What if neither graphics nor writing suits you? Not to worry there are plenty of other opportunities out there. You can become a virtual assistant, helping businesses with a variety of tasks.
This can be a lot of fun because you get to do something new every day. Some days, you might be managing customer emails. Other days, you might be managing the blog, managing social media accounts, or writing articles. Basically, you’ll do whatever your client assigns you.
It’s the equivalent of working in an office and having tasks to do here, except you get to do it all from the comforts of home, on your own schedule. Virtual assistants typically charge by the hour.
