Virtual assistants will make your life easier by taking the stress out of your business life. As a small business owner, you need more time so you can make more money and stay competitive in an ever-changing world. 

If you’re spending less than 70 percent of your time on work that doesn’t generate revenue, isn’t building relationships, or isn’t creating new products, then you’re not spending enough time on your business. It means you’re spending too much time in your business. 

This book will show you why Virtual Assistance (VA) is the answer.
Hire the Right Virtual Assistant is the complete guide to:
•Know what a VA is and how they differ from Executive Assistants
•Understand the benefits and need of a VA – it’s more than just outsourcing
•Hiring the right VA the first time in less time than you think
•Finally be able to use the VA right away to make the biggest impact in your business and free up your time

If you had time right now to work on your business instead of in it, what could you do? Could you make a sale? Visit a client and earn more business? Make another 20 calls a day to land more clients? Work the pipeline? Network? Think about your proven method to gain more clients. Using that method, how many more clients could you have if you had more time? This is where you put a VA to work for you. They work in your business so you can work on your business.

I promise that hiring a VA will be the best decision you make for your business. You will get back your time.

Fusion - How Integrating Brand and Culture Powers the World's Greatest Companies

Fusion - How Integrating Brand and Culture Powers the World's Greatest Companies

"This compelling book shows how to connect the image you present to the outside world with the values and norms that operate inside your world of work."
--Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of ORIGINALS and GIVE AND TAKE

"Denise Lee Yohn hit a home run with her first book, What Great Brands Do. Now she's written FUSION and it is just as provocative. Denise proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that great companies are powered by brand-culture fusion. I highly recommend this book!"
--Ken Blanchard, Coauthor, The New One Minute Manager®, Coeditor, Servant Leadership in Action

Internal culture + External brand = FUSION

For years, leaders at companies like Southwest, Starbucks, and Google have done something differently that's put their organizations at the top of "the most admired companies," "best brands," and "great workplaces" lists. They don't often talk about that "something" specifically in terms of brand-culture fusion, but, as author Denise Lee Yohn reveals, aligning and integrating their brands and cultures is precisely how they've achieved their successes. 

Independently, brand and culture are powerful, unsung business drivers. But Denise shows that when you fuse the two together to create an interdependent and mutually-reinforcing relationship between them, you create organizational power that isn't possible by simply cultivating one or the other alone. Through detailed case studies from some of the world's greatest companies (including Amazon, Airbnb, Adobe, Nike, and Salesforce), exclusive interviews with company executives, and insights from Denise's 25+ years working with world class brands, FUSION provides readers with a roadmap for increasing competitiveness, creating measurable value for customers and employees, and future-proofing their business. 

For readers interested in workplace culture, brand management, strategy, leadership, employee experience, employee engagement, integration, branding, and organization development.
