Newsletter 13th January 2022: Take the solo out of preneur 💖success without the overwhelm

by | Newsletters


I know there’s a sort of pride in going it alone, like the Lone Ranger against the outlaws.

But even he had Tonto 🤣

And there comes a time when you realise that doing it all yourself, though not impossible, is no fun at all.

I got to that point late September 2020 and signed up for a crazily expensive course on finding your perfect VA.

Last time I looked that course was $1600. Ouch! ( I paid $1300 😱)

But crazily expensive turned out to be not so crazy. Though still nail bitingly expensive.

I found my perfect VA.

Within weeks, Kareen was on board and had found her feet.

Suddenly there were an extra 8 hours work getting done a day!

What could you do with an extra 8 hours a day? 40 hours a week?


My business never looked back.

Now I’m thinking about expanding my team so that I can grow my business even more.

Without working 24 x 7.

But maybe, you don’t think a VA is within your budget (never mind an expensive course).

That’s okay. I have a three-part solution for that.

💡Start small. If you can’t afford a full time VA,  think about taking someone on for 10 or 20 hours a week. Even that will make a huge difference.

💡Hire overseas. The best overseas VAs are in the Philippines and the currency differences mean that a VA is super affordable there yet your VA will be very well paid by local standards. A huge win-win!

💡Learn how to hire the best VA out there for your business with this course. (and don’t worry, it’s just $49 not $1600!)

Even though I had the expensive course, I bought this one last year as it’s by the American guy who knows the most about hiring in the Philippines. He owns the agency where I found Kareen and which the expensive course recommends.

Of course, you can put up an ad and advertise at his agency onlinejobs.ph without taking a course and get a VA tomorrow.

But that’s when you’re likely to come unstuck. There’s a multi-step process in the course that John teaches that is very similar to the one I used that gives you the best possible chance of finding the right person. This saves a lot of hassle and money employing unsuitable people.
