Tips on how to grow your business with Virtual Assistants with Barbara Turley

• The Virtual Hub, really, we recruit, train, and manage Virtual Assistants
• All the businesses I was working with had the same problem; they all were too small revenue wise to hire staff, but unless they hired the staff they were never really going to be able to grow it properly, and get out of the trenches of the terrible overwhelm of running your own business. Hiring Virtual Assistants was part of the answer.
• Offshore has been held as the panacea to solve all cost efficiencies and lots of sort of problems in business. I will say it’s not as simple as people think…
• No matter what size your business is if there’s no profit left, there is no business.
• But unless you’ve got a business that has a very clear vision, then you have a strategy attached to that vision, and attached to your strategy are all your recurring task lists and project task lists and processes that are involved in running your business; your likelihood of success is lowered if you’re not really having a focus on those kinds of things.
• We have some outsourcing strategy consultants that everybody gets to speak to first. Their job on that call is to dig and see, is this business ready for virtual assistants?
• Remember that every single business, no matter how small or how large, actually had departments. I always recommend that people just list out all those different little departments, and then underneath those departments, the first task that you want to do is to list what are all the tasks that need to be done daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, annually.
