There are lots of questions and buzz around the net on becoming a Virtual Assistant and you are probably intrigued with this kind of job. As I try to converse with people whom I know, many of them are skeptics about getting a job online. I cannot blame them because obviously, there are lots of scams online.
But is working online really possible? Can you really earn a decent income working online?
This was also my very first question when I started working online. I don’t know if my ventures will work, and if there is really a job, or if I can be hired. Is there really a person interested hiring someone to work for her whom she doesn’t know and never met. All these doubts where answered when I stepped out of my shell and start upgrading myself with the skills I need.
But before we go to the skills development, let me give you a good glance of what kind of life I have now “after” I become a professional VA.
Work pressure is much lesser. Of course there is a pressure, all kinds of jobs has a pressure. But the huge difference is that it is much lesser compared to the pressure that you get from your office. You don’t see your boss, you don’t see the time clock, and no one stops you for taking a nap.
Huge savings from personal expenses. You don’t have to spend for your fare going to your office. How much is your monthly expense for your fare going to your jobs? When you are a VA, your only expense is your connection and a small portion of your monthly electric bill.
More time for the family. When I was working, I spend about 4-6 hours of travel time in a day just to go to our office. Why rob a time for your family if you can actually give those time for them?
Earn unlimited income. Your income will always depend on your skills and how much you work. The good thing is, these two factors are workable and can easily be upgraded. And this is why we created VirtualAssitantAcademy.Org.
Support my ministry. In many ways, now that I am getting something for a living, I am able now to help and support my ministry. Just like Apostle Paul, I am not a kind of person who wants to burden others to support my ministry. If I can work for it, the better.
Buy my wants. Before, I cannot buy the shoes that I want, I cannot buy the cellphone that I want, and I cannot eat the food that I want. Now, I can buy the shoes that I want and all other things that are a little bit more than a need.
Support my parents. It hurts to see myself whenever I see my parents who are in need of medicine but I cannot give even a small amount of money. But now, I am able to give them something, at least for the support for their medicine. Not to mention that I can now treat them out for a nice lunch.
Help other people. It is difficult to say no to someone who is asking for your help. But what can you give if what you are earning is just enough for your family? My VA job gave me a lot of reasons to help and extend to the needy.
There are lots of things that happened in my life when I started working as a freelance VA online. And I believe that you can do what I do. I am not a computer graduate. The only thing that I did is I upgraded my skills. I gave time to learn what I need to learn. In this kind of job, you don’t even need to become a college graduate just to get a decent job order.
If it changed my life, it can also change your life for sure. If you want to experience the things that I am experiencing right now, then why not enroll yourself and start upgrading your skills? In just a month, your skill is already enough for you to close a good deal for a job.
