How Accountability Buddies are Helpful in Growing Your Business
Do you procrastinate on your goals?
I do too but not always.
Since I have made a decision to become a Virtual Assistant, there has been a lot of challenges. The Virtual Assistant world is huge. I get the feeling sometimes that I do not have the ability and support to succeed in this industry. The competition is kinda fierce too. I have asked myself how do I stay focused and also be helpful to others too?
My answer is that I have created a small group and I named it ‘Accountability Buddies’ on messenger. Having Accountability Buddies has let me become more productive and open to discover other online tools and resources that can help me.
We are only three in the group but keeping it that way is much better than being a member of a huge group. They are also Virtual Assistants. We help and send feedback to each other in terms of how we can grow our Virtual Assistant business better. I am happy that I get to share my feelings and struggles in being a Virtual Assistant to them. We communicate as often as we could. Each of us shares valuable information for our business. It is so much better to tell what is going on with your business to people who are also in the same kind of industry. We also acknowledge each other’s little successes. It is not about perfection but progress is the most important aspect of being in a team. We do have mental blocks sometimes but it is great to overcome those and keep moving forward.
My family and friends are not knowledgeable about having a remote work.
If you are also a new Virtual Assistant or planning to be one, my advice is to join Facebook groups for Virtual Assistants. You will meet other Virtual Assistants and determine the skills that you must have in order to be able to work with your prospective clients. It can be daunting at first but it is a good start in being more visible online. There are online entrepreneurs and bloggers who are seeking to work with a Virtual Assistant and they post it on Facebook groups.
Collaborate with others to reach your goal. They will help you become better and you will also be able to do the same to them.
