Are you dreaming about hitting the road in your home-on-wheels but wondering how on earth you’re going to fund it all? Well, keep reading because this info could change your life.
Oh gosh, I know how cheesey that sounds, but I really can’t think of a better way to put it, so read on and it will all make sense in the end… I promise.
As you know, the world is going more and more digital every day, and more and more companies are allowing, or even requesting, their employees to work “remotely”… aka: work from home.
A lot of companies are even getting rid of the “employee” model altogether and are, instead, paying self employed remote contractors, or “Virtual Assistants” (aka VA) to complete tasks that don’t need specific expertise or hands-on physical presence.
Certain “global events” over the last few years have been a huge factor in the massive growth of this self employed Virtual Assistant trend, and those same global events are also responsible for the huge increase in American’s switching to the RV lifestyle, instead of traveling overseas.
While that may sound like doom and gloom to some, this combination has actually created an amazing opportunity, never before seen in the history of the United States, for all us RV lifestylers.
What to expect
Hopefully, by the end of this blog post, you’ll see the amazing potential for yourself, and for anyone else thinking about hitting the road, but is worried about the money side of things.
You’ll also have a full understanding of the concept of being self employed as a VA, working remotely, and how that relates specifically to RVers such as yourself.
We’ll talk about what a VA is, some of the tasks you might do, what you’ll need to get set up (and how), and most importantly, how to actually get the work, and keep the income rolling in, all while having complete control over your own work hours… and the view from your office.
What is a VA?
In case I waffled on too much at the beginning, simply put, a virtual assistant is basically a remote worker who helps businesses, entrepreneurs, or busy people with all sorts of tasks and services that can be completed online via laptop or mobile phone.
What does a VA do?
Those tasks and services can be as general as managing emails and data entry, or as specialized as graphic design and content writing.
Some other general VA tasks you may find yourself doing are:
- Customer Support
- Booking appointments
- Data gathering
- Social media management
- Travel planning
Some of the more specialized VA Tasks you could move into are things like:
- Graphic design
- Writing and editing
- Web development
- Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
- Project management
- Ad management
- Online Marketing
There are plenty more… and I mean a whole lot more… and we’ll go into more detail later, but for now I just wanna give you a taste of the possibilities.
Generally a VA offers services that are based on their own skills and interests… in other words:
You have control over what you do and who you work for.
What you’ll need
Here are some of the basics that you’ll need to get set up. They are all equally as important as each other so I haven’t listed them in any specifc order or importance.
You may even need more than what’s on here, depending on what kind of work you want to specialize in, but these are the bare essentials.
We may as well start with the most obvious ones first. You are going to need a cell phone for communicating with clients, whether by text or call, and seeing as there are more mobile devices on the planet than there are people, I’m going to assume you already have one, it already does everything you want it to do, and you’re on a decent data plan, so let’s move on to the next most obvious requirement.
You’re definitely going to need a laptop, but don’t make the mistake we made early on and accidentally buy a “notebook” thinking it’s just a cute little travel sized laptop. It’s not. It’s a whole different thing.
Spend a few hours staring at a 9 inch screen and you’ll understand what the term “eye strain” means.
Besides that, they’re quite limited in speed and storage so basic tasks take longer than usual, and once you get in the flow you’ll start to wish your laptop could keep up with you.
It doesn’t need to be a super computer either, unless you’re doing graphic design or video editing, etc. but I’m assuming that if you are in that type of field already, you know what your computer requirements are.
Occasionally you will need to get on a Zoom call with a potential client, so that they know they’re dealing with a human being, and then sometimes with an existing client who would rather speak to you face to face as opposed to writing up an email. So you will need a laptop that can handle some kind of video calling and not be dropping out and breaking up while you’re trying to talk.
I won’t go into specifics of what and what not to get because I’m not a computer expert and I don’t wanna cost you more than you need to spend, so talk to someone that sells laptops and tell them what you need it for and they should be able to steer you in the right direction.
But generally a middle of the range laptop will handle most of your workload. If it doesn’t fit in a backpack then it’s probably overkill.
In short, don’t pinch pennies and buy something too small and too slow, but at the same time, don’t go too high end if you don’t need super high levels of graphics and video.
Everyone is built differently so I’m not gonna pretend to know exactly what type of chair and desk you need, but you do need to be comfortable if you’re going to spend any amount of time working from your RV.
As a 20 year sufferer of back pain, I can tell you that your physical comfort levels do affect your productivity levels, and as someone who also struggles with self discipline and focus I can tell you that what may feel comfortable while scrolling through social media watching movies on your laptop, suddenly feels totally different when it comes time to actually do some work.
While you’re on social media or watching movies, your brain is in receiving mode, your hands are doing minimal work, and it’s easy to get comfortable while you just sit back and take in endless streams of data/entertainment.
But as soon as it’s time to start work, your brain has to switch into output mode and your hands are required to do much more activity, eg, typing.
It sounds funny, I know, but it’s a whole different mental and physical state, and the second you switch over to work mode, your body will instantly give you all the reasons why you should switch back to relaxation mode.
For me, it does this in the form of back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, etc. none of which seem to bother me when I’m in relaxation mode. But the second I need to sit up and engage a few muscles, I am suddenly aware of all of it, and now my mind is battling my body’s resistance to work, and productivity falls by the wayside.
We could go into different types of desks, chairs, mouse pads, laptop stands, etc. but everyone is different, so the main thing to take away from this point is…
Make sure you are going to be comfortable in “work mode”, not just “relax mode”. They are two very different things. Especially if you are one of the 65 million Americans who have back pain.
Privacy & Distractions
If you are prone to distraction (guilty your honor), you will obviously want to set yourself up somewhere away from noise and interruption.
Noise Vs Quiet
It’s not my place to tell you how to run your family (or pet life) so I’ll leave that part up to your own judgment, heehee, but as far as noise is concerned a good pair of noise canceling earphones can do wonders, especially if you like to listen to music while you work.
If you don’t need music to focus, then a simple pair of earplugs will do the trick. They hardly cost anything and come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and noise deadening qualities.
It’s also a good idea to install some kind of app or software that blocks certain distractions and websites on your computer during work hours.
There’s a whole bunch of browser extensions out there that allow you to block social media, video sites, messenger apps, etc so that when you’re in focus mode, you don’t find yourself scrolling away an hour or two when you’re supposed to be earning some income.
You can get away with intermittent access to the internet if you plan your day correctly as some tasks can be performed offline and then uploaded later on, but there are some tasks that will require steady internet access.
As mentioned above, if the work you’re doing requires being on Zoom calls, Skype calls, etc or conversing with customers via email or chat support, then you will need a good reliable connection.
There’s a few options for you here so I will try and cover them enough without getting too bogged down in the details.
Most RV parks and campsites will have some kind of Wi-Fi signal you can tap into, and some of them are even free… and some of them are even good!
Then there’s coffee shops and shopping malls. These will sometimes have free Wi-Fi and somewhere to sit and work. Just be aware that you’ll generally be expected to buy something if you’re gonna sit there and use the Wi-Fi.
Some places won’t be terribly thrilled about you buying 1 coffee and sitting there for 8 hours using their Wi-Fi, so just use some common sense and common courtesy and you’ll be fine.
If you can’t find a good Wi-Fi signal, here are some more options:
We traveled around Australia for 2 years (building this website) using nothing but our cellphones as a mobile hotspot. As long as we had a cellphone signal, we had an internet connection and we never had any major problems. We even watched countless hours of Netflix and YouTube (on cold wet nights) and only sometimes ran out of data towards the end of the month.
But what we should’ve done, in hindsight, is have a whole separate cellphone plan for our business so we could write it off as a business expense, and just use our personal ones for Netflix and YouTube.
But these days, you can get unlimited data plans anyway, so you can use your business phone to do your personal stuff and the business pays for it all.
DISCLAIMER: I am not a tax professional or financial adviser. Do not listen to anything I say… ever!
“Wi-Fi extenders, also known as Wi-Fi repeaters or range extenders, are devices that help to expand the coverage area of your Wi-Fi network. They work by receiving the Wi-Fi signal from your router and rebroadcasting it, effectively extending the range of your wireless network.”(I ripped that straight from ChatGPT – might as well put the robots to work, am I right?)
Wi-Fi Boosters are slightly different in that they just boost the existing signal and don’t need to be set up and networked the same way an Extender does.
I don’t really know if these are legal in all countries, but they are fine in the US, as long as you follow the guidelines.
But basically, if you have a signal and it’s not very strong, you can install a Wi-Fi extender or booster and some people find them to be enough to have a reliable internet connection in the RV.
Satellite Internet is quite literally a satellite floating around in space that bounces the Wi-Fi signal from your service provider, back down to Earth.
You simply install a satellite dish on your RV, which picks up the Wi-Fi signal, which your modem then uses to send data back and forth, allowing you to access the internet just like a normal person… a normal person who doesn’t have to commute to work everyday.
It does cost a little more than a standard set up, and it does have a slight delay, of about half a second, because of the distance the signal has to travel, which would only really be noticeable if you’re on a Zoom call or something, but the great thing is, it gives you internet access pretty much anywhere on the planet.
Power Supply & Batteries
If your RV runs on batteries, using your laptop all day long will drain those batteries much faster than usual if you’re not set up correctly.
Obviously, if you have a powered camp site then you don’t need to worry, but for those of us who like to live dangerously, here are some ways to make sure you can run your laptop all day (if you choose) without draining your batteries.
Solar Panels (and inverter)
If you’re going to be “off-grid” for any amount of time, you’ll be relying on sunlight for power and you no doubt already know you’ll need solar panels and some kind of inverter to turn that 12-volt DC battery power into a usable 120-volt AC power for all your electrical appliances.
But if you’re going to be running a laptop for a few hours during the day, then you’re gonna need to amp things up a bit (pardon the pun) when it comes to your solar power setup.
When we bought ours, we told the salesman that we’ll be running 2 laptops, 2 phones, a portable refrigerator and some interior lighting, and he sold us a setup that he assured us was more than enough.
It turns out it wasn’t nearly enough and we pretty much killed our batteries in the first week cos we ran them dry, and apparently you’re not even supposed to let them get below 50%.
We ended up having to buy more than twice the number of solar panels, and we still had to turn our refrigerator off at night to conserve power. Which was ok for me, personally, being half English, I don’t mind a warm beer every now and then.
But all cheekiness aside, folks, the lesson here is, don’t just take the word of some retail store sales clerk. Do some research. Ask around in forums, FB groups, question and answer sites, etc.
We have a blog post coming up in the near future about this exact topic so stay tuned for that.
Meanwhile, let’s get back on track with some more power solutions.
Some people opt for a gas powered generator to keep the power going when the sun has gone down, and these will do the job nicely for running your RV home office, but they are quite noisy and require a supply of gas on hand and somewhere to store it all.
They are also heavy to move around if you don’t have one already built into your RV, and can be quite expensive, depending on what you get.
Personally, I’m not a fan of them as the noise affects everyone within earshot and it’s not very considerate of other campers. They do have quieter (and more expensive) ones these days though.
Portable Power Station (PPS)
A portable power station kinda sorta does the same job as a generator but is more like a huge battery in that it doesn’t continually generate more power.
It has a significant amount of electrical charge inside it but once that runs out, it will need to be recharged again, just like any other battery.
The advantage of them is that they are much smaller than a generator, they’re very quiet, they give off zero emissions, and they can get you through an emergency when you really need power and you have no other options.
They can be recharged during the sunlight hours if you hook them up to your solar panels, or via any normal wall plug-in or car charge adapter.
Ready to go
So now that you have the necessary physical requirements for setting yourself up as an RV-living Virtual Assistant, it’s time to dive into some of the less tangible, but equally important, requirements, or atleast considerations.
Work Schedule & Time Management
It’s important to separate your work hours from your leisure time for a few reasons.
One is when it comes to billing your client. You might have some tasks or services that are charged by the hour, so when you invoice your client you need to be able to provide documentation showing the exact amount of time you spent on a particular task, and in some cases, depending on the mutually agreed upon contract, regular screenshots of you working on the job you’re billing them for.
That may sound a bit bizarre to some, but we will go into more detail on that later, and again, there’s a whole bunch of browser extensions, apps, and software out there designed to make it all very easy to do and setup.
Obviously, the whole point of this is to be out enjoying your life, while only working a few hours a day (or week) to cover your costs and keep the dream alive, and that’s all the more reason to separate work hours from normal life.
How many hours a day you spend working is entirely up to you, but it’s important to clearly define those hours so that when it’s time to close the laptop and be present with the family or your surroundings, you can totally switch your work brain off and just enjoy the moment.
It sounds like basic common sense, I know, but it’s too easy to blur the lines and find yourself trying to relax on the beach, while subconsciously feeling guilty about the amount of work you didn’t get done that day, and beating yourself up for simply trying to relax.
Don’t ask me how I know this!
There are 2 ways to approach solving this problem though, and everyone’s different so neither of them are right or wrong. It’s just a matter of figuring out what works for you and what doesn’t.
One way is to schedule exact times of the day that you will start work and stop work. Eg. 9am Work – 12pm lunch – 1pm Work – 4pm Stop work.
Michelle and I tried this for years and it works wonders for her productivity because it gives her structure to her day and she knows exactly what she is doing at any given time of the day, and more importantly, allows her to switch off and relax when the work day is done.
For me though, I resist any form of routine or ritual and it requires a level of discipline I simply do not possess, so all I personally commit to is a set number of 90 minute work sessions (or time blocks), usually 2 or 3 depending on workload, and I can start these time blocks whenever I choose, as long as I get them all done before I end the day.
I love the evenings, it’s my favourite time of day, but nothing kills my relaxation more than watching the clock all night knowing I have to be in bed by a certain time, so this approach gives me freedom to sleep in and take lunch whenever I want and removes that subconscious barrier that causes procrastination, and lowers productivity.
And again, there are plenty of apps and browser extensions to help you with this, but I find simply setting a 90 minute timer on my phone, and then working until it goes off, to be a simple and easy solution.
You can also break your tasks down into smaller, more specific tasks, and use each of those as a stop work goal instead of a timer.
Just find what works for you and stick to it. Your non-work life will thank you for it.
Your First Client
There are a million ways to get into the VA business and some of them require a lot more time, effort and complexity than others, so let’s just start with the basics and discuss the quickest, simplest way to get started right now.
You won’t get rich following these steps, but you’ll be laying the foundation for your future VA business and the payoff is well worth it.
Not many people can even comprehend the idea of being able to travel full time in their RV, but get these steps right and you’ll open up a whole new world of possibilities.
Ok let’s get the ball rolling.
Taking that first step is always the scariest part of any undertaking, but, thankfully, the hardest part has already been done for you, because there are hundreds of websites out there whose sole purpose is to connect VAs, such as yourself, with potential clients who are looking to pay for your RV lifestyle.
All you need to do is find one you like, create an account, login, and look for tasks that are on offer.
There’s too many of these sites to list all of them here, so we’ll just focus on the most popular one for now, as it has been around for decades and has the most amount of work on offer.
By far, one of the most popular websites for finding clients is Upwork.com
Arguably Fiverr.com is just as popular, if not more, but Fiverr is very crowded with people who are willing to do jobs for only 5 dollars… hence the name of their website.
Fiverr is good for people who live in countries where $5 is a decent amount of money, but seeing as this whole blog is aimed at US based readers who are interested in one of the most expensive hobbies on the planet (ie. RVs), then we’ll just focus on Upwork for now, as they have a much higher paying clientele.
Yes, you can charge more than $5 on Fiverr, and most people do, but think about the people who go there to have work done… they go there in the hopes of only paying $5. Is that the kind of client you want to attract? I’d rather deal with clients who understand the value of the service you provide and are willing to pay for it.
That being said, let’s get something out of the way before we continue…
We are not affiliated with Upwork at all. We don’t earn any commissions by referring anyone to them, or anything like that. I just chose them for the purposes of demonstrating the process of getting started building your VA business.
Also… this is by no means a get-rich-quick scheme. The following steps are designed to help you gain the experience and practice you’ll need to lay the foundation for building your own private VA business where you get to choose who you work for and when.
But as with anything, you need to start somewhere, so let’s begin…
Ok, first things first, let’s create an account on Upwork.
Go to upwork.com and look for the “sign up” button. Once you click it you’ll be asked whether you’re a “client, hiring for a project” or a “freelancer, looking for work”…
You’re a freelancer looking for work, so tick the appropriate box and follow the instructions inside.
We won’t go over every single step of the sign up process here because if this part is too difficult for you, then, at the risk of sounding cheeky, VA work is probably not going to be your thing.
Because you’re starting with a fresh account, you won’t initially have as much appeal, to potential clients, as someone who’s already completed dozens of jobs, so you’ll need to “season” your account.
This just means, you’ll need to take some low paying jobs to begin with, so that you can build your numbers up and start attracting higher paid gigs.
So in this step, you’ll just be scrolling through all the jobs under “Jobs you might like”. Leave it set to “Best Matches” so the system can find clients who are looking for work that matches what you entered during the sign up process.
Read through each one to not only look for something you think you could do, but also to just get an idea of what people are looking for and maybe spot some trends or patterns that can give you ideas for other skills you might wanna learn and add to your skillset.
Applying for contracts
At this stage, just apply for everything that even remotely seems like something you can do. It will feel wrong at first, but there’s a couple reasons to do it this way:
Firstly, it’s a numbers game in the beginning. The more contracts you apply for, the more chances you have of being accepted and getting that first job added to your portfolio. Building your portfolio is the main goal for now.
Secondly, by just applying for everything, and getting plenty of rejections, you will very quickly get over any fear you may have of hitting that “apply” button.
You may be one of the lucky ones who doesn’t mind that sort of thing, but it’s a very common fear, and is very similar to picking up the phone to make a cold call.
Sometimes that phone feels like it weighs a ton and you just don’t wanna pick it up. But after you get that first one done and out of the way, the next one is 100 times easier… and the next is even easier again, etc.
So start clicking that “apply” button.
You will find the rates on offer are quite low in general, and at the beginning you will be wanting to bid quite low too.
This feels very wrong at first too, but bidding low just means you’ll get accepted for more jobs, and for now, you just gotta get your feet wet.
As well as building your portfolio, you just wanna get some jobs under your belt quickly so you can get used to working from your RV, or wherever you’ve chosen to have your office, and get the feel for what it’s going to be like and how your new schedule feels, etc.
If you come across jobs that you are not familiar with or you don’t know how to do, then just remember this one thing…
Youtube is your friend!
When I was first starting out, I didn’t even know what “data entry” was. But after a few searches on Youtube, I had a good understanding of what it is and was able to add it to my repertoire.
These days, you also have AI programs like ChatGPT, that are extremely useful for this very thing (always cross check with other resources for accuracy though).
If you don’t know what a task is, or what it requires, then just get online and look it up. There are millions of tutorials on the internet for just about anything you can imagine, so don’t be afraid to use them.
Similarly, if you’re having trouble navigating or understanding Upwork itself, or whatever freelance site you’ve chosen, then the same applies.
Look stuff up online!
You can even learn whole new skills this way, as I did above, which can then be added to your repertoire, making you a more appealing choice for potential clients.
If you’re starting with upwork, then I may aswell throw in the link to their Youtube channel. It’s a goldmine of tutorials and helpful info.
Doing the work
Ok, so you’ve landed your first client on Upwork… Heck! What do I do now?
Well, first thing’s first… raise one hand in the air and hold your palm out. Now take the other hand and give yourself a high five!
This is the part I have the most trouble with because I’m 99% sure I have a bit of A.D.D. and I struggle to focus on one thing for more than a few minutes.
Everyone is different, and some of this comes back to what we already covered in “Privacy & Distractions” several paragraphs back, and a lot of it comes down to your own personal experience and how you manage your own productivity.
But just remember to keep your work hours separate from your personal time, if for no other reason than billing and invoicing purposes.
Some jobs will pay per hour, so you’ll need to log your hours and in some cases, show proof, whereas some jobs will just pay a fixed amount regardless of how quickly you get it done, as long as you get it done.
There are a whole bunch of apps online to help you do this, so I won’t list them all here. But just get on Google, or your preferred search engine, and look for apps that log and track your work hours.
There’s plenty of free ones to get things moving so just have a play around and see what works for you.
If you’re easily distracted by noise, like I am, then I highly recommend using an online noise generator and playing it through some earphones.
I’ve tried blocking out all sound with ear plugs before, and it’s almost impossible. But masking the annoying sounds with a noise generator is very easy and super effective.
Noise generators allow you to choose whatever kind of sounds you want to use as background noise, while drowning out all the annoying ones you don’t wanna hear.
So for me, I like to have some kind of binaural beat playing, set to a frequency that helps with focus. Then on top of that, I like to have some relaxing sounds like beach sounds, forest sounds, thunder storms, wind chimes, etc.
Everyone’s different, so have a look around and experiment with different sounds.
At the moment, I can hear someone’s radio playing some awful music that is making it really hard for me to focus on writing this post, so I’m using some loud ocean waves and Port Town sounds, like seagulls and fishing boat engines, etc. to try and drown out the distracting music.
It still means I don’t have silence, but at least I don’t have to listen to some sickeningly rich multi-millionaire popstar whining about how hard their life is.
Like I said… everyone’s different… and maybe I’m just a little bit more “different” than others… haha.
Again, there are plenty of noise generators out there, but I can highly recommend one if you wanna save some time. I use https://mynoise.net/
I’m not affiliated or sponsored by them at all. I just really love the product and it has changed my life.
Client relationship management
I’m not talking about the software commonly known as CRM… I’m talking about your actual relationship with your clients.
Communication is key here.
If you have any questions for them, or if you don’t understand something they need from you, don’t hesitate to just ask them. The more info you can get from them, the easier your job will be.
Don’t let too much time pass without some kind of communication with them, as some clients may start wondering if you’ve abandoned the task or disappeared or whatever.
If it’s a quick and easy job, then all is well, but just be aware of how much time has passed since they last heard from you so that they don’t start to worry.
Ok, so you’ve just completed your first task for your first client. Time to give yourself another high five.
There’s 3 things I wanna mention on this point:
Once you’ve submitted your finished work, sites like Upwork usually have some sort of rating system, much the same as Uber or Ebay, etc. but what’s more important than the rating system, in the early stages, is to personally ask the client for any personal feedback, opinions, or advice they may have for you going forward.
Find out if there’s anything you could do differently in the future, but also find out if there’s anything they really liked about your work too.
It’s important to know both sides of the story no matter how painful it may feel.
If they respond with some comments or opinions that you feel are negative, resist the urge to argue back or prove them wrong. You just wanna know what their thoughts are for now.
Instead, just ask them how you could fix that issue or improve on it next time, etc.
Every bit of feedback helps in the beginning. It’s how you learn the ropes and how you will constantly improve.
The 2nd thing I wanna mention here is to make sure you ask them if they have anything else they need doing.
I know this sounds a bit obvious, but it’s very easy to just finish up the job and go back to the job listings to find your next client, leaving a lot of money on the table in the process.
Think of it as the VA equivalent to asking “Would you like fries with that?”
It’s such a simple tactic (aka upsell), but if massive companies like McDonalds are using it then you know it must be working.
Any successful business owner will tell you that it’s easier to sell more products to your existing customers than it is to try and find new customers to sell to.
So always go for the “upsell”.
But don’t ask a “yes or no” question… eg. “Is there anything else you need done?”
It’s too easy for them to just say “No” if they can’t think of anything on the spot.
Instead, word your question in a way that makes them have to think of something to say… eg. “What are some other jobs you need doing that I can take care of for you?”
This makes them instantly start thinking about what’s on their plate, and can sometimes help jog their memory about something they’ve been procrastinating on, and suddenly they realize they can just palm it off to you.
Those are the kind of jobs that will keep you in business forever.
The 3rd thing I highly recommend asking your clients when you’ve finished a job, and they’re happy with your work, is…
“If you have any friends or colleagues that need work done, what’s the best way for me to contact them?”
Notice again how it’s not a “yes or no” question? It forces them to think about an actual response and removes the option to just brush you off with a “No, sorry.”
It’s another very simple tactic, but again, it has been time tested and proven to be a very profitable one and is based on psychological principles.
There are entire businesses that thrive purely on referrals and never even need to spend a dime on advertising, so make good use of this knowledge whenever you can.
The above steps should help you get the ball rolling and gain the experience and practice you need for when the time comes to start building your own private VA business.
Once you get to that point, you will be well on your way to being able to do your own advertising and finding your own clients and start charging some real money.
But there just isn’t enough time or space here to go into that stage of the process and to give it the attention it deserves, but if you’re intrigued by what you’ve learnt so far and you are serious about the idea of working as a VA to help fund your own adventures, and you really want some more info on how to actually create an income doing so, then I’m going to highly recommend a 100% free resource that I believe will change your life.
This free resource comes in the form of a downloadable ebook, by someone who is not only a VA Coach and VA Recruiter, but she is also the founder of one of the largest and longest running VA training platforms on the planet.
Her name is Hannah Dixon and her ebook is called the Beginners Guide To Virtual Assistance and you can download it HERE.
- Affiliate disclaimer: Hannah does offer a paid training course somewhere on her website, of which we are affiliates. This just means that if you purchase anything from her, she will pay us a small referral fee. This does not affect your purchase or anything at all on your end.
Having traveled herself, for 14 years now, Hannah has trained well over 16,000 VAs (who all started out exactly where you are right now) and she even provides a recruitment service that matches up VAs with clients needing work done.
As well as her free downloadable ebook, Hannah regularly hosts a “5 Day VA Challenge” which is a live training program designed to get you up and running with your first client within 5 days. At the time of writing this, there’s currently one in progress but you might be able to jump in and catch up on the replays if you wanna get started right away.
You can join her 5 Day VA Challenge HERE
Well, congratulations on making it this far. I really hope you learned enough to get the ball rolling and to be able to start living the full time RV lifestyle. Something we are very passionate about ourselves.
Best of luck in your endeavours and feel free to contact us with any questions or comments.
