I’m back! I haven’t blogged in a number of months, but the time has come. I was writing quite regularly but something (I can’t even remember what), threw me off my schedule… and before I knew it I had stopped.
When I was writing before, it was a personal blog that I slowly tried to shift more to business but at the time I wasn’t confident about posting business related information, or tips and tricks because I really felt I was still in the development stage of my own new career.
Back then, I would wonder when I would turn the corner from feeling, almost, like a fake or a fraud. Do you know that feeling? Have you ever thought to yourself, “who am I to tell people that I am a business owner?”? I didn’t always see myself as a ‘Solopreneur’.
The key for me was not giving up on my dream. That truly kept me going… When I would let my mind wander, I would find self-doubt. Had I made a mistake… giving up a pretty good job that I had had for over 10 years? I’m lucky… I’ve always been the kind of person who is hopeful and that self-doubt never lasts very long. I kept my eye on the prize by reminding myself EXACTLY why I wanted this career.
Now, here I am, a year and half since the launch of JenSheaVA and I recently realized that things really are moving in the right direction and in fact, I have organically found my niches.
I’ve always known that what ever I do, I really wanted to be able to be creative and help people. After a couple of recent conversations with another VA and friend, I realized I that I am doing both.
My business really is taking off… people are finding me!!!
I am feeling blessed. I’ve met some wonderful people since starting this journey in the Virtual World. Women who were starting around the same time as me… women (and men) who so very generously shared their time and knowledge and others who became clients… and I feel confident in calling all these people, friends.
I will only look back now with a huge smile on my face, and look forward to all the exciting things to come.
2014 has already become my year!
