Black History Month & Virtual Assistants

Black History Month & Virtual Assistants

During Black History Month the Association of Virtual Assistants has featured several of our exceptional members, Latrice Prater, Brittany Dantzler, and Tara Spencer.


Choosing to be a virtual assistant begins with a dream. Every person’s dreams matter. What may not be widely understood is that the dreams of VAs often mean their clients have their dreams realized as well; businesses coming together to support one another and making one another’s dreams possible.


Being a VA also means you don’t feel forced to make decisions based on what is best for your employer.  Instead, choosing what is best for you. Family, friends, and lifestyle are often the inspiration to becoming a VA.


The AVA is proud to support all its members in what they want by doing the work they love from wherever they choose. You can be a great VA business owner, the best family member, and someone who paves the way for the future – all on your own terms. As Tara pointed out, you can also be a catalyst for change:


“Schedule virtual events throughout the year to ensure inclusivity at your organization, church, or social clubs where there are diverse topics and speakers come in and engage in courageous conversations.”


Each Association of Virtual Assistants member is making history and setting a new path for their lives and the lives of their families. This month’s blog series is dedicated to our African-American members and future members.


We see you. We hear you. We value you. You are an important part of history and crucial to future success.


The Association of Virtual Assistants’ mission is to become the most trusted source of information in the VA industry. We provide resources, education, and training for virtual assistants at every stage of their career, and for clients as well in a like-minded community.


Let me know when the AVA reopens membership!
