We officially hired our first team member for our Freewyld brand!

We’ve hired a Virtual Assistant (VA) named Mei who will help us start building our brand.

On this edition of STR Conversations, Eric and I share how we worked with a company called Virtual Staff Finder to hire our VA and the process they used to help us find the right Virtual Assistant for our Freewyld team.

We share the 3 most common questions students in Legend X have about hiring a VA, plus the biggest mistakes people make when hiring that can lead to hiring the wrong team member. Eric shares the plus-minus time tracking process he uses to determine which tasks to delegate, plus, I share my secret for accomplishing more tasks each day.

We discuss how to use a job scorecard to improve your job description and increase your chances of hiring the RIGHT person for the job.
