Three Traps that New VAs Should Avoid

A lot of VA coaches will tell you that you should jump headfirst into a specific niche from day one. In this episode, I’m talking about why that’s not good advice.

When you rush into specialization without first honing your skills and gaining some valuable experience, you’re missing out on a whole world of benefits. We’re talking about the confidence that comes from mastering your craft, the enhanced marketability that makes you irresistible to clients, and the success that follows when you have a solid foundation to build on.

Tune in to learn more about:

  • why niching down early isn’t helpful and what you should do instead
  • how I discovered my secret weapon as a VA at a conference in Germany
  • the significance of soft skills in the virtual assistant industry
  • how being versatile and multifaceted in the digital business landscape sets you apart

PLUS- get a sneak peek inside my Unicorn Digital Marketing Assistant School and learn the reason why my modules focus on real world examples and hands-on application. 

Don’t underestimate the value of what you bring to the table. For your potential clients, being well-rounded actually means you’re badass.
