I usually leave my cameras at home whenever I attend seminars and workshops. This is for me to focus on the purpose of acquiring all the maximum knowledge that I could accumulate.
Yesterday’s #VApreneur workshop held at Bluefin Grill, Metrowalk is one of the good fortunes that I can be able to attenf to when time and opportunity is on my side. I’m glad that my blog mentor, MJ Gonzales, dragged me to this event that eventually lead me to the answers of some questions I have in my mind regarding important career matters. I would also like to thank Also, thanks to Jen and Ms. Sherlane for this opportunity.
What happened at the VApreneur Road Tour Project?
For me, all we need is an open mind when attending workshops. It’s either you’re willing to learn more or you’re open to entertain new things from something highly valuable.
The VApreneur workshop promoted women empowerment and is advocated and facilitated by Ms. Rochefel Rivera (Online Business Consultant / VApreneur Coach / professionalvas), Sherlane Fortunado (Social Media Strategist / Blogger / Fortunate Online Solutions), Bernice Biong (Strategic Communications Consultant / WhiteHat Copy), Maria Cristina Pre (Virtual Assistant – Writer / Athena Online PH) and Mychele Chrystienne Tan Remonte (Event Organizer / MYX’d Media).
Going beyond the textbook is one of the best ways to learn. And at #Vapreneur, encouraged to invest in our skills — skills set matters.
“VAs should not be priced based on location but on skills and work value,” tells Rochefel Rivera from that very enlightening talk.
To further promote her advocacy, Roche started the Professionalvas-academy.com to train and be a coach to new and aspiring VAs. She also partnered with Sheila J. Davis in bringing leapfrogVAnetworkPH.com here in the Philippines to connect VAs and their ideal clients.
By its true definition, virtual assistants (typically abbreviated to VAs and also called virtual office assistants) is generally self-employed individuals who remotely provide professional administrative, technical, or creative (social) service(s) to clients from their home offices.
The VApreneur empowers existing and aspiring VAs to compete in the global market and fuel their businesses and professional careers for aspiring and current VAs right in the comfort of their homes.
“My vision became very clear, to partner and help as many stay-at-home individuals to build and grow their dream business while they take care of their families and enjoy both worlds through his virtual assistant business,” adds Rochefel. We were taught to leverage with skills, a wide variety of skills set,worthy to various professionals who need assistance to tasks that they may not handle.

- How to find clients anywhere in the world
