Do you need a Virtual Assistant?

Yes! Basically, if you are reading this article, then you are at the point where you need a Virtual Assistant.

Why should you read this blog if you have already answered my question?

The thing is, you don’t know that you need one or you are not quite ready to let go of the work that you have and give it to someone else.

If you are a sole business owner and you are spending more time doing tasks that you really don’t want to be doing or are taking up too much time which is taking you away from the jobs that you love doing then you need a Virtual Assistant.

I speak to many business owners who are frustrated with not having the time to dedicate to their passion and finding that their time is wasted on administration tasks that they don’t want to do. Their strengths just don’t lie in these task, they much prefer to follow their passion.

There is no reason why you can’t spend your time following your passion. The answer is outsourcing the boring stuff.

But how do I do this, you ask?

Talk to someone like me, a Virtual Assistant and we can help. We can help you decide where to start when thinking about a Virtual Assistant.

Here are some questions that you might like to ask yourself to help you on your pathway to getting assistance in your business.

1. Think about your current situation, what is not going well?

Sit down with a coffee and write down everything that springs to mind. Don’t overthink it, don’t think about how or cost, just write. This will help to get things down and releasing the overload that you may feel.

2. What is not working and what’s on your plate that you would like to get rid of?

Is there something in your business that isn’t working for you or that you know could be done better. Maybe you need some systems in place but just don’t have time to do it. Maybe there is work you are doing that you hate doing and you waste so much time procrastinating. Ensure that you add this to your list above.

3. What are some of the obstacles, challenges and struggles you regularly have?

What are you regularly avoiding? Are you finding that you could be doing things more efficiently but just don’t have the time to change anything? Are you challenged for time and just not seeing as many clients as you would like to?

4. What would you ideally like to see happen in the first 90 days of bringing on someone to help you?

What are the tasks that you can handover immediately to make your life easier? What would make the biggest impact for you. That is what you start with.

5. How will achieving this make a difference to your business and your life?

Imagine what your life could be like if you have assistance to focus on your passion. Will you enjoy your business more? Will that impact your family life as well?
