How many times have you heard the old saying ‘money can’t buy you time’. Maybe that was once true, but now in this virtual world, led by technology, this saying couldn’t be more wrong.
By working with a Virtual Assistant, you can offload those tasks that weigh you down, limit your productivity and cost you time! Those daily tasks distract from the things you are good at, the things you enjoy and the things that inspired you to grow a successful business in the first place.
A Virtual Assistant can be so much more than the person that handles the inbox or manages the diary. They can be a sounding board, a wealth of knowledge and a fresh pair of eyes. They often have years of experience under their belts, having honed their craft. They can save businesses time and money by having the skills and know-how to get things done in an efficient and cost-effective way, without the commitment of having a permanent employee on the books.
Think about how much an hour of your time is worth. Now think about how your time could be spent if it wasn’t filled with the everyday tasks that bog you down and limit your productivity or creativity. Why would you spend time doing things that someone else could be doing at a cheaper rate, in a quicker and more efficient way?! It makes sense to outsource these tasks, giving you precious time back to invest in your personal or professional life.
As a Virtual Assistant, I make it my business to keep an eye on emerging products, websites and applications, which are designed to help simplify, organise and speed up work! I belong to a community of remote workers who contribute to knowledge transfer in the industry, ensuring everyone can skill up and get the answers that they need, fast!
So what does this mean for my clients? It means they get to handover their work to someone who not only takes the workload pressure off their shoulders but also someone who can reduce the amount of time needed to be spent on these tasks, by using the best resources for the job and therefore saving time!
This is why investing in a Virtual Assistant buys you TIME!
