The EA’s Roadmap to becoming an Executive Virtual Assistant in Australia

A webinar brought to you by Thought Penny

You’ve heard about Virtual Assistants…

…but have you ever looked into become a VA yourself?

Have you ever wondered what the hype around working remotely is all about?

Have you ever considered it as a career option?

This webinar will explain how you can translate your years of corporate knowledge and executive assistant experience into your own virtual business or remote employment, providing a highly sought after, executive-level service.

We’ve been hiring virtual assistants for years, and we’ve identified a real demand for local, high-level executive assistant support… remotely.

When you find yourself wondering if there is another way to ???, a better way, you know it’s time to learn about your options.

It’s easier than you think to escape the rat race and move beyond the 9 to 5 grind!

Your 12-hour days are over ( if you want them to be! ).

  • YOU CAN be there for the important moments;
  • YOU CAN leave behind the long commutes; and
  • YOU CAN stop wanting to be in two places at the same time.

Working remotely is an attractive way to achieve work/life balance without compromising your career, your income or your family time.

This webinar is not all cafes and Instagram.

We keep it real, showing you the joys and the pitfalls of working connectedly in a dis-connected environment.

We have included real-life interviews with Australians who have made the transition successfully. They will impress you with their personal accounts of the highs and lows and the share the positive changes they have experienced along the way, including:

  • Life balance – time for meal preparation and social connection
  • Physical health – time for exercise and appointments
  • Mental health – less anxiety and guilt around competing priorities
  • Education and Upskilling – mixed opportunities leads to broader horizons
  • Stimulation – Every day is different.

The options and possibilities in the range of services you could offer are truly endless, but one thing is certain. Your years of experience, your professionalism and your high-level support is needed TODAY.

There are C-suite executives, company directors, entrepreneurs and successful startups searching for sophisticated support. There is a gap in the market you could fill
