Organization is huge. Have all your systems and process in place before you take the leap into working-from-home and this includes an “back-up” plan if you need time off. Again, tapping into WAHM forums and discussion boards will help hone your craft and make friends. I recommend Virtual Assistant Forums and sites like Circle of Moms to find support.

Thank you, this is perfect. I am trying to get a start into looking for legitament work from home jobs. I am a mom of three living with nearly no income. As we have already budgeted we are getting close to being behind. So I am trying to find a way to bring my family some much needed financial releif whilst also being there at home to care and be there for them.
Hey Rebecca, it’s the “other Rebecca” (Franticmommy)! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and commenting on the article about be a virtual assistant. Working from home is making decent money is totally “doable.” There’s one place in particular that has been an excellent source of work/clients for me. Check out HireMyMom.com. AWESOME website. Also, there’s an amazing Facebook group I belong to called The Bloggy Girls Club. These gals are all moms, working from home, making money from blogging. Even though I have been blogging for 6 years, I always learn something new from these ladies. Hope this helps, best of luck to you!
This article was just what I needed. Thanks for all your information.
