Would You Like Your Virtual Assistant Profile Listed Here?

We recently started profiling Virtual Assistants on our blog on Wednesdays. We started with Virtual Assistants (VAs) we personally know and have worked with. We’re now opening it up to other VAs. If you are a Virtual Assistant and would like to apply to have your profile listed at our blog, please use our Contact Form and let us know. You can see the profiles of other VAs we’ve interviewed to get an idea of what we’re looking for.

These are the questions we ask:

  1. When did you start your business?
  2. Why did you choose to become a Virtual Assistant?
  3. What advice would you give new and aspiring VAs?
  4. What resources have helped you in your business?
  5. Share something about yourself such as a hobby.
  6. Additional comments you’d like to share.

We also ask you to include your photo and the following contact information:

  • Your Name
  • Business Name
  • Website
  • Blog, if you have one
  • Twitter Handle if applicable
  • Facebook Page
  • LinkedIn Profile Link

So prepare your information and share it with us using our Contact Form.  We will post one interview each Wednesday. We look forward to meeting many new Virtual Assistants!

Are You Prepared?

We work hard to prepare to work with with our clients. Yet it’s difficult to prepare for every contingency. A recent experience of a fellow virtual assistant brought this to my attention. It helped me realize one more thing we might want to prepare when working with our clients.

This virtual assistant had a client and a large portion of her income was received on a monthly basis from this client. Then unexpectedly the client passed away. Fortunately she is in a position where the loss of income is not a severe blow to her business. However work is left hanging and the virtual assistant is not sure what to do with the website she was in the middle of working on for the client.

So here’s a suggestion for anyone in business. Make sure you have an ’emergency’ contact, someone you can contact if for some reason you are unable to contact your client or something happens to your client. On the flip side, you should provide your client with an emergency contact so that if something happens to you, they have someone to contact to get their project work done.
