Every day seems to be getting busier, more demanding and free time has now become a luxury. And there are only so many hours in a day and things seem to be getting out of control. But what if there was some way to make things easier? What if there was a way to enjoy your morning coffee without having to worry about booking your trip for the weekend? Or having to deal with the admin that comes with it. The answer: virtual assistants. How about a life with more organisation and less hassle? One that allows you to get the work done you
How about a life with more organisation and less hassle? One that allows you to get the work done you need to, without having to pay for a space to work for an assistant to work in. A virtual assistant is going to make your life easier, and we can tell you why and how.
Cancelling on plans has become a norm for you. You don’t know if you are going to be in time and there is no way you are going to finish all 25 tasks before dessert is served. But having a virtual assistant allows you to keep your sanity and have a social life. Finally, you can start taking time for yourself and those around you. You can go on that weekend away you always wanted to. You can make it to your son’s soccer match. Everything that seemed impossible to achieve has now become possible, and it isn’t just the goals you have set for your professional life.
How many times can you count where you never got to the bottom of your to-do-list? Better yet, how many times can you count where you got everything done you needed to? It is almost as if the second you finish a task, three more pop up. Having a virtual assistant means that you have someone whose job is made to take the workload of you, while still providing high-quality work.
In any relationship, managing your time is essential. Whether it is a relationship with a colleague or spouse, you need to be able to have a time-frame that you can stick to. All you need to do is allow your VA the opportunity to make a schedule for you that is more efficient, and productive. You will find yourself putting your time and effort into tasks that need your full attention, while your smaller, yet urgent tasks, are being done by your VA, all in a day’s work. Allow them to set up notifications, find apps that are helpful, and remind you about certain tasks you may have forgotten about. Your virtual assistant can even book you a flight last minute and ensure you make it on time. They are there to ensure all emails have been seen and replied to. They are your very own fairy godmother!
Attention to detail
Sometimes it is difficult to trust someone with a certain task if you do not feel they could be giving it the same level of attention as you could. You may feel unsure of delegating a task to them as they surely don’t have the knowledge and same level of understanding that you do? However, with a high-quality VA, they will take the time to get to know you and absorb the work that you need to be done, to the standard that you want it done.
Being a virtual assistant means that your job is to get to know the likes and dislikes of your client. They will take the time to understand your needs and ensure that it is up to your standard. A VA will be there to send out personalised thank-you cards to clients you have. And they will help you build a trustworthy relationship with your clients and will be able to continue it on a regular basis.
There are days where you feel that you have everything sorted that you need. That all your files are in the right place and that all your deadlines are in order. But things mess up and the anxiety of not being able to get everything done starts to dawn on you. Virtual assistants can organise in their sleep. One of the greatest abilities they have is to organise. Organise meetings, phone calls, tasks, deadlines, tips, tools and the best resources to ensure you can tick off when something has been completed.
You may have a lot of tasks, but if there is one you should keep as a priority is mastering the art of delegation. When you have such a busy day ahead, you need to know that there are those who will help you. Your personal VA is there for you to lean on and help you through each day. They are there to provide ease and enjoyment and for you to live a life that is fulfilling.
Whether you are starting your own business, or wanting to grow it, there are going to be days where there is too much going on. You will start to feel out of control and you will struggle to reach your goals. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the tasks and deadlines you have each day, it is high time that you get yourself the perfect VA!
