I wanted to share a sneak peek from my How to Utilize a VA in your Biz Master class 👀

I have been in business for 2+ years now, and I have learned a thing or two about outsourcing from both sides. Not only am I the person that my clients outsource to, I have hired my own team as well. I thought I knew what I was talking about, but I didn’t until I actually hired my own team and got to experience the limiting beliefs and scarcity around outsourcing in my own business.

Here are my top three tips on how to outsource 👇🏼

Create a boundary around your communication. Find a way that you like to communicate and STICK TO IT. It could be texting, voxer, trello, slack, FB messenger, emails, etc. Whatever it is, only communicate about work through it. Tasks will get lost if you are all over the place.

Use a Project Management system. Write 👏 Everything 👏 Down 👏. Especially on your team meetings, write everything that you talk about down. Take notes during the session, or record the session to look back on. You NEED to make everything that you talk about into a task that you can complete. This will help your business stay organized. This will help your business move forward seamlessly. This will help YOU as the business owner see how much your VA actually does to support you. Some of my favourite project management systems are Trello — works best for a smaller team — Clickup or Asana.

You can set this project management up however you please, just make sure you are asking “do you need a task for that?

Utilize your VA. Your virtual assistant cannot read your mind. I offer support packages of 10 or 20 hours. Those packages expire after 30 days or 60 days respectively. If I am reaching out to you, or your VA is reaching out to you to support you, and you are not sending any tasks our way, your hours will expire. Nobody likes wasted hours, so utilize your VA. 🙏
