I'm Proud to Say I'm a Virtual Assistant

I’M PROUD TO SAY I’M A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT by Diana Ennen

Long, long ago in a land far away (sorry, got carried away), Virtual Assistants were faced with the dilemma of convincing their clients that they were professionals and could do the work at home just as well, OR BETTER, than what was being done at the office. The illusion of a person sitting on a kitchen table with a word processor, soda can, papers spread across the table, had to be smashed. That was then and this is now.

Home-based businesses are now considered a norm and are highly respected as well. We have achieved the recognition and respect among not only our peers, but the professional world that we have long deserved. Technology, the internet, and a lot of hard work and proving our abilities has earned us the reputation that we have today. The reputation of Professional Virtual Assistant. A reputation that we can be proud of. A reputation that we should continually work to achieve and improve upon.

Our home-based offices are often like executive suites at the some of the best business offices in town. We have the latest equipment and we keep it up and running in good working order because we don’t want downtime. We stay connected to other VAs and associations so when new technology or new advancements become available, we are aware of them and can act accordingly. We decorate our offices according to our likes and needs. We value our clients and always want to go above and beyond what is required of us. Therefore, when you come to our home-office you will feel not only the professionalism of a qualified VA, but the personal touch of someone who is there to help make your business succeed.

We are proud, yes. We are virtual assistants who know that we can make a difference. We love what we do. Now if you still wonder if someone from home can do your work, just ask us. We’ll gladly tell you how we can. But don’t be surprised if we continue to tell you a lot more about not only that, but how we can do so much more for you and your business.

One of my clients is the keynote speaker for the IVAA 2009 conference! It's really exciting for the both of us!

I totally agree with you: I am proud to work in the virtual support business! We do more than VA but is virtual work 100%. I can say that one of the things i am particularly excited about, is the fact that i work with clients from different countries, with different cultures and work styles, something i didn't have to such an extend even when i worked for multinational companies

Hi

Thanks so much for commenting!

Congratulations Lisa ... Doesn't that rock! What an honor that is. I love IVAA.

Isn't it great to be able to work for those in different countries. Being virtual is definitely the best!

Thanks again for commenting! Hope you can stop by again soon.

Being a VA has opened so many doors for my own business; expanding my business boundaries. Working in an arena as broad as the internet means that our possibiities are truly limitless. It's been very satisfying meeting and providing services to the variety of businesspeople that come into my virtual office.

I also want to say, "Kudos to you, Diana!" You're a leader to so many virtual assistants. I've appreciated your books, e-zine, and the guidance you've shared in teleseminars.

Hi Ruth!

Great to hear from you! And thanks so much for your comments. That is always so great to hear. I just love our Industry and where it is today. I can't even imagine where we will be in 5 more years with such dynamic VAs around now.

And I loved those purple high heels of yours. Wasn't that a blast? (In case anyone missed it. -- http://www.vanetworking.com/highheelsday/index.html)

I miss my high heels. I needed that to remind me how I needed to get out there and do more networking locally.

Thanks again for stopping by!
