WARRIOR OF A GLADIATOR
Most Creative Warriors struggle with trying to do everything and spend the least amount of time doing the thing they are best at – being creative. If you want to advance your business, there’s no reason you should be the bookkeeper, or the person making spreadsheets and updating calendars. Unfortunately, hiring an employee is complicated and most people shy away from it. They worry about the expense, the taxes, and the search for the perfect person that can do it all to fill their time.
You’re in luck. There’s a much easier and less expensive solution: a Virtual Assistant. Instead of making your first hire a full time employee, make it an investment in someone who just helps when it’s needed. Chances are you don’t even need an assistant for more than five hours a week. You can easily find the perfect person to jump in and out of projects, do just what you need, and they don’t have to be on your payroll. Delegating these tasks allows you to spend your time on what really generates revenue for your business. It also gives you more time to do what’s really important: live.
To dive deeper into the importance of getting a VA, and why you shouldn’t wait to get one no matter what size your business is, I’ve brought on THE expert: Melissa Smith. Melissa Smith, is the CEO of The PVA. A virtual assistant matchmaking and consultancy company. She’s also the bestselling author of, Hire the Right Virtual Assistant. She hosts the Admin to VA Summit and teaches an online class, The Essential Business Model For VAs online course. In 2017, Melissa became location independent, visiting, living, and working in 16 countries in 12 months. Her next book, Become a Successful Virtual Assistant: Learn the Business Side & Ditch 9 to 5 will be released in early 2018. Melissa has been quoted in various publications including Woman’s World, CareerBuilder, and Business Management Daily.
