Interview with Sherra Scott of Quality Practice Management Solutions

Tell us about your business?
I work with fun-loving people who are passionate about their businesses and want to enhance their Internet presence and connect with their target market through social media and Internet marketing. I work with my clients to evaluate their social networking and Internet marketing goals, create a plan and assist with the implementation, management and evaluation of their social media and Internet marketing plan.

Please tell us what being a business owner means to you and why you became an entrepreneur in the first place?
Being a business owner is my American dream. Having the ability to run a successful business while having the flexibility to volunteer at my children’s school, be there for them when they are sick, and spend quality time with them is very important to me.

What or who has been your greatest influence in business and why?
I can’t think of one particular person or thing that has been the greatest influence on me. There are many wonderful people in business that I admire, particularly in the virtual assistant industry, who have accomplished so much and give their information to others so freely.

What would you say is your greatest professional accomplishment to date?
My greatest accomplishment to date is my certifications. I am proud to be a Certified Internet Marketing Virtual Assistant, Certified Social Media Marketing Specialist and Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor.
What’s the best advice you have received in business that you wish to pass on to our readers?
What works for someone else may not work for you. Don’t be afraid to be different if that’s what fits your personality and business style. If something isn’t working, change it!

What one thing have you learned as a small business owner that has served you well over the years?
Think outside the box. If you’re passionate about something find a way to incorporate that into your business.

Are there any resources or tools you’d like to share with other small business owners that have helped you succeed?
I have found many great resources and tools that small and home based business owners can use.

What is Number One Business Goal you plan to accomplish over the next year?
I plan to expand my services to include some downloadable learning products as well as speak at a couple of local events.

Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
Do what you’re passionate about and you’ll never work a day in your life – and it’s OK to change your passion!
