One of the things that I do as a Virtual Assistant is help other VAs.
I happen to be a member of Sophie Zollman’s team. She is a very savvy
business woman and here is one of her great articles from her ezine.

VA Tip: Are You Doing What You Love?
Guest Post by Sophie Zollman

Many business owners start their own business to do something they love, something they have great passion for. Those same business owners end up spending more time running the business instead doing the part they love. Why? They try to do it all. When they do it all themselves, they spend more time on running their business.

Many of the tasks required to run a business are difficult, time consuming and even a drag. When you get mired in that, you lose focus on your passion. You can no longer do what you love. You are too busy doing the “daily grind” stuff. One of the best ways to get out of that “mess” is to hire a Virtual Assistant or Online Business Manager.

VAs and OBMs are not employees. They are independent contractors working from their own home office. In many cases, they are small business owners, too, but running a business is their specialty. They can generally do those things faster, more efficiently, and they actually enjoy doing it, too. You don’t pay them for vacation or sick time. They have their own equipment. The best part of this is that you only pay for the work they do. They are not on the clock from 9 to 5 waiting for work to come in when things are “slow.” You have less overhead and better productivity.

If you are in business to do what you love and find yourself NOT doing what you love, it’s time to talk to a Virtual Assistant or Online Business Manager. By delegating the business tasks to a VA or OBM, you can return to doing what you love. When you’re doing what you love, you’re growing your business, making more money and enjoying life again. You will have more time for everything you love both in your personal and business lives. Talk to a Virtual Assistant or Online Business Manager today and get back to doing what you love most!

    I remember my dad telling me when I was in college to do something that I love and am passionate about, and waking up in the morning will be easier (along with going to bed at night). Man, I’m glad I heeded his advice, I see a lot of people who apparently missed that bit of advice.

    Makes perfect sense, Ray.

    When I started working on the net 13 years ago the goal was to make as much money as possible and that was supposed to be “happiness”. I honestly made more money 8 years ago than I do now but had stopped enjoying what I was doing and it was WORK.

    I took my best friend’s advice and started focusing on what I was the best AT and got the most personal satisfaction out of doing. I really LOVE what I am doing now – even when the money is nothing to brag about.

    Again, I can barely wait to get to “work” each day – that says a LOT to me as well.

    thanks for commenting, Ray!
