🔐 Access to Your Systems

Use a password manager system like LastPass to securely share access to your systems with your VA. This method eliminates the need to share actual passwords and ensures a seamless transition should you and your VA part ways.

📈 Start Small

Trust-building in any relationship is a gradual process. Ensure that your contract with your VA includes a confidentiality clause, keeping shared information confidential.

💼 We typically recommend to our new clients that we begin with one or two tasks. Once you are confident that we are managing these without your direct input, you can consider delegating additional responsibilities. This approach allows your to-do list to shrink – a definite win!

📋 Set Clear Expectations

Your clients may not be aware that you’ve started outsourcing parts of your business, so it’s crucial to ensure tasks are completed on time, in accordance with the brief, and in a professional manner.

💬 Clearly communicate any essential details to your VA – remember, we’re not mind readers, and we often juggle work for multiple clients with different deadlines.

📣 Good Communication Is Key!

Outstanding communication is pivotal to the success of your outsourcing journey. Establish the right communication tools that suit both you and your VA and set transparent expectations for all tasks. Effective communication strengthens your relationship and ensures error-free, timely task completion.

🤝 Make sure you have the appropriate communication tools in place, whether it’s Slack, a project management system like or Trello, or simply email. Your Virtual Assistant may also have specific guidelines for sending work their way. For example, we ask our clients not to send work via WhatsApp or social media DMs to prevent any oversights.
