Jason Hartman takes some time before this 10th episode interview to discuss the concept of the mini-family office and how you can incorporate VAs (virtual assistants) into the mix. Jason provides a litany of websites where you can find VAs, as well as an insight into what characteristics you need to be looking for. Then there’s the monetary side of it: does it make financial sense to hire a VA to do this? Well, you can use the Hartman Property Management Metric to figure that out.
Then Jason talks with Peter Shankman, author of Faster Than Normal: Turbocharge Your Focus, Productivity, and Success with the Secrets of the ADHD Brain, about how people with ADHD can use it to their advantage, what actions people need to take in order to be successful in their ventures, how to figure out what your audience wants, and when to ignore your audience.
