If you need more help, that means your business is growing! Don’t let it grow too wild and out of control before hiring a virtual assistant. It takes time to develop a relationship with your assistant. Don’t wait until you’re struggling to keep your head above water—at that point, it’s already too late. When you then add something else to your plate (like training a VA), you’re likely setting that relationship up for failure.
Instead, look ahead at the bigger picture. If you’re making a business plan for next year, think about the growth you hope to achieve and then ask yourself if you’ll be able to manage all of that growth on your own. If the answer is “no”, which is likely, you’ll want to add an assistant to that plan. Maybe you’re doing fine now, but if you pick up ten more clients before the end of the year, you’ll be working 80-100 hours weeks.
In the end, it comes down to one thing: investment. When it comes to hiring a VA, what you put in is what you’re going to get out. If you invest your time into building a strong relationship with your virtual assistant, you’re going to see all of these benefits and more.
And we hope you do, because we see the remarkable potential for you and your business, and we can’t wait to help you achieve it.
