Why did Kelly decide to use a VA? I decided to use a VA because I was getting overwhelmed in the admin tasks that take away from my researching and staying on top of trends and sources.
How did Kelly chose THSS as her VA? I chose Linda because she is MAC proficient and had good references. I initially interviewed her on the phone after doing some checking on the Internet.
How has a VA helped Kelly focus on her business? Using Linda has been helpful to my business. She keeps me on task so I don’t fall too far behind and get frustrated with getting behind in admin and support.
