Virtual Assisting as the Perfect Side Hustle

Are you looking to make some extra money? Have you ever thought about becoming a Virtual Assistant? A side hustle as a Virtual Assistant is an ideal way to supplement your income. With the flexibility of setting your own hours, you can fit it in around your existing job or family commitments.

You absolutely do NOT have to be a full-time Virtual Assistant. This is the perfect gig to do as a side hustle.

You can offer tasks that can easily be done before or after work. The beautiful thing about being a VA is that you make your own schedule; you get to work on your time.

I did it as a side hustle for 8 months to supplement my income. I made an additional $1500 a month, working 5h a week. That's an hour a day after work, you can barely feel it!

What is a virtual assistant?

The official definition of a virtual assistant is this: A virtual assistant is a freelancer, entrepreneur, and independent contractor who provides administrative services to clients while working remotely and operating outside of the client's office.

My definition goes something like this: A virtual assistant is a person who has decided to work on their own terms, be their own boss, do work they actually enjoy, work from anywhere, and offer services they love doing and are good at. It's someone who has the freedom to spend time with friends and family doing things they love without sacrificing their career.

It's the perfect option for a stay-at-home mom who wants to make some extra money or someone with a full-time job looking to take on a side gig to supplement their income.

What do virtual assistants do?

Virtual assistants (VAs) are freelancers who provide professional administrative, technical, and creative services to businesses and entrepreneurs. The services they offer can range from basic tasks like answering emails, scheduling appointments, and data entry, to more complex jobs like web development, social media marketing, and content writing. They may even offer specialized services such as graphic design, video editing, and bookkeeping. VAs are well-rounded professionals who can handle any job that comes their way. As a side gig or full-time job, virtual assisting is an excellent choice for individuals looking to supplement their income or build a career as a freelancer.

The bottom line: As a VA, you can offer whatever services you want to offer. Because, remember, you're the boss.
