If you genuinely like facilitating projects and marshaling people, then personal assistant for hire is the job for you.

    In my position, everything is centered around what the client needs. My own needs have suffered.

    I am self-employed and would like more structure in my days.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Personal assisting is not for everybody. If you don't have the personality for it, it will wear you down in a hurry.

Self employed is wonderful and while my kids were at home and in school, it really worked out. Now I must travel to my parents and children and am seeking a remote position to best help my family after hours.

    I am self employed and have decided to find an online remote employment to better serve my aging parents who live 1000 miles away. I will be able to be mobile with my work and serve my family best.

    Youngest child is over 20 years. Back then there was NO maturnity leave. Doubly when self employed. The self employed get no government aid in any way. Insurance was and continues to be highest expense.

Your opinions matter. Speak up. As I work for a company owned by my husband and myself. This is a tough question.

    Work is cyclical. It's more demanding around the first day of the month and tax time.

Working for yourself can be a little difficult. Because I have no help. I build my own sites and I promote my own products

Self employment gives you flexibility and can be beneficial if you can secure benefits and manage a stead income.
