“The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.” 

– Theodore Roosevelt

Chris Ducker’s Story
Read about the story that resonated with me and helped me realize I needed to finally hire an assistant

A great resource if you need some one-off projects done.  There are people with all kinds of skills in just about every industry you can imagine. A great review system and fantastic rates which make getting help something all of us can afford.

Everything is $5 on this site. There are add-ons you can buy, but for the most part, everything is $5.  Plus you’ll find someone who will do just about anything for $5.  It’s a great way to try out a number of people and then work out a deal for even further help with those who meet your requirements

If you need any type of design work down, this a wonderful tool.  I know a lot of people who’ve used it for logo designs.  You submit your needs, some sample ideas you might like and then a massive group of people send you their ideas.  If you find one you like, you buy it from them. It’s a great way of getting a lot of options in front of you.

Virtual Staff Finder
This is the service Chris Ducker offers. For $395, his team will find out exactly what you’re looking for in a virtual assistant and then go finding the perfect person for you needs.  In fact, they’ll present to you 3 different candidates. You just have to interview each, usually via Skype and decide on who you want to hire.  If you decide within the first 10 days that the person doesn’t measure up, they’ll gather three more candidates for you. This is a great resource for finding your perfect virtual assistant.  Again, this is NOT an affiliate link, just a service I believe will be beneficial to you.
