I have written a number of articles espousing the obvious benefits of employing a good Virtual Assistant. These include saving you money by not having to pay a salary to someone you may not always need, making you money in many ways, saving you employing full time staff, something many people are now loathed to do - and taking the stress out of your day to day so you can get on with the business of making money!
A client awoke me to the fact that there was another great reason people need V.As though, when he said “Man if I knew you did that I would have employed you long ago – I HATE doing that!”
There’s an old adage that ‘successful people do the things that others hate to do’ …and I realised then that not only do I do this, but my business V. Assist practically exists because of it! So here are just a few of the things you hate to do that a good V.A will do for you! …
The client mentioned earlier was someone who hated having to do document renewals. In his case it was a passport …for others it is the common renewal of a driver’s licence. People hate to do this stuff …but we Virtual Assistants have the ways and means and know how to get these things done less painfully and more expediently. Let me just take that off your hands…
A related cousin to ‘standing in queues’ is ‘running around all day!’ The biggest nightmare for many people just trying to earn a living is having to take great chunks out of their day running all over the place! Taking kids to school and fetching kids for extra murals and kiddies parties, shopping for stuff you just didn’t have time to get on the weekend, theatre and show tickets, certain types of banking and official things that force you to go there – the list goes on and on – don’t you hate it? – isn’t it time consuming? – Well my time is yours!
This is an absolute pet hate of many, simply because most business people don’t see themselves as sales people and I think it was named ‘cold’ calling because many go ‘cold’ at the thought of doing it. Well fortunately this is one of the ways that V. Assist help to make their clients money and we don’t mind doing it at all. Even customer service calls and courtesy calls leave many of my clients ‘cold’, so just let me handle it – pass me that phone!
Admin is something that so many people hate. Let’s face it, especially people who are contractors and need to be out in the field all day, invariably spend hours of their ‘downtime’ catching up with admin, when for a really reasonable fee, they could have their feet up in front of the telly! Dissertations, data capturing, spread sheets, bookkeeping, translations, minutes of meetings and the dreaded filing! Again the list is endless and if admin makes you tear you hair out - don’t do it! Why settle for doing what you hate when you can be so ably assisted by those who love this stuff? Go on make my day – pass the admin my way!
I hope these reminders of the things you hate to do that a good V.A will do for you have convinced you that hiring V-Assist will not only save or even make you money, but will give you that priceless commodity – ‘peace of mind!’ Stop hating the stuff you have to do and contact us to learn how you can start building a better ‘hassle free’ business!
