My Name is Aga, my website is about creating perfect girls’ apparel collections. I am also an infopreneur and I make money by creating infoproducts and sometimes selling physical products that I buy in China. When I ﬁrst started out I thought I should and could do everything, and I did everything by myself. I learned how to work with WordPress, and I learned how to code.
I’m really not an expert at coding but I learned how to do that all on my own. Looking back I wasted a ton of time and time is money especially in this business. Looking back I really wish I knew about virtual assistants which is kind of why we’re bring this podcast out and explaining exactly what they are for those who don’t know what they are. It took me two and a half months to finish an eBook that was already 95% written.
When I came out with my eBook. I was just using the same content that was on the site which like I said 95% of it was done. Most of it was just researching the topic of little girls dressing, writing and then formatting, formatting the eBook in Adobe Professional and adding graphics to it. If I would have had someone on board to do it just that it would have been done in a week. In fact I wasted an extra two months of income, and at that time I was earning $20,000 or $30,000 a month.
Even if I would have been spending $1000 to get the eBook done, i would have been okay, as I was making that in a day. I should have gotten it up sooner, but just like anything else, this is a learning experience. I can only look back and kick myself for not doing it much sooner but now I feel like I’m in the right place where I have a virtual assistant, a programmer, to whom I can say hey. on my website, I want to move this over here, can you just do this for me? When I wake up the job is done overnight, it’s all done for me, and that is a beautiful thing. Now we have seen what VA’s (virtual assistants) are, and what they can do for you.
We kind of talked about it a little brieﬂy, about what they can do for us. You know exactly who is my audience and what they do. With what kind of things can a virtual assistant help my particular audience, you think.
I use Asana for project management and I love Dropbox, I could not work without these tools.
