Have you reached the end of your rapidly fraying rope?
You started a business to give your freedom, flexibility and change the financial status of your family. I have worked with many entrepreneurs over the years that left their corporate job in hopes of all three. The trouble is when we reach a point when we can no longer tackle the beast of business building on our own. So how do you know when you’re ready to enlist the help of others? How do you know when your business is ready for Priority VA?
I started by business in 2013. Before I even had a logo, I knew what I wanted my brand to represent. I wanted by brand to represent integrity. A portion of that integrity included reaching the point in my own business when I had to wave the white flag. I had to surrender to my pride telling me I could do it on my own and begin to build a team of people to help me, so I could in turn help others.
This was a big step. It was time to practice what I had been preaching. I had to remind myself of the truths I told busy entrepreneurs like myself…. A VA is an investment, not an expense. Did I believe in my business enough to invest in it? Of course I did!
How do you know when you’re ready to hire a Priority VA?
When I meet with entrepreneurs, I like to get into the nitty gritty details of their business. For instance, if you’ve been in business for a few months and are in startup mode, good for you! This is an exciting phase to be in. The startup phase is also a little tricky. Simply due to the lack of funds. Don’t worry! There are a lot of great options to outsource projects and still keep your bottom line in check. Give yourself time to grow and scale. Once you begin to see a steady cash flow in your business, you’re ready for a Priority VA.
But, why Priority VA?
I’ve come a long way since 2013. What started out as a solution to my own problem has turned into a solution for so many others. Priority VA started so I could work from home and be with my family. My husband and I were in the process of adoption and I needed to make myself available to my new daughter. I never would have dreamed that I would grow this machine into a 50+ team member business.
Each VA that I contract must, must, must share my same core values.
This is one area that I do not waiver on. Of course, I want to have VA with an amazing skill set, but if their integrity is lacking, they won’t make it onto my team. Each team member is a reflection of my brand, which is why each Priority VA must have these 5 characteristics.
Can a Priority VA really do what I need them to?
Absolutely! With a roster of 50+ VAs, there is a good chance that several of them would be a great option for you. I suggest categorizing the four columns where you spend most of your time.
- Things you don’t know how to do.
- (These are things you fumble with, need to look up, etc.)
- Things you hate to do.
- (for me, accounting!)
- Things you may enjoy doing but they always get pushed to the back burner.
- (Could be creating content, social media, etc.)
- Things only you can do.
- (Only you can do a podcast)
Once you’ve determined where you’re spending your time, you’ll know the style of VA you need.
Do you hate keeping track of invoices?Who has paid? Who is behind? Who do you need to pay? We have VAs that love to take care of those tedious details. This allows you to focus on selling.
Have you been dying to start list building or grow your social media, but it just too overwhelming? No worries! We have VAs that are tech savvy and have helped other entrepreneurs with their online marketing.
Each column will look different for each person. Regardless of the difference, one thing is true, Priority VAs will handle your business with the same care that you do.
