Will Your Virtual Assistant Business Be Successful?

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

First of all we must define success — thefreedictionary.com says that success is, “The achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted.”

My definition of success is how happy I am, and this is directly linked to my inner me telling me what I desire in life. I took me a while to realise that I don’t desire millions of pounds, fancy cars and a penthouse suite in Manhattan. But what I do desire is enough money to go where I want to travel, enough time to spend watching my children grow up, while ensuring that I have some sort of ongoing and comfortable financial stability for daily living.

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Every really good VA will one day reach their capacity – there are only so many hours in a day, and there is only so much you can do in these hours. Often, as your clients’ businesses expand, so will your hours, and with new clients coming in, this could potentially leave a lot of additional hours which you won’t be able to fulfill on your own.

This year I made another move, true to the digital nomad that I am, and it was from one country to another.

How Digital Nomads Can Cost Effectively Set Up A Virtual Business

Monday, September 13, 2010

Transcription: Hi! This is Michelle for VA Live.TV. Today I want to discuss with you how you can set up your business to specifically deal with your target market even though you could be anywhere in the world. I faced this problem when I started my business because I started my business when I was in the Middle East. So, I was out in Egypt and I predominantly decided that I wanted to deal with people in the UK because I’m British. But, the problem being is that I was in Egypt and my location didn’t allow me to actually set myself up to be in the UK. So, I checked out a few Virtual Offices and different places like that and I found them to be quite expensive, especially in England if you’re looking for an all-in-one service, which does call answering and, you know, will receive your mail and that type of thing. It really didn’t work out too well for me cost-wise. So, I decided that there must be a more cost-effective solution for me to do this. So, I have a few tips for you today on how you can set up your virtual office and it can be from anywhere in the world, in any country.

How To Decide What To Charge. Don’t Let Your Rates, Let You Down

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

When I was just starting up, I had a decision to make on what I was going to charge. Now this was quite difficult for me, since the services I was offering, while I knew I could do them and do them well, I had never ‘actually’ done them online before. I was new to the virtual scene, I was used to the office environment and also a fixed salary, I also had the rather outdated employee mindset, so the idea I had in my head, was that I would price myself as cheap as I could possibly go, without really considering the profit I would be making and how this would effect me long-term. I just wanted clients, and I wanted them fast… My brain told me to be as competitive as I could be in price, and then everyone would come to me.
