I'll give it to you straight- it never even occurred to me that one could be a Pinterest Virtual Assistant. I always came from the mindset of a user. I would pin like crazy- healthy pregnancy workouts, dream home inspiration, recipes I wanted to try that week, & everything in between. One day I came across a blog writing about becoming a Pinterest Virtual Assistant & I immediately was like, "how didn't I see it before??" I would consistently follow new blogs that had content I enjoyed, so why couldn't I help other bloggers & business owners convert traffic to their sites? It seemed like a no brainer!
But I pumped the brakes to look at this potential career logically to ensure I got alllll my ducks in a row.
Here are the main reasons I knew it would be a great fit!:
1. Flexible Schedule From Home
When brainstorming my career path, the biggest thing my hubby and I decided was that I needed to find a career where I could raise the babies & not be tied to specific hours- sahm mamas you feel me?? We gotta hustle when we can, & for me, at least, each day is a different roller coaster where I have to find time.
2. All about the Passion
This one is the most obvious, but the hardest to discover within yourself. It needs to spark the fire within you that will drive you to keep going when things get tough. Because I know it will be easier to quit than to keep going some days.
Well, how do you discover your passion? I don’t really have that answer other than trial and error. Try new things- see what you gravitate toward. Or what do you enjoy doing in your spare time? For me, I love anything creative. I love design. Graphic design, interior design, playing with colors, fonts, mood boards, you name it. I think it all is super cool. I found myself on Pinterest A LOT. For lots of ideas- anything from mom ideas to style to design to home decor. Like I said, it never even crossed my mind that you could become a Pinterest Virtual Assistant, designing pins and helping scale other businesses. I did my research and thought this could be something that really works for me!
3. Feeling More Than Just a Mom
Being a Mama can be tough. It is such a beautiful job and I would choose it over and over again, but it can be pretty thankless and draining at times. My son is currently in the phase, where if I am out of his sight, he screams (*cutely I might add), "Mama, where arrrrre you?" So you can imagine how much alone time I get to feel like just me. Us mamas are constantly running on empty while giving all we have. And most of the time we have no idea what we’re doing, and don’t get many praises that we are doing things right.
Before I was a mama, I was a top level athlete, then moved into a career in sales, where I was used to leading the pack. I love raising my son. He is THE best thing in the world. I just feel like I have so much drive inside me to be doing something even more, that makes me feel like the me before I was a mom. Plus, I really wanted to be able to provide in my family, and feel the pride of earning money for my family in a way I feel so excited about & enjoy doing.
4. An introvert who wanted a laptop lifestyle
I am an introvert through and through and have always wanted to work behind the scenes. Fun colors & design have always intrigued me, but I had always been too afraid, feeling like I wasn't different enough to stand out. That's just silly talk - if you reallllly want something, you can make it happen. Plain & simple. You might have to study more often to learn the required skills, but it's ultimately up to your determination & follow through.
Another dream of mine has been to have the laptop lifestyle, where I could have the flexibility to work from anywhere with WiFi, then ultimately live a life of more freedom, & less stress, & more work that made the days pass quickly.
Creative collaboration with other business mamas where we can run together watching our businesses grow? UM... YES PLEASE!
