When you think about all of the things that need to be done to run your business, do you immediately think about multitasking, time management, schedules, phone calls, and a load of other things that seem to be taking up your time that you don’t enjoy doing at all?
If the answer to that question is ‘yes’, it’s time to hire a virtual assistant.
The first and most valuable thing that hiring a VA will do for you is giving you the time and bandwidth you need to focus on, and implement, the dream. Entrepreneurs need space, mental capacity, and cognitive function to do this. As a leader, when you stop focusing on the parts that you’re passionate about because you’re bogged down with too many tasks, your business stops growing.
One thing we hear all too often is, “I do all this myself because I’ve looked into hiring an assistant and it’s just not in the budget.”
Guess what? A virtual assistant actually saves you time and money by working with you to figure out what exactly needs to be delegated so that you can focus on growth. Hiring a VA will give you the space to focus on core operations or the next milestone because the daily tasks, although necessary, don’t belong on your to-do list. You will be able to increase your time spent on profit provoking strategies while your VA handles the backend. And by the backend, I’m talking about all of those emails, phone calls, social media management and lists of things piling up on sticky notes on your desk. Businesses that are growing can reduce the cost of hiring a full-time, in-office assistant by hiring a VA. Hiring a VA will help you increase productivity levels which will result in increased profitability in your company. If you find the right VA, one that matches your personality and is passionate about what you’re doing, they can even help provide the strength to your weaknesses. That’s why the matching process is so important to us at Rivvly. We spend time getting to know you and your business and making sure that we match you with someone who will fit into your company seamlessly.
Hiring a virtual assistant company or firm like Rivvly also means no overhead cost, no having to invest in office materials like a computer, no wasted time in the office when there is no work, no benefits, and all the productivity! Most importantly, hiring a firm provides the benefit of knowing you’re covered if your VA goes on vacation, has an emergency or overall change in availability. Most of the time, firms don’t require long term contracts either (Rivvly does not).
Bottom line, if you’re finding yourself frustrated with all the little items on your to-do list, if you’re needing more efficiency, help implementing processes, and/or help organizing daily operations, hiring a virtual assistant is the best, and safest option. So, no more procrastination or avoiding your to-do list -- just add this one thing (Hire a VA) to the top of that list and watch the rest get done!
