What’s the best part of working from home?
No need to travel to and from work! You can save a lot of time, energy and money that you can dedicate to other things to live your life to the fullest.
I currently work as a Virtual Assistant in the evening during weekdays and do events hosting during the weekends and sometimes during the daytime of weekdays. I can do and have the best of both worlds.
Is there really a career in being a Virtual Assistant?
Do you wanna know what was my motivation before I thought about working home-based? A former BPO manager once told me there’s no career in working home based. I begged to disagree and told that person, “Watch me.”. 3 years have passed and I’m still here! And I guess I’m a living testament that it’s really possible.
What’s the most important thing you’ve learned all throughout your career as a Virtual Assistant?
Self-reliance. At the end of the day, you will learn a great deal of self-reliance in being a Virtual Assistant. I figure out thing mostly on my own, read a lot and scour my resources to get answers and in the long run, saw myself accomplishing plenty of tasks and getting better at it every day. This helps your sense of responsibility without always depending on others.
What words of wisdom can you give any aspiring Virtual Assistants out there?
Find your motivation. You need to immerse yourself in the nature of the job and gauge your motivation to succeed.
You need to invest time to read, research and prepare for the job you’re seeking as a Virtual Assistant. It pays to know a lot to be able to do a lot.
ALWAYS have a VERY reliable internet connection! It’s always the best option to go for the best subscription.
