One question that comes up lately is about how I use my team of virtual assistants and freelancers. Here is a little peak behind the scenes.
This year, I’ve already traveled to 12 countries for consulting gigs at a variety of companies. Most of what I’ve been doing is one-off trainings on five topics.
In Europe earlier this year, the company I was consulting for asked about access to my online courses. An entrepreneur in my mastermind group told me not to sell them the courses, but to make the company buy licenses for each employee. Dr. Tee Williams is a genius for that idea and I still owe him!
It made a HUGE difference. Instead of charging a company $10K for each course, they are now buying licenses at a rate of $2K per employee per course (I have six courses).
Here in Asia (I’m here on a five-country consulting tour), the next big change happened. I did a training on digital marketing at a company in Hong Kong, and a training on podcasting at a company in Bangkok. Both companies came to me after and said they wanted to hire me to set up what I had trained them on. Right now, I’m setting up a digital marketing plan for the company in Hong Kong. I’m setting up a podcast for the company in Bangkok.
I have never offered done-for-you services or taken on bigger projects like this in the past, so it meant hiring a team for all the work. I currently use four virtual assistants and two freelancers. Read more ›
