Uncertainty is a normal part of starting a business. There are a lot of choices to make, decisions to weigh, and the future to think about. Therefore, taking the first steps to becoming a Virtual Assistant or Virtual Expert® can feel like a leap of faith.
There are likely numerous questions that plague your mind:
Is this the right career for me?
Will I be able to make the money I need to pay my bills?
How quickly will I start earning money?
Will I be able to save for retirement?
Will I be able to get clients?
And the list goes on and on.
So what is the best investment to get your Virtual Assistant business growing fast?
Invest in a training and coaching program that teaches you how to find, get, and keep high-paying clients.
Whether you’re just starting your business or looking to grow an already established Virtual Assistant business, training and coaching from someone who has already achieved what you want to achieve is the number one best investment to grow your business the fastest and easiest.
Finding a trainer and coach who has been in your shoes, experienced what you’re feeling, and built a successful VA business is the best way to learn, grow, and develop your business.
An article published by U.S. News, “5 Investments Every Smart Small Business Owner Makes ,” states that “[e]very business owner needs a coach or mentor” and adds that “[t]he opportunity to tap into the knowledge, experience and connections of an expert is worth every penny.”
A trainer and coach boost the success of your Virtual Assistant and Virtual Expert® business by:
Helping you strategically start and grow your business.
She’s been there. She’s done it. She knows how to build a successful business. And her role as a trainer and coach is to help you succeed as you build your own business.
A trainer and coach teach and guides you step-by-step on how to achieve success on your terms.
With a coach, you won’t get stuck in traps of wasting your time on something that won’t ultimately help your business. Instead, a coach takes the guesswork out of how to build your business by giving you specific, proven steps to ensure you get your business off to a great start.
Allowing you to earn while you learn (think of this as the business owner’s version of on the job training):
There’s no need to wait until you complete training and coaching to begin earning. Find a trainer and coach who supports you in beginning to earn money as soon as you feel you’re ready to start taking on clients. This allows you to start making money quickly and helps you get your return on the money you invested in training and coaching much quicker.
A great trainer and coach have tons of connections to other business owners who seek the help of Virtual Assistants and Virtual Experts® to perform various tasks. And, once your coach gets to know you and your skills, she can provide referrals to high-paying clients. This perk allows you to quickly find great clients, boost your earnings, and build a successful business.
Providing a community of support and guidance:
An excellent coaching program not only provides you with the help of your coach who is there to guide you, answer your questions, problem solve, and celebrate your successes along the way, but also with a community of others who are building and growing their businesses along with you.
This community provides additional help, guidance, and perspective as you’re making decisions that pertain to your business. They can give you leads for clients, provide you with feedback on your website, and so much more. A community of other VAs who have also been in your shoes, who are willing to help, and who are rooting for your success is invaluable.
According to Benjamin Franklin, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
Just as this quote communicates, an investment in the knowledge you’ll gain from having a coach by your side will pay off in more significant dividends in the long run.
