One of the most common questions I’m (flatteringly) asked about my work is “How do you manage to get so much done?”.
The honest answer is… I definitely don’t do it alone! I have a fantastic team of skilled freelancers and Virtual Assistants (VA’s) who help me get stuff done to a very high standard. I’m a great believer in outsourcing, delegating and surrounding myself with people who are better than I am.
If you’re interested in How You Can Work With a Virtual Administrator to Grow Your Business then feel free to ask me any questions.
Here are the friends I affectionately refer to as “Team Tubb”. Take a moment to say hello to them!
