Services You Should NEVER Offer as a VA
Never offer a service you don’t enjoy doing!
It should seem pretty straightforward, but you would be surprised at how many women start offering services they dislike because they read somewhere it’s the “new cool service” that all business owners are looking to hire!
It is simply not worth it! Life is too short to do things you don’t enjoy. And keeping or taking on a client just for the money, rather than because you enjoy the work, is preventing you from finding a client you enjoy!
How do you know what you do and don’t like? When you first start, you will provide various services. You’ll get to try different things to see what you do and don’t like. Plus, you’ll know where you want to focus!
Once you figure out what you like and don’t like, you can keep those clients on retainer or seek new clients more closely related to the services you enjoy.
There is no harm in telling a current client that you are focusing your business on providing x,y, and z, which doesn’t align with the services you are providing for them. Then refer them to someone who is providing those services. Now you are freed up to find more clients in your service niche!
