the type of work you've done for many years is NOT what you enjoy doing or are passionate about? Would you utlize it anyway as a service to provide to clients simply to get your VA business up and running? Or would time be better spent learning and honing the skills you actually seem to enjoy but may also force you put off your start up?

 

I'm in the midst of brainstorming my experience/skills/passions and finding that what I've done for a very long time as a job (and could bring in steady income) isn't necessarily what makes me want to leap out of bed each morning eager to begin the day.

 

Help!

Hello,

 

I came in the VA industry by accident, while I do like what I do it's not necessarily my passion. I have been told by a coach that you can make income from both your likes and passion, it's just that you have to know which one you will dedicate more time to. Best wishes.

When I started out I did everything and anything but at that time I wasn't sure what I liked and disliked. As my business grew I realized which things I enjoyed doing and which things I didn't. I cut out all the things I dislike. I don't want to invest myself into something that I'm not passionate about.

It really depends on how badly you need the money right this instant. You may want to take on a few clients doing work you aren't necessarily going to want to do forever just to cover some of your startup costs. It's truly a personal venture how you get yourself up and running.


In the beginning I did a ton of different service work just to make ends meet and as I grew my client base I could then choose exactly the type of the clients I wanted to work with and either outsourced what I didn't want to do or introduced them to another VA who would be better adapt to the services they required.
