Going to work with the kind of public transportation we have is like going to war. For many, the daily commute can be very stressful compared to working from home.
What made you decide to become a VA?

During the pandemic, we were given a chance to work from home. But later that year, we were asked to report on-site. This is why I resigned from my previous company.

20four7VA has helped me grow as a person and improve my people skills. I gained new knowledge on various VA skills and understood different client industries.
I am very grateful that I have colleagues who I consider as my mentors.
