How I Assist Clients

Because each VA has his or her own style of assisting clients, I thought that you would be interested in knowing how I assist, what I expect of my clients, and what my clients can expect of me.

My clients are great!  I am blessed with the privilege of choosing with whom I want to work.  I want to enjoy each and every one of my clients…it’s important to me.  They are growing, successful and happy, and I am assisting them to further their personal and professional lives.  That really gets me excited!

Honesty and clear communication is important in order for us to build a partnership across a distance, it is imperative that we communicate well.  Staying in contact on a regular basis will make this relationship move forward more quickly than it would do otherwise.  Please think of me as if I was in next room and call or write me whenever you have a need, or just to say hi!  I’ll be in touch frequently, too!

I am your partner for success and I want the best for you.  I really want you to have it all, and I want to be right here when you get it. To make that happen, we have to see this as a long-term relationship, and invest time and energy into making it just what we both want and need it to be. That means we need to be partners, and you need to really trust me to have your best interest at heart. Trust can take time, I know–as you see me work, and as I help you grow, it will happen. It’s necessary in order for the relationship to keep moving forward.

We are equals. Our relationship shatters the traditional boss/assistant paradigm.  We are both professionals and business owners.  We’ve chosen to work together — for your success. Our relationship is based on equality — you pay me and I bring immense value to your work and life.  I also hope our relationship, like my other partnerships, becomes a friendship.

I give straight adviceMy strength is in my gentleness.  I want you to always be comfortable with me.  I will, however, always be proactive and tell you exactly what I know when I’m sure of a situation. In those cases, I’ll make specific suggestions on how to handle a challenge or get the most from an opportunity.  If I’m not sure, I’ll say so.  Regardless, I’ll step up to the plate and tell you what I think….although you have the final decision about your work.

My word is my bond.  Honesty and integrity are two things I hold above almost any others. I count on my clients to always be honest with me and with others.  I can’t participate in anything illegal or that violates my values. If I have a problem with something you’ve asked of me, I’ll tell you right away.

Interdependence will create a successful partnership.  I want you to use all of my services, resources, experience and expertise, but please don’t become dependent on me. As your assistant, I have a great deal to offer and I put it all in your corner. Whenever you need something, my hope is that you think of me, and see what we can create together. Up till this point, you’ve done it all.  I understand that you have decided to work with me, in part, because you just can’t do it anymore.  Still, there may be times when I’m not immediately available, or I’m away from my office, so it is in your best interest to always be able to handle things yourself. I ask that my clients use me as the resource and friend that I am, but not to let themselves get into the position of needing me in a dependent way.

I ask questions… sometimes lots of them!  If I had a different experience every second of every day of the rest of my life, I couldn’t know everything.  I do know a lot, and I have many resources at my disposal to help me.  As my partner, you need to be one of them, just as I’ll be one for you.

I accept responsibility.  I will always assume responsibility for the work I’ve been asked to do or oversee.  This doesn’t mean that I will automatically accept blame if things go awry. If something is not my fault, I’ll tell you so.  I expect my clients to give me the benefit of the doubt, just as I would offer the same to them.  I also reserve the right to be human and make mistakes from time to time, and I offer you the same opportunity.

I have a high standard of excellence.  I might even be more particular than you are.  Chances are, however, we won’t agree on everything.  I may have a different way of doing things than you do — remember, one of the reasons you have chosen to work with me is that I have unique experiences and skills, and that I know a thing or two about a thing or two!! Please don’t insist that we do things your way until you have heard the suggestions that I might have.  I am well trained and have a great track record of helping clients grow their businesses more quickly and easily.  I might bring something to the table that you’ve not considered, and my hope is that you will take the time to give the suggestion the consideration it deserves.  In the end, if you want something done a certain way, I’ll do my best to make it happen.

I am here as your partner, I want to be here for you to help with professional *and* personal matters.  If there’s something going on in your life that impacts you, if there’s something you want to share with me, call me.  I’ll do my best to help you, encourage you, be a resource or sounding board or a cheerleader, whichever you need.


5 Benefits of Partnering with a VA

Congratulations on your decision to work with a Virtual Assistant!

Virtual Assistance works when a client sees a gap between where they are now, and where they want to be…. and they’ve gotten smart enough to know they can’t get where they want to go alone.  Getting the help long needed is all that’s necessary to really close that gap and go for what you want!


1.  Feel the world taken off your shoulders:  Having it all theses days, doesn’t mean DOING it all yourself.  When you work with a VA, giving away all the things you’ve been tolerating in your life, you’ll feel enormous relief, and immediately more able to move forward with the things you want to do.  Working solo no longer means working alone, with a VA on your team!

2.  Make more money:  You need money.  There’s no way around that.  In working with me, you are immediately freed up to pursue those things in your business that will earn you far more than you have now.  And I’m here to support you every step of the way.

3.  Go for what you want… ALL of it:  Want more clients? More time with your family? Want to travel, or have more time just for YOU?  In me you have a partner who is unconditionally supportive. As you grow to know me better, and as you let me support you more fully, you’ll find that you are able to go for ALL you want, because you have someone on your side.

4.  Make far better decisions … both personally and professionally:  My clients are all happy, successful, and building a high quality life.  How? By using the time they regain in their lives as a result of our partnership to focus on the things that really need their attention.  That time and space helps them be more sure about what they want.

When they worked alone and had a gazillion balls to juggle, they didn’t have the space to become clear about what they really wanted, and consequently, the decisions they made weren’t as well thought out as they might have been.  Key points were forgotten, details lost in the shuffle, and things didn’t happen for them the way they wanted them to.

Now, bouncing ideas off me, having me available to listen, understand, and take the actions necessary to help them move forward…. well, it all just assists them in getting the clarity they need in order to make fantastic decisions that work to help create a terrific life.

5.  Be more energetic: When you’re focusing on things you love, and you’ve let go of the things that didn’t need your attention, (by giving them to me to handle) you’ll find you feel better and have far more energy.
