When you know it’s time to outsource, it can be challenging to seek the help you need to really grow your business. This week, episode 110 of the Positively Living Podcast is about why you’re struggling to hire a virtual assistant! 

In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Liz August shares the importance of leveraging the skills of a VA to free up your time and money that can otherwise be spent on revenue-generating tasks and the things you truly enjoy. We also discuss some actionable steps you can take right now to successfully implement the help of a VA.

Liz and I cover the following topics:

  • What a VA is, does, and why you might consider bringing one into your business.  
  • The objections and mindset blocks Liz sees most often that keep entrepreneurs from seeking support. 
  • The number 1 thing you need to do to ensure you receive the efficiency you desire from your VA. 
  • A simple and easy first step that is necessary for you to do before you outsource your work. 

No matter where you are in this process, it’s essential to declutter and simplify first so you identify what’s blocking you and get the systems in place to support outsourcing your tasks.
