In 2015 we hope to exceed the number of clients that we serve as well as extend our services for additional hours. Many work as Virtual Assistants seasonally, when they are between jobs or use it as secondary income to resolve a hardship or a perhaps a vacation. Some choose to work as Virtual Assistants and make a career of it, seeing the possibilities and future of a virtual and remote workplace.


We have also found that being a Virtual Assistant or working remotely isnt for everyone. Many of us are used to the surroundings of the office, the drive to work and the structure which is naturally created, so some find it hard to work from home with the availability of new distractions lurking everywhere.
