In this episode, I share some voice feedback from Jay Carter. He shared some thoughts on how having a virtual assistant could be beneficial to those who have been diagnosed with ADHD. He also had a though that becoming a virtual assistant could be a great choice for those who have disabilities that have stood in the way of them obtaining a traditional job.

The main focus of this episode has been for me to share tech tools that can be useful in collaborating with your virtual assistant. It appears that this will be a bit of a series of episodes on this topic as I have a lot of tech tools to discuss and how I use them with my own virtual assistant.

The tools I shared in this episode:
* Google Calendar
* Google Docs & Spreadsheets
* Google Mail / Gmail
* Google Apps For Businesses


Also, in this episode, I share the failed attempt to use my virtual assistant to delegate a task that should have been pretty simple. However, I also share what happened and why I feel this attempt failed. I believe with this evaluation, I'd be able to approach a similar task in the future and would be able to effectively delegate this task to my virtual assistant.

For those of you who are still in the process of trying to figure out what to delegate, I suggest taking a notebook and logging every single task that you do over the course of a few days. Then, review that list and highlight anything you believe that someone else could be trained to do for you.
