There are two important personality traits needed in order to have a successful Virtual Assistant business where you work from home.
Those two traits are: Taking risks and being flexible.
To have a successful Virtual Assistant business, you must take risks.
Starting a new endeavor and leaving behind the security of your old job is scary. However, without taking that risk you remain stuck in the status quo. This is true with any change or transition.
In order to shift the same-ole-same-ole, you have to step outside of it. When you get out of your comfort zone, you open up your own possibilities.
Which is related to but not the same as taking risks. If taking the risk is the actual act of stepping outside of your comfort zone, then flexibility and openness are the mindset or belief system to make that possible.
Being flexible - and open - allows you to consider new opportunities, whether that be a new client or project. Being flexible means not being tied to the way you always do things, or the ways you always operate (think about that comfort zone again).
Instead, you leave your mind and heart open to change, adjustment, opportunities, transition, feedback, learning, and a whole bunch of other awesome things that offer you the space within your business to grow and develop.
Through both risk-taking and flexibility, you can build a virtual work-from-home business where your motto really could be “the sky's the limit.”
A successful virtual business where there is no ceiling and you can reach for the stars? Through your own rules? By being your own boss?
I’m sure you’re thinking, “She must be kidding.”
But, I’m not. Not in the slightest.
I have hundreds of students in my program learning how to sharpen these abilities.
Professional women (and a few men) have taken the risk to invest in themselves and leave their day jobs eventually. To pursue their dreams all through starting their own virtual businesses. Every one of them has had to be daring enough to take risks and be flexible about what lies ahead.
