Myla, tell us about yourself.
I am a single mom/grandma currently raising a 14 year old grandson I have 3 grown daughters and 8 grandchildren. I have worked most my life in retail management and enjoy helping others succeed!!
What has been the most challenging aspect of starting a Pinterest VA business?
The biggest challenge is finding clients and sending out those cold pitches. I definitely had more no’s or no response at all before I landed my first client.
Have you always wanted to own your own business?
I really have thought of it off and on throughout the years, but never had the nerve to take that chance. I sometimes wonder how my life would be now if I had.
Ashleigh’s Tip: I felt the same way about blogging. I wish I had started earlier! Taking the first step is scary, but you have to give yourself the grace to fail or you’ll never find the opportunity that is perfect for you! Learning what you aren’t good at is just as important as finding out what you are really good at!
What do you think about investing money in a business? Sometimes it feels scary to put money towards something when you don’t know if it will be successful. What are your thoughts about that?
One of the great things about the course is… after you start, you if realize it’s not for you they refund your money. That made it a little easier to take the chance. Since the course I have spent under $100 on contracts, things of that nature. Your future is a good investment so if working from home is what you want to do it may take a little up front but you’re worth it.
What was the scariest thing about starting your own business?
It’s always scary starting something new my biggest fear was what if I never find clients or what if I think I’m doing well then find out I’m not. As I got into the course I realized that digging in has helped me to overcome my fears. I’ve really learned that perseverance and hard work are so important. And because I took the Become a Pinterest VA Today
! course the support is really amazing to help me overcome those days when fear rears it’s ugly head!
What have you learned the most from starting your own business?
Coffee is my best friend! A lot of hours have been put into the VA part and I also started a blog so I’ve had several nights up till 2am and back up at 6 and right back at it.
How did you find your first client?
I’m a lifestyle blogger, so I decided to start researching other blogs in my niche. I checked to see if they had Pinterest or not, and if so did it need some attention. I started emailing and I sent a lot of emails before I got my first client. I did the first month in exchange for a testimonial and she was happy with my work so now she’s a paying client. My second client found me on Facebook.
Ashleigh’s Tip: Set a realistic goal for yourself. I gave myself a year to start making a $1000 per month with my blog. I knew that if I wasn’t making that money by the deadline that it was ok to walk away from the work from home gig knowing that I gave my all for that year. (I met my goal! 🙂
What success tips can you share since starting your own business?
Hard work and perseverance are key. I take lots of notes and plan my strategy for the week on Sunday and make myself stay on track. If you stay focused and motivated nothing can stop you. I always tell myself the only thing stopping you ….is you!
What would you say to someone who is looking for a way to work from home?
You may be surprised, once you really start digging in, there are hundreds of work from home opportunities for you. If you love Pinterest as much as I do you can’t go wrong with this course I’m enjoying every minute.
