017: What to Do Now That You’ve Found a Virtual Assistant

I love watching movies. Most people do, but I actually prefer a good TV series to a movie. You can tell so much more of a story when you have an entire season to explore the characters and develop their story arch. I’m an actor, so when I watch TV or movies, I find myself diving deep into the world they create. My training almost forces me to connect with the characters on another level, as I imagine what it’s like to portray the people I see on screen. Because of this connection, I’m frequently left wanting to know what happens after the movie. This is why I prefer a TV series. You get to see a longer form story of their life. It’s also why I …

015: Why Your Virtual Assistant is Smarter Than You

First Name Email* SEND ME THE CHECKLIST! On today’s episode, I’m going to challenge some of the business owner ego I know some of you have. I realize I’m only about one sentence in, and I’ve mentioned you have an ego problem. Sorry. Not Sorry. I can start off with an insult because, admittedly, as a business owner I’m just as guilty of a large ego—what do they say, takes one to know one. Right? But hear me out. We’ve stepped out on our own, which is scary. Some of us have built something from nothing. That’s something to be …
