We had an extraordinary week and I personally have been recovering from laryngitis.  As I was recovering I got to thinking, how lucky am I to have
my virtual assistant to help me pick up the slack and reschedule some
items that I can’t do without a voice. It wasn’t always this easy…

In this podcast, we discover what it takes to Find your ideal virtual assistant.  Tips on how to do it, what services I use and how affordable it really is.

When I started my business in 2010 I didn’t see a value in hiring an assistant but rather thought this is when I’m making 10K per month and
then I can add “staff”.  It turns out it’s not that complicated and you can
hire someone as little as $4 USD per hour.

 

One of the many things that entrepreneurs have to face is taking our multi-tasking skills to the extreme.  What can we do to ease our rigorous daily operations?  It starts with finding a virtual assistant.

One of the ways you can get started is writing a list of all the things you have to do in a week.  Then list all the things you would like to do in a week.  Your final and third column to this is to write a list of 3 top and significant task that you could really use help in this very instant.  That is the job description of your first VA that you need to hire.  I use upwork.com to find my VA’s and it’s super simple to place an add and even recruitment support if you need some.

Getting a virtual assistant to help you organize your week is amazing but it’s not an easy fix.
