Working more than 8 hours a day is an expression of commitment to my job. To run a remote support business, putting more effort and hard work into it is not an easy job. It’s my profession and I want to be accountable for myself. Trying to learn that to be in this business. I have to be fully committed and be determined to go where my business would take me.
When I started my virtual path a few years ago, I thought it would be the same as having a 9 to 5 job. I realized during my journey. There is no holding back about learning the future of being a home based worker. A lot of things could happen. At first, I was not sure that I should be going in this direction. Because I constantly face being criticized of being in front of the computer all the time. Telling me that I should be doing what everyone else is following.
My encounter with several clients that I met online have tested my abilities to its fullest. I surprised at myself for being able to do what I cannot do. Able to deliver great results for what they want. It was a revelation that this type of job could work for me. I don’t like listening to someone who is uncomfortable with the idea of being a home based assistant. Doing work in front of the laptop or computer all the time. I love computers. Their decisions might push me. I don’t want it to dictate how I want to follow my passion.
I am a full-time employee and I learn to love the life as a virtual assistant. They were wrong about the kind of job that would suit me. I was happy to manage to work alone and being able to focus on my job. They added I could end up as a socially awkward person. Honestly, I was not. I volunteer for teaching jobs and join networking. I appreciate the cycle of my obligations. The balance and the freedom I experience made my life simpler compared before.
I finished my teaching certification. Other things like having a few courses up my sleeve really help me to step up in the race. The situation engages me to be fully aware of my skills and capabilities. Not take them for granted and allow me to learn in the process. My job inspires me to be exceptional at what I do. It made me appreciate that not every journey is a one size fits all plan.
