Last Thursday my colleague Jennifer and I met with Jane Pollak about her role in our upcoming telesummit series. We’re very excited about her participation. She’s produced webinars, but this is even more complex- there are even more moving parts, as there will be 6 joint venture participants, not just 1, on 6 different dates. Affiliate tracking. Auto responders. Shopping carts. Oh my!! We casually asked Jane about a few of the venders she’d used for her webinar series. Her answer? “Not sure! My VA did all of that.” Hmmmm…..
I know Jenn and I were both thinking the same thing as we heard those words come from Jane, more than once. Can you say “lightbulb”?
Smart, not hard, Smart not hard. Repeat 3x, spit, rinse and repeat.I am so used to doing things myself, to not delegating- that I’m always having to be beaten into the reality that I can’t do it all, nor should I try.
Wait just one more minute. I did have an intern, but she graduated this past May and has gone the way of most college graduates. Somewhere else.So it’s time to get back on the delegation wagon. I ran home on Thursday and immediately placed an ad on Craigs List for a very techy VA. You can’t imagine how many out of work very techy VA’s there are out there. As of Sunday my choices were up to 36. So not only am I going to be smart, damn it, I’m also helping out the masses of over qualified internet savvy programmers and the like by employing one of them who has no idea what they’re getting themselves into.
Time to get my priorities straight. Going to upload this baby and take my mom out for lunch as soon as we’re sure that my step dad’s settled in.
