    VATTA #76 - What Are Alternative Titles for Virtual Assistant

    VATTA #76 - What Are Alternative Titles for Virtual Assistant

    You may have heard me say don't use Virtual Assistant as a title for yourself or your business. Virtual Assistant is NOT a title, it's an Industry. Not to mention calling yourself a VA doesn't really tell anyone anything. Most people either think you're an admin or have no clue what you do.
    So what do you call yourself instead of VA?
    Well that's what today's podcast is all about! In this week's episode of the Virtual Assistant Tips, Tricks + Advice Podcast I'm sharing simple tips to help you come up with an alternative title for Virtual Assistant.
    I hope you'll listen and share your thoughts!

    Do you find you lack confidence when trying something new or making a big change in your life?

    VATTA #73: What's a Portfolio + Do I Need One?

    VATTA #73: What's a Portfolio + Do I Need One?

    Have you heard that you need a "Portfolio" to share with potential clients to showcase your services?
    Well... you may or you may not need one. It depends on the services you're offering - it's NOT one size fits all.
    Regardless of what others say - not everyone needs a Portfolio.
    In this week's episode of the Virtual Assistant Tips, Tricks + Advice Podcast I'm sharing what a Portfolio is and why you MIGHT need one for your business.
    I hope you'll listen and share your thoughts!

    VATTA #72: What Skills Are Clients Asking For??

    VATTA #72: What Skills Are Clients Asking For??

    I see this question posted on social media at least once a week - "What skills do clients want or what are the top skills they are looking for".
    That's a great question if you're already in business and want to learn an in-demand skills set... BUT what about if you're trying to start your VA biz?
    It's a bit more daunting since most people starting a business are tight on time + energy.
    In this week's episode of the Virtual Assistant Tips, Tricks + Advice Podcast I'm sharing what I think you should focus on instead if you're still trying to launch your VA business.
    Focus on what you can do NOW and then create a wait list for the "top skills" to learn when you have the time + space to do so.
    Oh and here is the link to my Free Top 10 Skills e-book that I mention in this episode - you can use it as a reference for what you want to learn once you're up and running.  https://www.techiementortraining.com/top10-skills-sign-up
