ccording to the International Virtual Assistants Association, a virtual assistant is "an independent entrepreneur providing administrative, creative and/or technical services." In other words, virtual assistants provide what used to be called secretarial services or office-support services, and arguably carry more prestige. Virtual assistants work from home and perform a wide variety of tasks, including word processing, desktop publishing, transcribing, editing and proofreading, business writing, office managing and organization consulting, preparing spreadsheets or databases, maintaining contact-management programs, bookkeeping, billing, providing notary services, graphic designing, doing multimedia presentations, offering answering services, preparing mail, writing resumes, designing websites, and doing research.

If you're thinking of this money making idea as a home based business, you'll need to invest in a computer and the software suite that best suits your work needs. Since you'll be online a lot, it will probably make sense to get some sort of broadband service so that you're always connected to the net. That way, you can work almost any time of the day. One way of going into this on a bigger scale is to hire other virtual assistants. That way, you can operate as a virtual secretarial pool and get bigger assignments or contracts.
