Why You Need to Start A Virtual Assistant Business ASAP

Aug 19, 2022

With the pandemic (somewhat) in the rearview mirror, were you left with ideas and dreams of starting a business? When the world went remote and time slowed down, thoughts of starting online businesses swirled around women across the globe. 

You're not alone if you've been thinking about starting a business. With the possibilities entrepreneurship brings and so many business ideas to choose from, you might need a nudge to take your ideas seriously and take the first step.

Here are 3 reasons you should start a Virtual Assistant business. 

Reason 1: You can work from wherever, on your time. 

If you hate the 9 to 5 schedule and you’d rather work on your own time, an online business is perfect for you. As a Virtual Assistant, you’ll be in control of your schedule and you can create your own working hours that fit your life needs. 


Not only are you able to set your own schedule but you’re also able to set your own work bandwidth. 

Need to step away from your laptop for a few hours to make it to your daughter’s dance recital? Done. Feel like working on your patio to soak up some summer sun? Done.

Time and work freedom mean more life spent the way you want to spend it. If working in coffee shops and being a digital nomad is your dream, make that a reality. 

Reason 2: You decide how much you get paid. 

As a freelance Virtual Assistant, you become a service provider and you can set a special price for your services. That means you get to create your own pay rate! Unlike traditional unemployment where companies have a set hourly or salary wage, a Virtual Assistant business would allow you to determine how much you make. 

If you specialize in certain tasks or services, you can charge more for your work. 

Reason 3: There’s no certification required to start a Virtual Assistant business!

A Virtual Assistant career is a great entrepreneur starting point for women of all backgrounds. You don’t need a college degree or any career certifications to start this type of online business. You’ll have general assistant responsibilities and as long as you have a computer, WiFi, and the business framework, that’s all you’ll need to start your business up.
