By using your PA, secretarial or administrative skills to work for the clients you choose, you can work the hours to suit you and from your chosen location.
Apart from a PC, you will need at the very least basic office equipment to run an effective service, such as a laser or inkjet printer to run off your everyday printing. The office "all-in-one" systems are good which provide a fax, scanner, photocopier and printer in just one machine.
Back-up facility for clients work and important documentation.
Depending on your niche market and the services you provide, for example, if you are offering digital dictation, you will need the relevant equipment to support that function.
A telephone with voice mail.
You may need to invest in particular computer software packages.
Very simply, you set up your home office with the basic equipment and 'get out there' - this is where the IAVA™ can help you; we will be pleased to advise our members about equipment, marketing your business, how to network, niche markets and much more.
