How to Contract a Virtual Assistant

Posted on

Hiring a Virtual Assistant, what you need to do before you decide to hire/contract/work/invest on a VA for you and your business.

Question: Your business is growing, right? Great!

 

But do you have the tools, processes, and procedures in place to hire/contract people in order to continue that growth without overwhelming yourself?

 

Well, now’s a great time to take charge and see where you may need help, as well as what processes and procedures you need to put in place to get this process started!

Here are somethings to ponder...

So, if your thoughts are to grow your business (today or in the future), you have to understand that it’s going to require lots and lots of work, if you want this contracting/recruiting process to work!

 

Things you must consider before you decide to hire employees, or recruit freelancers because (trust me), they will either “make you or break you”…YES, I SAID IT!

 

Also, keep in mind that it’s your responsibility not only to hire/contract employees, freelancers, contractors, management, etc., but it’s also your responsibility to train, mentor, but more importantly to have processes and procedures in place, because otherwise instead of moving forward you will be taking steps back!

 

💡TIP 1: Don’t line people up without having the right procedures in place.

💡Tip 2: Really understand your Biz growth and what you need and where you want to go.

💡Tip 3: Set your processes in place; recruiting, HR, administration, etc.

 

 

  • Lining people up before having processes in place will ONLY create chaos, confusion and in the long run problems.
  • Many of use don’t have an HR degree, or experience and therefore we may not be good in the whole recruiting and training process and that is why creating these processes and procedures will come in handy. (I created my own internal processes and procedures and therefore have been tested and proven to work effectively for all business sectors)
  • So, if you decide and envision your business growing, it is very, very important to have these procedures in place for each department, each staff member, etc.

These are just some basics to ponder, but it requires more than just this…

 

I hope you find these growth strategies helpful when you decided to hire help. These three simple tips make such a huge difference when it comes to getting the right person for the job, trust me, I’ve been there!

 

For more guidance and specific tips for your situation, that’s where my coaching can be even more useful – so contact me today, let’s chat and see how we can work together and get your processes and procedures in place, so that you can #BOSSUPANDRISE and be that #CEOHUSTLER you’ve always dreamed of!

By Faviola Valencia, the CEO Hustler

Are you Bilingual?

Want to be Your Own Boss?

Want to Start Your Own Business?

Do you Like Working and Helping Others?

Like Traveling?

If you answered YES, then this might be the Career for YOU!

“It takes more than JUST BEING BILINGUAL to become a Professional Interpreter… it takes; professional skills, training and much more!…”

But DON’T WORRY! 

 

I have everything you need to get you started on your Career!  I’ve been in this industry for over 19+ years. 

 

I started as a “Freelance Interpreter” in 2000 and within just a few months, I started my own Interpreting agency. 

While running my agency I was also Training New “Potential” Interpreters and teaching the Does and Don’ts of this wonderful Industry.

Now things to remember and to take into consideration and these “inside secrets” no one tells you or is willing to talk about!

In business and in life you will ALWAYS have ups/downs and being prepared is so important!

Little History:

We all start excited and feel complete and “stoked” when business is growing and running smoothly and cash is rollin in and business is just BOOMING, right?!

How about when S***hits the fan?!

Yeaup, that was me…Business was good, Life was good and things didn’t seem BAD, but then…

  1. I suffered an auto accident (was out for almost one year…
  2. Economy was about to crash (but I didn’t see it coming) bu
  3. Then I got pregnant (had a bad pregnancy & almost lost my Baby Girl)
  4. Son suffered a femur fracture (son in a body cast), just when I thought things couldn’t get worse…well they did!
  5. My father was diagnosed with Brain Cancer (Stage 4 Glioblastoma & after just a few months passed away).
  6. I was being “sued, accused of “crappy, s****” business practices (but I was victorious and was able to prove my innocence)…

But in the eyes of my “loyal interpreters, subcontractors” I was just a horrible business owner who was taking advantage of them, who “cheated them, but “unbeknown to them I was going through horrible business and life experiences (I don’t wish upon anyone) and was also a victim of “bad business, business shutdowns, the economy crashing & life/death situations”, but as the CEO it was my fault & I am responsible for everything even the horrible ups/downs & life struggles and challenges.

So after my father passed away I decided to close my business and go back to Freelancing, as well as continuing to  Train New Potential Interpreters  to help them prepare and avoid these same challenges and problems.

Fast forward… Let me tell you I enjoy being a Freelancer and Entrepreneur more than running an Agency and CEO :)…

 

Many ask Why…

 

Well as you can see based on my “Little History” that is why, but also I don’t have to deal with bureaucracy and headaches that come along with running a large business 🙂

 

Now don’t get me wrong running an Agency is a very lucrative business and industry to be in, but YOU MUST BE PREPARED to work around the clock to make your business work.

 

Versus a Freelancer / Entrepreneur you get to work when you want, earn as much as you want and have the freedom that you want – sounds great, right?

 

Here I am “still standing, with my head up high” and with God’s blessings…

  1. My father passes away, but he’s in a better place
  2. My daughter is alive and healthy (dealing with kidney issues, but never the less alive)
  3. I survived the “Economy Crash”
  4. My son recovered and is living his dream of being a Chef

 

So here I am still enjoying this wonderful industry providing services to various companies across the globe, but more importantly, I get to Train and work with New Potential Interpreters all while doing what I love!

On another note, you will see online that there are various Training programs focusing on Medical, Legal and Conference Interpretation / Certification; however, if you don’t have the Basic Skills and understanding as to how this industry works, or how to run your own freelance/entrepreneur business then let me tell you, you are ONLY setting yourself for failure! Join my Introduction to Interpreting Training

 

Why, well as you may be aware there are hundreds, if not thousands of young college students who go to college for years and years and after graduating they find themselves unable to obtain a job in their industry. 

 

Why? Well, because during their years in College they never got into internships, nor did they work in a similar industry to mirror their college career goal, therefore making them Non-Competitive!

 

Trust me when I say: Becoming a Certified Medical, Legal Interpreter is GREAT!

 

BUT…

 

If you don’t have the skills, qualifications, or understanding of this industry, YOU, MY FRIEND WILL NOT GET FAR!

 

Although I am NOT CERTIFIED, I do have OVER 18+ years of professional experience, as well as the skills, the qualifications to work in any industry I choose…

 

TRUST ME, my clients will pay my fees and will prefer to hire me vs a Certified Interpreter, why? Well, because of my skills, qualifications, and experience!

 

Note: I finally have the time and I’m currently working on my Certification – because it is a VALUABLE ASSET to have!
