132: When Do You Need a Virtual Assistant?

Dr. Jeremy Sharp Podcast Leave a Comment

We’ve talked a few times about virtual assistants here on the podcast, but really, I can’t say enough about them. Remember last week when I mentioned how people often ask how I get so much done? Well, the truth is that I’m not personally doing as much as it looks like I’m doing. A big part of my task management and productivity is having assistants. In fact, one of the first things that I’ll talk about with coaching clients is getting a VA or in-house assistant set up to help with mundane, non-clinical tasks. I currently have two VA’s for the Testing Psychologist and another editor for the podcast. 

So when do you need to consider a VA or in-house assistant? Here are just a few clues:

  • You just started a practice
  • You’d rather not pay your own hourly rate for practice management services
  • You feel overwhelmed with your responsibilities
  • You feel bored with certain parts of your day
