Well, you can try! But it’s certainly not going to be easy finding clients under a cloud of secrecy and lies.

The way we see it, you have two options:

Be open, honest and have a courageous conversation that paves the way for you to truly succeed; or

Not do any of that, allow the secret to eat away at you from the inside, find it more difficult to find clients, AND run the very real risk that your boss may find out anyway … and THAT’S a conversation we know you’d rather avoid!

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The only things your boss cares about regarding your side hustle
  • The language to use when telling your manager about your VA aspirations
  • Why your fears around this conversation are usually unfounded
  • Why honesty truly is the best policy
