Episode 195: ADHD, Running an Online Business and Hiring Help with Digital Marketing Strategist, Jen Lehner￼
When I first started this podcast I had so many creative ideas and big ambitions for how to connect with other ADHD women, but actually executing my ideas consistently was a whole different story.
Even though I was drowning on my own, I couldn’t imagine hiring someone to help me with the tasks I was struggling with. What if their work wasn’t up to my standards? Could I really afford to do that? Where would I even begin?
It wasn’t until digital marketing strategist, Jen Lehner, came along with her program, Front Row CEO, that I was finally convinced that not only was it possible to hire help, it was a necessity if I wanted to grow my podcast and achieve my goals. So, I finally caved and hired a virtual assistant, and I haven’t looked back since.
Being ADHD herself, Jen knows how easily all the little tasks can start to snowball on us until we’re left buried under a pile of overwhelm and shame. Getting a virtual assistant completely changed her relationship with her business, her home life, and most importantly, her family, because it allowed her to focus her time and energy on the work she’s brilliant at and take the rest off her plate.
Jen now helps others navigate the process of hiring a VA, including how to find quality candidates, what tasks you can delegate to a VA (it’s more than you’d think!), and how to establish and maintain open communication.
If you’re drowning in overwhelm but don’t feel deserving of a virtual assistant or don’t know where to start, I know Jen’s guidance and encouragement in this episode will give you that push you need to take the first step, just like it did for me.
