According to this CNBC news report from last year, at least 70% of people around the world work remotely at least one day a week. (For some of us, it’s every day of the week!) I wanted to share some of my favorite gift ideas for 2019 to give to the work at home people in your life.

I often get asked what I do as a virtual assistant. Many people are mystified about the whole “work from home” situation and more often than not, people say “I could never do that.” It’s true, this isn’t for everyone. You really have to be able to multitask and be aware of everything that’s going on.
The title of this blog is a bit of a misnomer. There really isn’t a “typical” day for a virtual assistant, but I thought I’d share my day with you so you can kind of get a behind the scenes tour of what happens.
When you go to a brick and mortar job, you leave home behind for several hours and focus on the work you’re doing. And when you leave for the day, people always tell you: “Don’t take your work home with you!” You leave that chaos behind. But what do you do if you’re having a bad day AND you work from home? How do you separate your personal stress from your work at home life?
I am surrounded by clocks. They all tell different times. Of course, the cell phone and laptop clocks are all on a universal time, so they’re the ones we consider “accurate.”
But the rest of the clocks in my life do their own thing. The living room clock is a few minutes fast. The kitchen clock runs about a minute behind. The appliances all have different times. (The microwave has to be reset every week!) One of our car clocks is always slow.
Honestly, I have no idea what time it is. And I don’t care.
