How a VA can help you achieve your goals in 2019
Did you set yourself a new year’s resolution? Have you thought about your goals for 2019? Most people start the year thinking about what they want. Do you know one of the main reasons why people fail?
They lose focus.
Whether it’s going to the gym, reading more books, or trying to increase your income, many people get distracted by ‘real life’, feel disheartened, and therefore stop trying altogether. One of the greatest assets you and your business can benefit from is a VA.
A virtual assistant can hold you accountable for the business goals you set yourself for the year and help your business grow. Here are some real-life examples of ways in which a VA can help you achieve your goals:
“I want to be more organised”
Do you always put off your tax return until the last minute? Are you forever behind on claiming company expenses? Do you forget to update your CRM with new business cards? Instead of getting behind before you’ve even started, let a VA regularly and consistently support your workload. If the administration is slowing you down, then a VA will speed you up.
“I want to improve my communication”
Communicating effectively is an extremely valuable part of a business. Clients, customers and colleagues will all feel neglected if you are not keeping them informed and involved with the business. Pellings Business Solutions has extensive experience in over 40 different tasks that can be completed in an hour or less, so let a VA emails newsletters, send birthday cards, reply to new connection requests or communicate on social media on your behalf. Consistently focus on people, and these people are more likely to direct their focus on you in return.
“I want more time”
If the business side (credit control, finance, mountains of emails, etc.) make you feel like you’re dragging your feet through mud then let your virtual assistant clear the path. A VA can help you manage your workload, allocating defined targets or time slots that will enable you to streamline your process. The best part? This can be reviewed on a weekly or monthly basis to see how effective it. Still struggling? Then back to the drawing board we go to see what else can be outsourced.
“I want to make more money”
What makes you the most amount of money at the moment? How much time do you actually spend focusing on this? It might be a surprise to realise how much time you spend on the things that don’t make you money. Instead, outsource those non-money-making tasks to your VA who will get them done for you so that you can focus on increasing revenue.
