In this second episode of the Clone Yourself Podcast, my aim is to open your eyes to who a VA is as I walk you through how they can help you in your business.
First of all, it’s who is a VA and not what is a VA.
Remember, virtual assistants are people that we need to build relationships with…
We need to make a mindset shift… to trust and the understanding of needing to be okay with letting go. After all, we’re only going to be able to GROW OUR BUSINESS after we let go of the tasks that are just straight up wasting our time!
A virtual assistant is someone who works as a freelancer remotely to assist in growing your business. The skills of VA’s are as creative as you can imagine. If you can dream up a task, you’ll be able to find a VA to help!
Patience is Key!
You need to be patient, expect some mistakes as you get used to working together and you need to onboard them properly. Remember, you’re in this for the long haul!
Change your mindset about those tedious time consuming tasks and learn to work less and play more when you hire a VA!
Some Quick Thoughts:
Often times overseas, but not always… If they are overseas, then they’ll be working while you sleep! You’ll be waking up to completed work and it truly does feel like you’ve cloned yourself so that you’re always working.
Thinking of VA’s as employees as opposed to just outsourcing. Actually treat them like your employees (THINK: new hire feeling / training program, onboarding, reviews etc.)
I think of VA’s as mercenaries (or specialists)... They have a specific skillset you are hiring for whereas employees are often jacks-of-all-trades.
Not paying for their supplies in the office (laptop etc), you don’t even need an office. Instead of having a 5-10 person team in an office, everyone can work remote.

UPCOMING Workshops & Online Courses:
I have a series of workshops and online courses for my fellow Entreprenuers, Content Creators and Side Hustle Masters designed to teach you how to "Clone Yourself" (by working with VA's).
If you can relate to feeling overwhelmed by the number of projects and tasks you take on..
If you would label yourself as a workaholic, and if you ever wake-up in the middle of the night thinking about WORK…
THEN these workshops are for you!...
