Welcome to the first episode of the Virtual Assistant Podcast. My name is Cliff Ravenscraft and I'm a workaholic. I'm also a perfectionist and a total control freak. Put all of those traits together, on top of the fact that I launched my own business, just a few short years ago, and you'll quickly come to understand why I might be the perfect person to launch a podcast devoted to the industry of Virtual Assistants.

I am not an expert on this subject. I just hired my first virtual assistant in January of this year (2010). I believe that I still have many of the same questions as you might have about how to be effective and efficient in the use of hiring a Virtual Assistant. I am launching this podcast for me, as much as I am for you. I plan to share my own journey in using Virtual Assistant services.

My desire is that this podcast will help you become more productive and more profitable, in your business, through learning how to delegate more effectively.

This show is sponsored by Contemporary VA, the firm that I used to hire my own dedicated VA. In this first episode, I share a little of my own story and how I came to decide that I needed a virtual assistant to help me move forward in my own business. I also share an interview that I did with Andrea, my virtual assistant.

Listener Questions In This Episode:
How do you handle Passwords and Security when working with a VA?
How do you find a Virtual Assistant who doesn't need to be trained on everything?
How did I find Andrea, my VA?
