Opening your eyes to where your time is going and recognizing how valuable it is so you’re not so quick to give it away. Each moment should be cherished especially the pockets of time that are free for us to take care of ourselves.
In this week’s episode we discuss how mistakes help us grow and learn in our virtual assistant business. You are not perfect nor will the things you do in business be perfect. It’s easy to say, however do our actions reflect that we know this. Remembering that we are imperfect allows us to move forward in letting people know about our business. It also takes away the stress of trying to be perfect. Clients are NOT looking for perfect. They are looking for someone who will respond when mistakes happen. Let’s discuss it!
Every now and then, we have an episode that takes us on an unexpected turn. It requires we dive deeper into ourselves and the reasons we’re even in business. As you listen to this episode be honest with yourself about your start and your motivations for having your own virtual assistant business. Take heed to what comes to your mind immediately. Those tend to be our truest response to a situation. Let’s dive in!
With so much going on all around us in addition to life, what’s keeping you motivated to keep moving forward. As business owners our motivation should be more internal than external. Let’s discuss how we can make some adjustments so our motivation and drive is not thrown to and fro like the wind.
This week I’m discussing how the change in the season and environment overall is spilling into my business. I also discuss how trying to be rigid blocked me into a corner. Can you relate? Let’s discuss it!
This week we discuss income generating activities.
When I first started my virtual assistant business I did not understand this concept. Not fully anyway. I thought doing my client work was income generating. I mean after all when I did the work I got paid. However, when other business owners discussed income generating they were talking about much more than doing the work.
In a sense, because I had already gotten the project and was doing the work that income had already been generated. I needed to focus on generating more.
What happens if the internet goes away? I’m wondering about this right now. I’m also thinking if this is the case, we need to run like never before and use it all while we still have access. As a result, more clients are coming. Get ready for them now!!
What if you could cut through what makes you nervous about speaking for the first time with potential clients? It’s possible when answer a few questions in advance. While this may seem like a no brainer, it’s not. If your responses are not written and reviewed prior, who knows what you’ll say when virtually face to face with a potential client. This weeks episode will better prepare you for your next call.
For years, I’ve written on post-its, blank sheets of a paper, inside different notebooks but not keeping everything in one place. I also tried setting my calendar to be focused on a set thing for an exact timeframe. However that left me feeling caged in. With none of these options working for me, I’ve finally figured out the best way for me to stay organized. A way that gets me excited for the day and looking forward to accomplishing all that I’ve set out to do for the week. I hope this helps you as well. If nothing else, it provides another option to try on your journey to getting organized.
It’s the return of the podcast and I’m so excited to be back. This week I share five things I wished I’d known before starting my virtual assistant business. I hope you’ll find them helpful and make your journey more focused on the things that are important to you and your business.
