When you’re an entrepreneur, you find ways to accomplish as much as possible in a day’s work. There are times when the tasks pile up, and nothing seems to get done. You get frustrated and overwhelmed with the amount of work that needs attending. After getting out of survival mode and start seeing things clearly, you consider delegating tasks and letting more people in your team. The next question would be whether to hire a trained professional or outsource a virtual assistant or VA?

In today’s episode, I talk about the factors you ought to consider when deciding on a service or a VA. I expand on the productivity components you need to assess, the time element in play, and questions to ask yourself before making a life-changing decision. You’ll also learn how to gauge yourself and evaluate the tasks that need delegating. Whether you’re hiring a service or a VA, remember that it is still your business and you are the captain of the ship.

We want you to own your business rather than having your business own you. And hiring virtual assistants is the first step.
