Using a virtual assistant can shave hours from your workweek, but knowing which tasks to delegate can be tricky. When considering a virtual assistant, I suggest that you start with a list of tasks that take away from your main business goals. What are you doing that could easily be accomplished by somebody else?
Working remotely is rapidly becoming appealing to employees and employers. Both are finding and capitalizing on the many rewards. Employees are broadening their horizons, working flexible schedules, and finding greater work/life balance; thus creating a happier and more successful employee. Employers are realizing economic savings with the reduction of overhead and better output from employees that are truly enjoying what they do. Virtual Assistants are just one category of remote workers but they sure can save you a lot of time and aggravation.
Certainly running your own business can mean burning the candle at both ends. How many times have you been so overloaded that you just didn’t know which way to go next? Wouldn’t it be great to have your own virtual assistant? Well you can!! No, I don’t mean an assistant that shows up at your door Monday through Friday from 8 to 5. I’m talking about an assistant that is ready when you are, can do a lot or a little; an assistant that you keep in your back pocket for one off tasks or maybe a steady 2-3 hours a week to free you from pesky administrative chores.
No matter if you’re running the race in corporate America or forging your own path in entrepreneurship; a quality virtual assistant can be an economical and beneficial facet of your success. Sometimes, all you need is an Ah-Ha moment to get the wheels spinning…
