Have you ever considered how a virtual assistant (V.A) might be able to help you with your marketing (and life)? Perhaps you’ve fantasised about how helpful it would be to have your very own video editor, social media manager or maybe even someone to help take all those boring repetitive tasks of your plate so you focus on doing the things with the greatest impact.
Too often I see practitioners getting “stuck in the weeds” doing things they shouldn’t be doing!
If you’re wanting more time, impact, profitability and enjoyment in practice then a V.A might be the missing link.
The incredible skill sets and cost effectiveness of the right V.A can’t be ignored.
Todays guest, Charley Valher is an expert at helping small businesses like us find virtual assistants so we can spend more time doing what’s important (including taking a break!). You might remember Charley from episode 77 where we talked all about how a podcast can be an unfair advantage for your practice. Charley is also a whiz when it comes virtual assistants. In fact he has own company that helps to match V.A’s to businesses.
In this episode Charley walks us through the minefield of hiring your first V.A.
Here’s a preview of what you’ll learn:
- What kind of things can a V.A help with?
- How much should you pay them?
- How do you choose a V.A?
- Best practices for communication?
- Common mistakes with V.A’s?
This episode was profoundly helpful to me personally and I hope it is for you too.
As always, thanks for all you do.
Keep saving lives.
