If you’re drowning with tasks and you don’t know how to get things done, one of the best things to do is to hire a virtual assistant.
It could help you save time and allows you to stay focus on important tasks.
When hiring a virtual assistant you need to screen them first even you acquire them on legit sites like Staff.com and Guru.com, which allows you see their potential.
Having a virtual assistant is a great benefit for your business as long as you know how to find the right person for the job.

A good way to pre-screen an assistant is to hire two VA’s at the same time, assessing them and keeping the person who is the better fit to your business.
Your working style is as variable as there are personalities under the VA’s.
Personally, I found it important to relate to my VA’s as a real person. That’s why I’m interested in working with “nice, human” VA’s rather than professionals.

Before you drown in your work and start to despair – get a virtual assistant!
