01 Sep How to Start a Freelance or Virtual Assistant Business
Ready to start your Virtual Assistant business? You may think it’s easier said than done – but, don’t get overwhelmed with thoughts of how to get started. It’s been done, and you are so able to do it too!
It’s not magic! There’s are tons of info resources out there that can help you get started and scale. The problem is, is that some of these tools / tips can leave you more confused that before you started, and they can miss pertinent info that can leave you open to lost opportunities.
Well – If you have the know how – you do! It’s not about taking a ‘giant leap’ or creating something that will take years to get off the ground. It’s about taking practical steps of deliberate action to manifest your goals.
You don’t need a MBA, nor a degree or years of managerial experience. Some of the greatest minds are the typical ‘worker bee’s’ getting things done everyday for the organizations they support with the skills that are in very high demand.
Let’s take a look at a few things that can help.
Change your mindset
Take Inventory of what you know & what you like to do
Life is a Learning Library – stay committed to learning
It’s already been done – now it’s your turn
Change your mindset:
This is the biggest learning curve you’ll be thrown, as the mind is a powerful tool. The way you think about what you know and how you ‘see’ yourself has allot to do with your drive forward, how you see yourself and how you perceive future success.
When it comes to “your drive forward” you have to know yourself and what it takes to keep you motivated. It’s more than just tapping into your ‘why factor’ on your reason for partaking in this adventure. Are you a permission seeker? Someone who needs to be told what to do and how to do it? A visionary stuck in research mode? Or someone with a small support network that you absolutely need to vent to at every stage of your business development?
Understand this – When you choose to participate in the entrepreneurial journey, YOU need to strive forward by making the decision to do so. Your network can only encourage you so far, your mentor can only tell you what to do, so far – YOU need to decide how you will keep yourself focused deliberately.
