As summer is winding down, I wanted to do a fun and light episode about six things to be aware of when you start working from home in your virtual assistant business. These are some things I’ve experienced firsthand that I thought would be fun to share with you on the podcast. Also, keep in mind that there are only about four months left in the year and you may have some goals that you still want to accomplish.
