If you find yourself thinking you need to grow before you can start bringing on help, you might have it backwards. Often, investing in the right people can free you up to focus on growing far more efficiently than you could on your own. Today’s guests are a powerful team who have learned this truth through firsthand experience: Geoff Welch and Trúc Towns.
Geoff is a leadership consultant helping growth-focused leaders simplify their work so they can accomplish more than they thought possible. When he was ready to delegate some of his administrative work, he brought on Trúc, an experienced executive assistant he found through BELAY. Trúc and Geoff talk with Tricia about their experience of learning to work together and their top tips for getting started working with a virtual assistant. Geoff also explains how delegation has allowed him to play to his strengths in both his career and his personal life.
3 Key Takeaways
1. Every person with a remarkable impact started with a belief in what was possible.
If you have an idea and a passion for carrying it out, there’s no reason why you can’t make an impact on a national or even global scale. The people you look up to now were once starting out just like you.
2. No matter your situation, there is help out there for you.
Many of us think we need to grow more before we can ask for help, but we tend to have it backwards. No matter where you live or how small your business might be, there are steps you can take today to start investing in the support you need. And when you begin to delegate, it will give you the freedom to focus on growing your impact.
3. Delegation is a collaborative process.
A great virtual assistant balances proactivity with a willingness to take things one step at a time. If you’re not sure how to delegate, they can help you figure out next steps. It’s OK to start small, as long as you’re starting somewhere!
