You might be trying to decide what kind of services you want to specialize in for your Virtual Assistant business. The best advice I can give you on that is to first think about the things that you really enjoy doing, the things that you’re good at and the things that you would really love to learn more about.
Combining those three factors will really help you to continue to enjoy your business and possibly prevent you from feeling bored—or even worse, burnt out. I’ve noted a couple of Virtual Assistant specialty areas and compiled some common tasks for each category.

There you have it! This list is certainly not the be-all and end-all when it comes to specialty areas for Virtual Assistants. You can mix and match with what fits best for you and your business.
And remember what I said about how to decide on what to offer. You really want to enjoy what you’re doing and be willing to continue your education on the subject matter because, hopefully, you’ll be very busy with tons of clients who need your help!
