Because of the pandemic, many people lose their jobs. Businesses streamlined operations or, worse totally closed their commerce. However, some businesses changed their employees’ work set up for them to continue working and for their business to operate. Some people are lucky enough to start working from home even before the pandemic happened.
The pandemic made a huge toll on everyone, indeed. This new normal has surely changed our lives in a drastic manner ー and we have no choice but to cope. There were several unorthodoxies we needed to live with (or unlive with) when the lockdown began. From flashing those dresses and shoes when going to the office, to worrying about how to pay the bills! (Real talk!), name it.
For us to get by, we need to rise to the occasion. There are still ways on how we can earn money for our needs. There are lots of options on the internet on how to get permanent work from home job. One of those is to become a virtual assistant.
Virtual Assistants are people who do things for entrepreneurs virtually. Some of the things that they do is managing their clients’ schedule, answering calls and emails, marketing, lead management, and more!
To know more about how to become a virtual assistant, we gather this information for you.
Especially if you have no experience being a VA, you need to remember who you are and who you were. Yes, you need to go down memory lane and remember all the jobs you did in the past and the skills you learned. To give you an idea, some of the tasks of being a VA are as follows:
You need a quiet and comfortable corner in your house, with a plain background for that matter, and you need to invest in these: an efficient laptop, a reliable internet connection, a noise-canceling headset, and a back-up system if your main system fails.
As Misty Copeland once said, “Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.”
Having people who have expertise in the industry is an immense influence on your success in becoming a VA, especially if it will be your first time. The VA Hub is one of those virtual assistant companies that helps people who want to start working from home. We offer FREE Real Estate and Marketing training that can help you hone the skills you need to perform your tasks.
People can only do so much for you. The best person to help yourself is YOU. People can guide you, but it is still up to you to determine your fate. Exerting more efforts in preparation for client interviews is very much advisable. Start to like talking to yourself and practice all the possible questions during an interview. Most importantly, stay calm and confident.
This is your make or break. It’s an interminable culmination for as long as you want to work as a VA. Being hired is just the beginning of your journey. So stick to your promises to your client during your interview that you will make his/her career life easier.
If you will ask me what are the attributes needed to flourish in this career, definitely, resourcefulness, great discipline, and your genuine desire to reach your client’s business goals. If you have those, then get the ball rolling!
