Following in my Footsteps and I’m so Proud!

My daughter decided to take a page from her mom's book and started her own business at 22 called Vinyl Decals Galore.

She took over my den in order to make Decals for cars, homes, phones, computers and any place else you'd like to stick them. She recently expanded (which means taking more space in my den, Ughh!) by purchasing another decal cutting machine and a steam press to make T-shirts!

So Awesome!

Last September we all pitched in and went to a car meet at our local casino. She made over $700 in 7 hours! $100 an hour! Not bad, huh? (more…)

Being a Virtual Assistant is NOT an easy task

Busy BusinessmanMany think that working from home is a wonderful thing and don't get me wrong it's pretty great but it can also be very distracting and crazy if you're not the type of person that is able to follow a schedule. The best way to handle working from home is to create a daily plan of action and set aside a space for yourself where you can have a little privacy to knock out those tasks.

Personally I never liked working from the kitchen table but if that's the only space you have then make it work for you. Set boundaries early on by letting your family know “It's work time”. If you have little kids you can give them chores or workbooks or sit them down with their own laptops or ipads so they can feel as if they are working just like mommy or daddy. (more…)

How and Where To Get More Clients

The best way to get more clients online is to position yourself as an expert in your field. If your client is looking for a Social Media Marketer and you claim to provide those services yet don’t have a Twitter account or haven’t tweeted in 6 months then that client is not going to hire you. You must prove you are who you say you are. Your online presence is all they have to go by so make it alluring!

If you claim to be a Web Designer and your website doesn’t look professional then you will not be hired. I know I wouldn’t hire anyone who doesn’t have a professional website. Would you?

Here are a few more tips to finding clients…

  1. Blog Consistently – Write about your areas of expertise, not necessarily always promoting yourself but always showing how much you know and presenting yourself as a strong and capable business person.
  2. Social Media Marketing – Network on social media sites especially the most important ones which are Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
  3. Re-posting – Re-post your blog articles onto article websites and link it back to your site. (more…)
