A growing successful business means more tasks to juggle than ever and most of the time requires extra sets of hands. If you start becoming overwhelmed with these tasks then it might be time to hire a virtual assistant.
The idea of outsourcing to a virtual assistant is a popular thing nowadays, however, many business owners are reluctant to do so because they don’t know when and how to start. Some are skeptical that there isn’t a trustworthy virtual assistant who can handle the delegated tasks. Well if this is what you’re thinking, think again.
Now is the time to change that mindset. So, join us on today’s episode as we share our insights and experiences with hiring virtual assistants. Moreover, we provide you tips and ideas on when should you start outsourcing work.
“When you start thinking about do I need to outsource such and such, you probably do. That probably means it’s time if you’re thinking about it. So instead of questioning yourself and asking everyone for 6 months, just go do it. Just try it. Maybe you’ll hire somebody and you don’t have enough work to fill especially if you hire somebody full time. You might not have enough work to give them. But then that forces you to find the work and it forces you to go what things can I get off of my plate and then get them off of your plate which creates momentum on your business. The more you get off of your plate, the faster your business moves.” – Mike Yanda
