The need for hiring a Virtual Assistant is growing rapidly as online Entrepreneurship grows. Creative Entrepreneurs specifically have a unique need for hiring a Virtual Assistant. In many cases Creative Entrepreneurs spend (or should be spending) the majority of their time creating new products or services. While the creator creates it leaves very little time to manage the behind the scene magic that makes business happen.
What is a Virtual Assistant?
I have been asked this question so many times. The short answer is that a Virtual Assistant provide services in a remote location to business owners. However that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what a Virtual Assistant can do for a busy Entrepreneur.
The key is finding a Virtual Assistant that understands the vision of your business and specializes in the unique operations specific to your business. Seeking a Virtual Assistant for your business is a big step and a major deal. First you must be clear about your reasons for seeking a virtual assistant. Then you must know exactly what you need and what you are willing or able to pay to get it done. To help you out I’m going to give you five reasons that you are ready to hire. You decide what you need done and hire the right Virtual Assistant to git it done.
Five Reasons to hire a Virtual Assistant.
You are Busy
As an entrepreneur who create products and services you’re probably always busy. It takes a lot to run a busy. It also takes a lot of time to keep up with marketing online and making sure that your audience is always aware of what you have to offer. This is where a Virtual Assistant can help you by taking over some or all of those tasks.
Your Business is growing faster than you can work.
Have you been praying for abundance and more customers/clients? Now that day has come? If so did you prepare for the growth? Have you stopped focusing on Social Media even though that is where your customers/clients found you? Then it’s time to use that abundance to keep the momentum going and hire a Virtual Assistant.
There are business related tasks that you dread doing.
You know that you hate creating content for social media. You also know that you really don’t like Facebook but your audience lives or Facebook. Or it may be Instagram. Regardless of the task there are some that you really care not to do and because you dread it. It usually takes a long time to complete or gets left to the someday file. You’re missing out on your increase by not recognizing when you need help.
Having an employee is a big obligation!
If you hire someone and put them on payroll then you will incur all kinds of expenses, liabilities and you’re subject to regulations. If you contract a Virtual Assistant you eliminate going down that road before you have to. Also depending on your business you may never need to have a payroll.
You have mastered the understanding of working smarter not harder.
Working smart means that you know what you’re good at and what you need help with. It means getting the help that you need in the areas that you avoid, lack expertise or that are too time consuming.
