Like many women, your day job brings in a steady income that your family relies on in order to live the life to which you’re accustomed. You’re skilled in your profession and you undoubtedly work hard at your job. There’s comfort in having a job with a dependable income. That comfort allows you to make financial decisions based on your current income—having children, buying a house, buying a car, or travelling. Unfortunately, a hard reality of life is that many are faced with the hardship of losing their job, and, as a result, the comfort that steady income brings. We all believe and hope this couldn’t be us. Unfortunately, it can happen to anyone for any number of reasons. Think about it: What would you do if you lost your day job?
Luckily, in a world where technology allows us to communicate all over the world in an instant, the opportunities for building a successful home based business online is a reality. Losing your day job can be devastating, but you don’t have to let it shatter you. Starting a home based business as a virtual assistant can be your answer to finding a dependable income where you don’t have to ever worry about losing your job again.
Building a Home Based Business: Where do you start?
1. Empower Yourself
Instead of drowning in your setback of losing your day job, think of this as another hurdle in life that you have to jump over. Believe in yourself. Jump with pride, dignity, and grace. Let your inner strength sing loud. Trust that you are enough. Believe in your ability, your strength, your motivation, and your intelligence. You can build a successful home based business that allows you to live the life you’ve always envisioned. You can create your own success, and the first step to reaching your goals is believing in yourself.
2. Assess Your Skills
The amazing thing about creating your own home based business is that you’re already equipped with the skills you need in order to succeed. Think about the tasks you completed in your day job in which you excelled. Were you good at answering emails, answering phone calls, writing, marketing, etc.? Offer those services to clients. When first creating your business, start with what you know. You can always learn new skills as your business grows. When you’re first starting out, don’t stress yourself out by offering a lot of services that are brand new to you.
3. Do What You Enjoy
As a virtual assistant, your business is anything you want it to be. Therefore, you can pick the types of services you provide your clients. If you don’t like completing a specific task, you don’t have to offer that service. Running your own business is your opportunity to enjoy what you’re doing while making the steady income you need. As you start your home based business as a virtual assistant, it’s a blank canvas and you can paint it however you desire. You hold the brush and you’re in control; therefore, do what you enjoy.
4. Pick Your Clients
The best part of creating a home based business where you’re the boss is exactly that—you’re the boss. Will you ever lose a client? Sure. Don’t think of that as a setback. Think of it as a way to explore another opportunity that will lead you to more success. On the other hand, you get to decide whether you will accept a client. Unlike the corporate world where you likely were forced to work with many people you didn’t exactly mesh with, in your home based business as a virtual assistant you don’t have to be bogged down by anyone you don’t enjoy working with. Since you’re in control of every aspect of your business, you don’t have to get stuck working with people you don’t enjoy.
In your home based business as a virtual assistant, you will thrive. You can work as much as you want and whenever you want. You have the power to make decisions that drives your success. You are in control. You are the boss. Therefore, you can set yourself on a path to live the life you’ve always imagined and more.
As the saying goes, “Every setback is an opportunity for a comeback.” When you lose your job, you are in control of your comeback. Empower yourself, believe in yourself, and thrive!
