What Jobs Are The Easiest To Transition Into A Virtual Career?

Sep 22, 2020

As the summer of 2020 draws to a close, we watch new skyrocketing cases of COVID-19 sweep across the U.S. People everywhere are holding their breath.

We all wait for the other shoe to drop. We ask ourselves, “What are we in for next?”

While physical health and safety are at the forefront of most of our minds, I’m willing to bet on what the next worry in line is...

 -Employment/ Jobs.

-Finances/Paying bills.

-Keeping the lights on.

I imagine that educators and teachers are wondering if they want to go back to school and potentially get the virus. Or is it time for a career change.

People working in the hotel and travel industries are wondering what to do as the hotel chains, airlines, and airports aren’t returning to business-as-usual.

Others, whose work relied to some extent on a physical location, like:

-a physical office for administrative assistants and office managers to run

-convention centers for live event planners to set up

How to Create a New Path with a Successful Virtual Assistant Business

Sep 03, 2020

by 

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

If you’re like me, you often think about your life and if you’re on the right path. Perhaps the more important question to ponder is: Where do you want your path to lead?

Right now, you have two choices:

1) maintain the status quo and end up in the same place you are right now, or
2) create a new path that opens a world of possibilities.

 

The first option is easy. You simply do nothing. Yes, doing nothing is an option and a choice. You don’t have to make any changes. Yet, what are the pitfalls? What are you compromising?

If you’re happy where you are in life, then the first option might be right for you. If you’re not happy, not fulfilled, not earning as much as you’d like, let’s examine choice #2.


The second option is a bit more difficult. It provokes those uncomfortable...
