From my first day as officially being open for business, I have found that my Virtual Assistant colleagues are friendly, helpful, caring and all-around good people!
There are some cut-throat industries out there where people keep the keys to their business success locked up tight but I haven’t found that in the VA world. In fact, it’s been quite the opposite. People are willing to share their knowledge with you.
Virtual Assistants can often relate to each other’s stories whether they arrived here due to a lay off, the need to escape the nine-to-five rat race or a desire to be home with their children. We know how it feels and want others to experience what we have.
The other great thing is that there are Virtual Assistants who specialize in everything from bookkeeping to social media. You’re sure to find someone out there in our industry that can help you with a specific problem.
So, don’t be afraid to ask. I know that there are always a few bad apples in the bunch, but don’t let that stop you from connecting with other Virtual Assistants. Reach out and get help from someone who has been where you are.
How do you find your fellow VAs, you ask? Social media is a great starting point! There are tons of VA forums out there as well as virtual industry events.
For example, the VA Virtuoso Seminar series starts in just a couple of weeks! I will be joining 19 other fabulous VAs in order to share information and tricks of the trade with other Virtual Assistants.
Oh, and it’s really affordable. Want more info? Click here for the details. Why don’t you join us?
