I was recently introduced to a company called Ziptask. The more I learned about the company, the more I was reminded of FancyHands, another virtual assisting company.
Ziptask relieves the burden of busy people by allowing them to post tasks that can be done remotely and then returned. They have a great explanation of who they are in this video:

Ziptask offers flexible hours
The greatest thing about working for task based companies is the ability to work when and where you want. Ziptask is available 24/7, meaning you can work whenever you want (as long as their is work to be done).
Is this a full-time gig with plenty of work available?
I have not a clue. I have sent in my resume and I hope to find out soon! But with any task based company, I would be careful about relying on them for a steady income. Being a freelancer has it’s ups and downs. Depending on client based work often means you have busy times and dry spells. I wouldn’t suggest relying on anything that doesn’t have set hours. My own graphic/web design business is just the same. So hard to depend on the money as it seems work comes in waves. But somehow it always comes together.
A few requirements to work for Ziptask:
You must be a US resident and you must speak English.
Ziptask also shows an interest in people who have knowledge in Excel, Microsoft Word, Power Point (so old school) and Photoshop.
