The benefits of using a Virtual Assistant

Running a business is hard and lets be real there aren’t enough hours in a day to get everything you need done by yourself. Being a business owner can involve juggling a whole load of different responsibilities and it can be tough and stressful. There are many ways to combat the number of entrepreneurial responsibilities a business owner can face day-to-day and one of those ways is to hire a virtual assistant or VA as they are commonly known.

What is a Virtual Assistant?

What is a virtual assistant? I hear you ask. A virtual assistant is someone you can delegate daily tasks to and who can help support you and your business. Focusing on growing your business and nurturing clients doesn’t always have to mean you have to bury yourself with a mound of unwanted tasks. Hiring a VA can exponentially help you gain more time to focus on more important tasks at hand, which is definitely a must for some business owners. Taking the bulk of a business’ workload can be awfully stressful and can also end up being detrimental to the longevity of the business. Being burnt out and trying to juggle business life and home life is not the healthiest way of managing… well, life. 

Reasons to work with a Virtual Assistant

Ah, I see… you still aren’t fully convinced are you? Well, here are some core reasons for why you should take a VA on: You will gain more hours in your days to focus on more important tasks. There would be no time constraints as a VA can adjust their schedule to suit your chosen hours. You would be able to take some well needed time off and regain perspective on your business and personal life. You would be able to reduce employee-related overheads as a VA doesn’t receive a fixed monthly salary but would be paid based on the number of hours they work. Surely these are enough reasons to sway you? But let’s be totally sure we have covered everything and look into a few more reasons but more in depth.

Ideal for startups

Virtual Assistants are great for startups as most start-ups end up collaborating online and the use of a VA can add support, a different perspective, and also an extra pair of hands. When hiring a VA is a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee it does make a whole lot of sense especially for start-ups to utilise this role. Furthermore, your business will be able to advance quicker towards profitability and I mean… who doesn’t want that?

Say goodbye to administration duties

A VA can take care of all of your administrative tasks while you can then handle the core operations of your business. Be smart, hire a VA and choose the areas of your business that you need to focus on. All you have to do is be sure that the VA you choose to hire is the right fit, clearly communicate all the responsibilities that need to be handled, and then conquer the world!
