Why Smart and Talented Must Include Being a Team Player

Virtual Assistants and Entrepreneurs have realized that in our present economic climate, there is little room for a Lone Rangershows target customers diagram on dirt background mentality. Working as part of a team gives Virtual Assistants a competitive edge and the support necessary to ensure that projects come in on time and clients are kept satisfied. After all, no one can afford to lose a customer these days.

Employers cannot afford to hire those smart and talented assistants who cannot pick up the slack and jump in wherever needed, whenever necessary, either. They are looking for Virtual Assistants who understand that multi-tasking no longer means being able to do talk on the phone while typing. Flexibility is the determining factor when hiring team players. You may have a wonderful attitude and be able and willing to get along with all types of personalities – and as a Virtual Assistant, you must – but can you also take over client management whenever there is an emergency? Would you be able to jump in on a graphic art project, should another team member become ill? Can you give technical advice when there is a roadblock to the development of a website or an issue with a client’s virtual event?

Entrepreneurs are looking to connect with a Virtual Assistant team that can take the reins and keep their operation running smoothly, allowing them to commit attention and effort to building that business. They want to know that whatever issues may arise, their V.A. team has it under control – because they have the combined skills to cover all aspects of most situations.

Virtual Assistants often have talents still undiscovered! If you are currently working as a Virtual Assistant, you may be far more creative than you give yourself credit. Here are a few things to consider if you want more clients:

  • Be open to opportunities that stretch you.
  • Always be willing to learn what you do not already know – and increase your personal level of knowledge about what you do.
  • Show what you are able to do – and show that you are willing to do even more!
  • Become flexible (if you are not already).

As an entrepreneur, if you have been looking for qualified Virtual Assistants, look no further than CMBS Global. Grab your FREE consultation today and see the difference smart, talented, experienced assistance by team players can make in the effectiveness of running – and growing – your business.

Corporate Giants Only a Stone’s Throw Away From Losing Their Heads

In the land of corporate giants, there exists an increasing awareness that many are only a stone’s throw away from losing their heads.

Routinely, corporate giants fail – and fall – due to stones strategically slung by much smaller companies…the David’s (if you will) of the market. Remember these giants of not so long ago?

  • Blockbuster
  • Dell
  • Eastman Kodak
  • Motorola
  • Sears

Competition guarantees neither failure or success. Pride almost always guarantees a fall. Practicality, Planning, Patience, and Passion often produce effective results.

To avoid losing your head in today’s corporate climate, among the many market machines, remember…Giants have the potential for getting too big for their own good. Davids have the potential to become Kings.

Knowing Your Product Must Include Understanding the Benefits

by Charlotte L. Hanna CMO/Director of PMR/CMBS Global

Knowing your product is key to selling. Any good salesperson knows that to sell a product, they must know as much as possible about it and to sell consistently they must also be able to communicate the benefits of that product to potential buyers. Knowing your product MUST include understanding how it benefits others, because benefits – not features – sell.

While this is not news to an experienced salesperson…it may be news to the online entrepreneur who is single-handedly working to build a business and wondering why all of their hard work and time consuming efforts don’t seem to be paying off.

Many entrepreneurs involved in building an online business are missing out on sales because they are overlooking the benefits their products and services provide. Today’s online entrepreneurs are usually a one-man or one-woman enterprise. Chances are they came up with the idea for their business and they are the sole marketer, content writer, product or service creator, salesperson, spokesperson, manager – and more.

Whew! That’s enough to make even a SUPER HERO’S head spin!

Married to My Work – Stop Breaking Promises, Prolong the Honeymoon and Keep Clients

 

By Charlotte L. Hanna CMO/Director of PMR/CMBS Global

June is the month of promises…promises of longer days, vacation time away from the daily grind, romance. Traditionally, it is the favorite month for getting married, of promising each other the moon under a hot summer sun. January is reported to be the month for divorcing.

Unfortunately, promises easily made are also too often broken in life, love and business.

In times past, a person’s word was all it took to ‘seal the deal’. Legal documents were seldom necessary between friends and family and rarely even considered among those doing business. Your word and a handshake were all that were needed to buy and sell – even settle a dispute. But those days are far behind us and not only do people regularly promise one another more than they can deliver, it is becoming the acceptable norm to expect that promises will not be kept. Thankfully, there are still those in business who believe that promises made are worth keeping whenever possible, as much as possible. [Read more…]
