You've probably heard many people talk about the thought of hiring a Virtual Assistant (VA). I had heard about them for years and only just hired my first VA this year. I'm a firm believer in the benefit of using a Virtual Assistant. I wish a podcast like this existed two years ago when I left my career in insurance to start my own business. I'm doing pretty well today. Though, knowing what I know now, I can only imagine how much I could have accomplished had I known more about Virtual Assistants a few years ago. Do you have questions? This is the podcast devoted to getting you the answers you are looking for.

The How To's of getting a VA
Good coverage on the "how to's" of getting a VA, what to look for, delegating your work, interviewing a VA to see if you are comparable.
Just about ANYONE can utilize a Virtual Assistant
At Big Cat Rescue we have utilized Virtual Assistants for many years but hadn't heard the term VA until recently. Cliff's show is helping our non profit, which provides permanent care to 100+ lions, tigers, etc., to achieve our mission of no more cats in cages. His insightful tips and interactive style enable us to learn from others and to seek out new ways to enlist the help of people world wide who care about animals. I just can't wait for each new episode.
Very practical, very helpful
I've hired a VA recently and this podcast has really helped to give me ideas on how to best utilize him for maximum productivity. Cliff's also helped me to realize how important it is to treat the VA well...as a part of my company...as a part of my family. These principles have helped me to keep one of the greatest VA's in the world :)
