At least five times a week, I get a phone call or email from a new Virtual Assistant looking for some personal guidance in building her Virtual Assistant practice. As much as I want to see newcomers to the profession succeed, I’m only one person. Between my own clients and business, the organization I run, and my own personal life, the demands for my attention anymore are great, and I just don’t have the personal time to share with strangers that I used to.
Instead, what I have done is to build the Virtual Assistance Chamber of Commerce. It’s through this organization that I give back to the Virtual Assistant community. Much of the information we provide on our webpages is intended to help guide newcomers gain a deeper understanding of the industry, its history and its true value proposition. We offer free monthly teleseminars which are open to all (you don’t have to be a member to attend). Our forum is where I give of my personal coaching and mentoring time to members. And, Virtual Assistant business forms, templates, processes and guides built on my own successful personal practice and proprietary information can be purchased through our Virtual Assistant Business Forms store.
For those of you who have called or written to me, please don’t take it personal if you don’t hear from me. But do avail yourself of the information on the Virtual Assistance Chamber of Commerce website. Keep checking back as we’ve got lots more in store that will be shared over the coming months. And if you have more specific business questions, submit them to the Gritty VA column here at firstname.lastname@example.org
To your success!
