Do You Say NO Enough?

Do You Say NO Enough?

No Is a Complete Sentence!

As a former employee, saying No to clients was difficult for me to do. I was afraid of getting “fired” or reprimanded for saying I did not agree or did not want to do something.

Ah..the beauty of being your own boss is that you can say “NO” anytime… but it does take some practice to do it with confidence.

Do you say NO enough in your business?

This week’s VLOG is all about the art of saying “NO” – enjoy!

Don’t Call Yourself a VA

Don’t Call Yourself a VA

Don’t Call Yourself a Virtual Assistant

How many of you have introduced yourself as a “Virtual Assistant” and either you get the deer in the headlights look OR the person you are chatting with thinks you are an Administrative Assistant? Me!

The term “Virtual Assistant” is a very broad & generic title. Either people don’t know what one is or they assume to know exactly what you do.

Both are problems in my opinion!

In this week’s video blog I talk about a few different ideas for introducing yourself to prospects without using the title “Virtual Assistant“.

Thanks for listening.

What Is A Virtual Assistant?

What’s a Virtual Assistant?

There are many misconceptions about what a Virtual Assistant is and what they are not.

One of the biggest ones I see is that Virtual Assistants are “employees” or “hourly workers“. Both of these are false.

In this week’s video blog I talk about a few of these misconceptions as well as what a Virtual Assistant is.

How Many Clients?

How Many Clients?

How Many Clients?

It seems like each week I am asked the same question…

“How many clients do I need?”

It is not the number of clients you need – it is the number of hours you need to bill.

In this video I talk about the two numbers everyone should know before starting their VA journey:

  1. how much they need to earn to keep the lights on
  2. what is their hourly rate?

It is important to track your time to be sure that you are billing enough hours. If you’re not – then you need more clients. If you are billing more then it might be time to get some additional help.

Enjoy the video and thanks for listening.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Do you know how many hours you need to bill in a week or month?
