A regular 8-5 job actually has a lot of setbacks. Maybe we just don’t realize it because we are not exposed to different alternatives.
One type of work that is becoming more and more popular these days is the work of a virtual assistant. A virtual assistant is someone who provides assistance to clients abroad by working on managerial and administrative tasks remotely. I personally believe in the value of a virtual assistant, and I am able to see first hand the benefits that it has in favor of the person. I have my own virtual team who I can see enjoys their work very much because of the convenient work set up and the positive impact that it has on their career and their own lives.
Many people have considered and have decided to enter a career as a virtual assistant. You should too. Here’s why.
1. More family-time
The number one thing that hinders a lot of us from spending time with our family is tiredness. When we get home from work, what do we say?
“Not now, I’m tired.”
“Maybe tomorrow, I’m tired.”
“I don’t have the energy, I’m tired.”
Our highly demanding work causes us physical, emotional, and mental fatigue. We’re just always so tired. Add to that the very exhausting commute from the office to our homes. The result? We are unable to spend time with our families, loved ones, friends, and significant others.
This affects us more than we realize. There are actually studies that show that our relationships actually affect our lives and even our physical health. Good and well-maintained relationships keep our lives fulfilled, builds self-esteem, and keep us emotionally and mentally healthy. Poor relationships just suck the life out of us. Poor relationships can actually also negatively impact our physical health.
One of the biggest benefits of a virtual assistant is a more flexible schedule and a stay-at-home type of work set up. This way, one can be given a chance to spend more time with their families. Therefore, with this kind of set up, not only will you be able to protect your psychological and emotional well-being, you will also be able to protect your physical health.
2. A healthier lifestyle
You’re trying to keep up with your fast-paced work, that’s great. But to what cost? Maybe you’re no longer eating right. Maybe you’re no longer sleeping right. Maybe the stress is already manifesting physically through illnesses like vertigo and hypertension. You don’t always have to live like this. It’s possible to be career-oriented and highly productive at work without sacrificing your health.
And that’s exactly what a stay-at-home type of work set up as a virtual assistant can give you. It can allow you to be career-oriented, yet life-oriented. It can allow you to be productive, not just busy. It can allow you to grow and thrive instead of just survive life.
And because you don’t have to commute to work daily, you can spare yourself from the stress and fatigue that the traffic and draining commute brings. And as we all know, less stress and less fatigue means lesser chances for stress-related illnesses.
3. For safety
We hear stories everyday about people getting mugged in the fx, in jeepneys, or even while walking. With a regular work, the risk for these things happening to you is quite high, especially because you have to travel to the office on a daily basis. Whenever you have to do overtime, the risk is increased because you have to travel late at night or in the wee hours of the morning.
With a stay-at-home type of work, you no longer have to worry about getting robbed or being mugged. You can be assured of your safety as you work in the comfort and security of your very own home.
Career growth doesn’t always have to happen in a fast-paced kind of work. It’s not exclusive to the typical 8-5 job. If you want to experience career growth together with work-life balance, consider starting a career as a virtual assistant.
It’s time for you to choose a life of thriving and not just a life of surviving. Join a team of virtual assistants today who can enable you to experience both career growth and individual growth, so that you can reach your full potential and achieve your life goals.
