Virtual Assistant and providing services 8/18, 8/17, 8/16, 8/15

Being a virtual assistant can be a very fun and time-consuming job. Being a virtual assistant includes the roles of helping customers navigate through websites and scheduling flights, doctor's appointments, and more. The whole point of virtual assistants is that you won't have to interact with customers face to face but communicate with them through the phone or any social platform as well as in-built chat options which is the most popular among amazon and eccomerce websites where they have in-built chat for people who need customer service. A person that provides services also does the same type of work except it's more of you do specific tasks for a one-time payment, for example, editing a video for a customer and getting a one-time payment. The more you do the more you make.

Daily log for 7/18 and 7/19 building portfolio, getting clients and reputation.

Today I learned the process to build your portfolio in the video editing industry.

Making a business card can also help to attract clients because you can offer them to small companies at conventions and events. Offering your service at significantly lower prices or for free can start building a reputation and gain you referrals in which you can potentially start charging people a price for your work. Building a reputation is about how trustworthy you are and most importantly how well you are known. Always asking for your client's budget is a good way to show that you know what you are doing as a video editor.

Video editing and The basics of Robinhood stocks

I learned the basics of Robinhood. Which is an app that allows you to invest money into stocks and potentially make a prophet out of it. For example, buying a share of Tesla or a fraction of a share since Tesla stocks can cost a huge amount for a lot of beginner investors ($700). And then waiting for the long term for the share price to potentially increase and selling it for an extra prophet. On the other hand, video editing and how films are made to look pleasing to their viewers. There are a lot of ways to edit videos. Animation, Realistic graphics, infographics. These areas of expertise can pay a lot of money. Doing advanced edits for people and or animations can bring in thousands of dollars per edit. There are a lot of rules to editing such as being more thoughtful of what the person wants rather than what you want in the video as the editor. What the editor wants is sometimes not something the director or owner of the film wants to implement in it.

Trading options and strategies

I learned a lot of things today including mostly on trading options which are really similar to stocks but also slightly different at the same time. Buying an option strike price is the same thing as buying a stock share of the company. However, an option has an expiration date in which by the time of the date if the stock price of the company increases you can buy 100 shares of the company with the initial option strike price you placed in the beginning, therefore, making a profit by selling the stocks that you have bought with the initial lower strike price. The opposite can also happen when the stock price lowers more than the initial strike price and your option becomes worthless. I did many quizzes on stocks and passed.

Trading cryptocurrency and various forms of trade (Forex, Reits) as well as risks involved.

Today was a review to improve all my quiz scores. I learned the differences between stocks and cryptocurrency. Crypto seems to be more of a value of money that is bought in shares by people and then kept for a long time until its value rises and then sell it or for people like scalpers which is a new method its basically buying the share and selling it as soon as a slight increase in value occurs. Forex is the biggest currency trade platform in the world where the currency is being traded for a prophet. For example, buying one currency and then trading it for another if its value is higher. Or REITs (real estate investment trusts a way to sell and buy real estate without actually buying the physical property but using it as stocks to achieve pretty much the same goal as actual real estate owners. Basically in the form of online value. Cryptocurrency is more volatile and therefore has more risks of losing money however this also means you can make a lot of money really fast if you are lucky or have knowledge of how to go about the process. Stocks can be more stable with really professional companies like apple or tesla.

Stock investment and Entrepreneurship

There are several ways to make money through businesses self-made and or investing into already established businesses with stocks and shares of the company. You can buy a share or a fraction of a share of a company and sell it for more when the price increases. However, with profit can come loss. The company can go bankrupt and your bought shares will all go down to 0. I have learned that investing in professional and well-developed companies that have been going on for years are the safest places to invest. Types of stock investments include day trading where the person does not have to store shares in a company for a long period but does small trades throughout the day, for example, buying a share and then selling it right away for a small amount of profit. Stock prices can fluctuate throughout the day with smaller companies. Anyways, I learned that investing in stocks can make you a lot of money if done smartly and patience is a factor.
