You try to keep your expenses at a minimum, but at what point do you invest in outsourcing some of your tasks?
If you find yourself in any (or let’s face it, all) of these categories, it’s time to invest in a Virtual Assistant to take over one of your most time-consuming tasks.If you're seeing these signs in your biz, it's time to hire a Virtual AssistantClick To Tweet
You constantly feel overwhelmed
If you’re in a constant state of overwhelm, invest in your sanity and your happiness. A virtual assistant is there to take the weight off your shoulders. There’s a ton of things that need to get done in your business, but don’t feel like you have to do it all alone. It can make a big difference in your schedule to hand over your most time-consuming (or frustrating) tasks.
You’re doing the same tasks over and over
Be more productive with your time by focusing on the work that only you can do. Think about what tasks you have a system for – integrating your LeadBoxes into your blog posts, scheduling your social media or newsletters. Whatever it is that has a system in place or can be easily taught, hand it over to a VA. Your time is better spent focusing on larger tasks and work that you can’t pass off to anyone, like client work or writing your next e-book.
You can’t keep up with the work
If you’re working 10 hour days and weekends, stop running yourself into the ground. There’s only so much work one person can do. And as your business grows, so will your workload.
You won’t be able to create your best work if you’re constantly struggling to keep up with it all. You don’t want to rush anything or put off your launch for 3 months because you have a to-do list a mile long.
You have no time for a life
You can’t even remember what it’s like to not work past 6pm. And your friends think you’re mad at them because you skipped your weekly Starbucks date 5 weeks in a row.
Trying to do everything yourself, while sacrificing your life, is going to make you resent your work and lose the passion you have.
I know what it’s like to think about every little investment you make in your business. I thought about that $29 investment for ConvertKit for weeks and weeks until I finally decided that $29 a month was well worth the time and energy I’d save creating opt-ins and managing my email list. And let me tell you, it’s one of my favorite investments I’ve made in my business!
