Before a Virtual Assistant client signs on the dotted line, they may ask you for some kind of proof that you can, in fact, do what you say you can do. I have talked to lots of VAs who seem to get offended by this. Often because the request comes in the form of asking for references or for a resume. They stick their nose up and say they don't want to do those things because they are not an employee. I talked in last episode about what exactly we are asking of our clients when we ask them to invest in our services. The monetary exchange can be substantial. Never, ever take that for granted.

Learning to do marketing is one of the most important skills you can master with your Virtual Assistant business.

‌I get so many questions from Virtual Assistants about how to help our clients find us and notice us. The idea with marketing your VA business is to get noticed - get visibility.

Finding Business Lessons in Your Everyday Life

So many Virtual Assistants make business too hard. We start by thinking we have to be someone else - a business person. Someone who speaks a certain way, who learns certain things, who does certain things. But I remind VAs every day that we are service business professionals.

And second, it can make it really hard to build our confidence - and make decisions. How can we know for sure that something is right f ..read more
