Reynolds says, be committed to training him/her and reccomends putting together a training checklist (or job description) for the assistant to ensure success. Stand by this list and the job description you provided to him/her so you can keep yourself accountable. It is important you train your assistant on everything. Go through scripts on the phone, data entry, closings, listings and everything else that you do.
According to Reynolds, the number one reason assistants fail is because of a lack of training. If you invest time and training into your assistant, both of you will reap the benefits.
Imagine the Possibilities
Think about all of the things you could pursue with the help of an assistant – marketing, having a sharper focus on your top 25 clients, lead generation, increasing the number of closings … the list is endless!
If you’re not sold, try hiring a part-time assistant to test the waters. You will quickly see an increase in your return on investment, and if you decide you want to go all in, you will likely find a full-time assistant in no time.
