I've had a virtual assistant for a number of years for my training business, but no help with my origination business. This is something I've struggled with, as I know many of you do as well. Here are a few of my struggles as I've gone down this road:
- How to find the right person. I don't want someone that will want to originate on their own after I train them. Personality is priority. Ability to learn and attention to detail important as well
- How much to pay, bonus etc.
- Licensed or not?
- How do I keep them busy without it sucking the life out of me?
- What tasks?
I will blog about this journey to hopefully help those of you that are looking to hire an assistant. Let me know if you have any specific questions about this topic.
