How Abbey Ashley Went from Virtual Assistant to 7-Figure Entrepreneur
Virtual assistants are in high demand because they provide an important service to busy entrepreneurs. Working as a virtual assistant can also be a gateway to our own entrepreneurial journey. It prepares us for launching our own products and building businesses that fulfill us and give us freedom.
Some of the most successful online entrepreneurs started out as virtual assistants and worked their way up to become CEOs of their own business.
Offering our services online allows us to uncover what we’re good at, what we love, and where we can offer the most value. This allows us to build something that will make an impact. How do we get into the world of virtual assistance? What kind of services can we offer?
In this episode, I’m joined by Abbey Ashley, founder of The Virtual Savvy. She shares how she went from VA to CEO, and how she found success by focusing on one product.
The best way for me to make money is to improve on the things I already have, instead of creating new things. -Abbey Ashley
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
- There is a huge market for VAs
As businesses grow, it stops making financial sense for the owner to spend their time on tasks that don’t make more money or move the business forward. More and more entrepreneurs are realizing they need help, and the virtual assistant niche is thriving as a result.
- How to go from generalist VA to niched down entrepreneur
Being a VA is an entry point to offering services online. It gives us the launching pad to figure out the problem we can solve, which becomes the service we offer. Starting out as a generalist allows us to attract clients, build our confidence, and then we’ll start seeing what we’re good at. Gradually that will lead to the development of a valuable service.
- How building upon one product gives us time freedom
It takes longer to get traction on a new product and marketing avenue than it does to pour our time and effort into perfecting a product that already exists. By pouring fuel on a product and service we already have, we can prioritize better, maximize our time freedom, and build something that has long-term value.
Abbey Ashley is the Founder of The Virtual Savvy. She helps aspiring virtual assistants launch and grow their own at-home business from scratch.
