Possessing customer service skills and or call center experience are very valuable skills to have in order to maintain a business as a virtual call center representative.
The skills and knowledge I've acquired at my previous employer have proven to be invaluable skills, which have made it possible for me to work for myself as a virtual call center representative.
My theory is, "Why work for someone else, when you have an opportunity to work for yourself?" Working for yourself allows you the freedom and the flexibility to schedule your work around your life instead of scheduling your life around your work.
For instance, I woke up this morning and worked a couple of hours before taking my daughter to dance class. After leaving dance class, we met with my her cousin and her mom for a play date at Jungle Java.
After returning from our play date, I assisted my daughter with her homework and spent some quality time with her. I then prepared dinner, which was done approximately 5 minutes before my shift for the evening started.
I prepared my daughter's dinner plate as well as mine and headed upstairs to work. I finished my dinner a few minutes prior to receiving a call. My daughter was able to spend an entire day with me and I din't have to make any child care arrangements for her.
I was also able to call one of my real estate clients to follow-up on a message he left for me earlier today.
I will return to work a few more shifts this evening simply because I want to and not because I have to. I created my own schedule today based on what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it.
Today I was able to accomplish everything I wanted to accomplish. Freedom is priceless. Can somebody please tell me why I didn't think to do this sooner in life?
