In this episode, I discuss how getting help in your business will allow you to be more successful and ultimately get a lot more done. Whether it be a spouse or a virtual assistant, letting someone else do teachable tasks will make a huge difference to your bottom-line.
In my business I have a partner that I trust completely and I know has my back. That partner is my wife. We started our real estate investing business together and have been working well ever since. If you don’t have a spouse that’s involved in your real estate investing business, you might want to seriously consider hiring a VA . A VA, or virtual assistant, will be able to do the tasks that absorb a lot of your time, but aren’t necessarily the best use of your time.
A couple of sources for finding a VA are:
These are just a few sources for finding a virtual assistant. I currently use a virtual assistant that I found on oDesk. So far it is working out very well and I will slowly increase their workload and responsibilities as our comfort level with each other grows.
If you are a brand-new investor or have not yet done your first deal, you might want to hold off on hiring an assistant. You should learn how to do everything in your business before you hand off the responsibility to an assistant. If you don’t know how to do these tasks, you can’t teach them to someone else.
