Top 5 Myths about Virtual Executive Assistants
Contributed by our Team Member, Tara
The word Virtual Assistant may be somewhat of a new term for you. Not too long ago, most of us were going to our office jobs, meeting with people face to face, and even shaking hands. Fast forward to today and it's rare to hear of anyone going into the office to work. “Remote” has quickly become the way of the workplace.
It's now the Virtual Assistants’ time to shine! Many businesses have closed their physical offices and are looking for a way to have the strategic support they need but from afar. When you think about a Virtual Executive Assistant lots of things may come to mind, and many of them may just not be true. While there are a plethora of myths about us out there, I thought I would focus on 5 of my favorites.
As an entrepreneur, you’re at a higher risk of burnout than almost any other group, especially as a solopreneur. Studies have shown that burnout in entrepreneurs is more likely to show up in the body than in the job.
Jade Barclay, a psychotherapist who recently completed her MBA Thesis on Entrepreneur Burnout said in an interview “There were a whole raft of cognitive symptoms that would show up, so just not being able to focus and things like that, brain fog, that kind of thing. A lot of people actually had body symptoms. It was common to have people say, "My body just completely shut down. I couldn't work anymore."
So how do you prevent this all too common occurrence? We’ve found 4 helpful tips to help you avoid entrepreneur burnout.
HELLO | TWELVE, JUNE 2022
Happy Friday! What a whirlwind month it's been! Just wanted to say thank you to all of my great friends and followers who have supported me and helped me make Let It Go! such a success.
The early reviews are in, and the dreams that I had for it are manifesting before my eyes thanks to your support. I'm reading feedback like, "Emily has written a masters class thesis on the traps of delegation and how to break through to freedom," and "I expect this book to become a classic work that will help business owners delegate for decades to come." Just WOW!

HELLO | TWELVE, MAY 2022
Happy Friday and welcome to a super exciting month! This month marks my birthday, the sale of my home, AND my first book launch! With so much going on and the busyness of all of the WHAT, it can be really easy to disconnect with our WHY.
They say writing a book is alot like birthing a child, and I would have to agree. Getting it finished has been one of the most disciplined activities I've ever had to do, simply because it requires sustained creative engagement, followed by sustained follow-through. Remaining connected to MY WHY of helping others create more freedom to do what they love and have a big impact has kept me focused and on track.
HELLO | TWELVE, APRIL 2022
Happy Friday and welcome to the first day of Q2 (and April Fools Day too!). What an exciting time it is to be a leader! The world is in such desperate need for us to rise to the occasion and lead with compassion, grace and strength. In his book, Day One, Drew Dudley teaches us that "Most of the leadership on the planet comes from people who don't see themselves as leaders." There is opportunity for all of us to step up and show leadership regardless of the roles and seats we occupy. He says leadership is about cultivating the behaviors that will help you to succeed and empower those around you.

HELLO | TWELVE, MARCH 2022
Happy Friday and welcome to the start of Spring (barely, here in Jersey!). It's been an exciting quarter for us here at Delegate, with even more awesomeness on the horizon. One of the things I'm personally most excited about is the upcoming launch of my first book, pictured here! -->
Writing this book from concept to print will have taken me about a year. I worked with a great company, Scribe to help me tackle this project. Their program has been very helpful and allowed me to focus just on my content. I expect to have it in hand, just in time for my birthday in late May! We will share more around how to get a copy over the next few months.
Recently I met Paul, a self-proclaimed geek, even has those thick black-rimmed glasses. We got talking, and he offered to take a quick look at one of our funnels that wasn’t converting as well as we wanted. Wow, it blew me away; within a few minutes, he showed me 5 different ways we’re losing money in our funnel. You see, the problem was, I was too close to it.
