Are you stuck in a career that, for whatever reason, you just can’t stand?

Maybe your boss isn’t a good leader.

Perhaps the lack of communication makes it difficult to do your job efficiently. Maybe you don’t feel valued for your contribution to the company. Or possibly you’ve just outgrown your current career.

Luckily, a career as a Virtual Assistant or Virtual Expert® allows you to create your own business from the ground up, so you never have to go back to that J.O.B. you dislike.

Guess what. You can use your past negative job experiences to help shape your new business.

Here are 3 ways your negative job experiences can make you a better Virtual Assistant and Virtual Expert®:


1. You Know What You Enjoy

Sometimes it takes a bad experience to shed light on what you genuinely enjoy doing. Being able to identify what you don’t enjoy can have a beneficial impact while building your Virtual Assistant business.

A U.S. News article titled, “How Loving Your Job Helps You Succeed,” explains that doing what you love increases energy and builds confidence and resiliency. As you create your business, use the knowledge gained from negative job experiences to avoid ever being stuck completing tasks that you absolutely hate and that leave you burnt-out. Instead, you get to build your Virtual Assistant business doing what you enjoy most and create a career that’s exciting and fulfilling every day.

2.You Can Have High Expectations

Experiences in work environments where you’ve felt undervalued and underappreciated help you gauge your worth as a Virtual Assistant. And, you can use this to set high expectations for yourself and your clients.

As your own boss, you don’t have to settle for less than you’re worth. Likewise, you can be picky about the types of clients you’ll take on. You’ll narrow your niche and target market to attract high-paying clients who understand the value of your services.

3. You Appreciate What You Have

When you come out of a negative experience, it’s easier to recognize the positive experiences. As you build your Virtual Assistant and Virtual Expert® business, your negative experiences can motivate you to work hard and build resiliency as you develop the business of your dreams. 

Without those negative experiences, you may not have had the courage to make the necessary changes in your life. Therefore, each day you’re able to truly appreciate the opportunity to have to create your Virtual Assistant business on your terms.

You can leave those negative job experiences behind, but carry them with you as a reminder of your purpose to build your own Virtual Assistant business and create a more fulfilling life.
