One of the biggest ways that I’ve been able to run a side business like this, while still working my 9 to 5 job, has been to hire and leverage help.
This help comes in many forms – freelancers, contractors – but it also comes from my virtual assistant. Having someone who’s got your back for your business is great.
If you’re considering hiring a virtual assistant, let me walk you through the steps that I took to systemize my blog and business, and then how I delegated that out to my virtual assistant and other virtual workers.
I’ve put together a detailed series of posts that can help you navigate the process of hiring a virtual assistant, starting from the beginning.
- How a Virtual Assistant Has Helped Me – A look at why I considered hiring a virtual assistant, and what it has done for me and my business.
- What Tasks Should You Outsource to a Virtual Assistant - This is probably the number one question I get asked about my virtual assistant, so I put this list together for you.
- My Guide to Finding and Hiring a Virtual Assistant – Now that you know you need a virtual assistant, how do you actually go about hiring one?
- On-boarding Your First Virtual Assistant – The final step of hiring a new virtual assistant is actually on-boarding her and training her on the job you need her to do.
Virtual Staff Finder – I hired my virtual assistant using Virtual Staff Finder and I highly recommend them. I used another company originally, and that didn’t work out well. If you want a top-notch VA, use the search company that is the most well known and well regarded in this space.
