Do you run your own independent consulting or coaching business? If so, regardless of the discipline, industry, personal or commercial niche you serve, you'll probably know that sense of wearing far too many hats. It’s an occupational hazard—one that can both distract you from growing your coaching or consulting enterprise as you would like, and lead you down that undesirable path to professional burnout. So do you continue to "soldier" on alone or instead "shoulder" the legal and financial burden of hiring someone to help you with non-core aspects of your business, such as administration and marketing? Either prospect can be daunting, right? That’s probably why an increasing number of professional coaches and consultants are choosing the third alternative, to hire a virtual assistant who can work full-time for them on a remote basis from a low-cost country such as the Philippines.
