Best Practices as a Virtual Assistant


Gain tips on setting up their home office, tools for managing a busy schedule, and help your employer remember crucial scheduling details.

Office jobs are moving into the home. What was once done at a physical location can now be done anywhere with a phone and internet connection. Working from home sounds like a dream, but it comes with its own set of problems. How do I set up my office? How do I set up my schedule? I am stuck, and my boss sent an email with poor instructions. When do I stop working? How do I deal with distractions? This course will help the new army of work-from-home assistants develop systems and routines for success. In this course, the office administrator will learn tips on setting up their home office and gain tools for managing a busy schedule and helping their employer remember crucial scheduling details. A decision-making framework will be discussed, providing a roadmap for growth and new responsibilities. Finally, you will learn about how we prioritize tasks and set boundaries while working from home. Managing the new work environment while delivering results sets up the virtual assistant for a long and profitable career.
