As Andrew Mason puts it - "Most small business owners are not particularly sophisticated business people. That's not a criticism; they're passionate about cutting hair, cooking food, and that's why they got in the business, not because they have an MBA."
I would like to believe that most of us have something that we are passionate about but then some of us are super passionate that we create a way to share our passion and before we know it there's a demand for what we have to offer. We can then decide to turn our passion into a small business venture; after all why not?
My vision of operating a virtual service enterprise started in 2010 when I realized that my friends and close associates, some of whom operated their own small business, from time to time would request my assistance on their projects. As a result of this, I decided to package my skills, technical know-how, and creative abilities and market myself as an executive virtual aide. Through this establishment, I avail myself of small business owners, entrepreneurs, and independent contractors (or anyone who needs the service of VA) to help them achieve their business goals.
It brings great joy and a sense of contribution when other businesses and individuals benefit from the services I provide; that in itself also motivates me to feed my passion and better my best at all times. For the most part, I can safely assume that the large business enterprises at some point were once a small business. So what are the chances of your vision translating from a small business growing into a conglomerate? It starts right here and now. Let us create the tomorrow we always dream of.
