Your Virtual Partner learns your pace and works holistically.
Your Partner is someone you can share anything and everything with. There are no boundaries for topics.
How does a Virtual Partner Differ from a Legal Business Partner, a Life/Business Coach or a Virtual Assistant?
Business Partner: Typically, a business partner is someone you share control of your business with including shared profits. The benefits of a Business partner are that they are often full-time contributors to your business. Conversely, some choose to end their business partner relations due to imbalance and it could be costly to dissolve the partnership. If you choose to have a business partner, take your time and choose them the way you would choose a partner in life. (since you will most likely be spending as much time together if not more)
The benefits of choosing a Virtual Partner over a Business Partner is that you get to keep all your profits and control. The relationship is not legally bound and can be terminated at any time.
Life/Business Coach: The role of a Life or Business Coach tends to be more authoritative. Typically, you are bound to accountability and performance. As a business coach for many years, I have discovered that most of my clients prefer more of a partner due to the pleasurable feeling of working with a contemporary and friend. Their productivity still accelerates but at their pace and comfort level. And we have more fun!
Virtual Assistant: What would we do without Virtual Assistants? Their value is immeasurable for the entrepreneur. They take on the necessary tasks to have your business run smoothly while you get to do what you do best.
Many of my clients contact me after they have failed at hiring a Virtual Assistant. The reason is, they don't have a good enough handle on their business to be able to turn it over. Either they are not able to articulate what they need, don't have the time to train them or don't have a clear model and structure to determine the best use of their prospective V.A. Not only have I witnessed the frustration from the side of the entrepreneur but from the V.A. themselves who are eager to please but very unclear of their direction.
That's where your Virtual Partner comes in. Your partner would LOVE for you to have a V.A. Therefore, if you desire, together we can prepare properly for your V.A. to work efficiently, effectively as well as independently.

Yes, there's more, just ask!
I help partners work with dignity and age appropriateness. I work with many partners 50 and over, some who have friends about to retire and they want to be able to co-exist in their world. Whether my partner chooses to or needs to continue working at any age, it's important they feel a sense of pride and confidence in their success working at an age-appropriate pace.
So, if you are an active Baby Boomer, Starting over Senior, a Senior-preneur who loves to work while traveling or just trying out a new gig for yourself, then consider taking on a partner to make it easier and more fun!
Working with a Virtual Partner varies for each individual. The focus of the call is determined by you. Fran helps you solve problems and create opportunities, offering advice, guidance, helping you strategize, and celebrate your achievements.
