I've scaled a lot lately and I'm working at least 12 hour days 6 days a week in order to stay on top of all my contracts.
I have a lot more leads that I just can't take on right now so most of them are being pit stopped ie. I can't take on any more clients right now but I'll add you to the waitlist if you're interested.
I have 2 choices right now:
- Hire a VA (Virtual Assistant) to take some of the workload off of me for my existing clients and new clients.
- Stop taking in new clients and risk losing good leads without gaining the equivalent back.
I've worked with some VA's before but I've never done extensive work where they'd impact my overall clients and were usually the VA of a client that was able to do work in 1 area and give me more time to focus elsewhere. I digress.
What should I consider with both options?
If I choose to hire a VA, how do I hire the right VA? I've heard many horror stories.
If I don't take on any more clients how can I maintain current leads for 3-12 months and should I continue to try and gain more leads to cover ones that fall off the radar?
