Fun fact: before becoming a mental health advocate, and before the birth of Mindful + Melanated’s sister circles, I owned and operated a virtual assistant business. I started working from home as a virtual assistant because the employer for whom I was working refused to approve a reasonable accommodation request I submitted due to some mental health issues I was experiencing. So I said, “Forget these folks I am going to do my own thing.”
Starting a business was scary. Quite frankly, I did not know what I was doing. I just knew that I could not work for anyone else anymore and that I needed to get these bills paid. Keep in mind that I made the decision to start a home-based virtual business way before Ms. Rona showed up and knocked the world on it’s ass.
Working from home is definitely the norm now. There are companies out there that have morphed from a brick and mortar business into a fully-remote operation. This means that the need for remote workers is not going away any time soon. If you ever played with the idea of starting a home-based virtual business, you need to attend this year’s VA World Conference. The VA World Conference is an annual event for women of color who are seeking the tools and information they need to start their own virtual assistant business.
I am humbled and honored that I have been asked to speak at this year’s conference. I will be discussing the importance of maintaining your mental health while starting a new business. As a thank you for my participation, the conference organizers are allowing me to invite (50) women of color to attend the event as my personal guests for FREE.
