Guide to Outsourcing/Hiring a VA

by 3 comments
Hey All,

I'm looking to expand my business a little bit, and am thinking about hiring a Virtual Assistant, but am a little bit boggled about how to do that. Eventually I want to take my whole business to something I manage virtually. It seems like there a lot of people who have this running atleast partially.

I know that it's a very broad question, and if anyone has a full fledged guide I'd be more than happy to buy it, but here are some definite questions.

1. Where is one of the better places to go to hire a VA?
2. What is the primary way to train VAs? Instructional videos you produce or IM courses?
3. How do you find a VA to manage other VAs?
4. What is a VA's tax status in the US?

Thanks so much in advance!

    Buy the Four Hour Work Week. I swear to God it's my new Bible. If covers all of that and more. It's only been out for a year and I'm sure any book store in your area will have it or of course get it off of Amazon.

    I know it's not commonly advocated here, but I found the best person for a variety of tasks, right in my own neighborhood.

    You can go to any local college and put a few notices and will get calls from local folks, looking for a side income. Training them in person is way easier than training somebody in Thailand, for instance...I just found it was a better way.
