When people ask me what the point of a Virtual Assistant (VA) is, I always reply “to make you better”. While no two VA’s are the same, their fundamental purpose is. Namely to make their client’s life easier, one way or another. What that means, in reality, will depend on what it is you’re trying to achieve.
We all have a very specific skill set, and it may well be that you are the only person in your business that can do whatever it is that you do. If you are spending your time doing other things, such as answering the phone, dealing with mundane enquiries, typing up invoices or even getting involved in debt collection, your skill sets are being wasted.
If you are doing everything else, then you can’t possibly be focussing on what’s needed to drive the business forward, and that means you’re going nowhere fast. A VA can take over these time consuming tasks on your behalf, thus freeing your time up to spend on other aspects of your business.
If you constantly feel overwhelmed by how much you have to do, always say you wish there were more hours in the day (or bemoan how much time you actually spend at work) and want to be more productive and less stressed then it’s time you seriously considered hiring a VA.
The New Year is a great time to make some changes, both personally and professionally, and an experienced VA on your side could be the kick up the what-not you need in your business. Having someone who “has your back”, no matter what, could provide you with a large amount of extra time, to ensure you are moving in the right direction.

Have a great day, and all the best for the New Year!
