Having a Virtual Assistant will not only give you back the hours in your day you never thought you’d see again, but the right Virtual Assistant will also help you to grow your business bigger than you ever thought possible.
That’s all good and well, but the big question is, how do you know when your business is ready to take the leap and hire a Virtual Assistant? 54% of Virtual Assistant users have agreed that Virtual Assistants make their lives easier.
If you and your business resonate with any of the 5 key signs that I have talked about below, then you’re ready to hire a Virtual Assistant.
1) Your business has started to grow and now you’re ready to grow it even more
It’s fantastic that your business has already begun to grow, and once you’ve had a taste of growth it’s only natural for you to crave more. Having a Virtual Assistant will help take care of the smaller tasks that are eating up your time so that you have more time to focus on the tasks that can help your business to grow.
2) You don’t have enough hours in the day
If it feels like you don’t have enough time, very quickly your standards start to drop as you try to race through every task. By outsourcing, you can ensure that you only focus on the tasks that you perform best at, along with lightening your load so that you aren’t scrambling to complete tasks that you shouldn’t be doing in the first place.
3) You’re struggling to meet deadlines because of your workload
Meeting deadlines is an important aspect of any business. If you can’t meet deadlines you will begin to loathe your workload and your clients will lose trust in you and may look elsewhere. The best way to make sure that you meet all deadlines is to have a fantastic Virtual Assistant whom you can outsource tasks to that normally distract you and hold you back from reaching that all important deadline.
4) You’re having to turn away work
Having to turn away work may not seem like the worst problem to have, but let’s be honest no business owner likes to say no to clients and have them take their work elsewhere. The best way to overcome this obstacle is to outsource the right staff who can help with your workload and create systems in place to ensure that you never have to turn another paying customer away again!
5) You find yourself sitting in on webinars and on YouTube trying to learn new skills that aren’t related to your field of expertise
This point here is one of the most defining, “it’s time to outsource” moments. Although it’s nice to learn a new skill, it’s not nice to be in a position where you have to learn how to do another job because your business requires it. You need to stick to what you are great at and outsource the rest.
