Hiring a Virtual Assistant for your Handmade Business with Carmen Williams

Hiring a Virtual Assistant for your Handmade Business with Carmen Williams Podcast from Product Powerhouse

As handmade business owners, it can be scary to consider hiring help in our business. The hesitation comes from feeling like we shouldn’t need help in our business. Or that by hiring someone, we are giving control of our company over to someone else. This week episode 117 of the Product Powerhouse Podcast is about hiring a virtual assistant for your product business! 

In this episode of the Product Powerhouse Podcast, Carmen Williams is sharing the importance of hiring support in your business and the actionable steps you can take right now to determine what you can take off your plate. That way, you have more time to be creative or plan long-term strategies for your business.

Some of the talking points Carmen and I go over in this episode include:

  • What business owners can do to get started in using a VA in their business.
  • Fears around hiring a VA when you are the one pouring your heart and soul into creating a product.
  • Figuring out what a virtual assistant can help you within your product business.
  • Behind the scenes of what a virtual assistant matchmaking service like Global Teams can look like and how there’s continued support for both parties.
  • Understanding that even though you might work with someone from a different culture, they are still a person beneath it all.

Don’t forget–it doesn’t have to be all or nothing when you are hiring support for your business. You can start small.

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on growing your product shop and to hear even more about the points outlined above. Thank you for listening!
