You are a Virtual Assistant at the bursting point in your business
Virtual Assistants (VAs), those unseen angels who do a variety of tasks for their clients from a home-based office, are struggling; not so much from a lack of business as from an over-abundance of business. Yes, just like in any profession, there are new VAs out there who are just getting started and are struggling to find clients and get their business off the ground. However many VAs are reaching a critical point in their businesses – having too much business coming their way – which in itself brings a whole new set of challenges. As the founder of an online recruitment and matching service for VAs, I’ve worked with many hundreds of VAs over the years and have seen a common journey in the growth of their businesses:
- VA gets a few clients and some good experience under their belt
- VA’s clients refer them to other potential clients (of which there are always plenty!)
- VA says yes to these new clients and soon has a full business
- VA’s business becomes “uncomfortably full.
They are getting so much work from various clients that it is hard to keep up (and life all of a sudden is super stressful)
This is what I call the bursting point. If you’re a VA who’s even remotely capable, and you haven’t experienced the bursting point yet, trust me, you will. Any VA who has the hot skills that clients are looking for will very soon be full-to-bursting with clients.
It’s like eating a huge meal at Thanksgiving; you are so full you could burst, but the food is so good you just can’t say no!
