AWIR: Keeping Up the Momentum

On today’s show, Bottleneck Distant Assistants (BNDA) CEO Jaime Jay and COO Sara Knox talk about how they keep the momentum up when they achieve their goals and objectives. Also, they talk about how they overcome the challenges in the process of launching the improved Bottleneck.

Building Relationship

Sara and Jamie look back to the events that happened for the past week. They share the changes that they have made and the things they improved with Bottleneck Virtual Assistants to the upgraded version, Bottleneck Distant Assistants. Jamie invites everyone to visit their new website, and Sara shares the reason why they decided to improve and change their company. 

“We’re relationship-based and not transactional-based. We like to build a relationship like what we have with our internal and external team who we consider as part of our family.” – Sara Knox

Keep the Momentum Up

As Sara and Jamie express how relieved and happy they are now that the new Bottleneck Distant Assistants launched, they share a tip for everyone on how to keep the momentum up. Sara and Jamie say that you have to take a moment to congratulate yourself and get the rest you deserve. You should hold onto the foundation and stay motivated, excited, and energized so that you can repeat what you’ve done and achieve more.

“It’s all about focus. It’s all about keeping your eyes on the goal. You have to celebrate the moment, but then you have to get your mindset back. You gotta stay hungry you and gotta stay focused.” – Sara Knox

Staying Positive

Sara and Jamie share the tough times that they have encountered in managing payrolls and completing processes and systems. Jamie says that it’s normal to express frustration when time gets rough because we’re human beings. Additionally, Sara says that making a mistake is a way to learn, and it’s better to stay positive even when everything gets hard.

“When you make a mistake, you screw up, or it doesn’t go as planned, that’s nothing to get down on. It’s disappointing but it’s a learning experience. I turn it around and I always want to turn a negative into a positive.” – Sara Knox

Sara and Jaime went out on their back porch on this beautiful sunny day in Springfield, MO. From their back deck, they talk about all the workflows they are putting in place, building a great culture within their organization from a distant relationship – or remote-based environment. They discuss the challenges, but they also enjoy the successes. 

They have recently launched the ‘ALL NEW BOTTLENECK’ in a brand new category called ‘DEDICATED DISTANT ASSISTANTS’. Bottleneck Virtual Assistants is the world’s first Dedicated Distant Assistant company.
