Having a virtual assistant literally took so much time off my hands. Being swamped all the time with hours and hours of work literally just made me want to quit being a small business owner and give up. I had to do follow ups, send out emails, do all the work on our website, place orders, let’s just say I had to pretty much do every and anything to keep our business running properly.
That right there, is what I did wrong, very wrong. At some point when owning a small business you should delegate most of the simple task to a partner or employee. Small business owners have the tendency to do all the work themselves to save on costs. In all reality, you should be getting help with your business. If you don’t, all you’re going to be doing is burning yourself out. I’ve been through this, I think we’ve all been through this. Which is why I’m glad I finally decided to outsource and hire a virtual assistant.
Now I know what you think, hiring an assistant is so much money, why would you spend your money like that. But that information is just entirely wrong, it’s not overly expensive to hire a virtual assistant.
The most important thing our VA did for us, was help grow and maintain our social media. Due to having so many social media accounts, posting always felt like a hassle. Now all we do is sit back, relax, and watch our engagement rate go up. Which is why we decided to start a program that would make it easier for others to have access to virtual assistants. Our program is affordable and it is worth it, trust me, it pays to have somebody alleviate the stress from running a growing business. For more info on getting a Virtual Assistant click here.
