Right now, you have a full-time, nine-to-five job. You may be listening to that little voice in your head that says: “There are so many advantages to working from home as a Virtual Assistant. If only I could work from home, I would be so much happier.”

The idea of being able to work from home seems like a dream. You can turn it into reality by becoming a Virtual Assistant or a Virtual Expert® (VE).


Today, I’ll share with you 4 reasons why you may want to become a Virtual Expert®.


1. Your schedule is flexible.

Being a Virtual Expert® who works from home, you have the freedom to ask yourself what time of day you are inherently the most productive.

In contrast to having a face-to-face job, as a VE, you’re not controlled by the time constraints of regular business hours. You can begin work, end work, get ready for the day, or take your dog for a walk anytime you want.

You can also do activities or errands you wouldn’t have the time to do if you were constrained by regular business hours.

For example, you can take that yoga class at 9:30 am on Thursdays. You can go to your kid’s field trip or volunteer in her class. You can run your errands during the day so you don’t have to compete with the rush hour hustle and bustle.

When you work from home, the freedom is yours to schedule your workday as you see fit.


2. You get to pick your clients and the services you provide.

As a Virtual Expert®, you are the owner of your business. Therefore, you get to decide what services you provide based on what you enjoy doing.

You can start with what you’re already good at, but you also have the freedom to be a lifelong learner to expand or change the services you offer.

Additionally, you get to choose who your clients are. You can pick what business your clients are in, what type of clients you want to do business with.

You can even choose not to work for a client for any reason. Your business can be anything you want it to be.


3. You can forego professional attire.

Never cram your feet into uncomfortable shoes again. Instead, when you work from home as a Virtual Expert®, find comfort in the fact that you can complete your work wearing anything you feel comfortable in.

Your clients won’t know if you show up to work in your pajamas and slippers. Another plus: you can also save money because you don’t have to buy business attire or pay for dry cleaning


4. Your coworkers are always positive … and charming.

Often in the business world, you may find that your coworkers can be a bit overwhelming because they want to wallow in the sorrows of the world or gab incessantly about their perfect children, making you feel anxiety-ridden and annoyed.

However, when you work from home, your canine companion can sit at your feet as you work and be your ever-positive sounding board.

And, when your canine coworker senses you need a break from your work, he might charm you with those adorable eyes into taking a little stroll around the neighborhood.
