We’re continuing our series of interviews in preparation for the launch of my first eCourse later this month. I’m so excited to talk to all these lovely ladies who have a wealth of information to share with your regarding creating and selling your own products online.
Today, we’re featuring my interview with Alyssa Avant of AlyssaAvant.com. Alyssa has been working from home and making an income online since the year 2007. She’s a pro, ladies! Alyssa offers virtual assistant services through her website and also coaches others who may be interested in becoming virtual assistants.
Alyssa is the author of the book “FaithLeaps: The Christian Mom’s Guide to Passion, Purpose and Profits“. She also recently published an eBook titled, “FaithLeaps: The Christian Mom’s Guide to Starting a Virtual Assistant Business“. This eBook is the first of a series of eBooks aimed at helping women start their own virtual assistant business. In our interview, Alyssa shares a lot about the process she followed to create her own eBooks.

Major Takeaways from the Interview:
- Alyssa shares how she first got started making money online. She began working in direct sales, then became a ghost writer. As she started learning more about online marketing, she started offering her services as a virtual assistant.
- As Alyssa gained more experience as a virtual assistant, she started teaching others her skills through instructional videos, screencasts and webinars.
- Alyssa spoke frankly of the fears that made her drag out the process of publishing her first book, and how she was able to do the second one in just a weekend.
- She also shares the process she follows in creating her products: seeking God’s vision, brainstorming, keyword research to find the market demand for her product, and bringing in others to help test and improve the end product.
- Alyssa concluded by talking about how we need not create new products from scratch every time. We only need one good idea that can be developed upon and repurposed into a variety of products.
