Good Evening-I am hoping to find some assistance. I am an Administrative Assistant for a growing corporation-and have my Associate Degree in Business Administration-I have recently been notified that I am as high as I will be able to go on their corporate ladder and am nearly maxed out with regard to my salary. I am the only person in the office, so I handle a plethura of responsibilities-for example assisting with payroll, running Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, troubleshooting, general ledger reconciling, deposits, running monthly reports, typing correspondence-just pretty much anything regarding the office. I am 28 years old with 2 small children. My children are watched by my mother-in-law whom this weekend called me a neglegent parent because I allowed my 8 year old 100 lb daughter carry my 2 year old 29 lb son down the stairs when he was crying. I now feel really comfortable allowing her to watch my children all day (which she has been doing for about 5 years now)-my parenting is always under scruteny. For these reasons I need (not only want) to work from home. I understand it can be difficult to maintain other adult contact, but I am willing to face that challenge if it means having a better handle on work-life balance. I just can not find legit work at home ops. Is there anyone who has provided virtual assistance to companies? Perhaps in the administrative/accounting field? How did you go about building your clientel? I need steady work-guaranteed income, and be able to be there for my children. (Not to say that people who work aren't there for their children-they are it is just here child care will cost me $350 per week and I make 740 take home every 2 weeks yes that is 20 per week if I find traditional day care so I can continue to work). Does anyone have any advice-I am open to anything.
