Bottleneck Distant Assistants CEO Jaime Jay and COO Sara Knox help business owners by working hard in finding them the best distant assistants for them. They make everything easier but, have you ever wondered how they do it amazingly? Join them today as they give a little sneak peek at what a typical work week looks like for them. They also share the challenges they have in leading and running a business.
Typical Work Week
Sara shares that they focus on individual tasks during Mondays, so they don’t schedule many meetings. For the rest of the weekdays, Jaime has back to back meetings while Sara works in the background. Additionally, Sara shares how she helps Jaime when he’s super busy:
“He’s concentrating so much, and I can hear his energy. It’s infectious. I can hear him laughing and bantering back and forth with whomever he’s talking to. I just love to hear that so, I like to take care of him out there and do what I can to make it make his day easier for him.” – Sara Knox
Workspace Set Up
In line with what a typical work week looks like for Sara and Jaime, they share their workspace set up and how they get to work on it. Jaime says that Sara’s workspace looks like a jungle because it’s filled with plants with just a little wall. Additionally, Sara shares that Jaime found a new social media platform to send messages called Clubhouse: Drop-in Audio Chat:
“If you guys have an apple device and you’re not on Cubhouse, let me know. I think I have a couple of invites left. It’s audio-based. People can talk, make statements, ask questions, and anything like that.” – Jaime Jay
Reaching Out for Teammates
Sara says that many people are having a hard time to admit vulnerability. One of the challenges they had was the difficulty of communicating with distant assistants that are a little off. Also, she says that it’s okay to be a little off because everyone is not perfect and we’ve all got flaws but there should always be communication.
“We don’t want to pry personally if there’s a personal challenge or something like that. But the second we find out that something’s a little bit off, it’s really important for us to address the issue.” – Jaime Jay
