“I think an admin assistant or a virtual assistant is a quote on quote easy first hire that allows you to off hand some of those tasks that you could do a loom video and show somebody how to do this if they don’t know how, I can get somebody in whether it’s scheduling blog content, scheduling email content, jumping in and helping you with DMS, or being in your inbox training them how to to that. I feel like for a lot of solopreneurs myself included it’s fear that keeps us from wanting to pass off the task but if you find the right person to pass that task too it will free up your time.”
