EPISODE #10 - Outsource your way to freedom (what i've learned from hiring over 40 va's)

 

Outsourcing has been quite a big buzzword in business in recent years. 

 

There's a GOOD reason for this.

 

 

How many hours a week could you save by hiring a virtual assistant?

 

In this episode I encourage you to break down every action that happens in your business, and decide what you should specialise in yourself, and what you should outsource.

 

 

One thing you'll learn quickly about outsourcing is that it comes with it's own set of challenges.

 

Your virtual assistants need to be hired, trained and managed properly to ensure the quality of their work remains at a high standard. 

 

That's why I wanted to reveal all my secrets to you in this episode, so you can have the best chance of getting success with your VA's.

 

 

what’s covered in this episode:

 

  • What sort of tasks you should already be outsourcing
  • How to guarantee your staff pay for themselves (4x over)
  • Where's the best place to find virtual assistants?
  • My detailed hiring process to ensure quality staff
  • How to train people to become better than you at a task
  • Why it benefits your business to give VA's regular bonuses 
  • One simple trick to manage your team of VA's
  • How to ensure your VA's work for you long term

    Ollie:
    Just listened to your podcast and found it very enlightening and drawing out many parallels to my day job, which is outsourcing business processes to Indian companies. Everything you said applies - I'd also reiterate the following key messages:

    You need to know your process inside out before you give it to someone else to run...
    Make everything as simple as possible - Show me how Videos and checklists are the way forward - no more than 1 page; don't forget instructions of what the VA should do if something does goes wrong e.g. What do I do when / IF this then do this...

    Only outsource a process that is stable, standardized and repeatable (strip out the unnecessary steps, define templates for useage)

    Have the VA run the "heavy lifting" and collect the data and provide recommendations; the final decision on what to do lies with you
    Best of luck!
