  • A lot of times, clients would ask their VA’s for emergency tasks. Although VA’s are often not obliged to take emergency tasks, great VA’s take these tasks and further impress their clients. Great virtual assistants are always ready for impromptu tasks from clients.http://www.flickr.com/photos/lcrf/2091771406/sizes/l/in/photostream/Photo from flickr by: icrf
  • Being ready doesn’t only mean being ready physically, but also being ready mentally – knowing what to do and being able to do it. Always.Physically and mentally ready.http://www.flickr.com/photos/photomequickbooth/3644920698/sizes/l/in/photostream/From flickr by: Mrsminifig

  • Try writing a 1000-word article with absolutely no motivation or inspiration. That’d be like a never-ending nightmare.
