  • I had looked into this but there were a lot of things that didn't work out for me.
    1. Many places want you to answer phone calls as well. (I couldn't do that considering I have to toddlers running around.)
    2. There were only positions in certain states, not mine.
    3. The pay was VERY little, for what seemed to be very time consuming. Work at home Jobs just don't pay very much.
    4. I paid $59.95 for a one year membership to find a position, but I didn't find anything that worked for me. I was able to get my money back minus $14.95.

    This wasn't for me, but it might be for you.

    If you're really interested, you can go on and type Virtual Assistant in the search section and you can find companies that are accredited by the Better Business Bureau.
