The Virtual Assistant Training Academy Announces the First Ever Multi-VA Team Training Program

When a virtual assistant’s workload becomes overwhelming, they run the risk of dropping the ball or turning away business. In short, they can no longer run the show themselves. At that point it’s wise to invest in building a team of sub-contractors who will help carry the load. By taking the Master the Multi-VA Team: Learn to Build a Profitable Multi-VA Business training program, VAs will be in the best possible position to grow a high-earning, high-functioning business, do more of what they love, and get more free time.

Online PR News – 24-February-2011 – – Wasaga Beach, ON) - February 23, 2011 - Virtual assistants get into business to help others. The goal is to work with as many clients as possible, providing a range of services that are done efficiently and on time. Trouble is, the faster a VA’s business grows, the less able they are to get everything done. Suddenly productivity goes out the window, along with unsatisfied clients.

“This is a scary place to be,” says Pam Ivey, 10-year veteran VA and owner of the Virtual Assistant Training Academy. “I remember reaching that point. I was working way too many hours and was overwhelmed by the amount of details I had to keep organized for my growing clientele. I knew I was at the breaking point.”

As funny as it sounds, for a VA, this is a good problem to have. There’s excitement around the business doing so well mixed with exhaustion from trying to keep up. The fact is, no one can be everything to everyone, and no one can do it alone. The good news is, putting a team of sub-contractors in place is the perfect answer for alleviating the business owner’s strain while continuing to efficiently serve clients.

But building a team of sub-contractors is no easy feat. If a VA doesn’t have the right systems in place for their workers or understand the keys to hiring, firing, organizing and monitoring a team, they’ll quickly compromise their business’ bottom line and its reputation. Luckily a new Multi-VA team building program is now available through the Virtual Assistant Training Academy that addresses every aspect of working with teams.

Led by success coach and long-time Internet marketing powerhouse, Melanie Benson Strick, renown for her team building expertise, this course is by far the ultimate solution to any business owner’s one-man-band, how-do-I-grow dilemma. “I’m so excited to be partnering with Melanie in this endeavor. Her experience in building teams is truly amazing,“ says Ivey. “I know she’s helped countless entrepreneurs achieve 5- and 6-figure success by using her proven methods, systems, and tools. I myself have benefited from her training as well and have run a successful 6-figure Multi-VA business for the past four years.”

“It’s all about learning how to delegate effectively,” says Melanie Benson Strick, Big Idea Catalyst and owner of Success Connections. “I’ve been building and managing teams since my days in corporate America. In the online virtual business world, it’s even more important to understand how to work with virtual teams. They can either help build or break your business depending on what you do and what you know.”

Numerous VAs are serious about wanting to grow their businesses by expanding to a team model as evidenced in a recent survey. Over 75% of respondents are thinking about it but they’re not sure when to do it, if they have the money to make it happen or how to ensure they hire the right people. Now with the in-depth training they will get with the Master the Multi-VA Team: Learn to Build a Profitable Multi-VA Business will set them on the right path today for major success tomorrow.
