Good Morning.

We hear every day more and more people sharing that it is difficult for them to get things done and get results, especially these days, with COVID-19, social distance and working when kids are jumping all over.

Henry Ford said:

“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”

Having this in mind, keep your motivation & energy high and you will take off too!

A few things happening:

1) Google My Business and reviews gain in 2020 local ranking factors survey.

2) Bing officially rebrands as ‘Microsoft Bing’.

3) Affiliate Virtual Summit is happening on October 13 & 14 with top speakers (Oliver Kenyon, James Van Elswyck, Jason Akatiff, Andrew Payne, Luke Kling, Hen Kinan and many more), free tickets available here.

Have an awesome day!

When you’re starting out with your business, you’re doing it all: fulfilling orders, responding to customers, partners, managing your social media, and so much more.

But while we pursue entrepreneurship for many reasons, having less time in our lives isn’t one of them.

That’s why the first “employee” many entrepreneurs hire is a virtual assistant: someone who can take on the daily tasks and processes that are important for running your business, but not necessarily focused on growing it.

A virtual assistant is like having an extra pair of hands without hiring an actual employee. If you’re experiencing stress and the other “good problems” that come with success, it might be time for you to consider hiring your own virtual assistant and get back some of those hours in your day.
