That often falls under the umbrella of virtual assisting as well Again, this is something that a lot of small business owners are looking for You could be working for anyone from an attorney to an entrepreneur, to a blogger, to even Etsy store owners The demand is really large and it's really varied If you have special interests and particular businesses that you like to work with, that's something that you can really dive deep in and become a specialized virtual assistant demanding a higher wage for more specialized services
