GH: Hiring Your First Virtual Assistant: When, Where, and How to Do it Right

  1. GH: Hiring Your First Virtual Assistant: When, Where, and How to Do it Right Nick Loper of Side Hustle Nation 1:01:22

We all have a limit to our capacity. For some entrepreneurs and small business owners, that’s a tough pill to swallow.

But when you’re up against that ceiling you’ve got two options. You can:

  1. Settle in.
  2. Get help.

This episode is about growing your team in such a way that you have some breathing room in your schedule and in your mental bandwidth to do the work that’s required of a business owner.

Even though I’ve been hiring virtual help in my businesses since 2005, I’ve still got a lot to learn! This is something that’s been on my mind this year as I think about where I want my current operations to go and who can help get me there.

To help dive into this topic, I’m excited to welcome John Jonas and Nate Hirsch to the show.

Between them, they’ve got more than 60 virtual team members and have been practicing remote management for more than a decade.

They both run platforms to help you make your first virtual hire as well:

  • John heads up, the largest remote job board and resume database for workers in the Philippines.
  • Nate created, a curated freelance marketplace for workers all around the world. He also founded, a monthly bookkeeping service for Ecommerce Sellers/agencies, and where he teaches his hiring processes.

Tune in to hear John and Nate’s take on when it’s time to hire, how to find the best talent for your budget, and some common mistakes to avoid.
