Virtual Assistants bring strong skills to the table, allowing you to stay focused on growing or running your business
Too much to do and not enough of you to go around? Too many distractions (think email, social media, text messages) keeping you from checking things off your to-do list?
You’re not alone.
“... The tools which serve as lubricant and keep knowledge flowing, such as email, the Web, and instant messaging, interrupt … work as well as cause significant downtime. The cost: $588 billion per annum in the United States alone,” according to Basex research.
But what’s a small business owner or startup entrepreneur to do? Even if an assistant isn’t in your budget, you can reap the benefits of one virtually.
Virtual assistants bring the right skill set to your business while working remotely. They allow you to stay focused on the big picture of growing the bottom line, without ignoring the small details that inspire loyalty and make growth possible.
Best-selling author/blogger/virtual mentor Michael Hyatt writes that virtual assistants are the future. Hiring his is “one of the best decisions I have ever made,” wrote Hyatt, who was formerly Chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, the seventh largest trade book publishing company in the U.S.
In the same post, Hyatt also lists seven reasons you might need a virtual assistant:
1. You feel overwhelmed with your workload.
2. You need help digging out from the administrative pile.
3. You know you could really ‘move the needle’ if you could focus more on what you and only you can do.
4. You want to be more productive and less stressed.
5. You know you need help but can’t afford someone full-time.
6. You don’t want the hassle of recruiting, hiring, and training a physical assistant.
7. You want—and need—more margin in your life.
In a posting on GreenCapital.com, Elliot Kline lists five benefits of hiring a virtual assistant, among them are: saving money, flexibility and filling a temporary need, all without sacrificing quality.
