I get this question all the time. With so many options to choose from, its hard to determine the niche you’re looking for unless you are blessed with an all-knowing insight into yourself (I wasn’t!)
1) Think about what you enjoy doing
Are you a people-person or do you enjoy working alone? Do you like customer service, typing, or shopping? These are are options in the work from home field.
2) Don’t sign on for a job you hate
This is such a waste of time for all involved. If you already don’t like the idea of customer service with a healthcare agency, skip it. It will save you and the company time and energy. Plus it looks really crappy to start and then quit a week later.
3) Make sure you have the time to commit
Even though you’re working from home – you’re still working! If you have 30 minutes here or there that’s great, and some companies allow that. However, most companies want you to dedicate 2-4 hours at minimum per day. If you can’t do that, the hours aren’t gonna grow on trees and you probably won’t keep your position.
** Example: I love organizing – its one of my favorite things as dorky as it sounds. When I found my first virtual assistant job, I was in HEAVEN! I got to organize OTHER people and get paid for it. They didn’t pay for the sass, that was just an added bonus. If this sounds like something you would enjoy stay tuned – the class is launching soon!
Wrapping it all up – find something that sounds fun, pays you well and that you won’t dread logging into each day.
