A quick guide for the overly exhausted business owner looking to reclaim their time.
You did it! You have achieved what you set out to do, what seemed almost impossible. You almost quit 1,000 times before you got to this point. You built a successful and thriving business from the ground up. So many days spent hoping, sweating, grinding, and repeating. The hard work has paid off and the business is growing faster than you can keep up with.
The business has been running you for quite some time and you’ve been juggling all the responsibilities and wearing all the hats. You hate doing the admin side of the business but you sacrifice what little sleep you were going to get to handle it. The thought of marketing is so draining to you, that you can’t even muster the capacity to think of what to even say. The emails staring you in the face give you anxiety that you let them sit just a little bit longer.
You’ve thought about bringing on a virtual assistant but haven’t pulled the trigger on it yet. The thought of taking on a VA kind of scares you, and you might have other factors weighing on you as to why you haven’t hired on yet. So many other entrepreneurs have entertained the same thoughts and fears, but also agree that they should’ve made the plunge a long time ago.
If you are still on the fence about hiring a VA, let these three reasons be your motivating factor to hire one.
You have tasks on your plate that you don’t know how to do.
Youtube has become your best friend. But you genuinely don’t have another minute to spare to try and learn how to create attention grabbing social media posts. Or how to use accounting software efficiently enough to know where your finances stand month of month. Having a VA who can do your bookkeeping or manage your social media marketing can truly be a game changer for you.
Your business is sucking the life from you
All the responsibilities fall to you. You are CEO, head of sales, director of marketing, CFO, laborer, customer service, administrative assistant, and everything else to come up. There aren’t enough hours in the day to handle everything. You’re so busy in your business that you forgot what the words sleep or vacation even mean. Virtual assistance offers a range of services that you can delegate to them, allowing you to free up some of your time so you can try to not scarf down your lunch again (if you even eat lunch at all).
You want to grow and scale your business
Wanting to grow your business is an exciting time. You’ve got the systems in place, the cash ready to operate on, you just need people. Ensuring that you are able to grow and scale your business in either your online community or sales conversation on social media may require bringing on VA to handle those duties, whether part-time or full time.
Many entrepreneurs and business owners have been able to regain their time and sanity. While also managing to put more cash in their pockets by hiring a virtual assistant. You don’t have to be a one person show (or circus) anymore. There are legions of VA’s ready and skilled to help you thrive in your business.
