Episode 20 | Why Your Business Needs a Virtual Assistant and How to Find One: An Interview with Jolanta Smulski
Or Listen Here
Your task list never seems to end, Pet Boss. In fact, as your business grows, it seems to just get longer!
What if someone skilled could take some of those tasks off of your plate… and they could do it all remotely?
That’s where a virtual assistant, aka a “VA” comes in.
Whether it’s social media management, email organization, invoicing, inventory tracking, or anything in between that would make your life easier and give you more time, a VA might be the perfect fit for you.
At Pet Boss Nation, we get a lot of questions about hiring a VA for your business. Where can you find one? Which jobs can you delegate to them? How much should you pay them?
So we brought in an expert to discuss those exact burning questions. Jolanta Smulski of Pet Pro Media is a digital strategist in the pet industry who is amazing at her job (we know from experience).
In this episode, Candace chats with Jolanta to find out:
- How to structure the logistics of working with a virtual assistant, including fair pay, contracts, and communication.
- Why it is so helpful for a pet business owner to work with a VA.
- How to overcome whatever is holding you back from hiring a VA to help you in your pet business.
- And so much more!
Listen in to find out why hiring a VA could be the right move for you and exactly where to find one!
