I have been listening to podcasts for a very long time. I started with Kelly McCausey, a podcast I believe was called work at home moms (WAHM). Then I listened to the podcast with Denise Griffitts, Your Partner in Success and followed Nicole Dean. At one point I even flirted with the idea of producing my own podcast but quickly dismissed the idea as too hard and then began the slow downward getting busy with subcontracting projects. My time was turning into profits.
Fast forward a few years and once again I began flirting with the idea of creating my own podcast and began researching why virtual assistants and service providers weren't using a team to turn their own business into profits. In my research I found that there really isn't another podcast that addresses and educates about this topic. So, I contacted one of the original role models, Denise Griffitts and asked for some coaching. She agreed. That's how Virtual Team 360 podcast was born.
Now that you know a little of the back story, In the first interview, I wanted to share with you why I think going forward with the podcast on the subcontracting concept will be an important tool for team members, virtual service providers and multi-VAs.

Denise Griffitts interviews 'The Busy Entrepreneur's Secret Weapon' Tracey Osborne.
In this program, we are talking about the virtual assistance industry, a subject near and dear to my heart as I am considered a virtual assistance industry expert. Today I am interviewing a friend and colleague who is also a leader and expert in online business management and project management with over 8 years experience in the industry. She is also CEO of Business Solutions Made Simple, a multi-VA firm made up of the best and brightest virtual assistants (VA) who specialize in assisting high achieving entrepreneurs.
The Virtual Assistance industry is experiencing explosive growth, but the downside to that is that there are too many people struggling to find quality, clients. And as Tracey and I have discussed numerous times both privately and publicly, the problem often lies in the depth (or lack thereof) of business knowledge and actual training/education the new VA has acquired.
We will talk about:
What do you need to start a VA business?
How do you price your services?
Where do you get clients?
What about subcontracting for other VA's?
How can you "level up" your VA business?
How do you manage your time, clients and projects?
How can you compete with the "big dogs" in the VA industry?
