I’ve worked as an online freelancer since 2011 and I’m glad to still be enjoying the work-from-home lifestyle, full-time. Starting out wasn’t easy, as there were very few resources then locally that would teach me how to navigate the online world.
I’m glad that one of my friends, Rochefel Rivera, was one of the first local online trainers who guide newbies how to survive the online workplace. She and I are part of a small group of friends, all online entrepreneurs, who will be holding a workshop (offline) for existing and aspiring virtual assistants. Please read details below. If you or anyone you know are interested in doing online work, join us in the VApreneur Workshop on October 22nd. See you there!
Professional VAs Academy, in partnership with Payoneer Philippines, invites existing and aspiring Virtual Assistants (VAs) to the VApreneur: One Day to Freedom Workshop to be held on October 22, 2016 at the Bluefin Grill in Metrowalk, Ortigas, Pasig City. The workshop aims to empower Filipino VAs to compete in the global market and fuel their businesses right in the comfort of their homes.
In this whole-day workshop, participants will learn:
- How to transition from employee to VApreneur (Virtual Assistant Entrepreneur)
- How to capitalize on their passion and existing skills while using the business model suited to their lifestyle
- Possible opportunities behind online entrepreneurship
- How to find clients that pay and appreciate the value of a VA’s work
- How to level up their skills and charge up to 10x their current rate as a Virtual Assistant.
By attending the VApreneur Workshop, participants will have the confidence to build their own home-based business as a service provider. This work-from-home arrangement will enable them to spend more time with family and friends, as well as secure their family’s future.
Rochefel Rivera of Professional VAs Academy is the lead facilitator of the workshop. Rochefel is a VA coach and an authority in the local VA industry. She regularly conducts online training sessions to help individuals get started in their VA business. Having worked as a VA herself, she saw the global opportunity in the industry but was dismayed at how Filipinos were being promoted as “cheap VAs with excellent English communication skills and work ethics.” This drove her to help VAs realize their potentials as business owners.
