Some people might take offense at this– to be relegated to a low-wage, outsourced function.
Or to be the “world’s best” VA is to akin to being prison inmate of the year or being told that you throw well for a girl– a backhanded compliment.
But I found great meaning in the compliment.
It means that people see me as a servant leader– not too important to wash other people’s feet.
It means that we are constantly thinking of our people’s well-being, to treat them as extended family.
I’ll do anything for our people– not because it’s moral high ground or creates loyal employees, but because it makes me feel good.
We have a dozen VAs on our team, mostly from the Philippines– amazing, happy, loyal people.
We couldn’t operate without them.
Another way to serve besides being a VA is to be like Steven Spielberg or George Lucas, directing talents like Harrison Ford and Tom Cruise.
Harrison Ford, as talented as he is, couldn’t do everything all by himself– he needs a team of people to support him.
Have you considered where you can be of the greatest service, to lift where you stand?
