How to prepare your business to hire a VA

“I know I need help, but I’m not sure what I need help with.”

 

Does this sound familiar?

 

You won’t believe the amount of conversations I have with business owners that start off this way. They know they need help but they’re not too sure what or how to delegate.

 

The thing is, you can’t delegate well without a plan.

 

Here’s 3 ways you can prepare for a Virtual Assistant.

 

1. Tasks
Take some time to look at the tasks you do on a regular basis and determine which tasks do not need to be completed by you. Create a list of 2 or 3 tasks that can be completed by your VA.

 

2. Passwords
Some clients are nervous about this, however if you want to get the job done, and don’t want to do it yourself, there is simply no way to get around this. Use a password manager that allows you to securely share your information with your Assistant. Get your account ready to go before your VA starts working with you.

 

3. Communication
Choosing how you wish to communicate with your Virtual Assistant is important. There are a variety of ways to communicate, such as email, weekly calls, WhatsApp conversations or project management applications, for example Trello. Having this set up, or at least decided on, ahead of time is super helpful.

 

Bonus tip: Have patience. A new partnership can take a month or two to figure out what working well together looks like.

 

There you go, the more organised you can be when entering a new work relationship with your VA, the smoother everything will go.
