Exciting! Virtual VIP Days for Creative Online Entrepreneurs

It’s time for a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! I have an exciting new offering for creative entrepreneurs called a Virtual VIP Day. Wondering what the heck that is? It’s all laid out HERE on my Virtual VIP Day page!

Is There a Problem?

In my 10 years as a virtual assistant to creative entrepreneurs, I’ve noticed a clear pattern of good intentions getting sidetracked :) We start working together, assignments and questions are traded back and forth via messaging or calls, and sometimes a week or a month can go by before we complete a project that would’ve been so helpful for your business, like, yesterday!

The Solution: A Virtual VIP Day

This is a full day where we’re connected via video or phone, we follow an agenda, and we Get Stuff Done! After the VIP Day, I include 1 extra hour of VA work to tie everything up. I also provide a summary of our work and some suggested next steps.

A Video to Explain More

There’s a lot of information to digest on the Virtual VIP Day page so I recorded a screencast video which you can view here:

It’s an 11-minute walkthrough that I hope addresses some of the questions and concerns you might have and explain things in a bit more detail. {I’m happy to do a longer video as well if you express interest in that}.

Virtual Assistants and Creative Entrepreneurs: Making Time and Space for Real-Life Magic

I’m like you. I work solo from home. I’m often connected to my iMac or iPhone and feel very “in touch” with my clients and online business friends. I’m not lonely when I work and I have lots of conversations every day. “I love the computer. All my friends live in there.” However, while e-mails and Skype and WhatsApp are great for connecting, they’re not real.

Last week, I had a lovely lunch with two mamapreneur clients / dear friends / mentors. These are wise women who are where I want to be in the cosmic scheme of work and life. I thought I was merely escaping a Friday afternoon at my desk and getting a meal with friends. Little did I know . . .

Not only did I receive free guidance and, essentially, coaching by two of the best, but I was affirmed in so many ways. They said I’m proactive, smart, and make things happen, that what I do is MORE than a virtual assistant typically does – oh, so much more. (Blushing ensued).

They teased about how, when the 3 of us meeting up “sometime” was mentioned, I had this lunch calendered so fast, they LOL’d. And how when one needed some press exposure, I had her booked on the local news pronto :) How I’ve helped them not just with essential tasks but with strategy and big picture conceptualizing. I like to think of myself as my clients’ right hand so that made me feel really good, like I’m on the right track.

They encouraged me and gave me ideas (including napkin notes!) for ways I can up-level my business by adding in a whole new direction!

We spoke about resistance, how where I am is comfortable and engrained in things from way back in my life and even those before me.

We talked about hermit crabs moving to larger shells – “the naked crawl” – and how change is scary but it’s already happening so go with it. Ride the wave; be accepting and joyful.

We shared the belief that we’re blessed by our husbands and children and asked, “How lucky are we that they chose us, and that they were chosen for us?” Each teaching us what we need to learn most, enveloped in unconditional love.

We talked about scarcity mindset vs. abundance, how to change patterns, how to bring loved ones along for the ride, and (for me) how to shift retirement dreams away from “the sensible place” and back to the beach, where my soul is fed and rested.

We ate well, drank bubbly, and toasted love & friendship. We saw signs like a lovely waiter named Jesus, and a delivery truck outside the window whose side read, “Oh, oh my, we are blessed.” Indeed.

We exchanged gifts that will continue to feed us, smiled and laughed, and hugged goodbye when it had to end. Three hours wasn’t enough; the words were still bubbling, the connections still firing.

Now it’s your turn, my love. Make the time and space to meet your online “true blues” in person. You simply must. Because this is the magic that happens.
