If you could make a single hire that would revolutionize your productivity, would you do it? Of course you would! But we’ve found that most leaders procrastinate when it comes to hiring an executive assistant.
That’s right, an EA is the most important hire you’ll ever make. Having a good assistant makes you incredibly productive by taking on your low-leverage tasks so you can channel your time and energy where it will be most effective. That creates an instant boost in productivity!
But lots of us put off hiring an EA out of fear. We’re afraid we can’t afford it, or we’ll lose control of important tasks, or there won’t be enough for them to do.
We’re here to tell you that simply isn’t true! In fact, we’re so convinced that hiring an EA will skyrocket your productivity that we’re devoting the entire episode to showing you how and why to do it.
Plus? We have a visit from Jim Kelly and Jamie Hess, our executive assistants. They give a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to work with us, plus tips on how to work with an EA.
Here’s happening in this episode—
- We give you our top three reasons why you should hire an EA right now. You won’t regret it!
- We each reveal the top tasks we depend on our assistants to accomplish—because we’re really not good at them!
- You’ll discover the ways having an EA boosts margin and improves family time.
- Jim and Jamie will tell you the number one task you need to hand off (and probably don’t know it).
- We outline the first steps to hiring an EA, which are much easier than you’d think.
