Paragon Planners Review and Details
Paragon Planners was first established in 2002. Since that time it has cultivated an outstanding reputation for providing financial advice and financial wholesaling. They do a great job of creating financial management solutions that are customized for each client’s unique needs. Clients hire Paragon Planners to help with:
• Scheduling & Appointment Setting
• Admin/Operations Support
• Event Planning
Although the company doesn’t always have openings, from time to time, they do put out a call for freelance contractors who are interested in working from home. There’s not really much information available about the exact type of work Paragon Planners expects their freelance contractors to do. I’m guessing it depends on what new clients they’ve acquired and what parts of their business could use some additional help. I’ve heard reports that in some cases you’re assigned specific clients who provide you with a list of tasks they need completed, making the job title a virtual assistant. (See my post, Virtual Assistant Jobs – Where To Find Them for more work at home VA type jobs.)
Payments from Paragon Planners
Considering how difficult it was to find out what type of work Paragon Planners has lined up for its freelance contractors, I was surprised to be able to find information about their payments. My research indicates that when freelancers first get accepted into the company they can expect to make approximately $12 an hour. Though some people have reported making as much as $14 an hour. It’s my understanding that the company pays once a month and that the payments have always been very reliable.
The Down Side
The big reason I’ve been hesitant to apply to work for Paragon Planners is because they do want their freelance contractors to commit to a fixed schedule. This is something that is difficult to do when you’re not sure if they’re going to work out as a major source of income. I have heard that when freelancers start out, they don’t generally get more than a handful, about 10, hours of work a week. Someone has told me that the hours pick up once the company is confident that the work submitted will be high quality and that contractors can meet deadlines.
Final Thoughts on Paragon Planners
As far as I can tell, Paragon Planners is a legit source of income and since I haven’t heard any complaints about them. I have to assume they do a good job taking care of their freelancers. My advice is that if you hear they’re hiring and you have room in your work schedule or are looking to break free of a current client, you should send your resume to the email that’s provided on the official website.
Love Pinterest? Love the Idea of Being a Virtual Assistant?
Just thought I'd mention this to my fellow Pinterest lovers. Many businesses and bloggers out there need help managing all of their social media. I can tell you from personal experience, it can be overwhelming. Because of this – those that know their way around Pinterest are being hired as assistants. Specifically managing Pinterest accounts for clients. These are typically all virtual positions. If this sounds pretty cool to you – check out this Pinterest Virtual Assistant course. Several of my readers have gone through the course and rave about it.
