I thought as a process for me to examine my business and the needs of it, as well as to start my first “series” of blog posts, I would uncover some of the advantages I enjoy as a Virtual Assistant. Let’s begin with the most important part – “I love the flexibility that I can work anywhere!”
When I am home – I will work in various places in my house to add a lil variety. I get bored with my surroundings at times – I love having a wireless connection!
Now that summer is here, I wanted to get away. I have not been home (Chicago) for over a month. Since mid-June I have been in Tennessee, Atlanta, Chicago, and North Carolina. Did I mention, I don’t mind driving – all of the travel thus far has been by car. Next week, I will be traveling to Los Angeles (flying).
When I plan to travel I always check a few things first:
I am blessed to have supportive friends and family. Many are amazed and proud that I am still in this business and independent. Those that have known me for a while – remember me as a corporate person in management, working my buns off and having more time to hang out. They also know my integrity in ensuring that whatever I do, I will do my best. Most importantly, they have been supportive when I say I cannot go, or I’ll call you back because I am trying to get some work done.
I am single and my daughter is grown – so why should I just stay home and work when I can move around, have fun, spend time with loved ones and make money….You cannot beat that!!!
