National Work from Home Week is October 5-11
Entrepreneurs, Stay-At-Home Moms and Teleworkers relish working from home every day. As a military spouse who experiences frequent moves, I was seeking a more flexible career in my area of expertise. I took my Office Manager/Executive Assistant skills out of the traditional office setting, established a business as a Virtual Assistant (VA), and traded a daily commute by car to a short walk down the hallway to my home office. The convenience doesn’t stop there. Work can be accomplished anywhere there’s an Internet connection and the Internet is available 24/7. Stop there. That’s a blessing and a curse. Whether entrepreneur or careerist, everyone strives for a work-life balance compatible with our family’s lifestyle.
