About the Book    About the Author

Why are you doing EVERYTHING yourself?

What would you do if you had even one more hour a day devoted solely to growing your business and making more money?

Virtual assistants will make your life easier by taking the stress out of your business life. As a small business owner, you need more time so you can make more money and stay competitive in an ever-changing world.

If you’re spending less than 70 percent of your time on work that doesn’t generate revenue, isn’t building relationships, or isn’t creating new products, then you’re not spending enough time on your business. It means you’re spending too much time in your business.

This book will show you why Virtual Assistance (VA) is the answer. Hire the Right Virtual Assistant is the complete guide to:

• Know what a VA is and how they differ from Executive Assistants

• Understand the benefits and need of a VA – it’s more than just outsourcing

• Hiring the right VA the first time in less time than you think

• Finally be able to use the VA right away to make the biggest impact in your business and free up your time

If you had time right now to work on your business instead of in it, what could you do? Could you make a sale? Visit a client and earn more business? Make another 20 calls a day to land more clients? Work the pipeline? Network? Think about your proven method to gain more clients. Using that method, how many more clients could you have if you had more time? This is where you put a VA to work for you. They work in your business so you can work on your business.

I promise that hiring a VA will be the best decision you make for your business. You will get back your time.
