7 Essential Qualities of a Successful Virtual Assistant

There are tasks for every entrepreneur or business owner that slow down business development and are better handled by a Virtual Assistant so the focus is more on growing. How can you find your ideal Virtual Assistant?

Here are 7 essential qualities you need to look for:

Integrity: Your VA can represent your business and deal with your clients, it is crucial to build a trustworthy business relationship. A successful VA is honest with strong work ethos given the nature of the remote support.

A positive “can do” attitude with great energy: always upbeat, always willing to help, always available.

Excellent executive and communication skills with the ability to communicate assertively at all levels.

The ability to be proactive and logically solve problems autonomously with no support, for that a VA needs to be resourceful with access to the industry’s latest trends and know how

Willingness to persevere through challenges and the ability to multitask

Reliability: your VA has to deliver on time, efficiently, and keep you posted with any development that may hinder progress

A business partner:  a successful VA understands the challenges of running a business, and really cares for your profits.

Unlike an employee, a successful Virtual Assistant has the ability to see the big picture, and to take part in your success.
