Before I hire someone, I like to talk with them on the phone and run through my list of interview questions so I can feel them out. Plus, by talking to a prospective virtual assistant (or other type of contractor), you’re going to be able to tell if there’s a ‘connection’ or not.
Scroll down to get my own personal list of interview questions, and you’ll also find a downloadable PDF of these questions that you can print off, and have on hand to use during your own interviews.

You want to go from idea to profit fast? You gotta do this:
My peeps are always asking me who I hire and outsource to, or who I recommend.

Obviously, I’m the perfect the person to ask, eh? 😉
Well…now I’m making it easy for you to find a great contractor – and even get the deets about my own personal service contractors.
I’ve put together a HUGE list of service contractors (75 so far), including 14 of my own peeps – and 61 others that I’ve starred for my own personal reference. So if I need a copywriter, a designer, a tech person, whoever – THIS is the list I refer to.
