Episode Highlights:

13:03 – If you’re listening and you think that, “Oh, I don’t have the money to hire this super expensive, super qualified rockstar, start small.” Hire a VA to manage your email inbox. Hire a VA to do something that is ultra small, that is super basic, but that’s taking a lot of your time. With most business owners, most of what you do is administrative in some way. And if you can offload that to a virtual assistant, that’s somewhere across the globe in a country where you’re both getting a significant benefit by maybe paying them $6 an hour, which is wonderful to them and wonderful to you as a business owner, and everyone wins, why wouldn’t you want to do that?

25:00 – I think there’s a lot of typical B2B marketing platforms and methods that may not work as effective because, at the end of the day, especially when you’re dealing with professionals, professionals want to speak with other professionals. So, when it comes to the vast majority of our B2B model, it’s based on networking and being able to build relationships with other lawyers because you do business with those you know, like, and trust.

30:29 – Hiring is tough. It’s one of those skills that’s not easily acquired. And when you start bringing people into your company, that’s a really big step because now you’re responsible for somebody else and possibly their family. And you have to understand that you have a commitment to them, but they also have a commitment to you. And being able to be on the same page, as far as where you’re going, you have to be clear with your team.
