How I began working from home online as a Virtual Assistant

I started out as a freelance Virtual Assistant in 2015. From an events background originally, I worked as a trainer in the hospitality industry prior to becoming a Virtual Assistant. It was during my second maternity leave when I couldn’t get the sums of salary vs childcare to add up. It began just in the evenings at first and then I gradually increased my hours. I built up my clients and income once she started nursery and then school. Since then, I have worked for dozens of clients. They have included a Dental Marketing Consultant, a private scanning clinic, child sleep consultants, and a well-known scientist.

Jen has a lovely engaging quality and friendly screen presence which makes the course easy to engage with. Her journey is inspiring and demonstrates the possibilities of developing a freelance career.
