About 3 years we joined Slack. It was super exciting. First we used it internally. Then we rolled it out to our entire community of global client staff. By mid 2016 we had over 100 users on Slack.
Over the last few years everyone has been talking about the magical Virtual Assistant (VA). The unicorn of the recruitment world!
When we first started Grow My Team nearly four years ago almost every new lead that came to us was looking for a Virtual Assistant (VA). Maybe it was the popularity of Tim Ferriss’s 4 hour work week, the growth of Upwork, Fiverr and a heap of other online freelance marketplaces. Maybe it was just wishful thinking?
As business leaders we’re always trying to increase efficiency and productivity within our teams (without sacrificing quality of course), and constantly trying to evaluate where we can make gains in this area. Lean, efficient teams usually translate to a healthier bottom lines, however it’s not always easy to determine where the blocks are and what can be done to improve them.
