When those days get long and your bosses start to get weird, here are three things to remind yourself that you already love - or are going to love once you starting VAing - about one of the best jobs around in the virtual world:

Flexible Hours
One of the best things about working from home as a VA is that you can be where you want, pretty much when you want. If there is a school event during the day, you can usually get up earlier or work later to make up for a mid-day absence. And when the kids are sick, you definitely get less done, but you know that you can be there to take care of them.

Time with Family
When I worked in an office, I often did not get home until 6 or 7pm. I would pick up dinner on the way home and we would all scarf it down before sending the kids off to shower and bed. By the time everything calmed down, my husband and I would also be beat. My VA job has meant that our pace has slowed a little, and we are all enjoying family time now instead of barreling through it as fast as possible.

Unlimited Income
One of the best things about VAing is that if you need more money, you take another job or you expand your skill set, then you charge more. With every skill you acquire, your value rises. While this is true in most jobs, it "shows" faster as a VA because you do not have to wait on conventional promotions.

I speak from experience when I tell you that working from home as a virtual assistant is has been one of the most rewarding jobs I have ever had. You will love the freedom and the massive growth potential of this fantastic career opportunity.
