You’ve probably mastered knowing your customer avatar, but have you taken the time to really figure out who your ideal teammate is? Imagine, this is somebody you’re going to spend 2 to 10 hours a day, depending on the season of life you’re in with this person. You’ll perhaps engage with them more than you do your partner or your children sometimes. And yet, people make these decisions on who they’re going to hire based off of a 30-minute interview.

In today’s podcast, Trivinia Barber, founder of Priority VA, talks about the value of an executive assistant, and how we, as business owners and entrepreneurs, need a right-hand person in our life. It’s a great profit decision that will have a return on in terms of time, energy, and money. 

Trivinia Barber is the founder of Priority VA where they match executive assistants with entrepreneurs all around the globe. She started the company as a result of her own problem as a former executive assistant herself. Now, her company is focused on executive assistants and helping them get placed with high-level clients who understand the value of a team member and that they can only get as far as they can go with a team they can trust.
