How to Hire a Virtual Assistant — A Simple 5-Step Process to Grow Your Team

Hire a virtual assistant as soon as you can. It can be a game-changer for your business!

Consider the difference in your business if you could free up 5 to 10 hours of your time every week.

That’s time you can spend working on your business instead of in it.

When I recommend coaching clients hire a virtual assistant, I get a lot of push-back.

“Where will I find this person?” 

“How will I train them?” 

“What if I can’t keep them busy?”

And of course, underlying all those questions is the big one: 

“Can I really afford this?”

I get it. I worked alone in my business for years. So what I’m about to tell you comes from experience.

Once you work through these issues, you’ll find yourself asking a new question:

“Why didn’t I hire a virtual assistant years ago?” 

Finding an assistant isn’t that difficult. And once you have a system for working with your virtual assistant (VA), you’ll wonder why you waited so long.

Chances are you’re so busy that the idea of taking time to find someone — never mind training them — feels impossible.

Good news — I have a simple, five-step process to make it easier for you to hire a virtual assistant for your business. Read on, or watch the video above.

Kickstart online business success when you stop "learning" and start implementing

How to Kickstart Online Business Success When You Stop “Learning”

What does online business success look like to you?

As online entrepreneurs, we sit down every day to work in front of what I not-so-affectionately call a “Distraction Box.”

When else in human history have we been expected to do productive work by using the exact same device that also provides entertainment, connection with loved ones, and irresistible distractions at every turn?

Give yourself a break: it’s not easy! For any of us — me included.

But I’m here to report that:

Productive days and weeks are possible — even when your productive work happens on a “Distraction Box.”

With just a handful of simple new habits, you can stop procrastination in its tracks without needing to sign up for a new course or read a new book.

(That’s what “learning” often is — a noble pursuit that is procrastination in disguise. But it can undermine our online business success. More on this later.)

The result from adopting these new productive habits?

You’ll find yourself hitting those elusive goals. You’ll step into a leadership role in your online business.

Each success will boost your confidence and your “distraction resistance” muscle will grow stronger.

Ready?

Let’s get started.

How to Build an Email List: The Fast and Slow Methods

You want to build an email list as quickly as possible, right?

That’s smart — email marketing is one of the most cost-effective ways to grow an online business.

But does speed really matter?

On the one hand, yes — it’s important to gather an audience that you can help and serve. The faster you build this audience, the sooner your online business will see real traction.

A solid email marketing strategy uses both speeds, fast and slow.

The fast tactics you’re about to read about will give your email list an immediate boost.

But the slow tactics? They’ll provide slow burn growth that builds a solid foundation under your online business.

Ready to build an email list at two different speeds? Let’s do this …

There’s nothing like the feeling when you get testimonials from real-life customers.

You can use these powerful snippets to convince even your most skeptical prospects to do business with you for the first time.

Testimonials show prospects how real people have used your product or service to get real results.

Testimonials come from a customer — someone who is just like the person who’s reading your page.

But …
