The Virtual Entrepreneur Kid plus Tutorial on How To Install and Launch Your First Yahoo! Messenger

Just like the image below, I am only one-year-old when I first touched a computer keyboard (kidding... typewriter pa lang inabot ko noon.) I think my first computer encounter was only during my second year in high school, when the only color you can see on a computer screen is all green with a black background. I also remember the day when every time we do a printing exercise, we need to prepare because we need to type a series of script or syntax just to print the phrase "Hello World!" Those were the days. If you can relate, I can guess how old you are now. Kids are very lucky today. Photo by: Email already exists during that time but I am not lucky enough because internet connection in our school is not yet available. I’m telling you, I am not a computer geek...

Filipino Virtual Assistant: The 7 Essential Benefits (Part 1/2)

Here are the seven essential benefits of being a Filipino Virtual Assistant . 1. It will give you a better source of additional income. Being a virtual assistant can be a challenging and yet compensating job. The question I think you have right now is How much is the possible compensation? It varies. It really depends on how much you want to trade your desired income based on your set of skills. The start up is normally between $250 (P10,000) -$800 (P35,000) per-month-per-client and it will go up as I said depending on your tasks and set of skills. The best part of being a VA is that you will really decide on your own income.

Virtual Assistant Requirements - If you have an Email, You're hired!

Is there any minimum requirements in working as a VA? Before I answer this. Let's go back on how we defined VA or virtual assistant. On my previous post, I wrote that: A Virtual Assistant (typically abbreviated to VA, also called a virtual office assistant) is an entrepreneur who provides professional administrative, technical, or creative (social) assistance to clients from a home office. Doing Virtual Assistance pala is business of serving people. My question I have in mind is this...Is there a business or a work of any kind without a service? Sometimes other entity needs to declare if they are in the category of product or service business. It's true that in business we really cannot serve without a product and we cannot promote the product without doing the service, because we need to serve first... right? Well, in both case or in any business we really cannot escape the essence of providing any services or assistance to others, practically to a lot of people.
