Have you ever wondered what life of a Virtual Assistant is like? Here's a “day in the life” written by myself.
The life of a Virtual Assistant (VA) can be lonely and overwhelming at times. With all the work to be done at home trying to get it out the door, it can leave little time for self-discovery.
The average day of a virtual assistant is pretty varied. Some days are spent entirely on administrative support: answering emails and phone calls, scheduling meetings, creating presentations and so on. Other days might primarily involve an online research project, or managing a company's social media presence.
The amount of time you can devote to your virtual assistant business will determine how successful you are. It's important to keep in mind that you'll need time for the initial setup (marketing yourself, finding clients and so on), as well as for performing the actual work.
