Flexible vacation
In the future, I hope to make it so that you can mostly work whenever you want except when we meet to reconnect.

While for now, I have a fixed income that will not allow the hours or pay to be higher, as the hired virtual assistant learns the skills of working with me, there would be opportunities in the future for higher pay and more hours.

If I decide to interview you, there it will be conducted on Zoom, which we will use for future meetings. There is no need to write any more than what I’ve asked in this application.
