Recurring Work in Your Virtual Professional Business
In episode 4 we are talking about recurring client income.
How do you find those recurring work relationships as a virtual professional?
Let me start by saying, this is the place to learn how to become a Virtual Professional, build a business where you can do your professional work, do the things that you’re really good at that you love, but from home, and do them for people who value it, who value you. This might sound kind of warm and fuzzy, but I like to do work that brings more value into the world. So as a freelancer, as a virtual professional, I can pick and choose which clients I want, that line up with my values, that appreciate what I bring to the table. My client list is a group of people that I just adore and have become friends, colleagues and long-term partners. That’s what I want for you.
Hottest VA Skills You Need to Increase Your Rates
One of my most asked questions from the How She Quits Community is…
How do I increase my rates as a Virtual Professional?
This is actually a really smart question to be asking because you could double or triple what you’re able to charge as a lower dollar VA who is just starting out. Imagine being able to charge $25-$50 per hour for your services, that equates to you being a $50,000-$100,000 employee if you are working full-time.

As a busy business owner who both hires my own VAs and places them with others, I can tell you that good quality VA’s are tough to come by. I’m not talking about even the whiz-bangy tech skills or the creative geniuses. I’m talking about a reliable, accountable, going to do what they say they will do kind of person. Crazy huh? $20+ / hour is nothing to sneeze at but perhaps there is a misconception in the VA world as to what a business owner really expects and needs for that $20 / hour. And it doesn’t take a lot of extra time on your part as a VA.
