Room to Breathe

How to Work Successfully With a Virtual Assistant

Are you ready to start working with a Virtual Assistant?

Every business owner knows what overwhelm feels like. For some, it’s a short-lived unpleasant experience. But others recognise it as a sign that for further growth they need extra support. 

Working with a Virtual Assistant (VA) can make overwhelm a thing of the past. It enables you to grow your business, spend more time with the people you love and deliver more to your customers. 

You have time to innovate, create and develop new income streams. To work on the things that light your fire.

But getting from “I need a VA” to “I have a VA” can be overwhelming

If it’s your first time working with a VA you’ll have a lot of questions. 

  • How do you know that you need a VA? 
  • How can you make the most of your time, and your VA’s? 
  • How can you avoid making expensive mistakes by picking the wrong VA?
  • How do you communicate effectively so when you’re not available your VA knows exactly what to do?
  • How do you know which VA is the right one for you and your business?
  • How can you decide what to outsource and what to do yourself?

Room to Breathe answers these questions for you. And a whole lot more!

“This programme is the definitive ‘no brainer’ investment in your business.

If you haven’t scaled beyond your own ability to run your business then this is for you.

Great insights and experience shared clearly and simply by Marina – great programme!

Rob – Business Coach

Hi there, I’m Marina

Having supported solopreneurs for over six years, I’ve seen the impact that working with the right person can have on a solopreneur’s personal life, professional life and the trajectory of their business.

I’ve seen the innovation, creativity and passion that arise when people have room to breathe in their business.

I’ve also seen the problems that can arise when solopreneurs bring the wrong person into their business and the impact that can have on service levels, productivity and profitability. 

I have funnelled all of that experience into this course, so that more people can experience the synergy of working successfully with a Virtual Assistant.

Are you ready?

What I found incredibly useful are the questions Marina asks you to consider in each module, to provide greater clarity on your own business and ensure this is the right time and space for you to work with a VA.

In short, this course is a practical deep dive into everything you need to know to find your ideal VA and make your business more productive and profitable.”

Justine McGrath – Executive Coach and Trainer

How would it feel to:

  • Know exactly what you need to do to get started with outsourcing
  • Understand the type of person you need so you can find them more easily
  • Have the right systems in place so your VA can hit the ground running
  • No longer feel alone in your business because you have a trusted sidekick
  • Take time off without constantly worrying and checking your inbox
  • Spend more time in your Zone of Genius
  • Focus on higher-value work
  • Re-discover your passion for your business

Everything you need to know to work successfully with your VA

Module 1: The Outsourcing Mindset

What is holding you back from outsourcing work? As a solopreneur letting go of control can be challenging. When you finish this module you’ll understand your fears and see what you have to gain when you let go of them.

Module 2: Systems Before People

Having the right systems in place will make working with a VA a breeze. You already have processes for your business. This module helps you to record them so that your VA has everything they need from day one. 

Module 3: Finding The Right Person

Choosing the right VA for your business means finding someone compatible with your ways of working. Learn everything you need to know before your discovery call with a potential VA.

Module 4: Making It All Work

Bring it all together so that you and your new VA can collaborate in harmony. How to communicate effectively, work remotely and respect each other’s boundaries. Important details on getting started – and finishing up – with your VA.

Marina takes the time to go so much deeper than the practicalities, and her focus on the mindset aspects of this shift into outsourcing is a huge part of what makes her advice and teachings so incredibly valuable

If you’re at the stage where you know you can’t fly solo in your business anymore and you need a Virtual Assistant to lighten your load – but you’re thinking “ohflippinheckwheredoistart??”…

Invest in this course and avail of Marina’s expert guidance. You won’t regret it :)”
