Executive assistant? No, thanks. 

I don’t need one. It’s too expensive. It’s just a waste of money!

I can handle everything anyway, like literally – everything!


Not so fast right there.

Do you even know what an executive assistant can actually do for you?

Imagine being someone who could speak on your behalf. Someone who can create stability in your world by managing things like your email, your calendar, and even your clients – all that so you can have a better work-life balance. 

I bet you didn’t know that, did you?

So today, I’m going to debunk six common myths that I often hear associated with executive assistants.

Because I want you to fully understand how having an EA has actually transformed my business and I want you to experience the same!

You need to reframe your understanding of just how important and valuable this position is because when you do, you’d be more likely to see it as an investment with palpable ROI. 


In this episode, you will hear:

  • The difference between an EA and a VA
  • 6 myths about EAs that you need to debunk
  • Why you should invest in an EA
  • Treating your EA as a partner, not a subordinate
