This is a new way of working. Geographical locations do not matter anymore. So let’s get started with the 6 Reasons To Become Virtual Assistant This Year.
Make An Income You Can Live On
You can make a lot of money, working at home as a VA. Virtual assistant trade organizations reported that the average full-time VA working in the US makes about $39,452 annually. Now that is not a bad income to go home with, considering also the potentials and control you have over your business! That is the type of money you can live on, even if you are a single mom/dad or a young person.
VA Service To Grow Even Higher
Thanks to growing technology, and the fact that it’s now even much easier to source out VA work, due to the fact that businesses don’t have to pay for any benefits when they out-source. These types of service will only get bigger and more in demand, wherever you are in the world. In fact, workers from low-income economies, like African counties can benefit a lot in this type of market, even though this type of service is not yet among the regular conversations among many young people in Africa at the moment.
