Virtual Assistants Vs. Interns. Wait...I Can Hire Interns For My Business??

Instead of hiring Virtual Assistants for your business, you should seriously consider hiring interns. Instead of paying them an hourly wage, I just pay them on a commission base (20-50% of the profits of the deals that come through them). I work with several interns across the country. Now, I'm really starting to see the value of interns and how building a team of them can really take your business to a whole new level.

VAs (or employees) can be a big waste of time and money. The great thing about interns is, the worst that could happen is that you get a bad intern (I've had quite a few.) But in that case, just hire another one (or a couple more.) There's no limit to how many you can work with and you don't need to pay them unless they make money (in which case you both make money.)

Hiring interns is a great way to really leverage your wholesaling business (or any business for that matter) and I've learned this through the process. I'm currently managing 20-25 interns so I'm more than willing to answer any questions about this topic that you may have.
