I asked questions from a Virtual Assistant SEO specialist Miss Jean Diaz how she started her career. It was 9 yrs.ago since she decided to try freelancing, she was hesitant at first but then she took the risk. When she recalls her challenges, the struggles she encountered during her first yr. she was emotional but was smiling and I can imagine how she overcome those trying times..
The relationship with you and the client is important. Don't accept tasks you can't do, do not overload your schedule for your health is at stake. Also prepare yourself to work not because you have some credit to pay, because we do not have that 100% assurance of getting the pay check. She was talking it by experienced. She experienced it twice already, that after all the hardwork, she got nothing, and there was nothing she can't do but cry.. Sad but she's not alone, she knows and heard same stories from some freelancer she knew..
Knights of Online Marketers where she is one of the trainor. My interview is just less than an hour but I can say ma'am Jean is an inspiration to many inspiring VA like myself.
