“Dreams Don’t Work, Unless You Do”
The world of the internet is getting wider nowadays. Here we can sell our products, advertise our business and at the same time, we can find jobs. Many jobs were created online, especially when the pandemic hit the world, many people lost their jobs, and many businesses closed their stores.
We were fortunate to have access to the internet when the pandemic hit. People can still do their business online. Many people convert their corporate jobs to virtual assistants. There are a lot of people today who want to work from home. Why? Because it’s more convenient, they can be with their family while working and can avoid being infected by this virus.
No more early waking up in the morning
Many workers hate to wake up in the morning and the only reason is to avoid traffic. In the Philippines, if you work in the city, expect heavy traffic especially in rush hour, unlike if you are only working at your home, once you wake up, you can just open your PC/Laptop and start working.
Flexible working hours/place
Working online is one of the most promising ways to have a better life. You can work whenever and wherever you want as long as you have your laptop and internet. You can balance your personal life and your work.
What people love about working online or being a virtual assistant is having a chance to start their own business even though they are not college graduates. This is as long as you know how to use your laptop and other apps that are needed for a virtual assistant.
Can take multiple clients
Many virtual assistants nowadays have multiple clients. Why? Because they already have experience in the virtual world. Another reason is to increase savings. But remember health is wealth. Always prioritize yourself or your health before anything else. No matter how rich you are, if your health is poor, you cannot still enjoy your wealth while lying in the hospital.
As I read some of the testimonials of other virtual assistants, they say they are blessed because they learned how to do business from their clients. Now, many of them are successful with their business and still working as a VA.
More quality time with family
This is one of the reasons why a lot of people, especially Moms, want to work from home so that they can take care of their children while working.
Long hours of sitting in front of your computer may affect your overall health. Many virtual assistants don’t have time to exercise, they eat more unhealthy foods like fast food or to-go food so that it’s easy for them to eat while working.
No personal social interaction.
Nowadays, many VAs prefer to stay at home after their shift. They don’t have time to go outside and meet their friends or family to have some fun.
Working all day long in front of the computer may affect the quality of your eyesight. Therefore, do not abuse your eyes and take a rest.
Being always exposed to radiation may affect our health as well. Doctors say that it may cause cancer or other diseases.
With the internet booming, working online has become the trend for this generation. It helps our economy as well because the salary is in dollars. Many people today want to become VAs because it’s more convenient. If people are not updated, especially in the internet world, it will be difficult for them to keep up with the trend. If you are a businessman, you should know the trends today so that it will be easy for you and for your business to generate sales.
You can get many benefits if you choose to be a VA, but of course, there are also disadvantages. So you need to be very careful in all things. Remember, we can earn money anytime but you only have one life and once it is over, there is no turning back.
