Is the era of working virtually from home finally upon us?

If Twitter is closing its office doors worldwide and other tech giants like Google, Amazon, and Facebook are extending office closures until as late as the fall of 2020 (or into 2021), how many other tech companies will follow in the steps of their industry leaders?

In other sectors like insurance and finance, we’ve heard Nationwide Insurance is talking about permanent telecommuting. Capital One announced to their workers (all 40,000 of them) they would remain out of the office at least through Labor Day.

Regardless of how you feel about industry giants or the belief that they already had tons of advantages – like plenty of hardware and software already at their disposal or enough revenue in reserves to properly outfit their employees – we can’t deny that these companies could be forging the future of business that extends beyond pandemic and social-distancing times.

Why Hotel Industry Workers Make Exceptional Virtual Assistants

Oct 05, 2020

People aren’t barreling into the Holiday Inn or Hilton or Marriott right now. Travel - for any reason - is at an all-time low which is leaving hotels quiet and empty.

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...

The most opposition is often getting started.

There’s always something more entertaining than household chores. Or, if you’re grappling with the decision to become a Virtual Assistant or Virtual Expert,® you let all the risks and uncertainties be your excuse for not starting.

How to Start A Successful Virtual Assistant and Virtual Expert® Career?

Aug 06, 2020

With a “traditional” career, there’s an order of operations to accomplishing your goals. There are specific stops along the way to success. Things like college degrees or trade school certificates. You know what’s expected of you because the road to get there has been mapped out for you.

With a Virtual career, the path is less defined. That’s partly because there are so many possibilities. It’s also partly because you get to create your career doing what you love in the time frame you want — not what a boss dictates.

Being in charge of your career and destiny is exciting! It can also cause apprehension because the path feels uncertain and unpredictable.

Starting a career as a Virtual Assistant or Virtual Expert® requires a relatively small start-up cost. You don’t need a ton of space. You need zero inventory. What you do need are a few essentials including a computer, internet, and a phone. Many of those essentials you likely...
