Having a VA by your side
So, you’re a small company, you wear many hats, one day you are out pitching your most premium product to the elite of the business world, the next day you are stuck in the office under a pile of invoices, post-it-notes and a to-list that’s longer than your arm. Not what you signed up for?
I have a small list of just 3 questions that I want you to answer:
- What are the things you HATE doing?
- What are the things you CANNOT do yourself?
- What are the things you SHOULDN’T be doing?
Number 1. is straight forward enough: write down what you dislike doing in your business on a day-to-day basis. This could be anything from bookkeeping to administration.
Number 2. The second thing are daily elements of the company you don’t have any experience in, which could consist of social media marketing to graphic designing.
Number 3. This one is the ‘game changer.’ Ask yourself honestly: what shouldn’t I be doing? Remember, you’re not a superhero. Yes you can do anything, but you can’t do EVERYTHING!
A VA can both scale your business and shave off hours from your work week. With an experienced VA, you can IMPROVE BUSINESS GROWTH, get back to what you love, the real work during real work hours and back to family and friends. All the stuff that goes on behind the scenes can be taken care of for you and importantly the core tasks won’t be sacrificed due to lack of time. It is now possible to come back to your old self of previous years, where there really was such a thing of work/life balance.
On top of that you get the benefit of cost effective and reduced expenses as a VA works in their own office, using their own equipment, pays their own salary, their own PAYE/NI, pension, benefits. You just pay for what you need when you need it. No long-term contracts whatsoever. In fact, you can buy from 5 – 20 hours of time in one go and have no further commitment.
Yes – NO commitment!
Which means you could back to that pitching we talked about at the very start!
VAS business values are integrity, honesty, trust, accountability, commitment to clients, passion, fun! We gotta have fun, right?!?!
