If you’ve ever Googled “work from home”, you will quickly see that there are around 10,380,000,000 results. Really! And that is WAY too much information to sift through. Mama ain’t got time for that!
Are you even a little curious about your income-making options that are not either working 40+ hours a week at an exhausting 9-5 job while paying for expensive child care or staying at home making no income?
If you said ‘yes’, then this is the episode for you, my friend.
There’s been so much buzz on the internet around Virtual Assistant businesses. And to be honest, it sounds really appealing as an option for moms at home with little kids.
But I like to get the FULL list of pros and cons and real-life behind-the-scenes on things before I make any decisions on how I feel about something. Especially when it comes to money!
I have a feeling that you might be the same way. So I brought on my guest for this episode of the Gotcha Mama podcast, wife, toddler mama, and Virtual Assistant Taryn Sowa.
Taryn helps online businesses run and manage their business while she takes care of a toddler at home. Her background is not in marketing or business administration, but she quit her traditional full-time job to start her Virtual Assistant business. And get this, she started getting clients right out of the gate!
She shares lots of great real-life experience with starting and running her business as well as some tips and advice so other mamas like you can avoid the mistakes she made when she first started.
Curious about the “mysterious world” of Virtual Assistants and what they really do?
Wondering how you can make money using your skills to work from home either now or in the future without joining an MLM?
*Not that there is anything wrong with a network marketing company. I just know they aren’t for everyone. So don’t start sending me ‘hate emails’, Nancy. I love my Beautycounter as much as the next Clean Beauty mama, Okay.*
Then you DO NOT want to miss this conversation with Taryn!
