How to Use Virtual Staff to Create Your Muse

Hey guys!  This is a guest video post from Chris Ducker over at Virtual Business Lifestyle.  Chris is what I would consider a virtual assistance guru.

He’s the CEO of Live2Sell Group, a total business outsourcing provider based in Cebu City, Philippines, with over 200 full-time staff who work for him currently.  The Live2Sell Group includes his virtual assistant company, Live2Care.  If there’s anyone who knows about outsourcing and virtual assistance, it’s Chris.

Chris was kind enough to record this awesome guest video post for My 4-Hour Workweek about how you can use virtual staff to help you create your muse.  A lot of times when people think about virtual assistance, they think about it in the context of an already-successful business, but this doesn’t need to be the only case.  As you’ll see in this video, Chris outlines a number of ways that you can use virtual staff to get your business off the ground, leaving you more time to develop and grow your business.

Check it out, and enjoy!  If you have any questions or thoughts, please leave a comment.  I’m sure Chris would be happy to answer them.

  1. I use AskSunday for my outsourcing, but this looks great too. I will have to check it out. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love the idea of outsourcing because I think my strength comes from creating and developing ideas. I realize some of my weakness comes from getting the technology moving forward.

    For example: I’ve been wanting to start a small food business online. I thought of the product, research, what I’d need to do to get it running but I’m crippled by putting together the site and shopping cart.

    Although I can do this myself, I’m too busy wrapped up in other projects.

    Outsourcing would be great because I can continue to work while others get everything up and running – effectively working on two major projects at the same time!

    I’ll have to look into it. Been saving money to get some projects going, now’s the time to do it!

    You nailed it, Murlu. Outsourcing gives you the perfect opportunity to focus on what you do best, and hopefully the things you find most enjoyable!

    Excellent ideas and focus here… Even before your project is off the ground, I can tell that you have a very good chance at succeeding. Why? Because of the focus behind it.

    Outsourcing will indeed give you the freedom to do more with your time as the ‘creative force’ behind your business.

    Pop on over to the blog, I’m sure some of my other stuff will help you out.

    Best,
    Chris

  3. I have just started using VAs and I have found that adding good people to your team to be very useful. The common quote that you see around the web these days is “Do what you do best and outsource the rest”. This couldn’t be more true.

    VAs don’t have to be full-time. I have a couple VAs that I work with on a project to project basis which means I don’t need to worry about having enough work to keep one person busy.

    Awesome tips, Matt. That must be pretty nice to have various VAs working on a project to project basis, and it allows you to assign work to those who are the most capable for whatever the task may be. Thanks for the comment!

    Hey Matt

    Yes, dont spend good money to have a VA sit around half the time. Its pointless (not that you needed me to tell you that!).

    VAs are great sources of skill that many, many entrepreneurs dont have – saying that, they STILL need guidance.

    So, as youve just started out, look at helping them ‘get it’ in terms of the way you like things done, and then focus on helping them ‘grow’ as employees (especially those that you DO end up hiring full-time).

    Hope to see you over at the blog for more cool VA content.

    Good luck!

  4. Great video guys. I agree with what Chris says about customising a WordPress theme. I’m a professional web designer and even I found it to be rather daunting the first time I tried it. So I have a lot of sympathy for those that have no background coding html/css/php.

  5. Eric,
    Another great post! I just reviewed your blog in my most recent post and congrats again on coming in 3rd place in my blog commenting contest. I’m the biggest fan of passive income around – keep up the great work!
    Best,
    Ian
