Quick tips on working successfully with a VA:

  • Be crystal clear on expectations (task and timing)
  • Over-communicate in the beginning
  • Don’t micromanage - leaving the country helps!
  • Use technology to share and track tasks (ToDoist/Asana/Trello)
  • Give specific feedback when things are not working - Radical Candor / ruinous empathy vs. obnoxious aggression
  • Don’t hold back on appreciation and recognition
  • Create a standing check-in meeting
  • Ask for Friday status reports

I am not exaggerating when I say that hiring a rockstar virtual assistant will be one of the best decisions you have ever made for your business and your well being.
