( do I need a virtual assistant?)
A Virtual Assistant can save you two of your most precious resources: time and money. As a business owner, you should be focused on your products or services and growing your business – not worried about day to day tasks.
An assistant should be your number-one most important hire because they are freeing up your time, which is worth far more than whoever else you might be hiring ............. treat your virtual assistant role like it’s the most important role in your company -- because it just might be. ~ ~ Brandon Turner- Real Estate Investor and Co-host of the BiggerPockets Podcast!

There is no training required on your part. But since we love to do things YOUR way, it is a great idea for you to explain to us how you would like your tasks completed. This may be as simple as a document with instructions, or a screen recording video with instructions. We are super-faster learners with years of experience. Most clients find they spend around an hour on coaching, then provide ongoing feedback!
