“Honey, can you give me 2 hours to work and we will play again, okay?” This maybe what a Virtual Assistant Mom tells her 4year old daughter… Cool huh!

Are you still wondering if virtual work environment is for you? Let me give you a glimpse of what a Virtual Assistant’s day is like – and be the one to judge.

This is a schedule of a VA-friend who happens to be a mother also.

7am – She will have breakfast with daughter and husband. Fixed her daughter and sends her to school.

10am – After the coast is clear (lol), husband is at work, daughter is at school, she will start working for 4 hours as a SEO Specialist. She may take a break to have her lunch or have it after her shift.

2pm – Daughter will arrive and attends to her. Play and even takes a nap with her.

4pm – This is what she calls, ‘daughter time’. An uninterrupted 3 hours of play, stories, tv, swimming or whatever they would want to do.

7pm – Dinner with the whole family. Dad arrives from work, chat about the day for all of them.

8pm – Tucks daughter to sleep, kiss dad goodnight.

9pm – Work for another hour for a Data Mining project.

You can see in her schedule that she has about 6 hours work as a VA and yet it does not interfere with her “Mommy Duties”.

Being a Virtual Assistant can make you go places – you can go to Sydney, Paris, New York, Malaysia… virtually. You get to talk to different types of people from different cultures. You can learn from them and they can also learn from you. And with all of these incentives, the biggest one is that – you get to work at home, with your kid by your side, and earn a little extra for the family.
Where to start looking for a VA job? There are more outsourcing companies out there, oDesk, Elance, LimeExchange, and even Craiglist. There are limitless opportunities for you – you just have to make the first step.

Come, join us, Mommy. Be one of us!

Be happy… and be successful,
