excellent idea is to take a skill you already possess and turn it into a service you can offer online. I've done this myself. Many people have done it. The internet has made it possible to do so many things remotely, or, "virtually."
Types of things you can do virtually (I bet you'll see one you could do too)
A lot of people hear "virtual assistance" and think of administrative assistance, like a secretary. It can mean that, but it can also mean writing, ghostwriting, designing, researching, editing, tutoring, desktop publishing, counseling, audio/video/photo editing, coaching, consulting, bookkeeping, copywriting, social media management, project management, transcription, programming and anything else you can do without having to be in the same physical location as your client. You can call this "virtual assistance."
"Sounds good," you say, "but how exactly do I get started?"
I highly, highly, highly recommend the ebook, The Bootstrap VA: The Go-Getter's Guide to Becoming a Virtual Assistant, Getting and Keeping Clients, and More! by Lisa Morosky.
This is, hands down, one of the best ebooks I've read. It's packed with tons of actionable material. It's like taking a college course. Seriously.
Lisa has worked as a virtual assistant for many years. After reading half of her ebook, I was so impressed, I hired Lisa to be my own virtual assistant. She knows her stuff.
