If your dream is to have a business that gives you the freedom to spend uninterrupted time with your family, pursue a passion or take that trip of a lifetime, then you need a team of amazing people you can count on to take care of everything while you’re away.
But, if you’re like most entrepreneurs you don’t have that amazing trusted team, so you take working vacations or rarely take time off because when you do, you have to check in, manage emergencies, deal with customer expectations or still manage the day to day tasks of running a business.
And even when you’re with family and friends, you’re spending half your time worrying about your business, checking for that important email or text or taking just one more phone call.
It’s time to stop being a slave to your business and commit to building an amazing virtual team.
Below are the top 4 things you want to do to make sure you get the right virtual team in place:
- Work with a company that has experience in placing professional virtual assistants. To make sure you are working with a professional placement specialist with an excellent placement record, you should ask for testimonials from current business owners who are working with a virtual team.
- Make sure you clearly communicate your work-style preferences, attitude, and business values. Let the placement specialist know how you want to communicate with your virtual team and provide specific expectations for each job.
- Have each team member’s role clearly identified, so that the placement or matching of the VA to the job can be done effortlessly.
- Schedule a phone call or video conference with each virtual team candidate to make sure your personalities are compatible and their professional skill-set matches the tasks they will be handling for you.
Don’t wait until the “right” time to build a trusted team. Do it now and elevate your business and get back some of your time to enjoy the finer things in life.
