Problem: I am incredibly overwhelmed, so I don’t have time to find a virtual assistant.

Problem: I want more time in my day, but I don’t really understand what kinds of things I could give to a VA that would save me time.

Problem: I have no idea how to find a Virtual Assistant. Can you just give me the name of yours so I can use him?

Problem: I have used a Virtual Assistant before and it was a disaster. I didn’t get what I wanted and it took me so much time to clean up the mess my VA left behind.

Problem: All the projects I have for a VA will require me sharing passwords or credit card information and I’m not comfortable with that.

Problem: I had trouble understanding my VA and communicating with him/her. I often thought my directions were not understood.

Problem: I am in a specialized field. It will be very difficult for anyone to help me.

Problem: I am not a gambler. I need to be sure work will get done in a timely fashion.

Problem: I know it’s supposed to be cheap, but I am really strapped for cash right now. I’m not sure if it’s where I should be spending my money.

Problem: How can I trust a person I've never met in person, and never will, to keep my leads and my business confidential?
Problem: How am I going to be able to manage someone thousands of miles away and in a different time zone?

The goal of this book is to address these problems so entrepreneurs can get the most value possible out of low-cost, virtual workers so that they take work off an entrepreneur's plate instead of piling it on.
