As entrepreneurs and business owners, our most precious resource is time. And the only way to leverage your time is to hire staff, particularly – as online business owners – virtual staff.
In this episode I'm breaking down my top ten tips on the basics of hiring and working with virtual assistants – something I know a thing or two about!
I literally wrote the book on this subject – Virtual Freedom – and today's show is like an introduction to that book. It's a simple and quick guide to getting started with your virtual team – something that'll propel you from wherever you're currently at, to where you WANT to be!
In fact, I believe every online business owner has the ability to grow even further beyond where they want to be – it's a mindset shift that's required. Everything from knowing what you're good at and want to focus on, right down to being honest and learning to let go.When you work with a VA, you ultimately buy more time! #Youpreneur Click To Tweet
