About This Class

In this class I'm going to walk you through the process of hiring your very own virtual assistant.

Virtual assistants can be used for various tasks such as:

  • Data entry
  • Data research
  • Customer service
  • Email help
  • Organization
  • And lots more

I've typically hired freelancers for anything from web design to writing content. An assistant can be a great asset for you to save tons of time in your business so you can focus on growing your own business.

This course goes in-depth on how I would hire an assistant on the platform UpWork. This is my preferred freelance platform and it works great for finding freelancers of all skill levels and talents.

After completing this course you will have a solid idea of how you can go out and start outsourcing many of the tasks that you may need help with.
