Turnover can crush a business and slow it down really fast. We know from experience. When we were scaling and hiring for our first eCommerce business, we spent years hiring the wrong person. Time and time again, we would hire someone, they’d get started, and then they’d disappear. Or their attitude as awful. Or the work quality just wasn’t there. Hours of work down the drain. Each time it happened, it set our business back. We hated it. Has this ever happened to you?
Hiring is complex. It’s not a simple task to take on as a business owner and it requires the right playbook to get you A+ hires. If you’re struggling to hire the right people, it may very well be because you don’t have the right hiring system in place yet. That’s 100% okay. We went years hiring without a good system in place…and we paid for it. Through taking this Formula, you’re going to get our exact hiring playbook so you have a strong foundation moving forward. Hiring without an effective system can and will lead to bad hires. Don’t make that mistake again.
How many tasks do you have on your plate right now? Probably too many to even count, right?! Scaling a business requires constant delegation. If you don’t, you end up working 10+ hours per day IN the business on menial and repetitive tasks. You never have time to work ON the business thinking about strategy, growth, and scale. A reliable VA can turn the tables. A reliable VA can take small, time consuming tasks off your plate so you can focus on the bigger picture. They can communicate with you each day regarding their tasks, they can take on new projects as you have them, and they can be a strong backbone to your business.
When we started building our first business, we did EVERYTHING. Bookkeeping, inventory management, customer service, product listing, sales, marketing, design…you name it and one of us did it. We loved setting everything up, but then we were stuck. We couldn’t think of how to grow because we were so wrapped up in the operations and nitty-gritty of the business. Sound familiar? We knew something had to change and that’s when we were introduced to the idea of virtual assistants. It would be one of the most game changing discoveries we ever made. And it set us on a new path towards being actual business owners and not just business doers.
Imagine a team of 10+ VAs working seamlessly together running the entire operations of your business. Is that a dream or what?! Once you have the system to hire and onboard the first VA, you have the power and knowledge to build a reliable team of VAs to manage your entire business. Instead of being the one that creates new processes and gets stuck within them, you become the owner who quickly passes the new process off to one of your VAs. Over time, you even set up levels of leadership within your team of VAs so even less depends on you.
Communication is everything when managing people. Whether in an office or remote, a team can’t reach their highest potential without effective communication. Without set communication channels and check ins set up, teams can disconnect and lose focus on growing the business. We’ve seen it happen plenty of times with our companies and with clients we’ve worked with. It absolutely cannot be something that you overlook. It can make or break the future growth of your business. We’re here to make sure that you don’t make that vital mistake and that you have a proven communication playbook for managing your team. You ready?
Is your team all A players? Is there anyone on the team that holds the entire team back? One bad egg can poison the entire team and slow growth. In our 10+ years of hiring, we’ve seen plenty of bad eggs and their immediate impact on the rest of the team. If you’re dreaming of growing a dream team and scaling faster, you need to be critical in your interview and onboarding processes. Looking at just one’s resume and skills isn’t enough. You need to look at their cultural fit, their communication habits, and their overall attitude. With these criteria, you can pick the A players out of the haystack and build a team focused on driving growth for your business. Don’t you wish you had all A players?
Hiring a virtual assistant doesn’t have to be full time. I repeat, you do not have to hire a virtual assistant for 40 hours per week. Virtual assistants are amazing hires because you can start them at 5 or 10 hours per week then slowly increase their hours as your business grows and you can afford them for more time. If you’re thinking that this Formula is only for people hiring full time VAs, please know that you can hire virtual assistants for as little as 5 to 10 hours per week and still utilize the systems and processes from the Formula.
100%. Virtual assistants don’t only work for one type of business. They can work with Amazon sellers, Shopify store owners, real estate agents, SASS companies, agencies, restaurants, coaches, and tons of other businesses. If you have repetitive tasks that you need to take off your plate so you can focus on more important things in your business, a virtual assistant is exactly what you need. In the Formula, you’ll learn all about the systems and strategies that you can apply to your business (no matter what it is) so you can save more time and money on a daily basis.
Great question! We get this one all of the time. Virtual assistants range between $5 to $10 per hour depending on their experience and the skill set that you’re looking to hire them for. We go into this in more depth in the Formula as well giving you a good baseline for what to expect when it comes to pricing for virtual assistants and how it can change slightly when you’re looking to hire someone more specialized like a web developer or expert copywriter.
If you answered “Yes” to any of the above questions, this Formula is perfect for you. We’ve spent 10+ years recruiting, interviewing, hiring, and managing hundreds of virtual assistants while scaling our 2 businesses, one which was sold with a team of 45+ VAs. We had the same exact struggles hiring and we never could find a reliable source of information online that could give us the playbook we needed. So we went out and built it ourself. This Formula will give you the exact steps you can take to build your dream business with a reliable and skilled team of VAs. You owe it to yourself to use this Formula so you can truly scale your business how you want to.
Definitely! The systems and processes that are outlined in the formula are skills that you’ll need while growing your business now and in the future. The crazy thing…you’ll probably need these skills faster than you can imagine right now. The day that you get run down with too many repetitive tasks is the time that you’ll want this information so you can easily and quickly pass it off to a virtual assistant. Wouldn’t you rather gain the skills now rather than scramble to learn them once you’re already overwhelmed with work?
By the end of the formula, you’ll have a system and set of processes that you can use time and time again to remove work from your plate and pass it off to a reliable virtual assistant. You’ll gain the freedom to work on what is most important in your business so that you can keep growing without pausing because of too much work on your plate.
