I have been fully dedicating my time to my VA&Video Performance Analyst business for the last couple weeks and I am noticing a couple things.
- Getting new clients is a lot harder than I thought it would be. I had done some research on the VA world and it seemed like there was a lot of positions within it. Now that I am in it full time I am finding it is a lot harder than I thought it would be. Seeing postings and how many people are also trying to get these positions is overwhelming. I also cant believe how many people there are who are just starting out and trying to do the same thing as I am. This is a cut throat business and not to be taken lightly.
- Video Performance Analytics is what I love doing but I am not sure there is a market for it right now. I have purchased a program called SportsCode and am hoping to contract out my business to do some video breakdowns for multiple teams however I find that most teams don’t have the money to bring someone in to do this. They don’t have the money to hire someone full time, however they also don’t want to contract it out.
While I look at these two trends that I feel can be overwhelming at times I also have an eager energy and desire to overcome these obstacles. I want to show everyone that yes its hard but I can do it anyways and that I can do it on my own as my own business. I love feeling freedom and being able to adventure into new things. I cant wait to see what the future holds for me.
I am also discovering that I love writing and maybe will extend my love for writing into my VA services!
