What is a Virtual Assistant?

Hi! Here’s my blog about being a VA. I need to understand further what I should be expecting if I decided to be a VA in the near future. Especially my husband and I are planning to have a baby soon. We want to focus also in taking care of our baby. So working at home would be a great idea, my husband can focus on our home business and mine as a VA.

I am a visual kind of person, I love reading a lot but I also want to summarize everything. So I put my blog in an easy- to-read format. Hope this would help
