Your business is pumping, and you want to scale. But scaling involves investment and risk and the biggest part of that risk is employees.
Employees are your highest cost and, as humans, are notoriously unpredictable. They resign, get sick…actually, we’re pretty gross when you think about it.
If your business had an org chart, what roles would be in it? Who’s the finance manager? Who takes care of admin? Who’s the sales manager? Who takes care of marketing?
Many of these tasks will fall on you if you’re a small business owner or solopreneur. You’ll probably get a certain amount of satisfaction from being so busy, but how much of your work is high-impact?
A virtual assistant takes care of tasks that take up time and mental space, allowing you to focus on what you’re great at.
As an added bonus, Linked VAs don’t come with all the usual administrative hassles that traditional employees bring.
Think of a low-impact job you’re currently doing – lead generation, social media management or bookkeeping.
Are you good at it?
How much time does it take up each week?
How much mental capacity does it take up?
Do you enjoy it?
Does it cause you stress?
In business, failure comes about slowly. Time poorly spent, jobs not completed, ideas not actioned, clients not called…
Spending your time on low-impact tasks that take up time can cause negative habits, which leads to negative results, which can stack on top of each other.
A VA can help you avoid or reverse this trend, quickly and effectively.
