If you tuned in to Productivity Straight Talk last week, you heard all about how you should K.I.S.S. – keep it stupid simple, that is.

This week, we build upon that notion of keeping it simple by simplifying your role in your business.

Sure, you’re the boss, the big wig, the CEO, but do you really need to be the graphic designer, copywriter, and social media strategist too?

Do those things light you up?

If so and you’re good at them, great. Perhaps that’s the best use of your time.

But if they drain you or you suck at them, what then?

My guest on the podcast this week, Mary Baird-Wilcock reminds us that, “You’re in charge of building a business that actually serves you, so keep things simple.”

And that includes simplifying your multitude of roles by delegating.

In this day and age, that’s made super simple by technology and the willingness of skilled individuals to be virtual assistants.

In this episode of Productivity Straight Talk, I sit down with Mary who runs a team of virtual assistants from three countries as a division of her event management business. We discuss best practices for finding and hiring reliable and competent virtual assistants who will help up-level your business.

 Ready to simplify your task load, reduce overwhelm, and hire virtual support?
