When you are working from home it’s important to set boundaries so you are not working so much that it’s taking up your personal time. You also want to make sure you aren’t spending your work time on personal matters. Managing your time is one of the biggest challenges of being a virtual assistant, but there are some systems you can put in place to help with that. The two that we’ll talk about in this episode are setting boundaries for phone communication and sticking to your established business hours.

There is a difference between having a virtual assistant job and having a virtual assistant business and we’ll talk about what both of those look like. Starting out with a virtual assistant job is an important step in the process of building a virtual assistant business, but how do you make that transition? A great way to do that is to get some mentorship and coaching from someone who’s been through it themselves. That’s why I’m excited to introduce a 90-day program to help you grow your business, and I’ll tell you how to get more information about that at the end of this episode.
This week we’re talking about putting systems in place for the things you find yourself doing over and over again. Not only will this save you time, but it will also make things run more smoothly for you. One system you might want to create is for the information you repeatedly communicate to your clients. Another system you’ll want to have is for scheduling appointments with clients. I’ll share my experiences with different scheduling tools and things to consider with that, including why you may want to prequalify your clients before you even accept an appointment.
