Everything Outsourcing with Meredith Raber
As a mompreneur, you can do anything, but it is essential to remember that you can’t do everything. You must learn how to delegate. Delegation creates room for you to concentrate on the most critical functions of your business.
Do you want to outsource some tasks, but you have no idea where to start? Meredith Raber helps us understand the outsourcing process.
How do you know it’s time to start outsourcing in your business? (02:44-03:18)
When you discover your to-do list is filled with tasks, you shouldn’t be doing.
How should you prepare for a new team member? (03:54-05:30)
Preparation begins by getting your business processes in place. You can use zoom or loom to record as you work. The recording will work as a guide for the new team member.
Where can you find team members? (06:18-08:51)
Depending on your needs, there are different places that you can find a virtual assistant. If you need help with one project, Fiverr is a good place. If you need someone for the long term, Facebook groups are awesome.
Keep in mind that before you hire a virtual assistant, you need to identify the tasks you need help with. Also, once you find a possible match, it is important to get on a video conference with them to know what their personality is like.
How do you budget for a new team member? (09:31-11:29)
The budgeting process begins by identifying the skills and the number of hours your business needs. Different VAs have different pricing structures.
What does the hiring process entail? (11:57-14:16)
Depending on what you are looking for, it is essential to consider the skills, personality, and communication.
What does the interview process look like? (16:14-18:23)
The first step is writing down all the tasks you need help with and the skills needed. Next, come up with questions revolving around your business and have video conferences with the shortlisted candidates to find out who suits you best.
