The Basics

The Back to Basics weekly free training series has ended but here are a few free training videos for you – that might answer your questions about becoming a VA or starting to build that solid foundation you need in any area of your business to see more success.


Getting Started as a Virtual Assistant


If you are considering becoming a VA, or if you have just gotten started and aren’t quite where you want to be, check out this training session. We’ll talk about what you need to open a VA business – from mindset, to attitude, to actual STUFF you need to set up. This one’s awesome!



Building Your Business Plan


Do I need a business plan to be a VA? Well if you want to have any level of success, YES you do. So get yours started! We’ll talk about the most important elements you need to research to build your business plan, and why each of those things is so important for your success.



Get Your First (or Next!) Client


Good clients are not hard to find. Everyone’s money is NOT the same colour (there are good and BAD clients!) Learn the RIGHT way to get clients, and you will soon have a great network, and more clients than you realized you could have! (Hint: you will need to talk to people!)



Goal Setting to Get Clients


Getting clients takes strategy, planning and most of all ACTION. If you are not setting goals to get new clients, then you are probably working harder at it than you need to. In this lesson we talk about how to set goals to break the daunting task of connecting with people to get new clients up into smaller pieces, so it’s actually fun!



Your Marketing Message


How you talk about your business is so important. You need to give the same message to a lot of different people, but in different ways. I don’t believe in having an elevator speech – gasp! – but I know the importance of succinctly telling people what you do. Your marketing message is the key to being able to articulate what you do in words that THEY understand.
