Well, hello there!
My name is Rio Jacinto, the owner of this site.
I’m happy and glad you visited my website. Now that you’re here , I want you to please seat back and take a moment to read my mini bio and learn more on how I became a Virtual Assistant.
My mini bio
I am a wife and mom to a lovely 12 year old girl. I grow up in the Philippines but moved in British Columbia, Canada way back year of 2007. My journey as a Virtual Assistant started early year of 2015. I was bored at home and thought of searching on the internet and look for work that I could do at home. Gladly, I’ve had read an articles and found a Facebook groups and joined them. Everyday, I hang-out in those groups. read posts and asked couple of questions. After 3-month of curiosity, I was able to land myself a small VA job as an encoder and internet researcher for a Food blogger in Belgium. I was happy back then because I realized that it is possible to have a part time online job. But later on, I decided to stop since I realized that I had only been working on a project basis and I don't get regular clients , plus the work pay is not even great. After I stopped my Virtual Assistant job, I continued working with my regular full time job.
However, opportunities keep on knocking on my door. It was March 2017 when I got another VA gig. But since I’m only working on simple VA tasks I felt I’m ready to move into a more techie tasks and want myself to be valuable to my clients. And so, I came to a decision to up-level my skills. Part of that decision is to enroll to a selected online and academic program that could help me learn some skills while still working at my full time job.
Those programs I enrolled myself in are Become a Pinterest VA, Blog by Number (these programs helped me learn valuable skills that I offer my clients while the second one is for me to learn how to create and launch my website) and the last one I took just last year was Digital Marketing course at Red Academy - Vancouver.
Despite being busy I have committed myself to study and set time to practice the lessons from the programs I purchased, it helped also that I have put some smart goals for myself to help me focus on my vision. That way I won't get distracted with other things that won’t be helpful for me to reach my goals. And I'm glad that after implementing my everyday goals I have learned valuable skills and I’m very happy to help my clients with my acquired skills.
If you’re a stay at home mom or a mom looking for a part time work to contribute with family finances or just wanting to change career and be a Virtual Assistant I want to tell you that you too can do what I did. Remember, I started way back 2015 and all I do was mainly encoding and it’s not even the techie side. So, If I was able to learn tech things that I never thought that I could learn then you can do it too. You just have to believe and take action.
