Even though I am a virtual assistant I still have occasional face-to-face meetings with my clients. I had the pleasure of meeting my most recent client this past Friday, and by the end of our meeting I realized I had found another mentor.
This particular client is truly impressive in that she is one of a few women in a male dominated industry and has risen to the top of that field in only three short years. She has done this through lots of hard work, training, and a real love for what she does which carries over into how she deals with her clients.
This client has built her business slowly and carefully, prides herself on her commitment to her clients and their best interests, and because of that her business has grown dramatically. She is now ready to take her business to the next level and realizes that in order to do that she can no longer do it alone. I am so excited to help her on her journey to even greater success and I look forward to learning from her as well as helping her grow.
We started talking about everything from business to personal and I mentioned how I’ve been struggling lately with my work-life balance. She gave me an excellent suggestion on what she and her husband do to keep their connection strong which I followed on Saturday and my partner Brandon and I had great date night out: we went to the movies to see The Hunger Games Catching Fire and talked and connected in ways we haven’t done in months!
Having someone to look to as an example of where I want to be is extremely powerful and is going to motivate me in ways I can’t imagine. I’m glad I found another strong mentor to help me on my journey to become the successful business person I know I can be.
