A Day in the Life
A Day in the Life of a VA, actually varies each day, and I am so thankful for that. You never know what will come up here and there, clients continuously have different projects to hand off to you and then there are the daily tasks that you have to tackle and personal things that come up so although there are probably things I do daily, there are also things I may only do once a week, month, year and those unique things I’m asked to do that I’ll never do again and sometimes that is a good thing 😉.
To be honest, if I feel like I have completed similar tasks enough, that is when I feel like I can add that skill to my resume or services page and feel like it can add value to current and future clients. Being a VA involves a lot of learning, trial and error, making mistakes and most of all learning from them. Which also happens in life, unless you never try anything new.
Work-life balance is also something that doesn’t come naturally to me. It’s not easy and sometimes I wonder if I even have it balanced. Some days I can say I’m more successful than others, but part of being a virtual business owner, is that I can stop in the middle of the day and do personal tasks. I can get up at 4:30 am to get those daily tasks taken care of and out of the way and that allows me the freedom to take a 2 hour lunch if I prefer.
Thank you so much to Matt Bowd for featuring me in the “Day in the Life of a VA” series. It was an honor to be asked to do the interview for this article. Matt is the founder and CEO of VE People and is a devotee to the art of building virtual teams and I’m thankful for people like him that believe in this model of virtual offices and teams and promotes them.
Thank you again, Matt, for featuring me in this article.
