As the founder of Extend Your team, a Virtual Assistant company, Matthew Yahes helps entrepreneurs and operators of all company sizes grow their business by getting out of the grind. Matthew was working 14 hours a day on his eCommerce portfolio, managing a team of 6, was buried in operations, and it was affecting his marriage. The situation was not tenable. He had enough and finally figured out how to hire an A+ player overseas who could run the operations better than him so he could focus on growth. He realized that the core issue is people look for a “Virtual Assistant” and not a “Real Professional”. In 45 days, Matthew went from working 14 hours to 3 hours a day, and now it’s 3 hours a week. Matthew built his past two companies with a 100% remote workforce and now helps others do the same. In his spare time, he snowboards well, kiteboards poorly, and enjoys life with his incredibly patient wife.
