Why It Pays to Be a Narrowly Niched Virtual Assistant

virtual assistantAs a virtual assistant, you may feel pressure to know how to do everything. Clients seem to have a wide array of tasks that they hire virtual assistants to complete. To make yourself marketable, it may seem like you need to provide services to meet all your clients’ needs.

However, when you try to focus on too many services, you end up producing lower quality work and, ultimately, don’t serve your clients to the best of your ability.

It is important to narrow your niche— the services you provide to clients—to ensure that you’re producing high-quality work that will help you build a successful business.

As you build your business, it pays to be a narrowly niched virtual assistant.

Here’s why:

Demonstrates that You’re an Expert

When you’re a narrowly niched virtual assistant, it shows that you’re truly an expert. If you try to provide too many services, you can’t truly be an expert at all of them. You may know a little about all the services, but you won’t be an expert at any of them. For example, playing an instrument takes a lot of time and practice to master. If a person plays five instruments, can she be an expert at all of them? She might be good at all of them, but focusing on one allows her to truly master the instrument.

Allows You to Develop Professionally

Narrowing your niche gives the opportunity to focus on the services you provide to truly be an expert. When you’re just starting out as a virtual assistant, you may not start out as an expert. However, narrowing your niche allows you to really learn those skills and become an expert. As your business grows, you may need to take training or seminars to ensure that you are producing the best product for your client. You can take classes or seminars to develop and sharpen your skills. Because you’re a narrowly niched virtual assistant, you’re able to truly focus on the services you provide.

Helps You Stand Out

For clients who are looking for a virtual assistant who will consistently produce high-quality work and truly be an asset to their business, they seek out narrowly niched virtual assistants. Why? They understand the value of a virtual assistant who is truly an expert. While they may be able to pay a virtual assistant who is more broadly niched less, they will choose you because they know you will help them achieve their goals.

Ensures You Get Paid for Your Expertise

By narrowing your niche, you are marketable to clients who truly understand the value of the services you provide. They know they need the services and they’ll understand what they’re worth. Therefore, you will attract quality clients who are willing to pay you what you’re worth. Those clients will appreciate the quality work that you provide. Narrowing your niche allows you to raise your rates because you have invested in yourself, built your skills, and produce high-quality work.

You Get to Do What You Really Enjoy

When determining your niche, start with what you enjoy. If you provide a service you don’t like, you’ll be miserable. As a virtual assistant and the owner of your own business, you have complete freedom over the services you provide. Therefore, by narrowing your niche, you’re able to pick services that you like doing and that keeps you motivated. By specializing in a few services that you enjoy, you’ll build a successful business that you love.

Being a narrowly niched virtual assistant ensures that you will attract clients who value the quality of your work. Doing so also guarantees that you will achieve your goals and love what you do.

Seven Behaviors of a Productive Virtual Assistant

 

virtual assistant

As a virtual assistant, it can be difficult to avoid distractions that hinder your productivity. It’s easy to get caught up doing household work or other activities that eat up your time and leave you scrambling to get things done.

Boosting your productivity means that you spend less time overwhelmed and stressed out because you’re more efficient with the time you’ve established to work.

 Increase your productivity by establishing these behaviors:

1. Know When You Work Best

As a virtual assistant and having the luxury to work from home, you are not confined to traditional work hours. Therefore, you can decide when you work best. Work during the times that you feel most productive and have the most energy.

2. Don’t Multitask

Multitasking stifles productivity. When you multitask, your mind is spread too thin and you can’t give your full attention to the tasks at hand.  Instead, when you focus on a single task, you produce much higher quality work more efficiently.

3. Make ONE To-Do List

Instead of wasting energy trying to check off tasks from multiple to-do lists, make one list as opposed to having separate lists for each client or each day. By consolidating everything into one list, you know exactly where to look to figure out what you need to do. You save time by not having to search for specific tasks that need to be completed for different clients. Additionally, prioritize that list to ensure that you’re completing the most important items first.

4. Be Self-Aware

Know your weaknesses. To increase your productivity and effectiveness as a virtual assistant, implement organizational systems that counteract your weaknesses. If you tend to spend too much time on a task trying to achieve perfection, set a timer so you know when to move on. If you tend to get distracted by checking email, set specific times (and stick to them) during the day to respond to your emails.

5. Don’t Put Things Off

Be sure to give yourself enough time to meet your deadlines. Give yourself enough time to produce quality work. That way, if something unexpected arises, you’ll be able to effectively meet your deadlines without feeling overwhelmed or stressed out.

6. Plan Your Day the Night Before

Prepare yourself the night before for what you need to tackle the next day. By doing so, you’ll no longer need to worry about forgetting things. You also know how to prioritize your time and you can plan to get the dreaded or difficult tasks done first. This way, when you begin work the next day, you know exactly what to start on first without wasting any time.

7. Organize at End of the Day

Save time and avoid procrastination by organizing and cleaning your workspace at the end of your day. By doing so, you begin the next day with a fresh space with everything in place to begin the next day.

As you establish behaviors and find strategies that help you be more productive as a virtual assistant, it’s helpful to learn from others who have been in your shoes.

Tips to Overcome Disappointment as a Virtual Assistant

virtual assistantAs a virtual assistant, the expectations you have for your business are mirror those that you have for yourself. You are your business. Therefore, when things don’t work out as you anticipate, it’s hard to take.

When there’s a breakdown in your expectations, disappointment is a normal human reaction. Disappointment floods you with anger, frustration, and sadness and can leave you feeling completely defeated.

However, as a virtual assistant, disappointment does not mean you’re defeated or that you’ve failed. Instead, it gives you an opportunity to see a new perspective and start again.

When you deal with disappointment as a virtual assistant, consider the following:

Take Time to Process

When dealing with disappointment, it’s important to give yourself time to process. Acknowledge your feelings and give yourself permission to really feel.

In a time of disappointment, don’t make rash decisions. Instead, ask yourself why you’re disappointed. Think about it. Struggle through it.

Remember that it’s not a race to just get over it. Give yourself time to feel all the emotions you’re experiencing. Then, when you’re ready to move on, you can truly let go of the disappointment and focus on achieving your goals.

Remember It’s Not Personal

You are the heart of your business; therefore, disappointment hits extremely hard. So much of you is invested in your work as a virtual assistant. When things don’t turn out as expected, it can feel very personal.

However, business is business. It’s not personal. In business, people make decisions based on what is best for the business. Decisions are not based on someone else’s feelings.

When you feel disappointed by something in your virtual assistant business, you may resort to blaming yourself. It conjures up those feelings of not being good enough and feeling like nothing ever goes your way.

However, when you blame yourself, it’s like looking through a microscope. The problem seems huge and your perspective is limited to a focused and enlarged view of the problem. This view is not a true representation of the problem or why you feel disappointed. To get a clearer perspective, you need to broaden your scope and allow yourself to see the whole picture.

Use Disappointment as an Opportunity to Self-Reflect

Because disappointment typically stems from a breakdown of our expectations, it’s an opportunity to self-reflect. Think about your expectations: Were they realistic? Were they too specific? Or not specific enough?

Rather than having expectations, set goals for your business. Establish a plan to achieve your goals. Be flexible and forgiving. Expecting that you won’t experience challenges along the way. However, when you do, you can adjust your plan to overcome those struggles.

Reflect on how you can improve yourself. Consider how you can better communicate to others. What can you do to avoid disappointment in the future?

Take time to think about everything you are grateful for. Gratitude gives you hope. Focusing your mindset on the positive reminds you that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Things will get better.

Really take the time to learn from your disappointments. By doing so, you will learn valuable information about yourself that will set you on the right path towards achieving your goals.

Take Action

Instead of stewing in the disappointment, use the knowledge you gain from self-reflection to make a plan to move forward.

Set new goals. Explore new strategies. Instead of letting your disappointment set you back, use the situation to empower you.

Allow your disappointment to provide you with new insight and a new, better path to follow.

Disappointment does not equal defeat. As you overcome your disappointment, you can evaluate your expectations and fine tune your goals. You can look through a broader lens to see a new perspective that resets your path and gets you closer to achieving your goals.

Often, to overcome disappointment, it’s helpful to learn from someone who has walked in your shoes. To learn more about how I can help you achieve your goals, apply here for a free MORE Clients MORE Profits Breakthrough Session with me now.

Focus on YOU to Grow Your Virtual Assistant Business

virtual assistant business

When you spread yourself too thin, it’s easy to lose sight of your purpose. Life gets busy. There’s so much to juggle—family, friends, household, and your business—and, without even realizing it, you forget about the things that keep you happy and functioning.

Therefore, as you build your virtual assistant business, it’s essential that you focus on yourself to maintain your health, your happiness, and your success.

5 Way to Focus on You While Growing Your Virtual Assistant Business:

1. Take Care of Yourself

You are the crux of your business. Therefore, if you don’t do what needs to be done to keep yourself mentally and physically healthy, you and your business will suffer. Make sure you delegate time each day to do things that keep you in the best shape—mentally and physically. Walk, start a hobby, make time for family and friends, or set a personal goal to do something you’ve never done before. Do anything that keeps you energized and focus so you don’t burn out.

2. Maintain a Positive Attitude

As Winston Churchill once said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” Your attitude is one thing that you can control. You have the choice of finding the positive or negative in things. If you focus on the negative, your world will be negative. However, when you focus on the positive, you open a world of possibilities.

3. Prioritize

It’s important to find balance in life. You’re always going to have a to-do list of a million tasks. Start with the most pressing or important items on your list and prioritize them. Also, be sure to make yourself a priority. Take care of yourself. Do things you enjoy.

4. Be Flexible

Understand that you can’t plan for everything. Perfection is not a goal; it’s an ideal. Therefore, when an unexpected problem arises, take initiative to solve the problem. Figure out a new way or ask for help. Don’t let the unexpected set you back. Create a new path and focus on your goals.

5. Have a Growth Mindset

Believe in yourself and your abilities. You can develop your inherent qualities and skills to build a highly successful virtual assistant business. Recognize that you can always grow and advance, and, with some hard work, you can achieve any goal you set for yourself.

Always remind yourself why you choose this path and keep your focus on your goals. Don’t lose sight of the activities outside of your business that keep you motivated and at peace. When you are a well-rounded person, you’re able to give your all to build a successful virtual assistant business.

Take time for self-reflection to ensure that you’re on the path to accomplishing your goals while taking care of yourself.

5 Challenges You May Encounter as a Virtual Assistant and How to Overcome Them

virtual assistantBecoming a virtual assistant opens your world to so many opportunities that you don’t get to enjoy in the same way when you work in a traditional job. You have the freedom to work from anywhere, set your own hours, determine the services you’ll provide, and choose your clients.

However, like any career, there are challenges that virtual assistants face. Luckily, with some work and intentionality, you can overcome those challenges to build a highly successful business as a virtual assistant.

5 Challenges You May Face as a Virtual Assistant:

1. Not Asking for Help

There’s that old saying: “It takes a village to raise a child.”

In a sense, your virtual assistant business is like your child.

It can be challenging, unpredictable, confusing, and demanding. There may be times when you just want to throw in the towel, sit in the corner, and cry.

However, just like one would do with their child, you must pick yourself (and sometimes your pride) up, confront the challenge, and figure out a way to move forward.

The best way to find resolution when faced with struggles when building your virtual assistant business is to ask for help.

Seek out a coach who has achieved what you want to achieve. She has experienced the same feelings and tackled the same challenges, and her wisdom can help guide you to achieve your goals. Additionally, build a network. There are women out there who have built highly successful virtual assistant businesses and who are more than willing to help you.

You don’t have to figure out everything alone. Find your resources and use them.

2. Not Valuing Yourself

Your sense of self-worth can become a major struggle as you build your virtual assistant business.

As women, we sometimes allow our feelings and fears dictate how we run our business. You may feel like you’re not good enough, that you don’t know what you’re doing, or that you may never get an opportunity again. Because of these feelings, you allow others to push your boundaries and negotiate until you accept much less than you deserve.

You can never lose sight of the merit and value you bring to your clients.

You must hold firm to your rates and never accept less than you’re worth. The quality of service and expertise you provide demands that you are paid what you’re worth.

3. Fear of Failure

The women who have successful virtual assistant business are no different than you.

They’ve experience failure. They’ve faced challenges. They’ve struggled. They’ve felt like giving up.

But they found a way to rise above it. They took a different route, learned a new strategy, and asked for help.

As Franklin Roosevelt wisely stated, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

Fear gets in the way of your dreams. It stops you in your tracks and traps you. Fear prohibits you from living the life you imagine.

To overcome your fear, you must set goals and take baby sets to achieve those goals. Success doesn’t happen overnight. You may have to re-write your path a few times, but if you don’t let fear control you, your success is inevitable.

4. Overlooking Your Accomplishments

It’s much easier to get consumed by the struggles and challenges than it is to recognize your successes.

When you’re struggling, the negative seems to outweigh the positive.

Therefore, it’s important to acknowledge and celebrate even the smallest successes. Just by stopping for a few moments and reflecting on the work it took to accomplish, helps you take your challenges in stride. It helps keep your mindset positive and it keeps you motivated to keep going.

5. Balance of Work and Family

In your virtual assistant business, you will primarily work from home. Therefore, your to-do list can feel exponential.

It can be challenging to focus on your business while there are dishes in the sink and laundry to do. It’s easy to be distracted by the stress of running a household and caring for your family.

Consequently, it’s imperative that you prioritize your home and business life and stick to it.

Even though you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home, it’s important to set specific hours and set a specific place where you work. This allows you to focus on your business rather than your household tasks.

Just as you do when you work a traditional job, you need to find the right balance that works for you. Once you’ve established a routine, it will make your life much more enjoyable and you’ll accomplish goals you never thought possible.

Your Mindset Determines the Success of Your Virtual Assistant Business

Virtual Assistant businessAs you build your virtual assistant business, your mindset—your attitude about yourself and your abilities—has a tremendous effect on your success.

Why? As women, we are notoriously hard on ourselves.

If you believe you can’t do something, don’t have the right skills to build your business, or that you can’t be successful, where is your motivation to rise above the struggles or challenges? Or even celebrate your successes?

A negative mindset limits your ability to be successful and dulls any moment of success.

A positive mindset, on the other hand, allows you to continue to work hard to achieve your goals even when you may want to give up. It allows you to believe that you are enough, and that, even though you may not have all the answers, you can learn and grow to build a truly successful virtual assistant business.

Tips to Keep a Positive Mindset as You Grow Your Virtual Assistant Business:

Focus on Your Goals

Having goals for yourself and your business helps you focus on what matters. Goals ensure that you don’t lose sight of the big picture. As you work to achieve your goals, you’re able to focus on the small tasks along the way. As you achieve those tasks, you can experience little bits of success without feeling overwhelmed by your bigger goals. Your goals will help you prioritize and focus leaving you less likely to be thrown off track when struggles or challenges arise.

Remind Yourself of Your Accomplishments

Sometimes this is a real struggle. However, it is imperative to your success to keep your thoughts positive. Each day write down something you did well, that you found inspiring, or a success you experienced. Keep them in the jar and watch them add up. When you’re having a particularly difficult day, pull a few of them out to remind you of your accomplishments. This is a simple, yet effective way to keep your mind on the positive things in life rather than the struggles or challenges.

Understand Your Abilities

All of us have strengths and weaknesses—every single one of us. Just because you have a weakness doesn’t make you a failure and just because you’re good at something doesn’t mean you can’t grow in that area. There’s always room to learn and get better. It is important to understand your strengths and weaknesses. This knowledge allows you to know where to focus your energy and to develop your skills. By understanding your strengths and weaknesses, you can be honest with yourself instead of feeling like a failure when you make a mistake or don’t understand something.

In the hard times, remember that you’re not alone. We all have times of self-doubt and struggles. However, it’s your mindset and how you choose to act in times of struggle that can determine whether you succeed.

With a positive mindset, you will build a highly successful virtual assistant business. As someone who has built two successful business, I guide you on your path to success. Apply here for a free MORE Clients MORE Profits Breakthrough Session with me now.

Become a Virtual Assistant and Unlock Your Potential as Your Own Boss

become a virtual assistant

You’ve likely experienced the feeling of working extremely hard only to blend in with the crowd. When you work for a big company, you often end up supporting others without much appreciation or affirmation of the value you bring to the business.

If you’re in some way dissatisfied with your current employment situation, you likely feel trapped in a life that is unfulfilling.

However, when you become a Virtual Assistant, you unlock your freedom to control your career and your life.

How becoming a Virtual Assistant gives you full reigns as your own boss:

You’re an independent contractor.

Meaning that you build and run your own business. You provide services of your choosing to clients and are paid on a freelance basis. For some clients, you may work a specific number of hours each month and others you may work on projects as needed.

You’re in complete control.

When you become a Virtual Assistant, you’re in control of all aspects of your business. You build your business from the ground up. From the name of your business to your target market and the types of services you provide, you get to decide everything. You also have the power to grow your business or take it in a new direction. You can expand on your skills as you gain experience. Your business can evolve as you grow.

You set your own hours.

The ability to set your own hours frees your time making room in your life for the things that bring you happiness. You also have the luxury to choose the time of day you feel most productive. You’re able to adjust your work schedule around doctor appointments, errands, and lunch with friends. You can plan vacations without asking someone else for permission.

You have freedom of your location.

When you become a Virtual Assistant, as long as you have access to your computer and internet, you can literally work from wherever you want. You can work from the comfort of your own home or from a coffee shop. You can even work as you travel.

You decide who your clients are.

Part of working as an independent contractor means that you support other business owners and entrepreneurs achieve their goals. The ability to choose your clients gives you a lot of choice in how you grow your business. When you talk to potential clients, you have the power to decide whether you’ll work well with someone and if you’d enjoy working with them. If you feel you may not mesh with someone, you can choose not to work with that person.

You get to enjoy what you’re doing.

Because you’re in the driver’s seat, you get to decide what services you provide for clients. Therefore, you’re able to determine what services you’ll truly enjoy providing for clients and only offer those. As your own boss, you don’t have to worry about anyone delegating tasks that you don’t offer. Imagine getting to work every day doing something that helps others meet their goals, but that you also really enjoy doing.

You’re in charge of your success.

As a business owner and independent contractor, you are your business. Therefore, the success of the business rests on your shoulders. You get to decide what your definition of success is for you and your business and work hard to achieve that success.

Of course, while there are many perks to being your own boss, working for yourself can also have its own set of struggles that you must overcome. You must remain self-disciplined and push through challenges.

However, the sense of accomplishment and pride you’ll feel when you’re successful will make it all worth it. You can bring value to the world by doing what you love in a career that fits your lifestyle.
