Almost am embarrassed to admit it, but, then as a salaried employee and doing side-gigs as a digital marketing consultant, I decided that my life could be more effective by gaining outside help from virtual assistants.
Life changed— not necessarily good nor bad— but, within moments after the click of a mouse, I had officially put myself in the position to outsource some of my life.
I distinctly remember my boss (at my former employer) smiling and telling to “let me know how it goes” when I told him about the experiment. I wanted it so badly to return to him with a success story for how efficient my workflow had become and how confident I was that this was the secret sauce for becoming more productive. After my 4-month experience with the virtual assistance provider, it actually proved the exact opposite from that assumption. I was naive.
