I recently had the chance to connect with Bryan Miles of eaHELP to talk about remote va (virtual assistance) at the executive assistant level. Here’s the video interview – enjoy!

I’ve sat down to talk with Bryan in the past, but I recently became a client taking on an EA for my own business myself and have been very impressed with their on-boarding process where they assign an additional “implementation manager” who helps with the transition of setting up the relationship and progression of initial delegation over a couple of weeks.

While I’ve used a bunch of project-specific and task-specific VA’s in the past, this is the first time I’m taking on a VA to support me across my entire portfolio of projects and business workflow.

If you’ve had the benefit of a remote assistant, would you share one tip or some of your experience with regard to getting the most out of the relationship and resource? Please leave a comment below.

It still surprises me a bit that whenever I mention that I actively use virtual assistance across the various projects I’m managing, it is still somewhat of a novelty.  The majority of people have not used any sort of remote help. . . yet.

But whenever I have walked someone through the process of finding and utilizing outsourced help, it has been a big win — and in a couple of cases, they have become basically addicted to scaling their work with the help of remote assistants.   This can come in form form of help with small finite tasks as well as hiring contractors to do full blown large-scale projects.
