This site is primarily geared toward physical tasks like moving, maintenance, and handy work but there is a small section on the website where you can get work as a virtual assistant. Unlike most of the other listings on this post, you can reach to people who are in need of your services and you can then negotiate your price. Task Rabbit is available in the U.S.
Similar to Task Rabbit, Airtasker has a strong focus on providing physical tasks but they do have opportunities available for you to work as a remote assistant (much more than Task Rabbit actually). Just like Task Rabbit, you can check out their website to find people who are in need of your services and you can negotiate a price. Airtasker isn't currently available in the U.S but is available in Australia, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.
With most of these, they have a moderate requirement ceiling meaning it doesn't require anything like college degrees or experience working at big corporate jobs.
most of the requirements want you to have some experience, dedicated hours, a computer with a good internet connection, and a good knowledge of the internet.
