Work on Your Passion, Not Your Business

?Corporate training

Teaching and training is a very special vocation, especially when it is about a subject you love. Teachers have dedicated themselves to sharing knowledge with others, helping their students to develop new skills to advance their careers, or to simply get more enjoyment out of life. Yet how do you do that if you are spending all of your time in your business?

That’s where I come in. As a virtual assistant I provide my client, a professional sake expert, with the administrative services his business needs so he can keep doing the work he loves. I handle the taking and confirming of registrations for classes taught both in the US and Japan. I help with preparation work for those classes, including the audio projects related to training. This allows my client to concentrate on delivering the best training sessions possible, rather than making sure he has attendees and materials ready.

Letting potential customers know you are out there is an important part of any business plan. But finding the time to do marketing, without cutting into time for course preparation, can be very difficult. You want to court your prospective students, but not at the expense of your existing ones. I help with that too. I helped my client develop his social media presence by creating his Facebook and Twitter accounts. I write blogs for him and promote them by posting them on those Facebook and Twitter accounts. This allows him to promote his business and interact with existing and potential customers while still allowing plenty of time for developing training products and conducting the classes where he shares his passion for sake with those who want to learn.

Having a virtual assistant helps my client to maintain and grow his business, and yet still concentrate most of his time on doing what he loves. It also allows him occasions to relax and unwind; something many business owners aren’t always able to do. For his customers, having a VA provides dedicated and professional service and support, making it easy for them to do business with him. If you find yourself spending more time in the administration of your business than you do in the development of it, contact Contemporary VA to find out how we can help by taking over the more administrative tasks, leaving you to do the things that only you can do for your customers and your business.
