Before even thinking about hiring a virtual assistant there comes a time of frustration and overwhelm. This is what fuels and motivates a virtual assistant. All they want is to take that frustration and turn it into something useful.
When you are ready to start looking for a virtual assistant, it is best practice to jot down 3 main things.
1. What tasks do you dislike doing the most?
2. What tasks take up most of your time?
3. What tasks do you have a hard time completing or don't fully understand how to do?
Whether you delegate these tasks to your future VA or not is not the point of the exercise. The point of the exercise is to understand where your frustrations are coming from.
Now that you know what you dislike the most, what takes up the most time, and what you just don't understand how to do effectively, you can start to identify tasks that are at the top of the list to give away.
Keep in mind that there are MANY types of VA's and it is possible to find one that is already trained in what you need them to accomplish.
Once you've identified what you would like to delegate, visit www.voa-services.com/contact and schedule a free consultation.
