On social media, you’ve probably seen numerous people talk about become a VA, work-from-home, make your own schedule and if you’re anything like me I said what is that? VA’s have become increasingly popular, because you can work anywhere in the world with these jobs.

A Virtual Assistant offers administrative support for a business, usually part-time. They can do tasks that an executive assistant would typically handle, such as scheduling appointments, making phone calls, arranging travel, or organizing emails. During the pandemic, these roles and responsibilities expanded due to people working from home. 

As a Virtual Assistant, you can offer the following services:

  • Email Management
  • Calendar Management
  • Client Communication
  • Social Media Management (Creation, Positing, Scheduling and etc.)
  • Travel Arrangements
  • LinkedIn Management
  • Data Entry

A quick note: If you can do all of them great, but don’t stress yourself out. Find your niche and start letting people know you’re available to work. I highly encourage asking a family friend if they need help with their business to see if this works with your schedule and work style.
