Okay you finally realized that you can’t do everything anymore by yourself. It’s time to get some help for your business and for your sanity. I would say this is a sure sign that you need to hire a virtual assistant. I’m going to list 10 reasons a virtual assistant is needed for yourself and your business.
1. You find yourself doing the same administrative tasks and you are overwhelmed.
You need to be out promoting your business through networking or other means but you are always tied up with the administrative tasks in your business.
2. You are stressed out.
You’re losing sleep from the long hours that you have to put in your business. You don’t have any systems in your business. That’s where a Virtual Assistant comes into play to help you systematize your business. That way you will have more time and freedom to do the things you really need to do to make your business grow.
3. You have lost the joy in your business.
You never imagined that your business would take up so much of your time.
4. Spending too much time on a task.
You signed up for a new system for your business that you thought would be a piece of cake to manage. You know how to operate it but it is just taking up too much of your time. A virtual assistant is needed to help free you up from that.
5. Struggling with things that you are no good at.
Well we can’t be great at everything! Not saying that you can’t do it but if it is taking you longer than expected to finish the task, you should turn that over to a VA who knows how to get things done faster than you and give you some relief.
6. Not being able to spend time with family.
It’s been so long since you have had time to spend with family and you are feeling trapped, frustrated, and lonely. You feel smothered by the weight of just being able to keep your head above water.
7. No flexibility in your business.
You thought that having your own business would be the answer to your prayers. Not something that would be sucking the life out of you. Your business has left you feeling trapped and miserable. Nothing like you had imagined.
8. Constantly answering the same repetitive emails.
You are constantly responding to the same questions from your clients. You need a script of some kind that you can use to just send out for those types of questions. Problem is you don’t have time to write that script. That’s where a virtual assistant is needed and you need the help of a VA.
9. Missing appointments or overbooking yourself.
How many times have you embarrassed yourself because you either forgot an appointment or you overbooked yourself for an appointment? Oh the agony of it all. You have too much going on to keep your calendar straight. You need a virtual assistant.
10. You know you need staff but you don’t have a budget for a full-time assistant.
When you hire a virtual assistant it’s the answer that you need. You don’t have to worry about buying any equipment, office supplies, or paying for health insurance. How budget savings is that?
All successful solo entrepreneurs, coaches, and speakers have one thing in common. If you want to gain an unfair advantage over your competition then you need to invest in an online Virtual Assistant.
