Summer has hit and maybe you’re thinking I wish I could have a bit more “me-time”, taking the kids swimming, going for a walk , read a book or take that trip to see family/friends. Whatever it is that you want to do, remember that it’s possible. Remember you not only deserve a vacation but you need one! What’s the secret to more “me-time” AND your business not crumbling… the secret is… outsourcing to your VA.
Probably when you originally hired your Virtual Assistant, you were just so grateful to be able to assign a lot of the mundane tasks like doing your blog posts, updating your EXCEL Sheet, research etc. The more you work with your VA, the more you realize that you can trust them to do a lot of the tasks that you don’t have to concern yourself with and now you can start working on how to drum up more clients for your business
In fact, after working for a certain amount of time with your VA, you will come to see that you don’t have to be at your desk working all the time, constantly checking to make sure that everything is running smoothly, back-tracking on your work (or time) to make sure that a certain contract has been sent out to your client. Now, you are able to enjoy more time in the knowledge that things are being taken care of. Remember the plans you made with your family to take that long-awaited vacation just as soon as you could? Well, that time has finally come! This is what is now possible for you since you have a great VA working for you!
Having a great connection with your VA does take baby steps. You need to start off slowly. However, once your VA has earned your trust, the amount of tasks and projects that you can give to them are unlimited and again that means more ME-TIME!
Your virtual assistant can:
- Pay your invoices through PayPal or whatever merchant service you use. You can even get them established with their own personal logins with permission to view only what they need to
- Manage the payments to your affiliates
- Do customer service duties
- Write and send out emails to your database
- Add new products to your shopping cart.
- Create landing pages
- Do your scheduling
- Coordinate Webinars, Telesummits etc.
- Represent you in social media, or blogs/forums
- And the list goes on and on..
The Bottom Line
You see how simple it is to only work with a Virtual Assistant, you can proceed with whatever your plans are for your business and your vacation. So start making a list of those tasks/duties that you prefer to hand over to your VA. You will thank yourself for it!
