This equals to a world of Do-It-Yourselfers – thinking they can do it all on their own. However, what really happens is forgotten meetings, overdue projects, stress and fatigue; to name a few. Many solopreneurs have a fear of delegating overwhelming tasks to a Virtual Service Professional (Virtual Assistant, Executive Assistant, Virtual Support Provider, Virtual Service Provider), although they’re struggling to manage the daily operations of their businesses. They know they need help, but refrain from hiring that help while everything crumbles around them.
