In this episode, Cydelle is joined by two members of the Onit! Communications team, Gemma Baxter and Louise Sam. This episode is part of our VA Diaries series where we dig into the careers of Virtual Assistants who have made the transition from employed, business support roles to the heady heights of self-employment as a VA and explore how they found themselves in the online space.

Gemma Baxter, an Online Business Manager, works with a number of clients but her work with Cydelle centres on the operational and day-to-day functions of VA Agency, Onit! Communications. Louise Sam is a Wellbeing centred Virtual Assistant and shares her client-facing Associate VA insights including how her experience in wellness helps her support her clients better and how being a VA helped her to become location independent.

This episode is a great insight into the world of a VA through the eyes of those who are living, breathing and smashing it!


What you will learn in this episode:

  • Why you don’t always need to have an administrative background to be a successful Virtual Assistant
  • How a skills audit can help you to prepare to become a Virtual Assistant
  • What you need to focus on in addition to administratively servicing your clients, in order to make it as a successful VA
  • How to use networking to compliment your marketing efforts
