Sometimes we get caught up in all sorts of other stuff involved with running a business, but are those things actually making you money?
Even if you think you can do everything yourself, imagine how much more money you could make or how much time you could save if you were able to focus solely on your core business and outsource the rest.
Ok, I know hiring someone such as a Virtual Assistant for the first time is a big step for you, and I'm sure you have plenty of questions if you're considering working with a VA!
But before we jump right in, ask yourself... "What are my highest-value activities?" Put another way, what are the most significant things you have to achieve to make the greatest contribution to your business? The second question you should ask yourself if you're thinking about working with a Virtual Assistant is... "What can I and only I do?". This is something that only YOU can do and if done well, can make a massive difference to the success of your business. And finally the third question and in my humble opinion the most important question when outsourcing to a VA... "What can I delegate so I have the capacity to focus on my core business?" These are tasks that take up the most time and can simply be outsourced to someone else such as a Virtual Assistant. You know the tasks in your business that fill you with that “UGH” feeling every time you have to start them, such as tasks you... HATE doing Take you LOADS of time Remember every minute you spend on these time-consuming tasks is the time taken away from activities that can make a real difference to your life and business. But you might be thinking... “Will I get real VALUE from working with a Virtual Assistant?” At first, glance, hiring a VA looks like money going out. But there’s more to it than that. Not only can Virtual Assistants pay for themselves, but you get vital help, so you can scale and grow your business. Improve your efficiency and most importantly your customer service.
