Every summer, thousands of hackers get together for the Def Con conference in Las Vegas. The term “hacker” makes the participants seem like bored adolescents with some computer skills. In reality, Def Con attendees are highly trained mathematicians, cryptographers and computer scientists.

The Biggest Mistake Business Professionals Make when Outsourcing Their Social Media

Outsourcing important business growth tasks like social media management and scheduling makes smart business sense for the already time-starved entrepreneur. Social media is critically important to the growth and visibility of any business while also being an effective way of driving traffic back to a website. As easy as it is to hand this project off to a qualified virtual assistant, business professionals often makes the assumption that their new hire will “know what to do” when it comes to proper social networking on behalf of their business.

How to Make the Most of Your Virtual Assistant’s Time

When you hire a virtual assistant, you are hiring them as an independent contractor, but also you are hiring a secret weapon of effective business-building.

Independent contractors are individuals who work for you, but are not considered an employee. This means business owners do not have to deal with payroll, taxes, pensions or benefits such as medical insurance.  Another added benefit to hiring VAs is that they can be hired for short term project and typically work at an hourly rate. This is more cost effective than hiring a full time employee and outsourcing business tasks like payroll, blogging, graphic design and more and a bold and savvy more for many entrepreneurs.
