Description

First, let me begin my introducing myself.  My name is Lisa L Curry, The VA Expert!  I became a Virtual Assistant in 2005 with not a clue in the world as to what a virtual assistant was or how to become one. I knew I wanted to work from home. I wanted the flexibility to set my own hours and be my own boss. I struggled at first. I found myself bidding on jobs on freelance websites competing with people from all over the world, some willing to work for $2 an hour. Because I was clueless to the industry and at the time did not know any other way, I was landing clients making between $6 and $8 an hour. Really?! I made more than this in the corporate world. Why was I giving that up just for flexibility?

Needless to say, it was a long trying road but, I did in fact, overcome this. There were many long hours of researching ways to succeed and how to market, etc. Three short years later, in 2008 I successfully opened a Virtual Assistant business that staffed over 20 virtual assistants. Now here I am, almost 8 years later working less than I ever have before, making more money than I could imagine, and being the leader I have always wanted to be.
