How To Work Effectively With A Personal Assistant, with Tim Francis

It is NOT easy OR cheap to “hire a VA.” But if done right, it is profoundly transformational not just for your daily workload but for your quality of life.

I recently hosted a comprehensive, two-hour online workshop with the founder of Great Assistant, Tim Francis.

Tim’s company is a three-part hydra: one part recruiting service, one part training program, and one part support system. It addresses not only finding the “right person,” but how you as a leader and manager can become the right person for them.

This workshop was a dive DEEP into the mindset required from both sides, the systems (both procedural and technological) needed to keep everything running smoothly, and some of the pitfalls and unexpected challenges that you may face along the way.
