How to Find the Perfect Virtual Professional for Your Business

You’ve heard the phrase: “It takes a village to run a small business.” Or something like that…

Entrepreneurs trying to create a successful small business know how true this can be. We start out doing everything ourselves – and I do mean EVERYTHING!

  • Hate accounting and haven’t a clue what the difference is between a liability and an expense? Doesn’t matter! You can spend days/weeks/months figuring it out ourselves and save a few bucks.
  • Can’t write your way out of a paper bag? Who cares! No one will notice a few typoss, missing, and badly wrote English.
  • Have no website development expertise whatsoever? Forget about it! You can use a template that thousands of others have used in your industry. Besides, the template company says you can have your website up and running in just hours.
  • Listening to other business owners discuss getting clients through social media but you don’t know a tweet from a twerp? No worries! Just ignore all that and get business the “old-fashioned way” – sit in your office and wait for clients to find you.

OK – you get my point. No one has the time or expertise to do EVERYTHING that’s needed to run a successful small business.

But where do you find the help you need? And, how do you know if they’re right for YOU?

Luckily, Jessica Maes has the answers. She has created two workbooks to guide you through the process of deciding what you want (need) to delegate, the type of assistant that will complement your working style, and even provides a listing of Virtual Professionals that she personally recommends. (Including the Home Page Construction Company for website development and maintenance!)

Start out with her Delegate Or Bust! workbook with step-by-step exercises to get you delegating!

Then check out her 2011 Delegation Rolodex – a directory of experts in accounting, social media, administration, project management, website development, shopping cart management, product development…the list goes on and on.

Don’t stunt the growth of your company – get some help! I guarantee, you’ll wish you’d tried it sooner.
