Time to listen….

When I initially started my VA business I thought providing a variety of services would be the key to attracting new clients and gaining experience. In the beginning I offered administrative, human resources, legal research and social media maintenance. I noticed that when I mentioned the services I provided social media maintenance most potential clients wanted to know more about that particular service. The more conversations I had about my business and the services I provided the more I noticed the interest in the social media maintenance with legal research as a close second. Then I started thinking…”Maybe I need to rethink my services” It is important to really have honest conversations with your clients to see what works and what may not be best for your business. Next time consider having a conversation with your clients. Consider creating a survey. You may be surprised by the results

Today I decided to change the along behind this blog and give a more “day in the life” approach to working as a Virtual Assistant as my “side hustle.”

Today I joined Ty-Juana Flores of Style Your Curves for a Sip and Swap event in conjunction with Dress for Success. I of course was honored to have Ms. Flores ask me to volunteer and be apart of a great cause.

Today’s Sip and Swap consisted of great people, great location( Scholars Boston) great conversation and plenty of clothes!

In the midst of the event I engaged in great networking conversations. This of course can lead to great business opportunities!!! The social media aspect was very present with the use of hashtags and tagging of photos to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Todays hashtag was #sycswap. This became the movement for the entire evening. Attendees immediately began taking photos, tagging people and of course including the hashtags. As someone very in tune with the social media world I immediately began doing my part. The Instagram and Facebook likes came through and let’s not forget those tweets!

From a business point of view I engaged in great conversation with some amazing people. It is always important to remember there is power in words. You never know what will come next.

#vatipoftheday: consider creating a hashtag for your next business event or create a following for your social media presence
