“Delegate or outsource everything except the stuff you are awesome at.” – Cameron Herold, Business Coach, Business Mentor and CEO Coach
No one can possibly do everything by themselves if they want to succeed.
Wouldn’t you rather be preparing that kick-ass lecture for your next speaking engagement instead of spending countless hours replying to each and every email in your inbox, billing clients and sifting through piles of bills?
Let’s get right down to it— it’s time to outsource stuff to a virtual assistant.
