A virtual assistant (VA) is a great tool that provides rescue to businesses, especially startups and small businesses attempting to level up in their game.
You need more help because your business is growing! Don’t allow it to grow too wild and out of control before hiring a virtual assistant. It needs an opportunity to build a relationship with your assistant. Don’t hold back until you’re struggling to maintain your mind above water—at that point, it’s already too late. When you add something else to your plate (like training a VA), you are setting that relationship up for failure.
Instead, look ahead at the bigger picture. If you’re going for a marketing plan for the following year, consider the expansion you hope to achieve then consider if you’ll have the ability to manage everything by yourself. If the response is no, you need to add an assistant into that plan. Maybe you’re doing fine now, but if you take ten more clients until the end of the year, you’ll be working 80-100 hour weeks.
In the end, it comes down to one thing: investment. When it comes to hiring a VA, what you put in is what you’re going to get out. Go ahead and invest your precious time into developing a strong relationship with your virtual assistant, you’re bound to see benefits and more.
We know you will because we see the remarkable potential in you and your business, and we can’t wait to help you achieve it.
