- Make a plan. Your Virtual Assistant is not able to figure out your needs unless you have determined what your needs are and have communicated those to you. Taking advantage of a strategy session with a coach or an administrative consultant, like Efficient Business Solutions, will help you develop a clear and concise plan with workflow of everything you need to fully communicate your needs to your VA or other outsourced help. This will ultimately save you money through reduced training time and focusing on the right tasks and projects.
- You have the right, and responsibility, to be choosy. You are not simply looking for a warm body to perform some menial tasks. To get the best value, you must do your “due diligence” and find the right Virtual Assistant for you and your business. From your newly developed concise plan you will be able to look for very specific skills and qualities in a VA to support you and your business.
- Your VA is your business partner. Now that you’ve selected the right fit for you and your business, you will be able to build a trust with them and form a true partnership. You be able to work through ideas and share your vision and goals, and their support will help you achieve them. Remember, you are an expert in your field and they are an expert in theirs, so treating the relationship you have with them as a partnership will help strengthen your business goals and outcomes.
