Being a virtual assistant is rewarding, you get to help company owners that align with your values and be their right hand and business partner to help them fulfil their dreams. At the same time, you’re also getting paid for doing something you love, and you may just grab your laptop and head to anyplace you would like to go. You experience FREEDOM each day of your life. How amazing is that? But becoming a virtual assistant isn’t easy, there is lot of work involved: you spend a great deal of time networking and being up-to date with your abilities and the on-line world.

You sometimes might feel a little lonely and that the individuals who surround you may not support you because they do not even know exactly what remote work is or what a VA is. For all these moments of isolation or feeling that you would like to give up here are a few inspiring quotations from AWESOME entrepreneurs which are rocking the business world and that definitely will inspire you to keep going!

“If you are serious about changing your life, you will discover a way. The only barrier preventing you from building a successful VA business is YOU. Operating from an ABUNDANCE MINDSET allows you to cast your vision, create an action plan, and know that everything that you need to attain that goal already lies within you or might be instantly available to you.” – Justyn Jen, Pinterest Guru.

“Every problem is a gift—without problems we would not grow.” – Anthony Robbins.

“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.” – Henry David Thoreau.

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney. You have to have the courage to follow your dreams because there will always be obstacles you have to face before you reach your dream.

“Don’t worry about being successful but work toward being significant and the success will naturally follow.” – Oprah Winfrey. I find this to be one of the most inspirational quotes because it provides perspective: if you are significant in your arena, results will follow, whether it be sales, followers or whatever KPI you define to measure your personal success.

If it feels like no one is supporting you, join Facebook groups and a community of virtual assistants and freelancers. You’ll definitely find people that understand what you’re going through and that may give you advice about anything. You’ll never feel alone again! Believe in yourself. You’re rocking it!
