I Love Being Virtual!

It's me, VA Mommy

Working from Panera today

Today is one of those days that I am so glad that I picked this work at home business. I really do love being a Virtual Assistant. Today, I decided to have a little bit of a change of scenery. Since I had an outing planned with the Mr. tonight, I packed up the munchkin and his stuff a little early, headed to Grandma’s house (and she rocks!) and set up shop at a local Panera Bread for the afternoon. Love taking advantage of their free Wi-Fi and yummy goodies.

It’s great to get out of the house, and have a change of scenery. And oddly enough, I manage to be a little more productive when I do this. I’ve already finished up several client projects, and started writing a bunch of blog posts that I’ll schedule to go out later.

It is the beauty of being virtual. I can work from anywhere. I can work in my pajamas/work-out clothes. I can work with my son yelling and carrying on in the background while I handle all my projects via email and internet access. I can work while I’m out of town (though my family would rather I leave the laptop at home and  shut off the phone while on vacation). Though operating a small business like this is hard work, it really is one of the more flexible business opportunities out there.

Some days, you just have to get out. Today, I jumped at the chance.

    You know-I don’t think I’ve ever been to a Panera. Have to try it sometime! ;-) It does sound like being a virtual assistant would be a pretty cool job-as much as I love blogging I don’t necessarily consider it a job–but to be paid to do what I love to do in the comfort of my own home would be awesome!

    Found you through the Theta Mom Community-just joined! ;-D

    I work from home as well and that is the one beauty of working online – it can be done anywhere and anytime.

    Love the blog design and so glad you joined TMC!
