The demand for virtual assistants is growing. The job requires at least a high school education, and candidates must be able to juggle calls and multiple clients.

Virtual assistant would probably be the easiest way to start your home based business. You can start out working for a company and then eventually build your own rolodex and client base if you are really good.
