Virtual Executive Assistant

Summary Description:

This position is a combination of a Virtual Executive Assistant along with a bit of outbound sales/pitching. You will primarily assist with 4 broad categories of tasks:

1. “Pitching” (Proposals):

Writing proposals/pitches to connect with speaking engagements

Writing proposals/pitches for consulting at companies

Writing proposals/pitches to persuade individuals to commit to an interview

Warm calls to previous clients to rebook me as a speaker/consultant

2. Communications:

Contacting and scheduling interviews

Point person for communications with events, conferences, etc. (getting paid, getting details of prior events, post-event feedback, etc.)

Reaching out to clients with thank you notes, birthday wishes, etc.

3. Research:

Finding new opportunities for speaking (conferences, events, etc.)

Finding new guests for interviews

Drafting interview questions

Conduct specialized research for new books

Some minor proofreading

Helping create and collate audience surveys

4. “Management”:

Working with my Personal Assistant to arrange travel & accommodation

Keeping me on track and focused (managing my time so that I do what I should)

Helping manage relevant social media accounts

Partially managing my email

About me: My name is Jeremy, and I’m an entrepreneur who has built a few businesses, and I’m growing another company now.

More interestingly for you, I’m beginning to do more speaking, consulting, and writing. Your primary job will be to help me build this venture. Obviously, I will be heavily involved, but I need someone who can - over time - start taking over the pitching, communication, coordination, and some of the research and management.

Most relevantly, I am personally (and broadly) driven by the need to create more curiosity, excellence, and playfulness in the world. That includes, for instance, working on a diverse set of projects: (a) speaking about shifting social “narratives” that drive how people interact with businesses, governments, and each other; (b) working on a book about new ‘standards’ of excellence across diverse areas like food, marketing, art, etc.; and (c) producing a show (Curious) that chases curiosity for its own sake, from cryptocurrency to the history of magic.

Ultimately, I am seeking someone who can stay excited about helping to create more curiosity, excellence, and playfulness in the world.

Requirements:

Hours:

10-20 Hours / Week (may quickly evolve to a full-time position)

Various tasks may need to be done on the same day that I communicate them to you, so a flexible schedule is necessary.

There are no specific hours, but you must have some availability during weekday working hours.

Experience: 1+ Year Experience as Executive Assistant, a Sales/Marketing Assistant, or a Research Assistant (so long as you have experience writing proposals/pitches)

Languages:

Fluent in English

Strong Plus: Experience in booking speaking engagements and/or consulting. Or, conversely, experience in a role where you were constantly being “pitched.”

Desired Qualities, Knowledge, & Skills:

Excellent at pitching or selling to events, companies, and/or organizations. You must enjoy and be great at writing proposals that get to the heart of what event planners and companies most want to pay for.

Curiosity. I work on a wide range of topics, including the history of thought, shifting cultural narratives, cryptocurrency, excellence in food, etc. You must have a strong drive to learn and explore.

You must be looking for a long-term partnership, not just a temporary job. I’m looking for someone who wants a permanent position - and growing involvement - in helping me build new and exciting projects.

High Energy: You must be able to get yourself excited about projects

Meticulous & Rigorous: you must have the ability to focus and work in a concentrated manner.

Relatively high self-confidence.

Must be able to solve problems - to know when you can figure things out without me and when you should ask me

Skills: Market Research, Research, Virtual Assistant
