Are You A Virtual Trapeze Artist Or A VA? For Your Clients’ Sake, I Hope It’s The Latter!

Virtual trapeze artist..what? I’m sure you’re wondering how I’ve come up with this one. So here’s the story: There are certain things I feel you must have in place BEFORE you take on a real client (not family or friends). These are the things that show that you are a professional and not someone flying by the seat of their pants after they get a client (aka a virtual trapeze artist).

How To Be A Pro And Not A Virtual Trapeze Artist

  • Know your baseline rate.
  • Know what services you’re offering.
  • Know how you’re selling your services (package, retainer, etc).
  • Know how you get paid.
  • And more.

I’ve seen so many people on social media asking these basic business questions and it got me thinking: What are they thinking? It comes down to this, do you want to be seen as a professional and attract professional clients that pay premium rates? If so, then invest the time to set up your business systems first.
