Entrepreneur & Investor
Yes ! I am the co host of this show with the awesome Matt Malouf but that does not mean I can't rate the show. I have learnt so much myself the simple act of putting this show together and delivering it with Matt. We unearth new ways of solving problems in the virtual world and feed off each others ideas and the ideas of the epic guests we interview to make each of our businesses even better.
Anyone looking to get success with Virtual teams and not just 'hire' them should get onto this show and listen regularly.
Quality Content from the genuine article
I have seen my fair share of business "coach" wannabees and folks who can't do anything technical but are good salespeople. Barbara Turley is the opposite of that. She lives and breathes automation in business and striving for work/life balance. Virtual Success show has become one of the very few things I make time for in my busy week because it is full of real, useful, inspiring content and is not just a sales pitch. If you plan on growing your business and want the real how to on modern tools like CRM's + Task Management platforms and how to avoid the common mistakes of outsourcing (I have made quite a few of them) you could do a lot worse than listen to this show.
Great Show - worth the listen!
As a member of a virtual team, The Virtual Success Show has helped me reach a new level of understanding into the client/ VA relationship. Matt Malouf and Barbara Turley really know their stuff!! They don’t only talk the talk, they walk the walk and often speak from personal experience on a variety of issues ranging from onboarding a new VA or virtual team member through to how to delegate and communicate effectively to set your VA up to win. And they don’t only share their own experiences but are frequently interviewing a host of fantastic guests who have all gained huge success from having virtual teams, in their own right. So for anyone looking to enter the world of Virtual Teams, or even if you are already there, The Virtual Success Show is a great source of knowledge and definitely worth tuning in to.
