Trello is my go to app/tool for organizing my business, my projects, and my personal life.
There is so much you can do with Trello and it is free.
I don't get paid to promote Trello. I do get some swag now and again. They sent me a t-shirt one time and some chocolate. They gave me some stickers for my boards and the ability to upload custom backgrounds.
How I use Trello for my businesses:
I have a Trello organization for each of my businesses. Then I have boards for the different projects within those organizations.
On the boards I have columns and cards. these can be dragged anywhere I want them to be.
One of my favorite parts of Trello is the ability to copy and move the cards and columns. The next thing I really like are the checklists.
You can also copy a checklist from board to board with one click.
You can add calendar to the board. You can also add deadlines on different tasks.
I have a board for my leads and clients. I have a board for each project I am working on. I am a very visual person so seeing the boards really helps me.
In my VA company, we have a Trello board set up for each client. Each client can see their own board, add feedback, and see what is going on at any time. We manage all the output and delegation of tasks from each Trello board.
I created some video tutorials that are very easy to follow. Some of them are very popular with great feedback about how helpful they are so don't hesitate to learn how you can simplify your business and your life.
There are a few questions I hear from agents consistantly. Agents undertsand the importance of delegating and have every intention of doing so. However, there are a few things that hold them back from taking action.
#1. ” I want to delegate my tasks but I don't know what to delegate.”
This is the most asked question about hiring a virtual assistant. I created a list of 21 things you can take off your plate right now and delegate without the investment of time to train a virtual assistant.

I just set up this funnel, so please let me know if anything in the funnel path is broken.
#2. ” I don't have time to train a virtual assistant”.
Not to worry, we get that! This is why in 2008 I started to train our virtual assistants and many of our vas are with us after years of working.
I do all the trainings, I do all the managing, I do all the quality controls.
One day I will be able to hire a manager who does this with me but for now, it is me.
I am VERY close to my virtual assistants making sure they feel comfortable and increase their skill levels year after year.
#3. ” I don't know how to vet and hire a virtual assistant.”
This is already being done for you. We do all the vetting, hiring and processing. This saves you tons of time and frustration. I have heard so many stories of agents hiring , then training, then the assistant quits and they have to start all over again. If a VA quit, we all fill in to get your tasks done and hire another va to take the place of the one who quits.
I don't know what I would do without our virtual assistants. They do so much for us. Text me to get started: 561-502-1577.
Here is what one of our agents has to say:
