3 Best Pieces of Advice I Received When I Was First Starting

Today, I want to share three of the most valuable pieces of advice I received from my clients when I started my VA business. Let’s dive in!

#1 Charge Your Worth

Pricing can be tricky for many in this industry. It’s a mix of science, art, and psychology. One client made it clear to me that pricing isn’t one-size-fits-all; it’s about understanding what you need to support your lifestyle or meet your goals. This advice pushed me to determine my baseline rate and embrace charging what I’m worth. It’s all about mindset.

#2 Stay in Your Own Lane

Comparing ourselves to others can be detrimental, especially at different stages in our journey. Focusing on our unique strengths is vital rather than getting caught up in what others are doing. Stay true to yourself and your path.

#3 Marketing Is Repeating Yourself

Have you ever felt like you’re saying the same things over and over again in your marketing? Well, you should be! A marketing coach once reminded me that repetition is critical. People resonate with different voices, so you must consistently share your perspective and spin on things. Remember, marketing is about awareness, not sales.

Wrapping it up, these three pieces of advice have been game-changers for me and my business. Charging what you’re worth, staying focused on your path, and embracing repetition in marketing can transform your journey as a VA. Thanks for reading and I’ll catch you next time!
