The Whirlwind of Getting Set Up
The last month and a half has been really productive for me in getting my Virtual Assistant business rolling! For this “Getting Started” phase, I’ve basically been focused on getting a good solid foundation by getting my social networking profiles all set up and interlinked, getting business cards and configuring QuickBooks Online. I’ve also been talking with lots of business people who are interested in utilizing my services and I have taken my cues from them on some additional skills that they could really utilize if I learned them (like WordPress and MailChimp!).
Some days my head is spinning so fast that it’s hard to slow down and focus on the task at hand. But, I am learning to get up and out in the garden when I need that mental pause. Watering and weeding really helps to calm and refocus my mind. I highly recommend finding an activity that you enjoy that helps to center you mentally. You’ll be able to refocus your energies on your purpose and away from all of the things that would distract you from that purpose. Whether it be taking a walk, doing some yoga or just stretching, breathing exercises, heck, even doing the dishes can give you the mental space you might be needing!
