How My VAs Support Me And My Team

Hey there!

Today, because I got a question on this from a viewer, let’s take a look at one of the crucial behind-the-scenes mechanisms of my process: my VAs.

What’s a VA? It’s the abbreviation for “virtual assistant,” and boy does she.

The word “virtual” has come to stand for AI as well, but that’s not the case here.

Meet one of my VAs, Stina.

Hope this helps!

David

  1. I imagine having two virtual assistants really helps take things off your plate and helps you feel a little less overwhelmed so you can focus on other things. I wonder if I’ll ever need one? Thanks for the video David.

  2. Wow I never thought of a VA for Voice Over Artists. I would love to get into this. Is there any special experience necessary

    1. No. I wouldn’t suggest those sites. One (Rachel) I found through a referral from Kristine Oller (https://kristineoller.com/) and one I found via Great Assistants (Stina) – they both had to ace skill testing that most candidates on FIverr and Upwork would fail.

  3. I have learnt to narrate and produce the Audiobooks I do. I manage that reasonably well, but I am bewildered by the selling of myself and my product, and at this late stage in my life I have no energy to learn. I want to put all my passion into what I can do. A VA sounds like what I need, but I’m afraid to give up my independence, also I don’t have money to spend up front to hire someone. I guess what I want is someone who looks at my work, decides they can help us both make money, and take over the selling side. I’m nor sure that asking for this on this platform is correct, but perhaps you can lead me in the right direction. Thanks for”everyday you talk to us”. It’s so helpful.

  4. David, I agree with Linda Roper that marketing myself and promotion is not my thing. I hate selling the same way I hate vacuuming (which is why I have a Roomba). So is there a VA that would do that for me? And please tell us: what is the Web link for your new VA?

  5. That probably wouldn’t be a VA – that would probably be an MA – a marketing assistant. Two different creatures.
