Why Hire A Virtual Assistant?

Let’s face it, we are all at some stage in our business “below the line” where we blame, we come up with excuses, and we’re in denial. We could be feeling these things in relation to a particular activity we need to do, or maybe it’s a holistic view to managing and running our business. 

Below the line is a comfortable place to be, you probably start with excuses and then you get drawn into the blame game and it becomes really difficult to make the step over the line to taking full responsibility. 

But of course, where we want to be is above the line – taking responsibility, being accountable, and taking ownership of our choices and our business activities as a whole.  

Recognising The Signs

We know that we need help but it is just too comfortable not asking for help or not doing anything new. Taking responsibility and becoming accountable or just taking ownership is where you need to be to focus on the right things in your business. 

One of the most common excuses in business is “I can do it all myself” when in fact you are doing it ineffectively and not achieving what you could be achieving by delegating it to someone who can do it better than you. 

Does all or some of the above sound familiar to you? 

It applies to most business owners at some stage of their development and how long you stay in this warm and comfortable spot is correlated to the success, or not, of your business. 

Why Hiring A Virtual Assistant Can Work For You

It can cost you as little as $100 for a virtual assistant to come into your business and motivate you to get above the line and to the spot where you are taking full responsibility and feeling in charge again. 

Having another member of the team that you have to explain things to kick starts your brain into reviewing what you have done and what you need to do to get everything pulled together. 

There are a few things that you can do before you hire a virtual assistant to help them get started with you and these are the things that force you into reassessing where you’re at and where you want to be. 
  1. Provide an overview of your business – what you do, who you help and how you help them.
  2. Provide the VA with the outcomes you want to achieve by hiring them.
  3. Give some goals and objectives that your business is aiming for.
You’ll find that just by talking through the above with your new team member, forces you into reviewing and amending and actually getting your business mojo back.

Your virtual assistant will ask questions about your business, they will be very interested in learning as much as possible in as short a time as possible and if you don’t have all the answers then you are prompted to go back and get them. Even if it means changing them because they just aren’t working.

I can guarantee that hiring a virtual assistant will reinvigorate you, motivate you and help you gain some clarity around you and your business.
