“I am currently failing in maintaining and/or growing my business.”
“I have not seen my family in over a month.”
“I have no idea how to engage my clients online.”
What do these statements have in common? These are the most common confessions that I hear from small business owners when they reach out to asking for virtual assistance.
I partner with entrepreneurs that absolutely want to have a healthy “work-life” balance, but in this day and age it is almost impossible to achieve without the right people in place at the right time.
This is where I come in. The convenience of a Virtual Assistant in 2018 is unparalleled.
Why: as a Business Owner you are in control of every aspect of HOW MUCH.
How much support do you need to maintain and/or grow your business?
How much time do you spend on working on tasks that can be delegated?
How much are you willing to delegate so you can spend time with your family or doing things that you want to do, either personally or professionally?
Most of the business owners are intentional about setting themselves up for success, me included, but when you are a one-person show it is hard to do everything by yourself.
As a Virtual Assistant, I am a business owner just like you. At the beginning of this year, I was on a mission to do better with my social media. I had selected my social management tool, sourced & developed 2 months’ worth of content, and created my social media calendar.
The first month of the year I was making moves like Jagger, but come mid-February with the combination of my increased social media engagement, a new Google Ads campaign, and my regular clients back in the swing of things after the holiday season, I could no longer keep up with up with it. We are now heading into October, and I never got the momentum back from February.
Initially when I thought about it, I was so disappointed in myself, but after my 15-minute pity party I realized that my regular clients (and them sending me referrals) have been keeping me busy – so although I did not fulfill my social media goal for 2018, I am grateful that I managed to maintain and sustain as a one-person show.
Yes sustain, not grow.
Ponder that for a second – ask yourself where you are right now in your business as 2018 winds down. As I share this with you, I am in the process of hiring my own VA to handle my social media so I can GROW in 2019.
I feel that if you read this far, I know that you are wanting to up the ante and take your business to the next level in 2019 so I encourage you to start your search today for the Virtual Assistant that is able to get you there.
