Becoming a Virtual CEO with Chris Ducker

Becoming a Virtual CEO with Chris Ducker

Back in 2002, I was trudging to my job as a high school Biology teacher, hating every minute of it. A few short months later, I was a Virtual CEO earning more in a month than it took me an entire year to earn as a Biology Teacher. In this podcast episode, you’re going to get the inside scoop on how you too can become a Virtual CEO from best-selling author Chris Ducker. Chris is the founder of YouPreneur, the author of Virtual Freedom, and creator of Virtual Staff Finder in addition to an in-demand podcast guest, podcast host, and

How to Become a Virtual CEO

There’s two ways you can run your business: work IN your business or work ON your business. Far too often, entrepreneurs get caught in the trap of working IN their business. They take on a lot of the hats – finance, sales, creation, marketing, etc. and continue to wear them far beyond the point that they need too with no plan for transition or escape. The end result is 12 – 14 hour days and limited growth. Most entrepreneurs are not a jack of all trades…so even though they are getting stuff completed, it may not be of the potential or quality it could be by bringing someone amazing on board.

Why Do People Struggle With Hiring and Outsourcing?

There’s a few reasons. The first is a lack of organization. A good number of new business owners are “winging it”. They have a routine they developed to get tasks needed done but haven’t established any type of organization to their business. Creating an organization board or chart that lists the divisions and tasks is a great first step on getting clarity in what is needed to expand the business..

Second is cost. Most entrepreneurs think it’s going to cost an arm and a leg to hire good people to offload tasks to. They are concerned about investing in new people and not getting good return on it. Chris’s company, Virtual Staff Finder, solves this problem by giving entrepreneurs access to talented workers who virtual staff finderoperating on international pay-rates…a fraction of North American or European Wages. Virtual Staff Finder also provides resources and training to help entrepreneurs lean how to outsource and manage an international team, as well as find talented workers. Virtual Staff Finder makes it easy for you to start off-loading some of the tasks others can easily do, like social media management, email management, web development, etc.

[bctt tweet=”Attract the right tribe with your vibe – Chris Ducker” username=”shannonlavenia”]

Third, is a fear of “bad hires”. There’s a tremendous amount of confusion when it comes to how to hire, what to look for, what to ask, and what do to to ensure your new hire is ready to do a great job. The fear of wasting time, energy, and money with the wrong person can have a business owner avoid hiring all together. Fact is, without hiring good people, a business is limited and won’t expand.

By survey, business owners hate hiring.  My process helps you hire the right person, the first time and every time… no headaches.  The people you choose will change the trajectory of your company (and life) for unprecedented growth!” – David Lee Jensen, Founder/CEO, The Hiring Academy

Lastly, is overwhelm. Often, entrepreneurs are so overwhelmed with what they currently have to do that the idea of slowing down to interview, hire, and hat a new staff member add to the stress. The way to handle this is to make it a part of your daily or weekly routine. In reality, if you’re so overwhelmed you can’t hire then you really need to hire. Your resistance, fear or avoidance to hiring has led to the overwhelm and the solution is to start expansion of your organization to handle and increase your growth. If you make hiring a part of your standard operating basis, you’ll soon find yourself relieved of many of the time consuming tasks so you can focus on your zone of genius.

On your path to becoming a Virtual CEO…

Here’s a list of steps you can easily follow to become a Virtual CEO:

  1. Create a list of ALL the tasks required for the success of your business.
  2. Organize those tasks into Processes that can be followed by a new employee. For example, create a process for Social Media posting or Packaging and Shipping.
  3. Enroll in Virtual Staff Finder and begin the basic training on how to find excellent outsourced staff
  4. Sign up for Asana. In my opinion, Asana is the #1 Project Management Software. You’ll love it!
  5. Sign up for The Hiring Academy. You’ll learn exactly how to become an expert at hiring the right person, the first time and everytime.
  6. Expand your business wildly while creating more time for you!
