Going solo on a business can be a scary thought…E-Commerce, Auctions & Small Business. Deciding to become a virtual assistant can be daunting as it would mean working solo. What is exactly the job description of a virtual assistant? If taken in a traditional workplace, a virtual assistant performs the job of a personal assistant. The difference lies in the fact that instead of a real person in a real office, the virtual assistant can be located in an area far from employer/employers and communication is done through the use of different telecommunication technology such as a phone, the internet, and fax. Different employers have varying hiring standards and fitting right with all of them depends on the requirements they demand.
Oftentimes, working as a virtual assistant could be perplexing to people which could make them ask, ‘what do you do’? It lies more on the fact that you have the potential to earn big while conforming to your own work schedule right at the comfort of your home. However, it should also be noted that life as a virtual assistant is not all glamour and glitter but, rather it is about hard work, patience, learning, and perseverance in order to become successful in this field.

Becoming a virtual assistant could mean two things: setting up your own business or work like an ordinary employee. Each of these two scenarios has their own advantages and disadvantages. You may not have to invest in a business but have smaller pay and restrictions in your work hours and the manner of working if you hire yourself out as an employee. Setting out on your own means the flexibility of choosing your clients, schedule, and rates but it would also mean paying self-employment taxes, client-hunting, and building up the business. The start-up costs may be minimal with mandatory equipments such as a computer, a good internet service, a cell phone or phone line, a scanner or printer, and a business website.
Employers, organizations, and corporations have seen the cost-effectiveness of hiring a virtual assistant rather than hiring a full-time employee where they have to provide health insurance, benefits, and vacation leave. They have seen virtual assistants as ways to reach their business goals quickly and promoting their services or brand names at reduced costs.
