Time. We all have the same amount in every day, yet some people seem to get much more out of life than others.
Can we let you into a secret? Those go-getters, or simply those folk quietly getting on with lots and lots happening in their lives, have discovered that you rarely achieve everything you want, if you try to do it all yourself. Ask for, and use, effective help, and you’ll get far more out of life. Hire a VA to manage time more effectively.
The concept may be a difficult one, if you are struggling to build a new business or venture, and are desperate to keep costs down. But, if you step back and take a longer look, often you will find that doing everything yourself is a false economy.
First, your long distance review will notice that you’re very good at some things, and less good at others. For those latter tasks, you may not like doing them, or may be very slow and inefficient at doing them. Some people love selling, some love doing their expenses – but few people excel at both.
Hire a VA and be more productive
So, how about this for an idea? For those things you are bad at, Hire a VA to do them. Then, use the time and effort saved, to spend on those tasks you are more productive at, and – as important – on those things that you enjoy. You’ll get more out of your time, in the knowledge that you’re only paying someone else for their expertise to carry out stuff you’re not skilled at.
Yes, we can hear you saying, but I don’t have the resources to employ a junior, not even a part time help. No problem – simply hire a VA (virtual assistant). If you take the trouble – and it won’t take long – to discover the world of VAs, you will find a flexible, supportive service that you can hire at will, to help you with those challenging tasks – from bookkeeping, to managing your diary, handling enquiries and many more.
How can I hire a VA?
You can hire a VA by the hour, for specific tasks, so there’s no need to break the bank. They can even be used to come up with creative ideas for streamlining the way you do things, as often they do similar tasks (very efficiently, as it turns out) for other people. They may have great ideas about sharpening up your bookkeeping with a cloud-based system such a Xero, or know how to deliver email campaigns and a social media presence efficiently, to help with your marketing. All this, without having to employ a member of staff, or worry about their holidays, or going off sick.
The virtual assistant is a hidden tool, often used by those go-getting, highly effective people to help run their lives. And, if you get your act together and seek out a VA today, you could be one of them before long.
