Do you need to be doing everything yourself?
Or could you grow your business and get back to doing what you love? One of the discoveries I find when talking with an entrepreneur about their business is that they are having a tough time spending enough time marketing and growing their business. They understand the value of marketing and want to make the time. However, they are simply trying to do it “ALL” by themselves. They are busy running their business and are not working ON their business.
Do you spend all of your time on the little stuff?
I understand owning your own business requires wearing a lot of hats. When leaving behind the “job” working for someone else, most small business entrepreneurs think they must work completely solo. The business owner feels they must do everything, including the tasks they aren’t really good at completing.
How much time does it take a professional to design a website? How much time does it take a small business owner who has no experience with website design? What about designing brochures, writing sales copy, processing orders, managing mailing lists, responding to every email and phone call and so much more. Before they know it, they are spending all of their time taking care of daily tasks and not out pursuing new business or talking with current customers to get additional business.
What eventually happens is their love for their work, the reason they started their own business in the first place, drowns in a flood of administrative tasks. One morning they wake up and they have lost that passion and positive creative energy.
When this happens a true entrepreneur looks for someone to take care of all that “busy work” so they can get back to doing what they love! This is where a Virtual Assistant can come to the rescue!
The official description of a Virtual Assistant is:
“Virtual Assistants (VAs) are independent entrepreneurs providing professional administrative, creative, managerial, technical, business office and/or personal support services. Virtual office assistants use the most advanced means of communication, and the newest and most efficient and time-saving office products and work delivery, regardless of geographic boundaries. Virtual Assistants work from their own offices, on a contractual basis, and abide by an established Code of Ethics requiring integrity, honesty and due diligence.”
