Hi guys! I've been beating my brains to find the right niche for me but then I had this idea
I'm a bit of a creative type and what ends up happening is that I think of waaay too many things I WANT to do and loose track of the things that will help me most in the more immediate future. They say "admitting" is the first step! hehe I've known I'm guilty for a while so I definitely have researched my options and I thought of this possibility.. Hear me out-
I've read a few comments here and there on the subject that this is a demographic (artists, spirituality people, etc) that can have a bit of a harder time with some tasks since they are firstly focused on their creative passion. I have some friends in these fields I am helping with their twitter accounts and I've found it really, really fun to help them figure out the answers to questions I myself have been very challenged with. Questions about the client base you are seeking and how you want them to perceive you are existential traps. I think on a different level is true of us newbies here as we try to figure out what we want our businesses to look like. I read everything I can and every podcast I can, but my hands on experience isn't much. I manage the Twitter account for the company I work for during the day and I'm doing work for these guys for free in exchange for the experience and testimonials. I don't mind as these are people that otherwise would probably not be potential clients (just yet). I feel it is defiantly a fair exchange, but it does leave me a bit curious. I guess my question to all you veterans is--Would this work as a focus my training and experience for my VA business in order to create a niche? VA and Personal Assistant, specializing in social media for creative entrepreneurs and freelancers? I know I'm getting a bit ahead of myself, but I like to know just where I'm going.
I would love to find mentorship with someone. I definitely do my best to actively network and get opinions but I'm not sure how this works. I don't want to come off as pushy by asking
I'm just excited to learn and can't think of better people than the ones I've found here. Do you guys think I should post a thread inviting willing mentors? I have seen posts on here, but many of there were a bit old and the links didn't work. :/
Again, I'm just starting out so I'm just curious to see if this is a road worth taking in terms of how I market my business. I'll be redoing my website soon but I want to settle into a niche first.
Sorry this got so long! I look forward to seeing what everybody thinks!
