“Sorry I can’t make it, I’m swamped with work”
If your girlfriends are so used to hearing that response that they’ve stopped bothering to invite you out, it’s time to hire a Virtual Assistant.
It can feel intimidating to outsource tasks at first but let’s visualize something for a second…
You (finally) get to spend Sunday morning hanging out in your pj’s and whipping up some banana pancakes.
You have plenty of time to finish up work and meet up with your best girls for a martini.
You get to have your first date night in months.
Getting your life back sounds pretty damn awesome, right?
You don’t need to keep skipping all your favorite things because you “don’t have the time”. You just need to outsource the tasks that are taking way too much of your time. Because, let’s face it, you can’t do it all and still have a life.
The to-do list of an entrepreneur is never ending.
There’s always a newsletter that needs scheduling, social media posts that need to go out and client emails that need answering. The good news is you don’t have to do it alone. And you don’t have to go through the annoying process and commitment of hiring an employee. A Virtual Assistant works as an independent contractor so there’s no strings attached. You hire them for X amount of hours a week or month and get your time and sanity back.
What would I have a virtual assistant do?
You’re probably spending a bunch of time on repetitive tasks. Whether it’s scheduling your weekly emails, setting up LeadBoxes or keeping your Buffer account topped off, find out what tasks have a process that can be easily outsourced.
If you find yourself spending an hour a week editing, formatting, scheduling and creating an image for your blog post, push those tasks over to your virtual assistant. You get to focus on creating the content that you love and go to yoga class knowing the rest is taken care of. Yes, you can start enjoying savasana again.
Focus on what you love
When you free up hours from the not-so-fun, smaller tasks in your day, you get to focus on the work you love doing, which is why you started your business in the first place. You can get back to designing WordPress themes or illustrating your next wedding invitation bundle and know those other pesky tasks are being taken care of.
More time to build your business
When you outsource the smaller tasks, you’re able to focus on the bigger tasks that require your attention. This can be anything from client work, hosting webinars or working on your next big launch. By focusing on these crucial tasks you’ll be building your business which means more clients, customers and of course, more money.
