Although the media make it seem as if the world has gone into meltdown, not a lot has changed with many of the VAs I know. In fact, many of my trainees, as well as VAs in my VA Handbookers Facebook group, say they have just landed new clients or that current clients have increased their hours.
I have also been talking to other freelancers who say they are relieved that they work for themselves. In the words of my Accountant “I’d rather be self-employed with lots of clients than precariously working for one employer at the moment.”
One of my Facebook group Moderators said her job would have been exposed if she was still in retail and both of my previous positions would have been affected.
