There are lots of stepping stones along the path to building a successful business, and one of those is making the decision to bring on help.  Hiring people to do the things you’re either not well suited for, or to free up time to do the things only you can do to build your business.

For many authors that happens when we decide to hire a cover designer or an editor. But what about some of the other tasks that fill our non-writing time?

Today’s guest is Chloe Adler. She’s still involved in the work world and she’s a romance author building her own thriving and sustainable author business.

One of her strategies is to outsource certain aspects of her business to virtual assistants so that she has time to pursue her writing, her passion for learning, and her somewhat unusual exercise hobby. She wrote extensively about this process on her website, here and here.

In this episode, we’ll get into the details of how she finds and trains her virtual assistants, what she expects of them, and what having them has allowed her to do.  She’ll share some of the benefits of finding the right people for your team, and the pitfalls of finding the wrong people.
