How, Why, and When to Hire an Executive Assistant – Jess Lindgren

Do you frequently find yourself wishing there were more hours in the day to get everything done? Or perhaps wish you had a way to clone yourself so you’d be better able to stay on top of things. Or maybe you just need to better delegate some of the stuff on your plate to someone else, so you have more time for the things that only you can do. Well, according to Jess Lindgren, you’re already 3 months too late.

Whether it’s more on the personal side or business side, an assistant can make a world of difference for your business productivity. And what further makes hiring an assistant a reasonable option is the flexibility you have in deciding what role – and how much – that person will play for you.  If you think you can’t afford it right now, maybe you actually can’t afford not to, if you want to start seeing more growth in your business and time in your day.
