Three Questions I Would Love to Know About You

2013 is shaping up to be a fantastic year! Remember, you create your own destiny!

Here are three things I would love to know about you and that I thought would be fun to share with each other:

1. What was one (or more) of your most satisfying, happy-making, damn-proud-of-mahself accomplishments in 2012?

2. What goals, milestones or accomplishments are you excited about working toward/conquering/achieving in 2013?

3. What would you say is your one overarching superpower? We all have many, but I want to know the one big one that comes to the forefront.

 So here are my answers:

1. Created two new business learning products for Administrative Consultants that I’d been trying to get to and am super happy with. Made some huge strides in streamlining my own business and operations. Zapped several tolerations that had been on my to-do list to take care of for (get this) at least two years! Major relief felt there. And had some practice runs that are bringing me closer to my adventure goals.

2. This year, some activities/goals that I’m excited about working toward include getting back to my German lessons, reserving space to FINALLY take the classes I’ve been wanting to take to formally learn my Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD video software, and last stage preparations of my super secret upcoming adventure. I am also working on finishing a major, major update to one of my marketing products that is going to blow everyone’s mind. SUPER excited about that one. In relation to that, I’m going to be asking some valued colleagues for their advisory assistance in putting final touches together and really looking forward to the breakthroughs that will bring about.

3. I would say my superpower is a beyond-human organizational ability. Everything I do in my work and business revolves around organizing:  work, ideas, seeing the big picture and how everything fits together.

So, what’s yours?

    Hi, Danielle!

    First of all, I’d like to thank you very much for your response to me on the 8th of this month. Your words of inspiration and wisdom were very much appreciated. I’m still digesting everything that you’ve said (in-between my full-time job right now)– it’s a lot to take in– but really very helpful. Hopefully, I can get on full swing with my new biz soon. As you said, it will be a lot of hard work, but truly fulfilling. With your patience and guidance… I’m so looking forward to that– (:

    With that said, here are my answers to your questions–
    1. Finally, brave it and “officialize” my consultancy business.
    2. Promote my business and lock in long relationships with prospect clients.
    3. I would say my superpower is being able to multi-task about 10,000 different ways and times, and still be able to get everything organized, prioritize, and meet deadlines. I am a super restless human being. I can never be still at any second of the day. If at all, my mind will still be awake and working. As my friends say, I am one person who always wants to do somethiing everytime and do it at my best.

  3. Hi Danielle,

    First I want to thank you for all of the valuable advice that your give in your blogs along with your encouragement.

    1. Saving a client over $70,000 on their website.
    2. Establish additional on-going, long-term client relationships.
    3. The ability to think outside of the box.

    MY biggest srtuggle is marketing myself. Can you please provide some information on how your market your admin services (i.e. in person networking, printed pormotional materials, etc).

    Thanks

    Shelley

  4. 1. Transitioning a client to a new accounting system; getting their bank reconciliations up to date and balanced with the new software.
    2. Get new retainer clients and say goodbye to tracking hours FOREVER!!!!
    3. desktop publishing – documents; policies, procedures; booklets, etc.

  5. 1. Boldly stepped into the Virtual Assistant biz, made a few mistakes, learned alot of valuable lessons and survived my first year!

    2. Transitioning from being an “assistant” to a “consultant” with a monthly retainer model and adding 2 more retainer clients. I am also changing my role with my clients from someone who just does what they ask to someone who advises as well.

    3. My superpower is systems – creating them, maintaining them and documenting them. I was born with a natural ability to organize information and input efficiency into procedures.

  6. Thanks for sharing, everyone!

    Good luck, John. 🙂

    You can do it, Lettie!

    Great job, Shelley! For marketing help, check out the products in the ACA Success Store as well as the “Marketing” category here on the blog (it’s under Categories in the sidebar to the right here).

    Awesome on escaping the billable hours trap, Kimberly!

    Good on you, Mary! And remember, we are Administrative Consultants around here, not virtual assistants. I look forward to seeing you on board!
