I’m back! I have closed my home-based cupcake shop as of the beginning of the year. While I LOVED baking and creating unique and fun cupcakes, it was a labor of love and not producing enough income to really sustain my needs.
SO, I started working part-time with a business broker (Legacy Venture Group) as his “Girl Friday.” For a little over a year, I’ve been handling much of his administrative work and help him solve marketing problems. I answer his initial requests for information about business listings he has available across the state of Florida. I gather non-disclosure agreement and buyer’s worksheets. I add his new listings to the Florida Business MLS service, BBFMLS and to popular business listing websites BuyBizSell, BizQuest, BusinessesforSale and others. I have been creating posts for his social media accounts and updating his WordPress website as needed. I craft/edit his 1 page obscure business reviews and the more detailed confidential Comprehensive Business Reviews. I’ve helped craft business processes and draft ebooks for his business. In the very near future, we are planning to start creating videos to promote his services and his business.
During the past few months, I’ve started to realize just how much knowledge and experience I’ve gained doing a lot of things I REALLY like to do. So, I’ve decided to create a Virtual Consultant business out of it. I have not created a full website yet… just this blog for the moment… but I do have social media pages that are in their infancy. I’m also in the process of learning Click Funnels.
This go around, I’m going to try to document how this process goes so I can pass on what works for me and share my failures to help others what has worked for me and what hasn’t.
Wish me luck!
