Cash in on Your Strengths and Interests

As a virtual assistant you develop your niche—the skills and services you offer to clients—based on your inherent strengths. When you focus on skills in which you’re already proficient, the work is naturally more enjoyable. Does that mean that you won’t have to learn anything new or improve your skills? Like any professional, you will continually fine tune your niche to attract and maintain high paying clients. However, by developing your niche around the skills that you already excel in and enjoy, you inevitably start your business off with a success.

What if you don’t enjoy the skills you’re proficient at? Then you don’t have to specialize in them! This is YOUR business so you’re in control. There are literally hundreds of skills entrepreneurs need and are willing to pay for. Don’t spend your time and energy working on tasks you dislike. Instead, focus on services that you find interesting and fulfilling.

Earn Money from Home … and Watch that Income Grow

As a virtual assistant, you earn money from home on your own schedule. Over time, you have opportunities to earn more and more without increasing your hours. You attract higher paying clients and raise your rates as you gain experience and expertise within your niche. Yes, even virtual assistants get raises. In fact, you get to choose when you raise your rates. As your own boss, you don’t have to wait for someone else to decide if you get a raise. As you become more versed in all the opportunities out there for virtual assistants, you can grow you niche to encompass services that you may not even know exist. It’s an ever-changing world with endless opportunities.

Enjoy Flexible Hours, Schedule, and Workplace

The mainstream workforce can leave women feeling stressed out, rushed, and out of control.  Imagine a work environment where you are not confined to a set schedule or a specific location. Virtual assistants have the luxury of choosing when and where you work—you’re the boss. You choose to work when you are most productive and how many hours a week you work. Not to mention, since you don’t have to meet face-to-face with clients, you choose your own professional attire. You have the flexibility of working around the schedules of your family, your travels, your appointments, or the other endeavors in which you invest your time. You have freedom and choice which makes your job exhilarating and rewarding.

Choose Your Clients

All around us we have to deal with people who are less than ideal. Challenging people are everywhere—in every business and from all walks of life—but, as the person in control of your business, you get to choose your clients. If a client doesn’t respect you, drop him. If a client doesn’t pay you on time, part ways. If a client’s philosophy doesn’t mesh with yours, tell her you’re heading in a different direction. But when you find a client that you mesh with, you will enjoy every moment of working with her. Your hard work will be valued, respected, and incredibly fulfilling.
