Social Conformity - Simple Business Sense

Recommended Posts

Here's a brain game we can all apply to our VA business. I actually first watched this video at a motorcycle course of all places. The instructors wanted to point out to us that we shouldn't always do what others do (peer pressure) when riding as that can get us killed. ie) Just because our friends want to ride fast doesn't mean we have to keep up with them to stay in the pack. We should trust our own judgment (our life is in our hands not others riding our bike).

Same goes with business sense.

Don't forget, this is our business and we should run it the way that works best for us. Just because someone else is doing something in business doesn't mean we have to follow suit. Building a list might work for one VA and not another. Is either right or wrong? No. Another example, networking in person could be beneficial to one VA (extrovert) yet to another VA (introvert) they may benefit from online networking better. Get my point?

The reason I love being a Virtual Assistant is because we are each so very unique in how we run our business. We all have different services we offer, we all use different tools/resources in our business not to mention we all hang out in different VA groups. Be confident in how you run your business and don't feel you have to always follow the "in-VA crowd" ;)
