Do you feel like you are drowning in your business? Are you constantly letting things slip through the cracks? You don’t have the desire and passion you once had when you first started your business? Many times are you left feeling overworked, and overwhelmed with all of the things in your business? Don’t have what it takes to work on your business? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then your business needs a virtual assistant, and stat. Realistically, you know you need help, but I get it, the thought of finding that perfect employee can be daunting. Instead of going another day, burnt out and bogged down, consider hiring a virtual assistant, and let me tell you why.
The 3 reasons your business needs a virtual assistant
- Saves You From Burn Out (or Restores You)
- A Virtual Assistant Will Save You Money
- A Virtual Assistant Will Save You Time
1. Saves You from Burn Out
It’s 2019 and you’re feeling stuck in your business. It’s another year, and you are desperately needing a change before you thrown in the towel. You’ve lost the fire you once had, because you’re stuck doing things you don’t enjoy in your business. This is your mind, body and soul telling you, you’re burnt out! Burn out is real, and it can, and usually does, happen to all small business owners at one point and time. The million dollar question is, “how can I avoid burn out?”, and the simple solution is hire a virtual assistant.
Hiring a virtual assistant can make a huge impact on not only your business, but your personal quality of life as well. Imagine being able to hand off tasks you don’t have the time for, or delegating responsibilities to someone you can trust; or simply having someone there to do the things you hate doing yourself. Hiring extra help equals having more time to do the thing in your business that you’re passionate about. Your business needs a virtual assistant to help you get back to doing the things you love, and save you from burn out.
2. Saves You Money
Most small business owners don’t have the budget to hire a full-time, in-house assistant, have the time to train them, or even the space to house them. The hassle of hiring an “employee” is typically why most business owners end up just taking on all the things on their own, regardless of knowing they need the extra help. On the other hand, when you consider hiring a virtual assistant, you put your business in the position to save money, time, and space.
A virtual assistant is considered an “independent contractor”, not an “employee”. The perks of hiring an independent contractor are plentiful; you don’t have to add your VA to payroll, you don’t have to pay taxes or provide he/she with benefits, you don’t have to grant him/her vacation and/or sick pay, you don’t have to have an office for them, or even simple office supplies, or anything else that comes with hiring an “in-house” employee. Your business needs a virtual assistant that will help you save money while still receiving the quality assistance you need.
3. Saves You Time
As the saying goes “time is money” and I mean that literally. As a business owner your time is valuable. You should be using your time handling parts of your business that are going to yield the best return. For example, yes, it’s super annoying when your email inbox is cluttered, and disorganized, but spending a few hours organizing it won’t necessarily make you any money. That is where hiring a virtual assistant can make an impact.
A VA will take care of the tedious repetitive tasks in your business. Your time should be spent on the most important work that brings in dollars, and that can’t be done by anyone else. Once you’ve delegated the time consuming tasks to your VA, you have the chance to capitalize on that extra time and increase your productivity and sales. Your business needs a virtual assistant that will help you spend your time wisely.
