Why This Worked
Switching to a skilled job, like a virtual assistant, from a routine job, like a food service worker, has enabled DuBoff to charge more for his work.
“Now, I’m making a minimum of $4,000 a month — that’s after just a little over one year of being a virtual assistant,” he said. “I’m only working around 10 hours per week on client work, or 40 hours per month. That puts my hourly rate at roughly $100 per hour. From a monthly perspective, that’s a 500% increase, and from an hourly perspective, that’s a 920% increase.”
