Just as the skills of virtual assistants vary, so does the virtual assistant salary. However, here is a breakdown of what you could earn as a virtual assistant.
Offering both freelance writing and VA services in my business has allowed me to diversify my income. This means I don’t have to worry as much if one source of income dries up unexpectedly.
Working as a VA with an entrepreneur whom you admire is also a great way to learn about the inner workings of their business while also getting paid.
But the one thing about freelancing that I absolutely hate (besides self-employment taxes) is paying PayPal fees.

After a year of working my business online, I’ve come up with a few strategies to decrease my PayPal fees. Now I’m sharing them with you so you can keep more of your money too!
