Niche Myth: Expand Your Foundation, Find Balance, Increase Earnings

Thursday, August 06, 2015



One of the key things I've learnt over the years to having a consistent growing income is to increase the earning potential of my VA business, either through passive income, multiple income streams, scalability or simply being able to improve my skill set and expand what I'm able to offer. By having that kind of open flexibility with my services, clients will almost always come to me first and ask if I'm able to help them with a project or task, before they begin looking elsewhere. I can then either confirm I'm able, or pass the client onto a more suitable service provider.

My Content Curators Dropped A Virtual Bomb This Week

Friday, July 24, 2015



This week Swayy.co, my content curators dropped a bomb and said they'd merged with another company, and were closing down my content curation system which I absolutely love - and share with often, with just a few days notice. This left me in a position of having only a few days to figure out where I was going to curate my clients' content from. Eek!

Agency or Virtual Assistant? The Decision Making Process For Clients

Friday, July 17, 2015



Whilst sat in my office at 1am last night with my husband, I was having an interesting conversation with him (actually I was talking at him a bit but he's a good listener) about agencies and VAs and the differences between them. He said to me, 'you should be recording this' and whilst in all honesty I couldn't be bothered at that time, I thought I'd share some of these thoughts in a blog post.

A Digital Nomad In Crisis #GREXIT

Wednesday, July 08, 2015



Travelling or living permanently abroad for me is a blessing, one I'm thankful for every day, but you have to learn to take the rough with the smooth. We've been in and around Crete now for a while, we absolutely love it here, and even after a stint last year in my favourite location, Egypt, we decided to return back here to the island. But has Paradise fallen?

The Doctor or The Dinner Lady - Who's More Successful?

Thursday, June 25, 2015



How we define success is very much shaped by society. I remember when I was young, all I could focus on was career, independence - Income... I thought success was directly related to my bank balance, my home and its contents and my car. On a mentorship call I was holding with a group of people on my Rockstar programme I recently used the analogy of the Doctor and the Dinner Lady, I wanted to share this with you.

Potential Clients Don't Seem To Want My Services - Do I Change Them?

Thursday, June 18, 2015



Being a Virtual Assistant is a challenge in the current age of technology. On the one hand we're spoilt for choice with all the systems and services we can potentially offer clients, because online technology is booming, and on the other hand we can't learn everything, which may cause us to feel like we're alienating a client base.

My Client Is Asking Me For Things That Don't Make Any Sense

Thursday, June 11, 2015



If you've been a virtual assistant for a while now, you've probably at some point or another had a client delegate tasks to you that don't make sense. This isn't uncommon, and it really depends on the client, and their level of experience with the tasks they happen to be delegating. But do you quietly conform knowing something isn't quite right, or do you say something?

My Online World Turned Upside Down - By ActiveCollab

Thursday, June 04, 2015



This week I've literally had my online world turned upside down by the release of ActiveCollab 5 (as you can tell project management in VMF for my clients means a lot to me, so this really isn't me overdramatising, it's really a big thing that I want to share with you).

If You Want More Business, Try Doing What I Do

Wednesday, May 27, 2015



I made a vow to myself when I launched my new website design in April, that I would always bring you truth from my experiences on this blog, no matter how weird or bizarre or hard to swallow it may be, and this is one of those times where I would of thought, "Nah, nobody want's to hear that" - but actually I think you need to.
