    How to get clients?

    Like Janine said above, look into subcontracting for other VAs. You'll learn which work schedule fits you, which tools/programs that you're good at, and gain experience. Also, if the VA loves your subcontracting work, they'll probably refer you to other VAs and clients!

    My website is up!

    Your website is taking quite a bit of time to load on my laptop. I have Windows 8. I'm not able to see any graphics on it, just the text as it's still loading. You may want to have people test it to see if it has a loading issue.

    What's the best way to organize and schedule daily/ weekly repeating tasks?

    I try to make out a weekly schedule for myself. I try to get my clients to specify which days and time frames that they need me to work on their projects/tasks (if its a priority project etc). If the project/tasks are not urgent then I ask my clients if I can pencil them in on a slow day. I...

    Do you refer to yourself as a 'Virtual Assistant'?

    I do use the term "virtual assistant" but I also make sure in my communications with future and current clients that I define my skill sets and services. I think however that using the term "virtual admin assistant" would be more appropriate for me. I may change to that in the near future.
