What does a typical day look like for a virtual assistant, or in fact any freelancer or consultant that works from home? The answer comes in various shapes, however the majority would say “extremely busy”.
Many of my friends think I have the best life and just relax all day, my parents and my partner think I am going to conquer the world and have a business to rival Virgin, (thanks parents and partner!) my clients think I work solely for them (which is not a bad perception to have), I thought by starting this venture I would have the time to go on more walks and have more time for me!
Boy, how wrong I was. I must admit that I now get to choose the time of when I do each activity and for that I feel I have complete control. I do have more time with my children, and I have the flexibility that is they are unwell, I can still work. I love the fact that I have already saved up to two hours of my time each day by not having to commute and for this I am thankful, for I would NEVER fit in what I do otherwise.
A life of a Virtual Assistant, Freelancer or Consultant is a busy one, it’s a joyous one, it’s flexible and varied, you need to be super organised to be able to do it. It’s a good job I have all these qualities and more.
