Virtual Assistant with laptop

With your admin skills, odds are that you can work almost anywhere, any time!

Odds are pretty good that you, like me, have quite a few admin skills sitting around, skills that could be used to generate income from home.

How about

  • Computer skills
  • Microsoft Word and/or Excel
  • Graphics skills
  • Organizational skills
  • Team building skills
  • Letter writing
  • Report writing
  • Telephone skills

… all these, and lots more, will hold you in good form as you begin to build your home business. These skills may seen pretty basic to you, but trust me, those who don’t possess these skills envy you to no end!

Now that you’ve had a chance to take a peek at some of the types of companies that can use your skills, what do you think?

Do you have other ideas?

Perhaps you are like my friend Peggy who decided that the greatest business in the world would be to put on “organic baby fairs” throughout her region. It put her in touch with mothers like herself, and it provided a much needed service. She loved it, and her energy showed it. She mostly worked from home, setting up a corner office in her guest bedroom. And, since the fairs were local, she didn’t even have to travel much. As she got in touch with suppliers, she found that they were perfectly willing, eager even, to sponsor the organic baby fairs, and she ended up creating a very nice part time business for herself. She could have grown the business more had she opted to expand her territory, or to grow her business online, but with little ones at home she chose to keep it just as a local business.

Your goal is to identify a “something” that grabs your imagination, something that you can truly get excited about. Then see how you can fashion a business around that idea.

Do jot below what ideas you are pondering. Perhaps others can help you out, or you can give them an idea or two.

Your goal is to find Your Idea, Your Home Business. It is there, and you’ve got lots of admin skills to make it a reality now!
