Advances in technology have dramatically shifted how and where we work. Still many of us still struggle with the constraints of having a set “nine-to-five”. Finding time to accomplish everything in our life is what keeps many of us on the on-going search for the elusive “work-life balance.” However, technology continues to disrupt how work is accomplished, fundamentally changing how we approach our work. Can you imagine a world where you can exercise freedom to work when you want, flexibility in choosing your schedule, and choice in electing the projects that you are most attracted to?
This dream is now a reality! Many busy women and moms have learned how to build successful businesses and livelihoods by becoming independent service providers and partnering their home based businesses with companies, such as Great VirtualWorks, who are always looking for professional and flexible resources.
For some of us, gone are the days of getting up and getting the family ready for their busy days is a mad dash. Instead imagine having the luxury to be the kind of mom that can be present each morning as she helps her family prepare for their day. To be able to take time at your leisure and without guilt to take your children to appointments, recreational activities, or play dates. Imagine having flexibility to choose when and how much you work – and when you do schedule yourself to work, you do so in 30 minute increments giving you the ultimate freedom to choose how you prioritize your life.
This is not a fantasy; this is a reality!
If you are tired of being at the constant whim of your employer and enduring such things as last minute deadlines keeping you in the office later than expected. Or the constant barrage of e-mails and texts on your mobile device which prevent you from truly disconnecting, then you may want to join the virtual revolution! The customer service providers that specialize in virtual call centers are always looking for highly motivated, dedicated, and professional individuals to join their talent communities. These companies partner with independent, home-based businesses to provide high quality support to their clients which include many premier global brands. They offer the flexibility that all of us seek and are popular with women who have taken a break from the workforce to focus on their families.
So how does one become an independent service provider?
The virtual customer service industry is a growing field and with so many options it is important that you conduct thorough research on each company. Since you will be creating your own business, if you don’t already have one, it is important for you to plan for some up-front costs. For example, most companies looking for independent service providers will often require a background check that you will have to pay for. You must also provide your own computer equipment and possibly set up a corporate bank account. You will also have to attend and successfully pass a certification course. The certification courses typically teach you how to navigate a client’s systems and provide you with information to support the client’s products and services. One of the emerging companies in this industry, Great VirtualWorks, recognizes that some of the up-front costs, such as certification fees, can be prohibitive to individuals from pursuing this type of opportunity so they offer the initial certification for free to new independent service providers that join their network. If the thought of working from home all alone sounds daunting to you – never fear! Great VirtualWorks offers access to support resources via telephone, e-mail, and chat!
