I'm a newbie as well. The first thing I learned is that I have to know my skill and if that's what I really want to do. After you have identified that, you may start by watching youtube videos, there is a lot to learn from there. But if you have a budget, and you really want to pursue it, try enrolling in paid training just like what I did. BVC Virtual Assistance Service
Hi, I am also new in the industry =)

There are lots of niches and available jobs that can be offered to you but you'll find more comfortability in accepting job offers when you are confident because that's innate in you already. You can enhance your skills and explore other interests if you want by enrolling in classes, attending seminars/webinars, and also, checking out forums like this. As for me, I am currently applying what I am learning like site optimization.Online Accomplice
