Becoming a Virtual Assistant is not an overnight, get rich quick, or sometimes very lucrative experience…at first. And sometimes life intrudes – just like in a regular business environment. Here is a quick glimpse of my life experiences from the past week and how I am trying to bounce back –

My two year old caught the flu – it was a miserable experience. She only wanted mommy – so guess who got NO work completed?

The price of owning your own business is that when life intrudes – your business sometimes has to take a backseat. Be prepared – as much as you can be. Have a little money set back, if possible, to cover for losses. Search out long term clients so that you can build a relationship that allows for even more flexibility.

I lost a couple of contracts – which stinks – but that probably would have happened in a traditional business setting as well.

On the plus side – In the last two days I’ve completed 2 document edits for a law firm, conceptualized 3 blog posts and am getting ready to write one more, created 2 Facebook ads – and a brochure.

My point is that luckily, I can rebound from that short term cash flow issue. Which makes being my own boss fantastic.

If you are looking to start your own virtual assisting business – or need a virtual assistant – keep me in mind – because it’s business as usual over here!
