This is a special episode because I’m talking with my friend and business mentor Jen Lehner. I was at an in-person mastermind hosted by Jen when the idea for this podcast came to life!
We talk about a ton of great info and dive into planning, execution, and what it takes to build a team. Be ready to be inspired!
Here are the key insights:
Why do 90-day sprints work? Jen shares the philosophy for this and why it is so powerful.
Of course we talk systems. This is one of the things that Jen helped me create and now I’m teaching my clients to do this because it works!
Hear how easy it is to create your own systems. Hint: think checklist.
Systems as confidence builders? Jen and I break this down too.
How does having a VA help with systems? This is key! If you don’t have time to delegate or teach others what you do then you have to hear how Jen breaks this down.
Do you think that no one can do things like you do them? I did too! Guess what? I now know how to teach the way I want them done.
What are wish list trainings? This is a game-changer!
How do you find a VA? I didn’t know how to find the right person, much less knowing how to vet their qualifications or set up an agreement/offer. Jen’s program was a huge help with this part of the process.
How paying a lower hourly rate overseas works? I’m sure this is a big question for you too. Jen outlines why.
Why a trial week helped me get clear about hiring my VA.
The key to success with your VA? Making them part of the team. Hear how I did this. It has made a huge difference.
Hiring a VA + having systems is key.
Hiring, training, onboarding – all of it can be a pleasure when you have a process. I break down how I give my VA ownership and it’s great for both of us.
How great would it be to feel like someone has your back in your business?
I wasn’t sure I was ready for this because I was so busy. Ironic I know. I now have a true team member who doesn’t just do the work. She brings ideas, provides feedback, and is invested in the success of my business.
Final advice: start before you think you are ready!
