Transition: From Part Time VA to Full Time VA

I have become a full time Virtual Assistant from 19th of July 2015. From 2009 to 30th June 2015, I was a part time VA. I enjoyed the benefits of getting paid twice a month - one from my regular day job and the other from my freelance clients. It was so good to enjoy the facilities of an air-conditioned office room, free internet connection and enough time to fulfill both the responsibilities of an admin as well as a VA.

Now, it has become my responsibility to pay for my internet connection, let go off the air-conditioner during the day time (remember, I have to pay my EB bill :) ), answering calls at the door, baby sitting at times, going to school to pick up my little nephew, helping in the house chores, working on the dinning table with my laptop, running to hide from kids to work without getting disturbed etc., Now I understand the woes of work-from-home mommies.

The finer part is that I don't have to run on the road and under the subway to board a train in the morning to go to office, in time. I don't have to weave my way among the crowded platform and on the road. People walk so slow, that at times I had to control myself from bursting in anger. I don't have to undergo the difficulties of finding a share-auto that goes to my place of living in the evening. I don't have to worry about the drunkard men that roam around the Pallavaram railway station road. I once had a very bad experience with a drunkard. I was touched at the back from behind me. The most finer part is that I don't have to work with as well as sub-ordinate men who are less capable than myself.

I wasn't posting blog posts regularly earlier. Now I have enough time to write at least one blog post a week, both in my personal blog as well as in my professional blog.

Thanks for stopping by. Please come back to read my new posts. I would like to connect with you, if you are a Virtual Assistant. Please leave your social media profile links in the comment. Let us make a team of VAs.
