7 Reasons I Love Being a Virtual Assistant
Sometimes it seems you can't pick up a magazine or book today or even turn on the TV without someone talking about the Virtual Assistant Industry. I couldn't be happier. We deserve this. Virtual assistants have worked long and hard to gain the recognition they are getting today and I know it's only the beginning. I'd love to share 7 reasons why I love being a Virtual Assistant. I'm also posting it on my blog and would welcome you to post some of the reasons you enjoy being a VA too.
1- My clients: I get to work with some amazing clients and help them achieve success.
2- Control over my businesss: I love to know that I have the power to make it grow and am an active part of its success. I get to choose the clients I want to work with, the hours I want to work, and most importantly I get to say no as well if something isn't a good fit.
3- The ability to be part of the VA Industry: I've been blessed to be part of the VA Industry since its inception. Every year I get to see it reach more media and get more attention. It's wonderful to see and I'm proud to be a a part of it.
4- To have the opportunity to use my skills and talents every day: I love what I do and every day I get to wake up and do it again. If you talk to most entrepreneurs they will acknowledge passion is one of the most important aspects to success.
5- There is always something new. I'm an A Type Personality so I definitely need a challenge. I love the thrill of new clients, regular clients that have become good friends, new challenges, and also having the opportunity to make a difference in someone's business and success.
6- To get to coach others and help them achieve success: In addition to publicity and marketing, I also do virtual assistant coaching. I love to be able to take a VA with just a dream and turn it into a successful business.
7- I get to write and being a virtual assistant allows me to do just that. Whether it's writing a press release, a media kit, or a new book, my career choice has allowed me to write. And I love it!
Owning your own virtual assistant business is simply the BEST. Stop by my blog and tell me why you enjoy doing it. '
