Wow... What a fantastic interview! As someone who is just in the beginning stages of this venture, it's great to read about what your experience has been and what you've learned. Your enthusiasm comes through loud and clear, and is inspiring to this newbie!

Thanks!

This interview has definitely blessed me! This is the first one I have read and I am blown away...there is so much depth in the simple things that you have said Vanessa.

I am beginning my VA business and have not found a niche yet. I am holding on to your original notion of working for anyone and everyone that will hire me.

You have lifted my spirit!
Thank you for sharing!

I thoroughly enjoyed this interview. It's this kind of interaction that I find so informative and inspiring. As a new VA, I would really like to make Real Estate and Financial Planners my target market. I worked in a real estate office for about a year as the bookkeeper but always had the desire to do more. I am now working part-time as a Sales Assistant for a Financial Planner and I see the need for VA's in this market. Your interview gave me the confidence to know that a successful VA business can certainly be realized as long as I stay focused and work hard.

I really enjoyed this interview. Vanessa, thanks for sharing so much, I really learned a lot! As others have mentioned, I admire your daily routine. I think it's really easy to get distracted but it sounds like when you have a schedule and stick to it, great things can happen!

Great Interview. This motivates me that I can also grow and be sucessful. I do work full time - and part time on my VA business. My goal is to work full time VA and be able to do the things I want without asking anyone.

Great advise!

I loved reading about your interest in real estate as I am a former real estate agent and I also took a real estate personal assistant course, through the Mike Ferry organization. Your story really gives me hope for the course of my own VA business.

Thank you everyone for your great comments. I am glad you enjoyed the interview as much as I enjoyed sharing my success to date. Stay focused, work hard and your success shall be seen.

Since completing this interview my business had yet again grown 10 fold. I have found new ways to market my business yet still sticking to my philosophy of building a referral business. While I engage in Social Media and build conversations, I am a firm believer that a referral will always be your greatest asset.

I wish you all much success in your own endeavours. What will you do today that will make a difference in your business tomorrow?

I appreciate you,

Something well worth memorizing: "no business today doesn’t mean no business tomorrow.” I am at the very first initial stages of gathering information and sources. Much of the time I am scared to death so I could really relate with what Vanessa said. But I can also see the potential and ultimate rewards. Thank you.
