You should be able to communicate with your client and other people to do your job. And of course, many tasks will require communicating with very different people: customers, suppliers, your client’s employees.

If you cannot communicate clearly with the persons you get in contact with, then it will be very hard for you to do your job.

2. Be alert

A very important quality to succeed as a virtual assistant is the capacity of memorizing your client’s preferences and taking decisions that follow your client’s criteria without your client having to ask you to do anything. Keep in mind that your client will judge your work with objective and subjective criteria.

If you are a virtual assistant without a knack for organization, you will be easily overwhelmed. You should organize your daily responsibilities, the paperwork, the internal documents, the emails, the calls and many other demanding tasks.
