I would love to delegate more to my Virtual Assistant, but it is just faster to do it myself then to try to explain to her how to do the tasks I do. Can you give me an idea for how to get past this?
The biggest reason most people don’t delegate a task to their Virtual Assistant is for this very reason, so you are definitely not alone. I always suggest to my clients that they do this task just one more time… however this last time they need to put their smartphone beside their computer and hit record. As you do the task speak out loud the steps you are taking. “I am going to such and such a website, I am going to the drop down menu called ‘x’ and entering my username of ‘x’ and password of ‘y’ ….” Then save this recording to a dropbox and label it with the task you just performed.
When your Virtual Assistant does this task they just need to press play and there you are walking them through the steps!
Even better, you can have your Virtual Assistant transcribe these recordings and add screenshots and they will then become your Operations Manual!
