Anyone in my orbit understands that I am “Mrs. Planner.” My husband is “Mr. Planner.” That’s how we roll. It’s not really our surname, but well, it would fit.
With all we have going on, we must map our days, weeks, and months ahead. We pick paths, and we move on them with purpose.
That said, I’m fascinated with how other people manage their time. Your hours are precious, right? You want to use them wisely. What strategies do you employ? How do you ensure that you’re genuinely productive while not driving yourself crazy with stress in the process?
There are many ways to tackle time. Dwight Eisenhower developed the “Eisenhower Matrix,” his four-quadrant matrix, putting tasks into one of four boxes: important and urgent, not important and urgent, important and not urgent, and not important and not urgent.
Maybe you use the “Pomodoro Technique,” a time-management method based on 25-minute stretches of focused work broken by five-minute breaks. Longer breaks, typically 15-to-30 minutes, are taken after four consecutive work intervals.
“Mr. Planner” and I run multiple businesses at once. It’s daunting on its surface, but we block our time into manageable chunks and can do what’s needed without pulling our hair out. We live a good, productive life together. And it’s just fun. We love it.
However, our success wouldn’t be possible without one keyword: “Delegate!”
Our whole business is an enterprise of successful delegation. We put the oxygen mask on our faces first, figuring out how to get ourselves out of the “crisis mode” of business management, then we thought: “Hey, let’s share this!”
That’s HireSmart! It’s a venture in pulling other businesses out of the time crunch that’s killing them. We’ve helped hundreds of people breathe easier over the past decade by utilizing the power of successful delegation.
We set up business owners with highly vetted, quality employees from the Philippines. The cost of living is substantially lower there. This means an hour working remotely for you isn’t nearly as expensive as an hour in your office.
U.S. businesses can leverage this to their advantage, increasing productivity while saving money and not sacrificing quality.
We work hard for clients on the front end of the hiring process so they don’t have to face the challenge of looking abroad for good labor in less expensive markets.
We’ve honed that process over nearly a decade, and we make sure we’re getting the best of the best. And if I wouldn’t hire someone to work directly for me, I won’t approve that person for any of our clients.
Beyond that, I also want our virtual employees to thrive. They’re good people! If you work with them, you’ll see what I mean. So, we provide each of our clients and their families with health and dental insurance. Through our non-profit (www.HireSmartCares.org), we also provide a select number of scholarships each year for children on our VEs. None of that comes at the client’s expense.

Here’s a recent quote from Tony Pinochi of Prandi Property Management about his team of virtual employees through HireSmart.
“They’re all very sweet, very nice, very caring,” said Tony of his virtual staff. “They care about what we think about them. They care about their work product. They are hardworking, smart, and diligent. They want to do good for us all the time. And they do. I absolutely love those girls, and I think they’re all amazing.”
