How many of you get butterflies in your stomach when you have an interview with a potential client? How can you bring the best of you to the table when you're "shaking" inside? We all know how nerve-racking interviews can be so how can you ensure that you slam dunk the client interview and walk away with a new client?
First things first - you better know your stuff. Don't claim to be something your not and then not back it up with examples and testimonials.
If you're a general administrative virtual assistant then state that, don't try to become something you're not, like a technical virtual assitant. Honesty is key here.
Once you have a potential client interview you have got a lot of prep work to do before your call, so don't be in a hurry to have the call and then come up short with regards to your due diligence.
