Virtual assistant

Today I learned about how to become a virtual assistant. Virtual assistants are important for helping people with travel, work, and more.

Some virtual assistants are paid higher than others depending on the job but for all the work is rigorous. You're responsible for making sure your employer is taken care of and that the work is completed successfully.

There are often tools and apps that can help you complete your job and do it to the best of your abilities.

Health/Productivity & Stress management

Today I learned about how to stay cool under pressure when working. The importance of prioritizing your health over working. If you're not healthy, then you cannot get your job done. I also learned about managing stress and not letting it take over your life.

When stressed out, it can impact your health and day to day life. To combat stress, try finding activities to do that you find enjoyable and experienced people to talk to about your problems.

cover letters/scams/resumes

Today I learned the importance of having a cover letter and a resume. I also learned how to approach a job interview so that you are almost guaranteed the position you are looking for.

Today I learned about remote working and cryptocurrency.

Remote working has its pros and cons. Each remote working site is different depending on the work environment, employers, and employees. You should always make a decision based on what works best for you. Remote working allows for a different kind of freedom yet it still is work.

Cryptocurrency is another form of currency. It is somewhat popular. When trading and earning money in cryptocurrency, make sure you are using a secure system that hackers cannot invade. Don't be reckless with your cryptocurrency because it is almost impossible to recover once hacked or stolen.
