When was the last time you were placed on hold by a customer service agent and thought, "That was fun?" Right, never. But if you made a few bucks for the effort, that would be kind of cool.
You can do that as a virtual assistant. That's an increasingly popular job, where you remotely work for people or companies, doing things like answering the phone, typing documents, or performing tasks like making restaurant reservations.
There's a virtual assistant job site we like called Perssist (think, "personal assistant"). When you sign up on Perssist, you'll see tasks that employers would rather pay you to do for them than do themselves.
It's a good way to make extra money, and it can be fun because you're always working for different people on different tasks. One morning, you may have a client ask you to spend up to 20 minutes getting prices for places to have their kid's birthday party.
