The time it takes to go through applications and interview numerous candidates before finding the right one.

What did you find as a result of hiring a VA?

More time to spend on the important things in life. Time is money so definitely saving money by hiring a VA!

What are three other benefits of hiring a VA?

1. Work continues even when you are occupied. I can set a task in the morning, go out for brunch and it's done when I get back from my meal with my family.

2. The ability to tackle more projects as now I don't have to do everything myself.

3. Never having to be on hold with customer service again. Whenever I need something done that requires calling a company about returns, flight changes or even booking a table at a restaurant, my VA does it and I don't have to listen to annoying elevator music while wasting my time waiting.

Would you recommend hiring a VA through Connected Women? If so, why?

Definitely. It cuts out the hassle of having to look through multiple applicants and do multiple interviews. The matching service provides someone who is well matched to my business and my personality so it makes hiring so easy. The trial period ensures a good fit before we sign the new VA on.
