HireMyVA Podcast 114- What are the top lessons you learned in 2021 Pt. 2

I would say Larry, and this is one of the things that does spill over into other areas as well. If you create, I shouldn’t say create, create a community is definitely good and you want to do that, but also make sure that you are in community. We’re built to be in community, the be in community around these different areas, if at all possible, at least the ones that you’re struggling in. So like Larry, you, me and a couple of guys, we are in our own little community where we support each other, spiritually, physically, mentally, everything, right where we meet every Wednesday night. And the last couple of this month, we haven’t met a couple of times just because of the craziness going on, but we went a whole year and we, I think we missed just one time, but we are committed going 2022 to continue to meet every week.

You know, Dave as we were talking about this, we said that really, there’s three separate categories that make for a, kind of an easy framework to, or recovery and they are the Micro Rest , Macro Rest and the Long Term Rest.

Well, let me start with one of our tips that we’ve got. So I guess it may seem obvious, but as we go through these it’s important.

That kind of thing you need to identify what type of leads, what industry type of leads and start and start really defining like what we talked about, your ideal client in a lot of ways.

HireMyVA Podcast 104 – Bringing Out The Best In Others

Well, I think first of all, we need to ask tons of questions, right? Leaders have to do and ask more questions than delivering edicts. If all we’re doing is delivering edicts over and over again. We’re not learning, we’re not learning about our team members and Dave, you know that I’ve got this to-do list, right? That I carry with me everywhere. And at the bottom of it, for anyone, everyone who’s been through any of my programs or Dave programs, my programs, I’ve got a bunch of questions down here at the bottom that I ask my team members on a regular basis.

There’s a group of four guys that we, Dave, you and a couple of our buddies, get together with and we talk about life and what’s going on. Like we were built for community people, and even at my advanced age, I’m learning every single day. Right. And we’re not meant to go through this alone, particularly in the business arena.

HireMyVA Podcast 21 – I’ve never been good at managing people – I’ve tried but its just not me

Well, listen, the great news. I’ve got a good piece of news for these folks who say that is that, you know, like leadership and management skills are learned skills. You can learn how to do this. And we all started somewhere like this. Hey, if you’re just a jerk, that’s a different story. I can’t fix being a jerk. I can’t. And that might be why people don’t want to work for you or with you. If you’ve got an attitude where you are better than other people and you like to manipulate, then this program is not right for you. But if honestly, it’s just that, Hey, I’m, I’m nervous about it.

HireMyVA Podcast 20 I cant afford a Virtual Assistants VA pay and benefits 1

HireMyVA Podcast 20 – I can’t afford a Virtual Assistant’s (VA) pay and benefits

That’s the way that we need to look at virtual assistants is these aren’t expenses. These are investments, they’re investments in your time, they’re investments in your productivity. And most importantly, and this is the thing, the reason we’ve developed this program, it’s an investment in your future. Freedom, for crying out loud. I would not encourage anyone to hire anybody, whether it’s a virtual assistant or it’s an in-house marketing person or in-house operations person or an in-house accounting person who is going to be in your office every day, if they’re not adding more freedom to your life. So when you’re ready to bring someone on board, you need to expect there’s going to be a boost in productivity, somewhere in the organization.
