So, you want to work at home but don’t want to open a daycare or sell make-up? Good News! Let me show you how to use skills you already have to build a life you love AND be able to work at home!
Allow me to share something with you…
I want to tell you my story about how I came to be a virtual assistant – one of the best home-based careers that exist today…
It was the spring 2005 and we were stationed at Camp Pendleton in Southern California. I was absolutely loving my job as an information technology specialist, making a great salary, working out of a nice big office, and enjoying awesome benefits. I thought for sure that we would finish out my husband’s career on the West Coast with only four years left until retirement… Then, very unexpected and seemingly out of the blue, my husband got orders to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. To say that I was shocked was an understatement. But let’s face it, military wives have to learn to roll with it. I embraced the experience and adventure of moving to the other side of the country.
Everything was going pretty well and planning was a breeze. Until it came to finding a job that is. My initial research revealed that even though I had 20 years of office experience, there simply were no well-suited jobs for me. That was when my entrepreneurial spirit kicked in and I knew I could make more working for myself. I didn’t have much of a plan but I knew two things: I wanted to work from home and I wanted to have an online business.
I thought about what skills I had that others could use. Falling back on my years of working my way up from a receptionist in the 80’s, to a word processor in the 90’s, and finally a computer specialist by 1997, I had a lot to offer. I had computer expertise, people skills, and good communication. I knew how to edit a web page. I knew how to delete viruses from computers. I could do PowerPoint presentations. When I really thought about it, I had a ton of skills that online business owners who work at home and online needed.
And these business owners don’t want to pay for a full-time assistant – who wants to pay an office assistant benefits, overtime, sick pay, etc. when they can pay an independent contractor or freelancer a bit more money but without the hassle?
My online research unveiled a goldmine! I found an entire industry that is built around this concept: Virtual Assistants.
