Finding someone to work for you virtually is a daunting task. How do you know this person is who they say they are? I know I’m on the opposite side, but I I try to be as transparent as possible so potential clients get a good feel for my personality and my skills before I complete my first task for them.

I’ve also found that it’s good for both the client and the VA to work together for a short period of time or on a few projects before a more long-term offer is made. You want to make sure your potential VA lives up to his or her claims. Your VA needs to make sure they’re comfortable working for you. If there is tension or anyone is uncomfortable right at the start, chances are, you are not a good match.

If you are considering becoming a VA yourself, you want to make sure you possess the following traits to ensure you are being the best VA you can possibly be.
