Hopefully every business gets to the point where they need help.

It has been easy for me to hire people in my brick an mortar business. I am right there to train them.

It almost seems like a catch 22. Taking the time to train and monitor a VA or doing the tasks my self.

How do I make the transition?

I have the same question as Sheila. I don’t know who to make the transition. By the time I explain what I need… I could almost do it myself.

I like the idea of a VA… I could use some help setting up my Facebook fan page. I look at it and go… “No Way.”

Sheila, that is a tough one, but you need to know when you find the right VA, you won’t have to monitor everything she does. I have several clients that have me do the same thing week after week so I just do it and let them know when it’s done. There is no monitoring to do.

Kathryn, if you have to train the VA to do what you need done and it’s a one time thing, that may not be the right tasks for the VA to do. You need to choose tasks that need to be done on a regular basis so the training is only needed once. Setting up a Facebook fan page and taking care of it on a daily or weekly basis is a great task for a VA. She can make posts daily and answer any questions that come up. I’ve set those up and monitor them regularly. It’s easy for someone who has the time, it’s not easy when you have other tasks that you need to do to grow your business. Does that make sense?
