Let us help you get your business where it needs to be BEFORE you start panicking.
You’re here because you know something needs to change. Panicking? Maybe not quite yet. But you know you will be if you don’t get the help you need. And soon.
So, why haven’t you hired an assistant yet? Perhaps it’s because:
- You barely have time to get through your to-do list as it is. How will you find time to vet, hire, and train someone new?
- You have heard too many horror stories about VAs who take the money and run, which would result in wasted time, energy, and money. It would put you back at square one.
- Quality is paramount in your organization, and you’re worried about how someone else could reach the high standards you’ve set.
- Delegation is hard. Period. You built your business to do work that you’re passionate about, not manage someone else.
Don’t Panic Management was built to address these concerns. We’ve spent the last decade working with entrepreneurs of all shapes and sizes, understanding their foundational issues, and learning what’s holding them back from growth. We’ve built a process that digs deep into the operations of their businesses and identifies how an assistant can help them scale while also focusing on the whole person—encouraging them to live a life they love.
We’ll take the guesswork out of hiring a virtual assistant in three steps.
1. Complete The Panic Proof Blueprint
Our approach is data-driven, which is why we’ve created the Panic Proof Blueprint. This is a living, breathing tool that will guide you from “I am pulling my hair out doing things I’m not uniquely qualified to do” to “I can breathe again knowing I’m focusing on the work that needs me the most.”
It all starts with tracking your time for at least a week. Sound tedious? We’ll be honest: it is. But this step is crucial to understanding what you’re actually doing versus what you think you’re doing versus what you want to be doing. And we don’t hold back! We can’t make accurate recommendations without accurate data.
Next, you’ll schedule a 90-minute session with Jenn. She’s the beautiful mind that pushes you to think deeply about your overall business goals, organizes your seemingly endless list of ideas and projects, and gets a delegation plan in place. She’ll encourage you (gently, but firmly) to hone in on the tasks and processes that you’re uniquely qualified to do so that you’ll feel proud of the work you’re doing each day, not exhausted by it.
The goal? Two lists: Stuff for you to do and stuff for someone else to do. “Someone else” may mean a VA, a coach, a financial advisor, or someone else. If we’re not what you need, that’s okay! We want you to succeed in the way that’s best for you. (But, spoiler alert, EVERYONE could use an assistant at some point, so the chances are high that there will be at least a few things for Don’t Panic to do!)
Then, we’ll finalize your Blueprint. After that, you’re able to take it with you and conquer your own dragons or let us carry the sword.
2. Meet Your Perfect Match
Once we know what you’re ready to delegate, how you like to work, and what your goals are for the next three, six, and twelve months (and beyond!), we’ll take a look at our team of highly skilled virtual assistants to decide who might be the right fit for you. We don’t just do this with your task list in mind. We use our matchmaking skills to partner you with someone we think will serve you well in the long run. Someone who can grow with you, become invested in your success, and perhaps most importantly, can make you feel cared for.
While we believe in the power of automation, we know that the critical decision of hiring someone cannot be automated. That’s why we take the utmost care in personally matching you with the right person for the right reasons. It’s not just about who is available. It’s who can truly serve you in a way that will make a meaningful difference in your business.
3. Reap the Benefits of a Team
Each member of our team has gone through a rigorous testing and hiring process, has been trained on our high standards of success, and is kind, honest, reliable, and trustworthy. As a service-based business, we understand that our work is only as good as our team. We cherish our people (and we hope you will, too).
We would be remiss to call ourselves a “virtual assistant agency” and not lean on the power of our collective decades of experience. That’s why Zoom, Slack, and ClickUp are our best virtual friends. It’s why we hold frequent “Latte & Learn” sessions where we share tips and tricks about how we get work done. (And, by the way, we do this because we want to, not because we are “required” to by some faceless HR policy.)
We believe there is no question too basic or too simple because we know that being detail-oriented means digging deeper and understanding the bigger picture before finding a solution.
What does this mean for you? It means we’ll always ask each other before we ask you. You won’t have to worry about getting questions that feel basic or elementary. We’ll do things the way you want them done, but we’ll use the knowledge of our team to make sure we aren’t wasting your time.
Find your serenity.
Success looks different to each individual. We get that. But we also understand that if you’re bogged down in every detail of your business, you’ll never find the success that will help you grow. You’ll always be that lonely person sitting at her desk, typing away, and surrounded by flames whispering, “It’s fine. Everything is fine.”
We want you to find a place of calm and focus. We want you to wake up every day excited to do your job, not dreading your inbox. That’s what we’re here to help you do.
So, what do you say?
