About the Episode:

As a small business owner, it can be hard to know where to start when hiring a virtual assistant. Knowing when to hire, how much to pay, how to onboard successfully — these issues and more are common concerns.

Meridith suggests that small businesses hire a VA before they absolutely need one. By hiring early, this allows the entrepreneur to find the right VA without rushing. If rushed, there’s a good chance the VA might not be the best fit, and the entrepreneur won’t have time to set them up for success.

In Episode 153, Meridith McCarty talks about this and so many more helpful tips on how to make hiring a virtual assistant a success. Listen in!
