Are You Ready to Hire Your First Virtual Assistant?

On today’s show: maybe you’ve heard expert advice saying you should hire a VA—a virtual assistant. You might have even heard that advice from us, on this show.

But what exactly should you hire a VA for? And is hiring a VA really worth the money?

Those are two questions we explore on our coaching call with Ben Marcoux who lives in Rhode Island, USA. 

Ben found himself wondering why in the world he would want to hire a VA in the first place. Then, after taking the leap, he wishes he had done it years ago. 

Plus, Clay and I share our best advice for making the most of your virtual assistant and we talk about scaling your business vs growing it. 

Let's dive in!
