Don’t You Want To Do Work For Someone You Really Like?

by | Virtual Professional, Virtual Work Opportunity, Working Moms

{Virtual Work Opportunities for the week of April 10th….scroll down…. but we’d love for you to read our advice on how to land these great opportunities first!}

As I read through the available virtual opportunities this week, I kept seeing a lot of REALLY nice people.

Maybe it’s because I’ve been in the industry for awhile and have the chance to talk to so many business owners and can literally see their faces and hear their voices.

These really nice people want to match up with other really nice people and have some really nice business processes to make their lives easier all around.

Behind all of these opportunities are simply really nice people. Now, sometimes they are extra stressed and a little short with their words because of it, but that’s often where you come in.

The simplest things can be taken off the plate of a busy entrepreneur and suddenly you’ve opened up hours of mental freedom for them.

I’m adding some tasks to my VA team right now that are so freeing to me (one is email management…that hot burning skillet I’ve refused to release from my tightly clenched fists for so long)

As you look at these opportunities and head into interviews with them, remember that. These are people, sometimes with families, who are accountable to their customers to do good. And chances are in the online space, they’ve been taken for a ride more than once by other freelancers.

So what do we teach here? Be a pro.

Show up and be a pro in: 

  • how you deliver work
  • how you communicate
  • how you offer advice,
  • humble yourself when you miss something
  • serve their customers as if they were your own

{by the way….If you talk to someone and get that vibe that they aren’t a good person, run. Don’t second guess that gut feel. You’ll definitely regret it.}

All these nice people really want is another nice person who can show up and do pro work for them.
