The Path That Led Me To Being A Virtual Assistant
I’m a serial entrepreneur.
Now, I know that sounds a bit eerie, but let me explain before you start assuming that I’m like Jason from Friday the 13th.
OMG guys, this is starting to give me an idea for a Halloween costume! Stay tuned for that ;)
Anyway, when I was 19, I started my first business, Got Strings, a string ensemble for weddings and special events in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Music will always hold a special place in my heart, as will Got Strings, but I knew that it wasn’t something that I wanted to do for the rest of my business career.
A few years later, I became a distributor for SeneGence International, a cosmetics and skincare company. It’s such an empowering company to work for, and I’ve met so many amazing people with that gig. But again, it wasn’t a forever job.
I believe that these two business ventures actually led me down the path of becoming a virtual assistant and starting yet another business: VA for a day.
I came up with the idea for VA for a day because I was actually looking for a virtual assistant in my other businesses. I wanted someone who could come in and answer emails and complete other small tasks on a one-day basis. But every VA that I talked to didn’t offer daily rates.
>>I saw a need and decided to do something about it.<<
The idea for VA for a day sprouted on a Thursday, and it was fully bloomed by the following Monday, when I had a logo, website, and a full menu of services.
Oh yeah, I also had not one, not two, but THREE paying clients!
It turns out that there were other entrepreneurs that were looking for a project-based virtual assistant just like I was!
I really hit the jackpot with VA for a day. I truly believe that being a virtual assistant is my calling. I’m efficient, organized, and relationship-oriented, so working with other entrepreneurs within their businesses gives me *all the feels*.
Another plus is that all of my prior knowledge with Got Strings and SeneGence really helped to get me started. I’m so grateful that these businesses led me to VA for a day, where I get to enjoy the many perks of owning a virtual business, including:
>>I can choose my own hours (Sleep in on a Wednesday morning? Sure, why not?!)
>>I have the ability to work from anywhere (Whether I’m on my porch in Nashville or visiting my family in New Jersey, I can still get shit done...WITHOUT having to ask a boss for time off)
>>I can pick and choose projects (Being my own boss, I can decide how to fill up my schedule)
