Is business personal? It’s a little complicated Why? Because we’re women.

In this episode In the lead up to our Partner buy at the meetup in Auckland on July 11th In partnership with GridAKL, I wanted to talk about how hard it is to get our significant other to support us as an entrepreneur. What happens when we do not get the support we need or worse, your relationship partner ask for a business plan.

As women entrepreneurs, we have a lot of obstacles to face. One main obstacle being, do our relationship partners have full support and belief in us and our abilities to succeed in entrepreneurship? Do we care? Find out more on this podcast.

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.

When you find your virtual assistant and hire them the work begins.  I always recommend using Google doc’s to outline each and every task as you train your virtual assistant.  We will have more on this in an upcoming episode.

My Hiatus

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

It’s true I have been on a hiatus from my podcast series called The Beauty Beat with Francesca Alexander.  There are so many reasons for this but mainly it’s because I fell in love for the first time in a way I never really have.  In my childhood or adult life I have never connected with a community in my neighborhood ever.  Auckland, New Zealand is my new love and amongst the city noise of constant construction, crazy drivers on the left side of the road, and the busyness of the city streets is where I easily fall asleep then wake up and thrive in my business.  Who knew?!

My Hiatus socialglobalgrind.com 1

One of the major transitions for me is deciding to start a meetup group. The women who attend are not only like-minded but I have had the chance to lead this group in all things that affect female entrepreneurs has turned into a movement.  This has not only been empowering for me it has defined what my life’s work needs to focus on.  I used to say I created this group to promote digital literacy and self-confidence with women but that cause is expanding.  It has expanded on programs and services that I will be telling you about soon.  The biggest takeaway is that I desire a live community and an online community and that means relaunching my facebook group.  
 
I’m sure you can relate to this when you work alone you would love to connect with like-minded entrepreneurs over coffee.  My research on  what blocks female entrepreneurs from going forward is a hot topic and one that I love hearing about.

Once we get the why we over think, hesitate or take that leap of faith in a launch we can defuse those blocks and ease into our rightful place as thriving business owners.

In this episode we get our mindset to shift from a unsure “I just started my own business.” to a confident entrepreneur that is “in development.”  Check out my pro tips on Reboot Your Support System.
