There is no doubt that working as a Virtual Assistant has its benefits and drawbacks. Nowadays, many are shifting to this line of work because of the pandemic and the convenience it provides.
Imagine working from home, not having to stress out over commuting to work or even dressing up for it, wouldn’t that be awesome? Kidding aside though, being a virtual assistant has changed many people’s lives for the better by giving them more freedom in their career, having more time with their family and hobbies while earning more.

The benefit of having the freedom to choose where to work and whom to work with drove Micah to decide to be a Virtual Assistant.

On top of it all, being able to do what you are passionate about at a paid rate that reflects your skills and worth is a fulfilling journey.
Benefits of Working from Home
Just like business owners getting the benefits of having a VA (Virtual Assistant) in their business, Virtual Assistants also reap the advantage of working from home.
One of these benefits is being able to be with the family ALL THE TIME. Micah is enjoying this benefit, same as every Virtual Assistant. Having flexibility and time in your hands is a great motivator in the quality and efficiency of your work. To add to that, the hassle of going through heavy traffic to go to work is eliminated, hence you have more time, and you can save money.

Being in the Virtual Assistance industry opens you to vast opportunities for upscaling your skills. Often, VAs pursue their passions once becoming a VA, something most have difficulty doing in a regular work setup.

After being able to start a career working from home as a Virtual Assistant, Micah has started appreciating the freedom and flexibility of being one.
“It’s how I can stay creative, flexible with my workday, and have a work/live balance on my terms. It keeps me nimble without feeling trapped by a dull routine and boredom. Being a VA demands that I think outside the box, and I am continually inspired by what my clients are doing with their passion. And it’s cool to be a part of that and support them in ways that make a difference.”
