There is one thing I can say to this: If you can’t delegate then there is no reason having an admin virtual assistant.
People don’t feel comfortable exposing their selves to their admin virtual assistant. Their work, their emails and communications, and personal notes shall be seen and read by their admin. There is no point hiring an admin when one does not feel safe and sees admin as risks to profession, business, or career. Admin is a resource given by the organization to make you more effective in your task. I guess you need to separate personal emails from corporate emails this time.
Create another ID for your personal email. Gmail is best but Yahoo is also free. There are other email providers you may purchase an email account too or purchase one at Godaddy and then use the domain for your free online photo filer or photo storage while you make use of the free email that comes with the package for the price of $7 to $10 a year depending on your promo code. This is cheap considering your privacy right?
There is nothing wrong in driving yourself to be a better executive or business entrepreneur. Try to ignore the combination of things you usually do and leave it to your admin virtual assistant to manage. There is no management guidebook when handling delegation. It is all up to you but you should not be spending 90% of your time reading on mails. Let your virtual assistant filter it for you!
