AWIR with Jaime & Sara: Post Game Interview

Today, Bottleneck Virtual Assistants CEO Jaime Jay and COO Sara Knox talk about the challenges that they have encountered for the past week. They also share some fruitful conversations from their meetings and how they deal with the challenges. With this edition of A Week in Review, get a glimpse inside their business and daily lives.

Taking Responsibility

Jamie shares his conversation with Miha Matlievski that focuses on how he dealt with his debt in just a day and how he survived it. Jamie says that he is glad and proud of Miha’s courage, as he took responsibility for his actions. Miha’s story is indeed motivational, especially for those who are struggling financially with their business.

“He had a real estate based company, and he went in over five million dollars in debt in one day. Coming so close to committing suicide, overcoming that, and taking responsibility for his actions and then turning it in his business. He came out of that into a 10 figure business.” – Jamie Jay

New Way of Invoicing

Jamie and Sara also talk about Sara’s hardships about switching from PayPal to Quickbooks as their new way of invoicing. Sara says that switching over to a new system gave her a hard time because the system’s line was not giving her the exact solutions to her problems. Thanks to her friend’s help, she is able to manage Quickbooks easily. Additionally, Jamie says that this kind of challenge is what makes them grow more.

“We’re switching from PayPal because of the exorbitant fees over to this new subscription-based program so that we’re not billing hourly or anything like. We’re billing in advance, and we’ve adopted a subscription-based model to make accounting easier.” – Jamie Jay

The Friction Points

Jamie states that they were able to fix the friction points with the best of their ability. Challenges are hard to deal with but when they identify those friction points then they can fix and repair it. He also says that fixing friction points and overcoming those challenges are all worth it because it provides them a new and updated workflow.

“Any system and process, it’s a living breathing aspect of your business. It constantly needs nutrition just like a human being. We need to eat, we need to drink to stay alive. It’s the same way with a business. You need to keep fueling that business and infusing it with updated material, updated steps, updated technology so that you’re staying on the upside of any challenges that you may come into contact with.” – Jamie Jay

Sara and Jaime went out on their back porch on this beautiful sunny day in Springfield, MO.

They discuss the challenges, but they also enjoy the successes.

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
