A podcast where you join me (Penny!) as I chat to fellow creatives over a cocktail.
I AM AN ENTREPRENEUR, LAWYER, AUTHOR & PODCAST HOST. I LOVE TO SHARE MY BUSINESS SECRETS IN THE SBL!
Today on the podcast, we are following on from last week’s podcast, where I talked about the benefits of hiring a Virtual Assistant. Today on the podcast Brie my assistant and I talk about how we have dealt with hiring our VA’s and the different challenges that arise. Brie does all of the recruiting, hiring, and training of our VA’s, which has helped us scale and given Brie the freedom to engage in higher-end tasks.
Daily, weekly and monthly tasks are best managed using an app called Trello. Trello allows you to organise tasks in priorities, due dates, and columns to ensure you can see precisely where your VA’s are throughout the day.
Whenever you have repetitive tasks, we use an app called Loom. Loom allows you to film what you are doing on your computer and record your voice to ensure your VA has a video they can watch over and over to save you time and questions.
Having a VA allows you to focus on high-end and non-repetitive tasks, which will enable you to focus on scaling your business. Yes, it might take effort and patience to set your new VA up and get them working to your standard, but once they get into a routine, you will be thanking yourself for all of this free time you now have!
If you have any questions for Brie regarding how she hires her VA’s, please DM me, and I will have her answer for you!
