3 Books To Help You Find, Hire, and Work With a Virtual Assistant

Are you a blogger or small business owner who finds you have too much work and not enough time to get everything done?  Are you frustrated that your creativity is stifled because you must work on the more “dry” aspects of your business such as responding to emails, keeping the books, and monitoring and responding to comments?  If so, now may be the time to hire a virtual assistant.  But where do you look?  How do you check qualifications?  Luckily, if you have these questions and more, there are several books to help you find, hire, and work with a virtual assistant.

Here are some of the books we recommend:

Virtual Assistant Assistant by Nick Loper

Virtual Assistant Assistant: The Ultimate Guide to Finding, Hiring and Working with Virtual Assistants by Nick Loper explains how to determine what tasks you need help with and how to find a reliable virtual assistant.  For those who have never managed people before, this is an excellent guide.  Loper has used virtual assistants for nine years, so he’s quite experienced in this realm.  This is a good reader for anyone who is looking to expand her team and add a virtual assistant or two to her business.

Virtual Assistant 101 by Mark Flynn

In Virtual Assistant 101, Mark Flynn explains why having a virtual assistant is beneficial to your business and your personal life.  He also explains how and where to find a virtual assistant, how much to pay your virtual assistant, and what tasks your virtual assistant can handle.

This ebook is short, just 49 pages, and it does have some grammatical issues, but if you can look beyond that, you will likely find useful information here.

Virtual Freedom by Chris C. Ducker         

Virtual Freedom: How to Work with Virtual Staff to Buy More Time, Become More Productive, and Build Your Dream Business by Chris C. Ducker is a resource for both those who have never hired a virtual assistant and those who have but would like to expand the amount of help that they receive from virtual assistants.

Ducker suggests outsourcing as much as you can to multiple virtual assistants so that you can have more time for content creation or more time that is your own.  You’ll also learn how to manage a virtual staff. 

Ducker includes case studies for deeper understanding, and there is a valuable eight-page resource guide in the back of the book.

Virtual assistants are a vital part of the small business and blogging landscape.  If you haven’t yet hired your first virtual assistant, these books can help you learn how VAs can help you grow your business and how you can work with them successfully. 

If you’re a VA, these books may also be useful to give you a better idea what clients are looking for and where they go to find VAs to hire.
