Virtual Assistant FAQ

Still have questions about a Virtual Assistant? Check out some of our frequently asked questions below.

How do I know a VA is right for me? 

The fact that you are reading this is probably a good indication. By navigating to this page, you must have recognized something you’re currently doing is not working. And it could be because you are doing everything. Busy people do many things, but successful people focus on the things they need to do, not just do things that need to get done. Transitioning these tasks to someone who can do them, but isn’t you will free you up to work on higher priority items. 

Do I have to be an owner or executive to have a VA? 

Absolutely not. But we have found that non-executive individuals have a harder time letting go of the things they should be doing because they don’t want to pay someone to help them. If you can get over this hurdle, you will be amazed at how productive you can be when you focus on the things you “should” be doing. 

Do I have to pay them for 40 hours a week? 

Only if you want to. Here’s the beauty of a VA, you pay them for the time you need them. It depends on what services you need. We also understand that your needs change. You can always change your hours desired on a month to month basis as long as you stay at our 45 hour a month minimum. Flexibility is one of the many perks that makes using a VA such a valuable tool. 

How do I train someone to do what I do? 

Your first step is to complete the Delegate and Elevate Tool linked here. Once we know what your VA should be doing, we can then start the onboarding process. Our team understands the demands of a water treatment professional, so they are ready to help you with onboarding. We will send you an onboarding kit to help you with this process. This kit makes onboarding easy by including the following: 

    • Introductions
    • Expectations
    • Training
    • Communications
    • Metrics

How much does a VA cost? 

VAs range from $25/hour- $45/hour depending on their level of skill. I believe that the level of service and expertise of Lauren Vonfeldt Virtual Assistants is worth the price. The members of their team have worked professionally in the areas you need. Their VAs know EOS and are familiar with the water treatment industry as well. That level of knowledge is worth the expense.

I don’t know if I can afford to pay someone an hourly rate of $25 or higher? 

I know how you feel, I felt that way when I first looked into hiring a VA. Here’s what I learned, at just 10 hours a week ($1400/month,) I was able to devote more time to the things that produced income. Think about all the things that get in the way of you selling that next account. Delegating those tasks to someone who will get them accomplished to your standards (if not higher) will allow you to make money you spend back tenfold. Trust me, I know this can be a hard pill to swallow, but I can tell you firsthand it continues to work for me.
