If you’re a Virtual Assistant today, you’re probably in a better place in your life. You work from home. Clearly, you don’t miss the daily commute to work when you were a 9 to 5 office employee. You can wake up at your leisure. Of course, unless a client requires a morning routine; but otherwise you can savor your morning cup of coffee.
And you have financial independence. The gross income a Virtual Assistant earns will depend on his or her ability to manage time and negotiate rates. Many virtual assistants manage multiple clients that provide various streams of income. A Virtual Assistant can have 10 clients where 4 pay per hour while the remaining 6 pay per project.
But is it possible to earn more than you have ever dreamed of?
Apparently, there are 3 ladies who are living testimonies of the financial windfall that is possible as a Virtual Assistant.
Here are 3 Virtual Assistants who have turned their profession into an enterprise that earns in the hundreds of thousands of dollars:
