Some guy messaged me just now, disappointed that hiring a VA for his firm wasn’t just a few clicks.
I told him that when it comes to finding people, it’s more like dating than Uber Eats.
You have to screen people properly– not just take their word for it.
What SOPs will they be following daily?
Who will they go to if they run into trouble or need someone to talk to?
A VA is not a ChatGPT bot with a flesh exterior– they’re humans with families, hopes, and dreams– just like you and me.
If you have a project– something with a defined end goal– hire a freelancer on UpWork.
But if you have an ongoing function, hire a VA to fill that process.
Free up your time to make high-impact moves– not low-value, repetitive activities.
We have a step-by-step guide on the VA hiring process that hundreds of founders have used to hire their first VA— or first 20 VAs.
