If you have a job and don’t want to leave it, you can still start your own home based business and earn some extra money, or just get your feet wet with a new career before you make a permanent decision.

It is possible to start part-time working at home as a Virtual Assistant and there are some advantages to approaching your business this way.

This also gives you a taste of what being a virtual assistant is really about and whether it is the right career move for you. Good to know before you invest in starting a virtual assistant business as your sole source of income.
