Life as a business owner in our modern world is not easy. Often, we’re expected to be jacks of all trades, doing a myriad of jobs, each of which is time-consuming.
Before you can even think about spending some time creating innovative new products and services, or even selling those products and services, you have to first grind through a schedule packed full of other stuff: there’s staff to be managed, bills to be paid, budgets to review, contracts with suppliers to go through, and the list goes on and on.
It’s no surprise that so many struggle! In fact, in this book we are recommending this month, the author’s own attempts to manage his business led him to a complete burnout; he simply didn’t have any time or energy left to succeed.
That’s when he decided to do things a bit differently: he outsourced some of his work to Virtual Assistants (VAs).
VAs are staff who do work for you, but who are not in the same location as you. They can take on a huge range of tasks, from accounting to office management, thus allowing business owners and leaders to concentrate on the work that they’re best at and that matters most. By hiring VAs, they can enjoy what is known as virtual freedom.
There are two main reasons why VAs present such a great opportunity:
First, the internet allows constant communication across thousands of miles between you and your VA. No matter how far apart you are, you can work as if you’re in the same room.
Second, there’s a huge pool of available talent. There are millions of people currently working as self-employed consultants and freelancers – all of them are potentially available for part-time, full-time or even project-based work.
So, if you’re struggling to keep afloat in a sea of tasks, virtual freedom may be your life raft. Check out more on the topic by Reading: Virtual Freedom – by Chris Ducker
