Picking a Path and Going All In: The Decisive Move for Virtual AssistantsMay 22, 2023
We address the dilemma faced by many VAs who are on the fence about whether to work for established VA businesses while simultaneously growing their own client base.
In this blog post, we'll provide actionable advice and insights to help you make an informed decision about the direction of your VA business.
The Dilemma: Working for VA Businesses vs. Growing Your Own Client Base
Many VAs are caught in a dilemma: they want to work for established VA businesses while also growing their own client base.
Having a foot in both camps can be detrimental to your growth and success in the long term.
By choosing a clear path and going all in, you can focus your efforts and achieve greater success in your chosen direction.
Signs It's Time to Pick a Path
If you're unsure whether it's time to choose a path for your VA business, we suggest looking for these signs:
- You're too time-poor to find your own clients
- VA business owners are hesitant to hire you because they worry your commitment lies elsewhere
- You're not making the money that you want
Recognising these signs can help you determine when it's time to make a decision and commit to a single path.
Why Having a Foot in Both Camps Isn't a Long-term Strategy
Trying to work for established VA businesses while growing your own client base is not a sustainable long-term strategy. This approach can lead to:
- Spreading yourself too thin and not giving your best to either path
- Struggling to make significant progress in either direction
- Limiting your potential for growth and success in the VA industry
By choosing a single path and focusing your efforts, you can maximise your chances of success and achieve greater fulfillment in your VA business.
Having a foot in both camps - working for established VA businesses while growing your own client base - is not a sustainable long-term strategy.
By recognising the signs that it's time to pick a path and committing to a single direction, you can focus your efforts and achieve greater success in the VA industry.
