How You Can Work From Home as A Virtual Assistant

By Jomar Hilario
Tuesday, June 28 · 9:00am - 5:00pm
Rosewood Pointe, Taguig City

If you wish to come home and WORK FROM YOUR OWN HOME, then you've found what you're looking for.

There's no waiting to change your mind from employee to entrepreneur, no need to read lots of books - just this one seminar - and the serious students immediately replaced their day job with a work at home "gig".

It's quickly from unemployment or underemployment to receiving minimum $250/month (P 10,000) to $700 (P 30,000) - per client- from your own home. We're not talking of "per project" here. It's a constant stream of income, just like an employee - without the negative traffic, bosses and office politics.

If you like what you're seeing, then start by attending the VA (Virtual Assistant) seminar in Cebu, Manila or if you're far away, download the seminar.

A VA is your FASTEST way to going HOME and working and still earn in $$ (any currency really). I'm sure it will change your family life. More time for kids, spouse, the house! No office politics, no traffic, no uniforms (hey, I'm typing this with my pajamas on.). No storms, no wet umbrellas, no stranded in 7-11, no bad taxi experiences, no joining the office party when you're utterly bored with it all and hoping to win in the raffle is your only joy.

When you're at home, you'll rediscover your real joys, your family. And your own time.
