If I have heard it once, I have heard it a thousand times. “I don’t have any business experience. I don’t work outside my home. How can I start a business and attract high-paying clients?”

How to Balance Working From Home and Homeschooling

Are you longing to own a business of your very own that you can work while homeschooling your children?

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.”

Employers everywhere scrambled to send their workforce home with enough of what they needed to keep business running. So it’s understandable to ask, “Is COVID-19 the best test case for working virtually and remotely”?

I’ve watched with wonder and curiosity – How will this impact the way we do business going forward?
