Hello Bottleneck and friends! My name is Bethany Michaels, Founder and CEO of Content Social Media Queen, a marketing agency located in Orange County, CA. You may recognize me from the “How to Rebuild Business from Ashes and Light a Creative Fire” video collaboration with Bottleneck. What a fun treat to join their conversations about business, life, entrepreneurship, growth, and more!
I’m here today on the blog to share my story with you. I want to offer my honest feedback about working with this amazing company. It’s similar to seeing an incredible movie. You can’t help but share everything you loved about it and how it changed your life with your friends and people closest to you. This is exactly why I’m here today — to share how Bottleneck has quite frankly changed my life.
I originally heard of Bottleneck Distant Assistants through a friend. While working at a co-working space in Downtown Fullerton, CA, I was having lunch with a couple of desk mates that day and expressed my dire need for a dedicated assistant. One of my colleagues, another small business owner recommended Bottleneck, so I set an appointment with them right away.
Working with Bottleneck Distant Assistants Vs. Hiring in Person
Hiring someone in my city would have cost me an arm and a leg. It would have required much more energy, money, and time to invest. You may be thinking — so is hiring Bottleneck a shortcut then? I would say yes and no.
Yes, because it helped me save time and money. No, because the quality of work that their dedicated distant assistant provides is much better than some contractors I’ve hired locally. After a thorough onboarding process, Bottleneck was able to source me a few specific distant assistants who they thought would be the best fit for me. It’s like they carved this person from the deep inner workings of my brain! After a few interviews, I chose Keesha to join my team — and I can not say enough great things about working with her.
The Benefits of Working with Bottleneck Distant Assistants
I also love how Bottleneck offers you so much valuable information to help you throughout the entire process. I was able to train Keesha to perform tasks and carry out projects so similar to my way of thinking, that it lifted such a huge burden off of me.
One of my main goals as a business owner was to free up my own time to enjoy life. As a CEO, it requires a lot of sweat equity to build and establish your business. I had exhausted myself at the beginning of building Content Social Media Queen, that I needed some relief. Which is exactly what Keesha came in and provided. She was such a breath of fresh air. And even though we are 7,185 something miles apart, our distance and time have never interfered with work performance.
What the DA has to Say
I have talked to Keesha, and this is what she has to say about working for Bottleneck Distant Assistants:
Keesha, Bottleneck Distant Assistants
I have never known any other company that knows how to listen and take care of their employees. They check up on you, not just to check your work but to check on your well being. To me, that is the main selling point of Bottleneck. They are very compassionate and supportive.
She also adds that not having to be away from home for work daily means being there for her young kids all the time. Being a Distant Assistant lets her provide for them and give them the attention they need as they grow up.
I would like to reiterate how important it is to hire someone you trust. Someone with credentials and clear communication. Someone who will uphold your company values and mission. And that’s exactly what I’ve received working with Bottleneck. If you haven’t yet, I would highly suggest booking a consultation. Whether you’re a small business owner like me or have a larger corporation, the benefits of a distant assistant will change your world. Especially since the inception of COVID, so many businesses are requiring help from a dedicated assistant in a distanced world.
Since working with Jaime, I’ve increased my net profit, increased my client’s satisfaction, and increased my quality of life because I have more time to spend with loved ones and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The benefits are endless. Thank you Bottleneck for your service. I’m so appreciative of your incredible integrity and character. It’s hard to come by in this digital age. You’re authentic, kind, and gracious. Many people say business is cut-throat. But you make business feel fun, enjoyable, and inviting like an ocean breeze. I think I’ll take the latter. Thank you!
