What you need to know and what you should ask yourself first…
Virtual assistants have been a popular resource for businesses overseas for a long time now, and especially with those businesses that are international or have a team which travels regularly.
However, more recently, with the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns worldwide, the value of good quality and efficient virtual assistants has suddenly become glaringly obvious. Having full flexibility with how you “employ” your contractor virtual assistant in terms of hours per week or ad hoc, as well as not having to worry about their office set-up or systems is a real bonus for most business owners who could really do without the extra stress right now.
Virtual assistants are all set-up to work independently and effectively from anywhere, and our team already has the best online systems and proven Smart Assistant processes in place to support you and your business efficiently to whatever level you require.
So, now the question is, “Should I hire an assistant?”
First, ask yourself why you want an assistant. Business owners who hire an assistant typically have one of the following mindsets:
Relaxation is self-explanatory. These business owners simply want to free up more time to take it easy, travel, spend time with friends and family, etc.
Then, there are those interested in growth. These are our business owners who are actually trying to get more done in their day. They hire Smart Assistants to delegate specific tasks so they can focus on growing their business. Hiring for growth can be complex, and it should be well planned out.
Before you hire an assistant, know your mindset, and take a moment to consider the areas of your role or business that could be freed up with the support of a highly effective virtual assistant.
