Why did you decide to create a Virtual Assistant or Virtual Expert® business?

Did you desire more flexibility in your schedule? Were you sick of being undervalued and underpaid in your traditional job? Did you long for a career that is more conducive to having a family by allowing you to work from home?

Whether you’ve been a Virtual Assistant for a long time, you’re just getting started, or you’re trying to decide if a Virtual Assistant business is right for you, you ventured into this career with a desire to live your life to the fullest and without limitations.

However, like most facets of life, your Virtual Assistant business is bound to weather some storms.

If you’re like most of us, you’re likely not a stranger to failure. The word failure has such a negative connotation, but if you think about it, where would you be if you never experienced failure?

Everyone makes mistakes; everyone falls into ruts; everyone has times where they feel like they don’t have the power to change their circumstance.

Are you at a point in your Virtual Assistant business where it’s just not going the way you envisioned and you feel like giving up? Remember this: YOU are in control of your success; therefore, YOU have the power to change whatever it is that’s holding you back.

Instead of focusing on failure, change your mindset to believe in your potential, and be resilient to the challenges you face.

Here are some tools to help when you feel like giving up:


Set Goals

In your Virtual Assistant business, you must set long-term and short term goals.

What do you need to achieve in your business to truly live the life you envision?

Explicitly write out your goals and make a plan for how you will achieve them.

Don’t skimp on your goals. Set the bar high. You can adjust your plan for achieving those goals as successes as challenges arise.

However, your goals are static. Don’t adjust the magnitude of your goals just because you’re scared.

Believe in this: With a positive mindset and the belief that you are in control, you can achieve lofty dreams — in fact, you can achieve more than you have ever realized. I know this because I have done it. And I know for sure that what one woman can do another can do.


Accept the Feeling of Being Uncomfortable

Creating, establishing, and growing your Virtual Assistant business pushes you into taking risks. Taking risks is scary.

This feeling is completely normal — embrace it. Facing fear is what we call COURAGE.

When you venture into the unknown, you’re bound to feel uncomfortable. Instead of letting that fear consume you and hold you back, use the fear to motivate you to keep pushing forward. Work through the fear and stretch yourself beyond your comfort level. That’s how you’ll grow!


Make a Plan for Overcoming Challenges

When running your Virtual Expert® business, you will come across challenges that you never anticipated. Of course, no one wants to make mistakes, but mistakes are inevitable.

However, your mistakes should not stifle your productivity or success.

Use your mistakes to help you grow. Give yourself the time and space to process and learn from your mistakes.

Take a walk. Confide in a friend. Play with your kids or pets. Take a long, hot bath.

Instead of giving up on your Virtual Assistant business, give yourself the time and space to process your challenges and become resilient. Rise above your challenges. Use them to make you stronger and keep moving forward.


Let Go of Self-Doubt

You are responsible for your success. You have the power to create the Virtual Expert® business you desire. Unfortunately, we are sometimes our own worst enemy. Do you flood your mind with thoughts of self-doubt, stifling your ability to power through challenges?

Often, other people, like me, believe in your potential more than you believe in our own.

To grow the Virtual Expert® business of your dreams, you must let go of the doubt that plagues your success. Celebrate your accomplishments and focus on your successes. When you stop giving into self-doubt, you empower yourself to reach your goals.


Ask for Help

So often, we make the mistake of thinking that asking for help shows weakness.

On the contrary, asking for help empowers you to reach your full potential.
As the world changes, your Virtual Expert® business will also change. You’re not going to know everything.

Therefore, you need to ask for help to reach your full potential and draw in high-paying clients.

When you feel like giving up on your Virtual Assistant business, remember that YOU have the potential to create a highly successful Virtual Expert® business.

• Set goals.
• Take risks.
• Be resilient to challenges.
• Let go of self-doubt.
• Ask for help.
