Even the people we look up to have those moments...

Poser, faker or fraud. No matter what you call it, there comes a time when we all look across the conference table and felt like an impostor.

No matter how much experience, skill or education there comes a point when we meet someone or come across a work situation that makes us feel like we're lacking some essential quality that distinguishes as a qualified professional.

Trust me, it happens to everyone.

On this week's episode of Kickstart Monday, I am sharing my top three tips for overcoming Impostor Syndrome.

Virtual Saves You Money

In the business world time equals money, and when you're a small business owner it's super easy to convince yourself that doing everything on your own will save money. I'm here to tell you that mindset is a false economy.

This month's guest on Live from the Hive is John Morgan from Island Breeze Virtual Assistants and we are going to be talking about how to save your money and your sanity by hiring a virtual assistant.

Island Breeze offers just about every service a start-up or small business owner could need.

  • Accounting/Bookkeeping
  • Billing
  • Administrative Tasks
  • CRM Management
  • Email Newsletters
  • Meeting/Event Planning
  • and many, many more!

Thanks to the internet, it's easier than ever to hire an administrative assistant to take care of billing, set up your newsletter or simply manage your social media, and it's a lot cheaper than you think.

Whether you pay by the hour or the project, a virtual assistant can save you money by freeing up your time so you can spend it on activities that make you money like sales and servicing clients.
