02 Jan How Can We Help?
What are we helping you with? Did you know that a VA can offer a whole range of business support services?
Have you given your VA a task or group of tasks? Have you found outsourcing this useful? Do they provide you with office-based help or do they work virtually? Does this matter to you? Perhaps try mixing it up and check in regularly with your VA to get the most from them.
It is also worth considering what further help you may need. Do you think that it would be worth your time to outsource other tasks? Complete an audit of your to-do list. What is realistic and what remains on the bottom of your to-do list month after month? A VA can offer one-off ad-hoc support, or ongoing assistance, depending upon your circumstances.
Do you need some inspiration? If you’re working on your own it can be difficult to be objective when it comes to your business and your possibilities. A consultancy style approach is possible with a VA. As Virtual Assistants are often skilled and experienced in a specific business field; with value to add and insight to share. This can help with providing inspiration for future developments.
What has worked for you in the past? Have you experienced some great successes in the past that you’d like to replicate? With the right assistance and a focused approach, you can exceed the results that you previously enjoyed. This is worth some time and consideration.
What are your growth areas? There may be areas that you know that you struggle with. Perhaps numbers really aren’t your thing, or you hit a brick wall when it comes to organising your admin. We can’t be good at everything, and we’d drive ourselves batty if we tried to be! Embracing outsourcing to get the most efficient results is always a smart move.
Do you need to review your progress? Finally, are you keeping track of how you’re getting on? Check your progress against your goals and plans on a regular basis, and, if need be, with an objective eye. You are much more likely to stay on track this way.
