Hiring a Virtual Assistant is a Milestone in Your Business

But, how do you know when it’s the right time? How do you know if you’ve reached that milestone?


Ask yourself these questions:


  • Am I financially able to pay for a photography virtual assistant?
  • Do I need processes, procedures, and checklists for routine operations?
  • Am I swamped with my creative work and don’t have enough downtime?
  • Are the admin tasks overwhelming my days?
  • Could I sign on more clients if only I had someone to take care of the business side of my business?
  • Am I turning prospects away because it’s too much to handle?

Emily has helped curate multiple designs and logos for clients of mine that I would've otherwise never been able to get correct. Her keen eye has hit the bullseye multiple times with clients visions and branding they desire. She's also been great at allowing me to voice my current struggles, tasks and other things and has helped me navigate through accomplishing them based on best business practices and accountability. She's also taken small things off my plate to help lighten my load, things that would've weighed me down and made me procrastinate and she just tackles them and checks them off, which is truly invaluable to me.
