My name is Corrinna "Cori" Pratt and I am the Independent Business owner of Pratt's Answering Service, LLC. I started my company in 2013 when I found myself unemployed and having personal issues that needed attending to. My life at that time would not let me go back to work for someone else in a brick-and-mortar environment so I needed to find something that would allow me to stay at home and be able to have the flexibility to work when I could and have time off when I needed it. So, I went out to the internet to search for a job that I could do from the comforts of my own home.
I knew I wanted to do something that I could use my background as an Administrative Assistant for and I wanted something that would offer me the feeling of a job well done at the end of the day. I spent several weeks researching and was amazed at how many scams were out there. How many opportunities wanted you to sell something or refer other people to earn your pay. I didn't think I would be great at selling things, so I did not do much research on those types of position. I knew if you had to refer people and they had to refer people for you to earn your money that those were more less a pyramid scheme, so I stayed as far away from them as I could. I knew though that there had to be legitimate job opportunities out there. Then I happened onto the Arise Virtual Solutions page and that was the game changer.
I spent several days researching Arise, I read all of the good and the bad reviews of what people had to say about the company, watched the videos of when they were featured in the news. After all my research I decide to take the leap of faith and I have never regretted that decision.
When I first joined Arise, I set myself up as an Independent Business owner. Becoming a business owner is not for everyone as there are many things that you need to learn along the way. I spent the first year with Arise learning about the way things operate.
I decided in 2014 to open up my company to have Customer Service Professionals (CSP) partner with my company so they could also use the Arise Platform and work from the comforts of their own home. I knew there had to be stay and home moms and dads, military families, college students, disabled and retired people out there that might not have the finances of setting up their own Limited Liability Company but wanted the same opportunity to stay at home and work.
My company provides anyone who partners with us the basics of getting started with using the Arise Platform. We help get you set up so that you too can work from the comforts of your home. During the years that I have been with Arise I have learned the ins and outs and am willing to share them so that it is not such an overwhelming experience.
The 7 best things about partnering with my company are:
1. Work from Home - There will be no commuting for this job. You will be able to stay at home and work the job around your day-to-day schedule. You pick the hours that you want to work. Don't want to get out of your PJ's today? Now you don't have to.
2. Time for Family - What is better than having more time to spend with your family and friends? Got a sporting event, a dance competition, a parent teacher conference, a doctor’s appointment, or a vacation you have been putting off because you can’t get the time off of work. Well now you can do all of those things and not worry about missing hours at work, because those are the time you just don’t schedule yourself to work.
