085: Fast-Track Your Practice Growth Using a Virtual Assistant with Dr. Margarita Kitova-John

Have you ever wondered if a virtual assistant could really be of benefit to your practice?  It may feel a little scary – and waaaay outside your comfort zone – to pull the trigger, but the benefits can be incredible, especially if you’re just starting out.

In the past several years, I’ve encouraged quite a few of my coaching clients to add virtual assistants to their teams. And every single time, they’re completely amazed by how much time it frees up and how much more efficient things become. (Definitely a skill of a great VA!)

They no longer have to do the mundane things they aren’t passionate about. Instead, they have more free time to explore what lights their heart on fire. 🔥

Today, I invited my good friend and colleague, Dr. Margarita Kitova-John to the podcast. She is a perfect example of someone who added a virtual assistant to their practice and is now reaping some incredible benefits. 🎉

As you’ll hear, she was able to quickly scale her functional medicine practice after being a front-line family physician for over 10 years. Margarita became interested in sharing alternatives with her patients after navigating her own personal health issues and has since fallen completely in love with helping her patients truly resolve their concerns. 💜

Dr. Margarita Kitova-John identifies two key things that have been vital to her success and walks us through her journey of hiring a virtual assistant, from absolute fear to absolutely rocking it. 🎸

So, if you’re on the fence about hiring a virtual assistant, give this episode a listen and then let’s get to it!
