Fast Track Your Business Growth by Hiring a First-Rate Virtual Assistant

Are you ready to hire your first virtual assistant?

Having a VA will free up your valuable time and eliminate the routine, daily tasks so you can focus on business growth activities like marketing, developing new products and services, and more!

Think about it - by giving a couple of hours of work to a virtual assistant, what could you achieve by freeing up this time in your day?

What you'll learn

In this course you’ll prepare your business to take on a VA, follow a step-by-step recruiting process, find strategies to build solid systems, and create in-depth training so your chosen VA will be effective and productive as soon as possible.

This course is broken down into 12 modules to take you step-by-step through hiring and onboarding your virtual assistant and delegation to them.

  • Get into an open and receptive mindset for a virtual assistant, so you can see the advantages for your business and be in the right frame of mind to proceed with recruitment
  • Identify the tasks you can delegate to a virtual assistant and plan ahead for hiring, so you know exactly what you want them to do and when your business will benefit from the recruitment process
