The Virtual Assistant field has become increasingly popular over the past few years. But why do you need a VA?
There are several reasons why someone would need a VA. The answer is different for everyone. Each business has is own specialized needs. But regardless of the specific programs that are unique to your business, there are foundational reasons to hire a VA that apply to everyone. I’d like to share with you the top 5 reason you need a VA.
Hiring a VA give you access to tools and resources you may have never known existed. Most VAs I know are incredibly disciplined and can get stuff done. They know what needs to be done and they don’t mess around. VAs are extremely intentional, making sure that every minute counts when completing tasks.
Working with a VA gives you a built-in accountability partner. We all have days when we’re tired and would rather stay in bed. I understand the feeling all too well. Take last for instance… I was supposed to create a slide deck for an upcoming webinar. Instead, I spent the day writing emails, making phone calls, pretty much anything BUT creating a slide deck.
Guess who was in the slack channel bright and early asking for updates on the slide deck. You guessed it, my team! They are good at keeping me on task, even when I’ve had a glass of paleo wine and went rouge with content! 😉
One of the roles of a VA is to be their client’s cheerleader. When I’m struggling with the loss of a client or just had a crappy day, I have my resident therapist that will talk me through the problem.
It’s a relief to know that even when things don’t go the way I want them to, my team is there to rally around me and give me the support I need.
There are times when you are positive that you’ve combed through every detail of a new program, webinar or email sequence. However, when you bring in a new perspective, a fresh set of eyes, you’ll find the blind spots.
I have a lot of ideas. I mean A LOT! This means that there are times when I’m running at warp speed with a plan. It’s great to have new ideas, but it’s also important to have someone to hold your feet to the ground and say, “Yes. We can make this happen and here’s how.” or “Are you kidding, lady! There is no way we can pull that off. Let’s try it this way.” Both answers have been incredibly valuable over the years.
I’ve been a VA for over a decade and I’m here to tell you that we are a culture of education. If you want to stay at the top of your game as a VA, training is key.
There isn’t a school that teaches you what you need to know in the Virtual Assistant field, so in order to stay at the top of their game, VAs seek out the training they need in order to make their jobs more efficient. This, in turn, affects the growth of your business.
I’ve met entrepreneurs who are feeling the pressure of working alone in their business. It’s hard to sail a ship alone. Especially when you constantly feel like your sinking.
Perhaps you aren’t as productive as you know you should be. Maybe you’re easily distracted and need someone to keep you on task. Or it could be that you just need someone to offer you support and give you a fresh perspective.
Don’t worry about the programs that you need them to know. Right now, you just know that you need help.
