How do you hire an assistant to a start up business?

Currently juggling a lot of tasks on my start up business and would be looking into hiring a virtual assistant. Could you help me how to start? And can you share experiences of hiring one? Thanks!

    You want to use sites like Fiverr and UPWORK.  You go there and you search for virtual assistants.  When you see the profile of someone you think can do the job, then you contact them and make arrangements for them to do it for you.  Then you pay them.

    You deduct the cost of their work from your taxes.

    If they are based in the USA...and if you are also in the USA, you will need to send them a 1099 if you pay them more than $300 in a fiscal year.
