How to Work from Home with Arise Virtual Solutions

Today's "I Want to Be" series features Kam Bosket, who works at home with Arise Virtual Solutions.  Kam is a homeschooling mom to three boys, ages 15, 10 and 7.  She and her family live in South Carolina, though she's also had her business in North Carolina and Florida and is glad the business is portable!  In her free time, Kam enjoys learning about holistic and organic lifestyles, reading, and doing a bit of sewing.

How long have you had your business?

I've been self-employed for 5 years.

What led you to pursue it?

 As my main job in life is being a homeschooling mommy, I was looking for a way to supplement our income without taking away time from my family.  I wanted something that had flexible hours, something that allowed me to work at home, and something that paid decently.

Are you full time or part time?  If part-time, do you anticipate switching to full time?

 I work part-time, about 15-20 hours a week, though I do gear up to full time during the holiday season, as well as any other time of year that we anticipate needing more income.

How do you market your business?

I personally do not need or choose to market my business, as I do not need to sell my service to clients.  The company I partner with, Arise Virtual Solutions, brings clients in the door.

What is your favorite part of the business?

I love speaking with customers, learning about people and helping them book vacations!

What one question do you get most from people about your business?

"Is this a scam?" 

What one myth or misconception do you want to dispel about the work you do? 

Arise Virtual Solutions is not a scam, even though one does have to invest time and money into the opportunity before bringing in income. Just as with any business that you open, whether it be a retail store, restaurant, or even those MLM companies, a person must invest into their business before the business can be successful. Thus the Arise Virtual Solutions opportunity is no different in that aspect.

The aspect that is different is that unlike those other types of businesses that require you to sell and the income is not a for-sure-thing, with Arise, once you've completed training, you know you will get a paycheck within the next two weeks, and every two weeks following.

Regarding fees, there is an enrollment fee, which is normally $99. Arise often runs specials, so you could pay quite a bit less. Last month they had a special reducing it to $4.95. (I believe they were trying to gear up for the holidays as several clients are retailers, and this would be the busy season for them, so they likely wanted to increase the staff.)

There is a background check fee, which is $19.95.

Then you do pay to sign up with your client. That varies widely, and there are sometimes specials. For example, I paid $249 for one leading technology company, but I also earned a free Mac and won a free iPad. I paid $79 for a client that likes to have fun on ships. I am currently in training with another client that is well-known throughout the world. I paid $49 for this client. I've seen clients as low as $19.99. So a wide range, and of course all these fees are a tax-write off. (By terms of our contracts we are not allowed to post publicly the names of our clients.)

So one could get started with as little as $50, or as much as $300. Of course one does pay for their own internet, and if the client is phone based, pays for their own landline phone.

What advice do you have for others who want to get into a similar opportunity?

Take the jump!  As a wise man once said, "There's no reward without risk."
