Hello! It’s been a crazy few weeks – we have been busy creating amazing things for our new membership site: The Society – invaluable resources & community for driven women with big dreams. I cannot even begin to explain how amped up we are about this. With 5 girls building their best content and getting super fired up, this is just beyond. It’s high vibe. It’s diverse. It’s educational. It’s inspiring.

It’s fucking exciting.

Have you ever had a client that pushed your personal boundaries big time? Don’t be ashamed- my hand’s raised on this one, too.

In fact, I once freely gave away my personal cell phone number so clients could contact me. (Don’t worry, that all changed when I had to file a restraining order against one of my first-ever clients who abused this access to leave me threatening voicemails- that was fun!)

In any case,

If there’s one thing I see come up over and over again when someone is hiring their first VA, it’s that they have in mind this perfect person, perhaps someone they already know. Or maybe you interviewed a couple of VAs and feel that there’s one standing head and shoulders above the crowd. Now, there’s certainly nothing wrong with wanting to hire your virtual assistant and be done with it. That’s really true if you’ve already interviewed the person and they seem like a great fit.

When you develop something new in your business, don’t make the mistake of dedicating dozens of hours to something until you know there’s a demand for it.

If you ask most online business owners whether there’s been a failure in their past, the answer will always always be no. I have found that some of my biggest failures were when I had this “brilliant” business idea that I spent a lot of time outlining and creating only to find that no one wanted to buy it.

Every time you hear the success story of someone who just gave it their all and went for it, it’s tempting to believe that you want to start your own business as well. Now, don’t get me wrong – owning a business is hard work.

 

There are days when the challenges seem insurmountable. Other days, you simply don’t want to be there. However, starting your own business can potentially be one of your greatest blessings.

Especially for the solopreneur, it’s easy to keep everything on your plate at least at the beginning of your business. In fact, some people begin to develop their business this way and don’t understand the negative habits that they have associated with trying to manage everything on their own.

Momentum Drops and You Feel More Hot Mess than Superhero

At the beginning of your business adventure, you’re bootstrapped and probably don’t have the funds necessary to hire someone else to help you.

It might sound like strange advice to tell you that you are going to have to fire your clients as you grow your online business, but it’s absolutely imperative that you consider this as serious advice. In fact, I tell many people that one of the reasons that I have been able to grow a freelance writing business with six figures in revenue is because I have fired clients and understood the negative qualities about past clients that I don’t want to see in future ones.

I guys, it’s Laura.

Listen – I had a catastrophic accounting mistake that happened early on in my freelance career by assuming that any CPA could manage my taxes. What happened was the CPA who was more experienced with brick and mortar businesses, made mistakes that it took me years and hundreds of dollars to fix with the help of another CPA. That was essentially money and time thrown down the toilet and I was very bitter about it for a long time.

Let’s be honest- we’re not always telling the truth about how productive we are. Admit it- you probably spend ten hours or more per week watching TV, right? Probably another five with email?

Yikes. It’s embarrassing just to think about. That’s why I started tracking myself- I was way underestimating the time I spent on non-productive tasks.

If you’re a business owner or just a busy person in general, it’s important to understand that there are many different tools that you can use to keep yourself on top of all your responsibilities.
