Brian Jones on Show #195: Recognising Your Own Business Opportunity 

Brian Jones is the Founder and CEO of VA Platinum, a team of experts in outsourcing and offshoring for business owners.

When Brian found the 70-hour work week he was doing just wasn’t working for his work/life balance, he decided to use virtual team members to lighten the load.

After drastically reducing his work hours and giving himself more time for the things he loves, he wanted to do the same for others. He founded VA Platinum to help other business owners take back their time by utilising his superstar team of staff based in the Philippines.

Today, Brian shares the story of what inspired him to transform his work-life with virtual assistants and the lessons he learned when starting out.

He shares the resources he uses to help clients build a virtual team and how business gurus, inspirational leaders, and mentors have helped him along the way.

He reveals his average working day and how he stays organised to make sure everything gets done. Brian shares tips and tools that can help you work with a virtual team and help clients overcome the fears of outsourcing.

He also shares why he uses a Mindset Mentor, what he does to help him deal with days when things go wrong, and what makes him feel like he is living more.

“I had to learn a lot about developing structures, systems, templates, ways to check-in with teams.”
