So, unless you’ve been living under a rock – which honestly doesn’t seem like such a bad idea these days given some headlines – you know that our CEO Tricia Sciortino has written a book, Rise Up & Lead Well: How Leveraging An Assistant Will Change Your Life & Maximize Your Time.

She knows firsthand that for so many leaders, there’s a moment in their personal and professional life where they realize that they’re in their own way.  They know they need help – and that’s exactly where an assistant comes in. 

Effectively using an assistant is key to a leader’s success. But this can be intimidating, especially if you don’t know how to lead an assistant. 

So her new book shares the real-world examples she’s learned over the last decade – some of it spent as a virtual assistant and some as an executive. 

Simply put: She knows what she’s talking about because she’s lived it and that perspective taught her how to train and leverage a great assistant. 

 

“But I’m not a leader,” you counter.

Maybe not yet.

And I don’t have an assistant,” you add.

Again, not yet.

 

But the fact that you’re here on this blog tells us three conclusive things about you:

  • First, there’s a very high probability that you’re deeply invested in your professional development. 
  • Second, it tells us that even if you’re not presently a leader, you’re aspirational and clearly in the driver’s seat of your career trajectory.
  • And third, you actively seek out opportunities to learn beyond your current reality. 

See? You belong.

But we get it. Maybe you’ve just saved her book in your Amazon cart for ‘later.’ Later schmater.

Just as the ancient proverb says, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago; the second-best time is now,” if you want success and growth in the future, the best time to act is now

So here’s an excerpt from Chapter 8 on Scheduling & Time-Blocking: Making The Most Of 24 Hours – a tiny taste of the goodness nestled between those pages, just waiting for you to enjoy.
