No Rush Hour Commute
No sitting in traffic that is barely moving or getting up at the crack of dawn to try to avoid it. As a VA working from home your commute will consist of no more than a trip down the stairs, into the kitchen via the kettle, with the final stop of your journey being your desk and computer. And just imagine in the summer months being able to take your lunch break in your own back garden!
