Of all the resources and tools we have available to us as virtual assistants, there is ONLY one tool that without, it’s a business fail because this is the most powerful tool you have as a virtual assistant.
Throughout my career in corporate and then running my business, I have had the privilege of being across many private and personal projects. This means, that my number one tool has to be beyond reproach when it comes to dealing with and accessing both private and personal information. So who would have realised when I first started JMJ – EA for a Day that something I have always held dear, would become one of the single most important reasons my clients are my clients.
No matter how good you are at doing what you do, without INTEGRITY, you have nothing. TRUST is absolutely everything between you and your clients. Having integrity isn’t just about being honest, it’s about demonstrating you’re a good person in a variety of ways.
Although I have a website, and queries come through regularly. I find that the majority of my clients past and present come from referrals. Word of mouth is free, there is no cost associated with it. For me, my influx of clients each year begins in mid to late January. It begins with emailed introductions and requests for help from potential clients. My clients are my biggest fans. Not every client will come on board, and there is a reason for that, you are not what they are looking for or they are not what you are looking for. It is perfectly okay to pick and choose who you want to work with, after all, they will pick and choose too.
