If you’re thinking of adding an assistant in 2023, take a moment to ask yourself what the role is right now, what it could grow into, and who will cover for vacations, illness, and unexpected absences.

Sadie Prestridge walks you through the pros and cons of a VA agency v a stand-alone VA, how to know when to hire and what to expect for each.

Key Takeaway

Please stop calling your VA a lifer. Even if they love being behind the scenes, you still need to consider how they might like to grow in the role if you hope to keep them.

We talk about

  • Whether you really need a(nother) VA
  • How to choose between a VA agency and a solo VA
  • VA red flags (and how to spot the green ones)
  • How long can you expect to hang on to your VA (hint: it’s not for life)
  • Why scale through an agency model
