Rave The eaHELP team comes from a variety of different career backgrounds, and have worked with managers of all types and stripes throughout our careers. That's why Scott William's recent post on 7 Ways Leaders Destroy Their Teams resonated with us. Unfortunately, we've seen each one of Scott's examples play out in our various prior positions. We've seen each one of these "Leadership Destroyers" (as Scott calls them) in action, and have seen what serious consequences behaviors like talking without listening Read More
shutterstock_109629416 (1) We've been having an increasing number of conversations on the eaHELP team recently about how we can "shut off" our work. As a virtual team, it's sometimes really hard - we don't physically leave an office or work space each day, since we each work from our homes. It can be really easy to look up from our laptops and realize that it's 6 or 7 or 8 at night - and we've missed valuable time with our families and friends that we can't get back. So, how do you manage to shut things down - both your Read More
shutterstock_23865100 Some pretty big-name leaders from some pretty big-name companies have been pretty vocal about their opposition to employees working virtually. Those leaders no doubt have their reasons for making those decisions, but as an all-virtual company we think they're missing the major benefits that come with allowing employees to work from wherever suits them. A major benefit - it saves employers significant amounts of money. Here's why: 1. People get more done. Our clients consistently tell us how surprised Read More

shutterstock_47180218 Anybody remember the first video shown on MTV back in 1981? (Some of our readers weren't even born in 1981, which we're still trying to get our brains around...) It was Video Killed the Radio Star by British group The Buggles, and the song promoted the expanded use of technology while worrying about its effects on life (and music) as we knew it. For the most part, technological advances since 1981 have been incredible. They've allowed us to create an entire business providing virtual executive Read More
shutterstock_108783638 The greatest names in innovation and creativity of the last century - Thomas Edison, John Lennon, Steve Jobs, etc. - conjure up images of the lone genius tinkering and creating and eventually emerging with something that will change the world irrevocably. And there's no doubt that these individuals did give us things that fundamentally changed the ways we worked and listened and learned. But they never did it alone. This piece from Inc. outlines the four types of individuals who need to come Read More
shutterstock_105901463 The eaHELP leadership team spends an enormous amount of time discussing our company culture. It's a more challenging task than it might be for some leaders, as all our employees work virtually from their homes and workspaces around the country. But we've believed from the beginning that it will be our culture, and that culture's focus on empowering our leaders and providers to find new ways of working, that will wake our business successful. That's why we were delighted to find this presentation Read More
shutterstock_182104205 (1) Recently, we ran across this infographic from Inc. on what the workforce will look like in 2020 - which is only six years away. (We'll wait while you absorb that fact. It took us a while to unscramble our brains after that realization.) It's not surprising that many of the jobs that exist today will be fundamentally changed by smart machines and systems, and will change the nature of work and workers as we know them today. The graphic highlighted a group of 10 skills that the authors believe Read More

eahelp4th We hope all our clients, virtual assistants, and staff enjoy a safe, happy Independence Day! We're grateful we get to provide the freedom and independence of working virtually for our virtual assistants all across the United States. We know that the value we place on things like freedom and independence has its roots in the words of men like John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and the other men who pledged "their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor" by signing the Declaration Read More
