Imagine that...the guy is discussing what I can do to help his business grow and I am making suggestions and giving him results of what I have done in the past and he asks me this absurd question.
I suppose his job wasn't 'real' because he was contracting with a VA.
I surely turned that job down...and he called me back 3 times.
Thanks for that confirmation.
I supposed most people think that it's only a 'real' job if you work in an office etc or are employed by someone else.
Being a VA is certainly a real job and I will be sure to be telling everyone from now on with no hesitation that I am a Virtual Assistant!
Wow, I feel a bit empowered now...
