So even if you don’t have all the skills now, you can learn them and start (or build up) your VA business.
I tend to get approached by people who have strong admin skills, but for the clients I work with, I need more than that. My clients are online savvy and are developing exciting online products, which means the contractors I take on need those online skills.
Mailchimp, aWeber, Wordpress, social media management and other systems like Infusionsoft and customer support services (Zen Desk and Help Scout). In a nutshell I need to find 'unicorns',
But how do you become a unicorn? How do you build an enviable skill set? How do you up skill in the areas that most clients need?
Most VAs try and figure it out on the job, and deal with a lot of unbillable time, which we know is a killer in this business, both to your sanity and bottom line.
So what's the solution?
I have taken on contractors who have graduated from this Online Biz Skills course, and they are fantastic!. They have the right skills, and attitude which means they are the right fit for our clients.
If you are looking at expanding your skill set so you can take on more clients or even become location independent then I highly recommend this course.
But it's not open all the time. It only opens a few times a year, so if you've been thinking about how to change career direction, or you want that flexibility in location.
Do it, don't wait.
