You may have heard about freelancing before, a freelancer is a person who does jobs or contracts for other business people and firms on a job by job basis. You are sort of like a gun for hire and use your typing and internet skills to help others.
Freelancing is similar to being a virtual assistant where the work is mostly internet based. The main difference between the two types of work are that as a freelancer you tend to have more clients that you do fewer jobs for. As a VA you tend to have a smaller list of clients that you do work for on a regular basis. You do not have to be exclusively one or the other and you could do both types of work.
As a freelance worker you can take advantage of the many online market places where people in this field bid for work. You can also contact businesses directly online and offline in your local area, this is especially practical for virtual assistants.
You may be considering doing freelance typing work from home either as a way to earn some extra money in the evening or as a path to a new work at home career. Typing is a skill that will always be in demand and being able to type, especially proficiently and accurately with speed will give you an advantage in the typing jobs market.
You may have considered a typing job they can do from home, you may have been a typist or have done typing as part of a previous job. Now you want to use those typing skills but you need to be able to stay at home due to either a lifestyle choice or out of necessity.
If you want to do typing work from home have you considered being a virtual assistant? If you have never heard of the term virtual assistant or VA it basically means that you provide various office based services from home for other businesses.
