Upon recognizing that if I didn’t hire an assistant my business would essentially be sitting at “stalled”, I connected with Riah and her team. One of the things I am good at is recognizing that there are certain tasks I do not want to spend time on, and will happily pay someone else to do (like grocery shopping and why I pay for my food to be shopped for by someone else).
Well finding my “soulssitant” (aka soul assistant) I knew would take me a lot of extra time that I didn’t have in the middle of my business exploding (in the best way) and being a mom and wife and all the things. When I learned of Riah’s VA Matchmaking Service, the clouds parted and angels came together in a chorus singing “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan (cause my angels got flavor) and I was IN.
This service was everything and MORE than I could have dreamed of. It’s equivalent to the Instacart, the Uber, the Netflix of finding a Virtual Assistant. I simply told Riah and her Team EXACTLY what I desired in my dream assistant (I mean I got super specific because my work is super specific), from my salary budget to their demeanor and skills needed for the tasks I was requiring. I mean, if you only drink Coke, would you settle for Pepsi? Not me! And not Riah’s Team!
And that was it! I told them what I wanted, gave a job description, and then I released it to them to handle, like when you say a prayer and give it to the Almighty to make it happen.
They filtered through HUNDREDS of applications, gathering only the best of the best according to my specifications. They performed first round interviews, too!! All while I was happily not even thinking about it and on my merry way doing the work I love. When they had the Top 3 candidates, they sent me the first round interview videos, and I chose 2 that I wanted to do a second interview with.
I completed my second interview and loved them both so much, I hired them BOTH!!
This process couldn’t have been any more seamless or dreamlike. I will be going back to them again as my team and business continues to grow, and HIGHLY recommend any business owner who has either never hired a VA before OR has not had success with a VA in the past contact Riah about this service. Pinky promise you’ll find your Soulssisant, too, and maybe your angels will sing you a song (if not you can borrow mine).
