    • I will conduct myself with professionalism at all times.

    • I will continue to strive for excellence by seeking training to advance my skills.

  1. Excellent post, Cathy, and very important that we get the word out there. We as VAs uphold confidentiality probably more so than an employee of any organization/corporation. Why? This is our business. Integrity, honesty, and professionalism are at the core of our business.

    • Thanks Patty! You are absolutely right, most employees do not hesitate to reveal confidential information but VAs would never jeopardize their business or their integrity. That is why I felt the need to post this so anyone contemplating hiring a VA would know that our standards are high and our integrity means everything to us.

  2. Hi Cathy! This is a great post! would you mind if I linked it to my VA site as well. I think this is something very important that our clients need to realize that we take our business VERY seriously!! Thanks for sharing.


    • Thanks for the kind words, Tina! I wouldn’t mind at all, thank you. It is an important subject and I would encourage other VAs to spread the word as well.
