Practical Advice for Virtual Assistants Part 2
This piece of advice might sound kind of strange, but it’s probably the most important piece of advice I’ll ever give: Make sure you actually want this.
The reason I mention this is because a lot of people for every good reason you can think of want to make money online. I know that’s why I’m doing this. Becoming a virtual assistant requires a certain amount of commitment from your part. I feel like I need to remind everyone out there that by offering these services that you’re not only creating a business that you love and that allows you to have free time, you’re also working with other business owners that want the same thing. They are essentially paying you to give them more free time.
You should know that you are going to have a high level of responsibility in the growth of not only your business but countless other entrepreneurs as they become your clients. It’s integral that you actually want to do this. Some people just end up becoming a virtual assistant because it’s similar to the relationship between employee and employer. They know they can trade their time for money. It’s something they know they can get money from.
Do what you love.
That’s all well and good, but if you don’t truly love this, I encourage you to find something else that you actually like doing. Virtual assistant life can be really hard at times. I don’t want you to put too much effort into building a business that six to twelve months down the line you’re just going to give up on. That’s a lot of wasted time, money, and energy. Plus, you may disappoint clients who were hoping to work with someone long-term. Make sure you actually want this, to become a virtual assistant.
The thing is, if you truly follow your passion, you’ll be able to do whatever you want. If that’s making slime videos and putting them on YouTube, you just need to be dedicated to it. Unfortunately, that takes patience. You can become an online entrepreneur, just make sure you actually want this. Make sure that it’s actually something you’ll love doing.
This leads me into practical advice for virtual assistants part three. Come back tomorrow to read it here.
