Imagine this: It is 7 am. Your alarm clock goes off and you smack it to put it into snooze mode. You open your eyes Cheap Demarai Gray Jersey , slowly sit up and flop your feet onto the floor. You get out of your warm bed and head to jump into the shower. You quickly get ready, climb into your car and make your way onto the freeway. The wonderful traffic is already ahead of you, so you settle in for the hour-long commute to a job you despise. Unfortunately, this is the way that most people start their day. They have no control over their time or income. They drive willingly to a job they hate for years on end just to collect a “stable” paycheck.
Now, let’s imagine a different scenario: It is 7am and your alarm goes off. You hit snooze and decide to sleep another hour. At 8am, you rise from your bed and walk over to your computer to begin your work day. You have not taken off your comfy flannel pajamas yet Cheap Danny Simpson Jersey , but your job does not require that you change into work clothing. Instead, you login to your email and start talking with your clients. You see, you run your own virtual assistant company. Businesses hire you (and your outsourced team) to handle all sorts of tasks for them remotely.
Today, you are writing some website content while your workers are handling some email campaigns for one of your clients. Yet another of your workers is answering customer service emails and phone calls for another client. You check your online banking account and see that you have made $500 this week and it is only Tuesday. Life is good as a virtual assistant, you think to yourself as you head to the kitchen for a cup of hot chocolate while watching traffic out the window in the distance.
