What’s The Best First Task With Your New Virtual Assistant? – Practical Advice

You’ve finally hired a VA. You may have followed my last advice and hired only one applicant. Or maybe you didn’t. Either way, you’ve now come to this: giving your new VA the first task.

I believe that the first task is special. It should be something that could test your working relationship together. 

In this video, I share with you:

  • what kind of first task you should give your VA,
  • why this is important, and
  • what you should hope to achieve after.

This practical advice is one of many. Head on to our outsourcing education page to catch the whole series. You can also subscribe to our blog to be notified when new videos are published. Lastly, remember to subscribe to our YouTube channel too, we’ll be releasing new videos every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month.

    Hi everyone. I hope there is a company who can hire a newbie in this field like me. Someone who can believe that a beginner like me will be one of the best employee someday.
