The World of Virtual Assistants (VAs)

Nowadays, money is usually the main reason why people work. And they generally look for one which is compensating, attainable, and convenient. But the question is, what kind of work is that? How do you find such?  For this, I share with you the line of work I am in. So that you can earn money and develop skills at the same time by being a Virtual Assistant.

Virtual Assistants utilize today’s technology to deliver their services and communicate with clients by working remotely. Many businessmen today prefer to have VA’s as they are really busy most of the time and they would need someone to assist them in some parts of the business. The job would be basically handling emails, taking calls, data entry and many others as it depends on needs of the clients and the skill set of their VA.

Being a Virtual Assistant, gives you the benefit of setting your own career goals, objectives, and sometimes working hours. How great it is to work from the comfort of your own home and no need to commute. This could be a dream come true for those who have had a stressful office job. And since Virtual Assistants work remotely and most often in their own homes, they have more flexibility and freedom in managing their time. Moreover, VA’s who have children don’t have to worry about parenting as they can look after their kids while working. This makes a big difference in their family life, as they won’t feel the guilt of leaving their sick baby for work.

Continuous learning is also something that Virtual Assistants take advantage of. Some have started with no experience but because they were determined, were able to learn simple to complex tasks. There are VA’s who even take it to the next level and open their own outsourcing businesses. All it takes is a little direction and  big ambition. On the other hand, VA’s also take risks especially when looking for projects and clients over the internet, as there are online scams and frauds waiting for victims. A good way is to get connected with co-Virtual Assistants  and get referrals  from them.  And as you embrace the job, always anticipate and prepare for all possibilities that might come.
