The virtual work industry is booming! Virtual Assistants (VA) support all types of work from office administration to technology and marketing, even to executive leadership. Every hour it seems that more people are looking to start a virtual career. Who can blame them? Having the flexibility to work from anywhere in the world is a serious perk! Plus, schedule autonomy allows work to happen around personal commitments and family schedules. Sounds perfect, right? So why isn't everyone doing this?
This day in 1886, Chicago workers united to start the movement for an 8-hour workday. Fast forward 133 years - that standard still exists. Today's workforce wants flexibility. Perhaps the 8-hour workday should be split in two. Or, maybe it's a 6-hour day. Or... the possibilities are endless!
