I was reading an article this morning from Tracey D’Aviero; Founder of My VA Mentor and Owner of CAVA/GAVA. The article was great and one that felt like she was speaking directly to me as I have been looking at NEW ways to find NEW clients.

Idea #5: Seek out a Local Networking group
I have recently agreed to attend a local networking event and so I started thinking about my ‘Elevator Speech’.

  • What will I say when I get my 2 minutes of fame?
  • What will I tell people I can do to help them and their business?
  • How will I convince people to work with me?
  • How will I stand out in the crowd?

You see, sometimes these events freak me out! I mean don’t get me wrong, I am passionate about being a VA, crazy about My VA Connection, love helping people, and really enjoy meeting new people but I get nervous sometimes… I know I am not the only one that feels this way so I am okay with it. Have you ever seen those people that just get up, introduce themselves and could stand up there forever? – They make it look so freaking easy!

Yesterday I was asking around about ideas to get my message out there. A friend of mine, Angela Wills of Laptop Lifestyle Business Club told me to try more ‘relationship building’. As soon as I read that I knew what I needed to do and it is absolutely what I love to do… I need to build relationships!!!

  • I need to stop overthinking my ‘elevator speech’
  • I need to start telling people about ME!
  • I need to let people know what I can do to assist them
  • I need to network with people and let them know what I do!
  • I need people to know that I am resourceful and learn fast
  • I need to tell people that I can help them with their website, their blog and their social media
  • I need to let people know that I a document creating guru
  • I need people to know that my passion is creativity and that I am a whiz with design work
  • I need to tell people that I can help them build their list with an email campaign
  • I need people to know that I can update their website, the blog or social media
  • I need to tell people that I can run a meeting from the agenda to minutes to creating the report
  • I need to help people get organized with their inbox, their calendar, and their files
  • I need to help people spread their story with webinars, presentations, courses
  • I need people to know that I can organize a weekend away or a holiday for them
  • I need people to know that I can do the research and find them the perfect gift
  • I need to start telling people that I have a HUGE list of tasks that WILL definitely assist them with their needs and allow them to do what they do best!! If they can delegate it, I can do it!!

So, this is kind of a ‘head’s up’ for ALL of you and accountability for ME!

  • I plan on writing in my blog on a regular basis
  • I plan on updating my website with free resources
  • I plan on sharing information on my wall
  • I plan on posting on My VA Connection page
  • I plan on posting in the groups I manage
  • I plan on posting in the groups I belong to
  • I plan on asking people to share my posts
  • I plan on creating email campaigns
  • I plan on posting on Instagram
  • I plan on posting on LinkedIn
  • I plan on posting on Twitter
  • I plan on posting on Pinterest and maybe even SnapChat!
  • I plan on being more present EVERYWHERE!!!

I am also planning to join at least ONE local networking group.

With ALL of this said I can safely say that I am far from creating JUST an elevator speech because I have so much to tell YOU!!  So much to tell people, so much information to share, so many resources for all of you and so many ways that I can assist you and help you grow your business…
