My journey

Hi, I’m Donna, Co-Founder and mainly your Chief Happiness Officer in VAJobs. I started on my own as a writer in oDesk (now Upwork) back in 2009. I knew where to go because someone told me. However, no one was there to guide me on how to take care of my career and how to attract clients.

It was all of me from the start, and yet I was fortunate to have a wonderful client who became my mentor for many years.

For newcomers, very few are lucky enough to get such an opportunity. The Alpha Team has created a workshop that will cover all the basics that you need to know on how to jumpstart your career. During the course you’ll learn:

  • What being a virtual assistant is all about
  • Requirements to start your journey
  • The tools that you need to learn
  • How to get clients even without experience
  • How to write attractive cover letters to land interviews

Plus more. Nothing beats having someone to guide you on your journey. For those are at a loss on how to start the trip, this will be an opportunity that can help you visualize your path.

See you at the Alpha VA Training Workshop!
